Depends on what you call official.

Still on www.teamlosi.com as of 3/24/05

"The ingenious design, unmatched adjustability, and superb assortment of specialty racer parts and accessories make the JRX-S the most advanced and versatile electric sedan ever offered. The serious racer can quickly and easily change between indoor and outdoor set-ups in a matter of minutes. The JRX-S includes a neutral handling Skoda body and 24mm racing wheels ready for the tires of your choice. Look for the JRX-S to be available around the first of the year at hobby shops and racetracks worldwide.

LOSA0255 JRX-S Expert Racing Sedan Kit Street $349.99 "


Maybe it's not an official release date, but it's pretty safe to say that we've passed the first of the year and that we are officially in a delay period...and don't give me any "what year" crap.

I'm not hating. I can wait for the car at this point as 1/12th scale is keeping me plenty happy. I'm sure it's gonna be worth the wait.

I saw one of the UK team drivers running the new car this week (first time I've seen a car in person / held it, got to poke it around a bit etc) the car looked sooo good on the track (indoor carpet with foams) I almost came home and ordered one....

Yeah that ad made me salivate. I noticed the inside scoop for the FK05' in the same issue also said multidiff on front. I guess that was kind of an error, depending on if you are in the US or not.

Noticing the mid oneway and spool are standard with a one way diff optional. Looks like the Losi was well put together. Options for one or two O rings on the shocks...interesting.

Speaking of which, why would someone choose one o-ring over two? I've heard of this being and option in some shocks, but never understood what the benefits are.

Anybody got a notion...

O-rings help control the rebound of the shock. More o-rings, more rebound... less o-rings, less rebound.

I believe it affects your rebound dampening. 1 O-ring less rebound and 2 O-rings more rebound. Not sure though. Guys correct me if I'm wrong here.

Guys Clam down abit.....Just think....Team Asc was a year late on the release of their car the TC3. In other words the Release date kept being pushed back....Just like a video game. It is not ready to be relased, so rather than send out crap, they keep working on getting the parts quality they want befor shipping them out.
