Thanks steve-will they come in different inboard toe in amounts as well as different kick-ups and anti-dive-or will we use shims? UMmm-is it too obvious I want one of these too? lol

When it comes to manufacturing, (I should know. that is what I do) Very few times when something is put on a timetable will it ever hit on time without delays. That is the nature of the manufacturing business. When it comes to people releasing products it's the same thing. Actually a 3 month time frame by most every standard is good. And that is if there are no changes. Losi did change the front drive shafts. And who knows. When the aluminum blocks changed to molded ones, it may have presented a problem with manufactuing just in quality/density of the part..then you have to changes molds and such. I do remember a brittle arm problem with the XXX-4 when it came out.

In the end that is why I keep my cars for a while. Still have all but one of them. But that is me, and I'm not a racer only, I do it for fun as well.

Default Ultimate Info

wow last 2 pages I read, chalked with Ultimate Hobbies info and, well release date stuff.

Let me give you guys some facts.

Ultimate Hobbies
1. will take a pre-order for a JRX-S
2. has at least 36 ordered for initial sale
3. Will ship the the car in cont. US FREE
4. is moving to a larger location in MAY
5. may start parking lot racing again then
6. If they dont have a part, tell me I know who to complain too, just give me part #

JRXS
1. release scheduled for mid march still
2. The parts will be avalible soon after the car is released
3. Dont worry guys, life is good

JRXS.com
1. counter, caused some problems, and was removed

Fact is there may not be an actual release date, shops in major cities may get the first order, and smaller out the way way places will get them soon after due to just shipping time, and they will trickle across the United states and the world

P.S. I love you

Todd said tonight that the car should be released next week if all goes well, so I dont know where the April thing came from, but I dont know if there is any better source than Todd.

Todd was cool enough to tear down one of his used LVD's so I could check it out tonight. The axle and dogbone slide together with a ball end on one, and a slot for the ball on the other (kind of like front roll bars on nitro cars) they both have very small barrels like you'd find in a CVD only micro, the sleeve goes over that, pin the axle and dogbone, then shrink wrap holds the pins in place since the barrels are now too small to fit set screws.
