I hope the car is competetiv to the TRF, FK 05, BD or RDX. I've seen the Prototype, but with foam tires it simply wasn't fast enough. And the Handling wasn't that good too. But well see.

Still patiently waiting, while driving my G+.

There shouldn't be anything to worry about. Because all those cars you mentioned are supposedly not "right" according to people here. And since Losi is taking time to make theirs "right", it should dominate all the not "right" cars..."right"?

For me, as long as the car handles on asphalt, I'm happy.

I understand your concern though...since I believe the best results at big events have been on asphalt. If I'm not mistaken.

Isn't part of the fun doing mods where/if needed? Im sure it's more of a setup thing rather than a car thing. Just have to experiment a little. Remember a good car can make you look good, but driving it right makes you a winner.

Two things. RCCA website. Ryan Cavalieri is now with AE. I also noticed that The Losi website has a quick click to the JRXS that is new.

At the Region 2 carpet regionals last weekend the only Jrxs there wiped up the field. Craig Xavier had his car dialed. He tqed 19 turn by 4 seconds and won the main by almost a lap on the field that included a few past national champs. The carpet was low bite which I think helped out the jrxs, becasue it didn't look quite as good at the nats as it did at The Track this weekend.

I also remember Kinwald winning 19t at the Novak race and there were plenty of JRXS's in the 19t and mod class at the nats.

The two german guys running the JRXS prototype without the standoffs, only have problems with the JRXS. Since they have the car they can't keep up with the others. They have compared the car with the RDX and the corally is 5 secs faster than the JRXS. That's what I'm talking about. Huppo Hönigl also has/had problems with the JRXS. And I remember Spashett leaving Losi.

Tell ya what...before you go comparing this car to another car by a suposaid 5 seconds, have the same driver, drive the car with his prefered setups, then compair the cars to lap times. Your statment to means squat, ultill something like that is done.
