Default Components on JRXS

The car is coming with graphite for every part that can be graphite such as arms, bulkeads, hubs(0 degree), caster blocks(4 degree), and spindles. It is also coming with a 128t Kevlar spur gear so get your 64p pinions ready.

vtl1180ny-This car is totaly user/newbie friendly. I feel it is more user friendly than the XXX-S.

Randy-We have been running anywhere from a .030 bar to a .080 bar. Lighter bars on asphalt and thicker bars on carpet.

Was there really any doubt? For $349.00 it would have been just wrong to not have the graphite components.

I don't know why people assume that having all graphite components make a car less neebie friendly. Graphite or not, you hit something hard enough, your gonna break!

The only thing that makes this car non neebie friendly is the price. I know I wouldn't recommend it to a new racer for their first car. Why??? Cause their likely to expect too much. Can't you just hear it..."I spent this much on this car and the best IT can do is 5th in the D-main" (cause remember when your new, you think that your great when you win, and the car sucks when you lose.....wait a minute...that happens with veteran racers too!) When I'm asked whats a good first TC, I always point people toward the Xray Raycer. Low price/high performance, and neebies will feel good when they take a "budget" car to the C-main win or something.

Hey Todd, are plastic gears going to be avalible from Losi, or do you know if Trinity plans on selling BK's adapter for regular gears?

I assumed it was graphite because of the pricing, but didnt want to say that until it was confirmed

I ordered a slew of Trinity blue screws for this thing, got some blue shock collars too I want to order a set of Losi titanium ball studs, can anyone tell me what sizes I'll need to equip the whole car, and if they are standard or short height studs please.

I'm going to run a MS for TCS, but JRXS will be for everything else. I got the MS to be really fast, but it was harder to drive than the XXXS.

Hey Randy! I do not know for sure about those bluse shock collars fitting since the shocks are all new and use a smaller diameter spring. You may want to check.

It's only an 8 buck loss if they dont fit, and they'll still work on a Losi off-road car. I've seen pics of MF's with his red collars, and also seen pics of peoples cars with blue collars. Hopefully they are the same, but o well if not.

Come to think about it a friend of mine used Losi shock collars on his X-Ray. And the x-ray uses smaller springs like the new Losi shocks....soooo maybe they will fit..

THodge--Can we get any part numbers for the sway bars and shock springs and Skoda 2 body so we can go ahead and get them preordered at the LHS? Thanks

Speaking of parts, does Losi usually get a good supply of parts out with the first shipments of their kits? Or they usually come out a week or so later?

I ask because I remember the large amount of people who got their HPI Pro4's when they first came out, then spent a 2 weeks not racing while they waited for one or two commonly damaged parts to hit the shops. Not good!

I guess we have a head start on the parts thing since some of the parts are shared with the XXX-S.
