Speaking of the BK bones, have any of you spotters out there seen any of the team guys using them on the car? I don't think I've seen any pics with the bearings installed on the axles...

I know its ready to use them out of the box, but what situation would call for them? Is it a spool only situation or what...

Default Where's the Team Losi Guys for info

I just wonder where all of the Team Losi Guys are?

I realize that Team Losi does not have to answer to anyone, but...

If someone from Team Losi would just get on here and let everyone know something,,,Maybe this thread would be a little less...

I don't mind waiting for a Top Quality Product, but I would just appreciate someone in the "KNOW" to say, what's going on and we will release it when we're ready...

All of the rumors, mis-information, and people that know people who know people that know what's going on,,,

So, how about Junior, or Hodges or Francis or any one at TEAM LOSI doing the Customer Service or Customer Relations thing and spending a few minutes to let those who want the car in on what's going on..

I maybe only one customer, but it would seem that there are alot of us, "One Customers" and as time goes on,,,the "One Customers" are starting to add up. I realize that a bad product or a problem product is BAD, but continuous lack of REAL information can be just as bad.

Luckily for me,,,bad weather has somewhat somewhat tempered my attitude towards the waiting, but,,, And if you tie this together with the fact that you can't get a Spektrum System to save your life either,,I'm beginning to get a bad feeling...

I want the JRXS because, it should be a main stream car when finally released and supported with parts, unlike some of the recently or soon to be released alternatives, however,,,it would seem that those alternatives are beginning to be more and more available and supported everyday.

All I ask for is some real information.

From what I understand it will be hard to see unless you look inside the outdrive. Meaning that now you will not have the bearing exposed like on the XXXS outdrives they will be consealed inside the outdrive. The way the outdrives are setup they have two size slots. One size is for the standard drive pin and one slot is for the drive pin with the bearing. This is how it was explained to me maybe Im worng but thats how I understood it to work on this car. If thats the way it is it will be a really nice feature as you wont have to wory about the bearings falling off and they are sealed in a way.

But as far as when to use them Im not sure it might be a driver choice thing maybe Todd can fill us in on that.

Kevin is right on in his decription.

Kinwald said he always he runs them. Makes his car feel like a freshly built car all of time. They are extremely smooth and slop free within the outdrive.

I never found a time when I didnt want to run them on my XXXS, they do feel like a brand new outdrive every run, very smooth.

I cannot tell you when, but I can tell you.......... It is a Team Edition kit right out of the box. Carbon fiber plate chassis, top decks, and shock towers. Arms, hubs, caster blocks, suspension mounts are all graphite. Hard anodized threaded shocks (best shocks out). Titanium turnbuckles, metal shielded bearings, aluminum swing rack link, etc..........

You may want to get some aluminum or titanium screws and that's it. Roll it!

And this is exactly what I'm talking about!!! PERFECT example!!!

Why should the customers waiting for the car have to argue over when its coming out. Each quoting sources that they honestly believe to be telling them the truth...

Answer: They shouldn't...

I just hope Bluecow isn't correct, cause there is no way I'll make it to another "mid-such and such" fantom release.
