Bobby, nice to hear! I assume the ears on the personal transponder need to be cut off in order to fit between diff/tower bulkhead. If you can comment ..... is the JRXS sensative to roll center changes? Actually, just tell us anything about the car! We need something to pull ourselves along 'till the car is released. Do women dig it? How about pets?

I've actually been pretty calm about the waiting process. But I too would like to hear something...anything...

Thats one thing I liked about Yokomo, they would release a .pdf of the car's manual before the release. Just to give people something to oogle over for a while.

Stan dosen't mean any harm. He just likes to push my buttons. I have to get him to sell his barely used XXXS now and get the new JRXS. He's a monster truck guy but I think I can get him an the tarmac. LOL

Greg, and anyone else interested... First off, my personal transponder doesnt have the ears cut off. It fits in there just fine with them on, plenty of room.

Now, as for the car itself... its awesome. Its easy to drive, its easy to work on, you can actually FEEL adjustments. On the old car it seemed like you could take the oil out of the shocks and not notice a difference... on this car each adjustment is really noticeable because the arms are so short and the car is so reactive. Roll center is very adjustable, i always go back and forth with raising the rear roll center .020, and thats feels like a big change.

The new shocks are dialed, way easier to build and the pistons are super easy to change, which is nice. Most of you may know this but its same ratio as the XXX-S, 1.83, so gearing is nearly indentical. The drivetrain is really free and best of all, its got a ton of punch, especially in stock.

You guys definetly have a reason to be impatient with this car, but trust me, the wait will be worth it in the end.

I have a couple different setups (carpet, of course.. all the asphalt is covered with snow!) I'll post the setups once the car is closer to being available.
