Ya Bowser had it. His car looked nice. But the XXX-S still was strong. Other people might have some but they might have not had enough time to build it and get it set up. That might be y there was only 1.

Thanks for the tip, I'm make the switch as soon as my replacement part gets here.
After having a part break on the car, would you now consider to use a servo saver... or do you think the car doesn't need one??

Take your body reamer and make a hole right in the middle of the ballcup-make sure you look for debris in cup then re-install. It wont bind anymore.

Any doubts should be done after people view this. The battery is STILL touching the rear bulkhead even after all the work. And your telling me a simple battery tray replacement is going to solve the problem.

Take a look...
This is a serious amonut of material to grin away just to fit batteries. Are you concern that the rear blockhead may break, cos it doesn't seem to be enough material left to be strong enough for the riggers of racing, (IMHO)?

Tony--I will be doing the MORL series this summer but thats about it. I am going to either asphalt nats or Vegas though. I haven't decided yet thats why I need to test rubber set-ups.

Yea, I did say no more on road but a week in Vegas is something that I really can't pass up. Plus I now have a really good reason to tell the girlfriend to let me go to Vegas without her.

Default Holy moly, I raced the JRXS today!

Well I finally got to rip back on my JRXS! Asphalt, CS-27, 19Turn, Losi Skoda 2, started with kit setup......

Initial impression is that this car has strengths where other cars do not. It changes direction so damn fast, yet won't get unsettled. That's probably the most explotable feature. I did not have many "option parts", had to tune around the kit parts and the chassis adjustability. The handling of the stock setup.... super turn-in, pronounced mid-corner push, decent on-power steering at corner exit.

Dave Grabowski lent me a pair of 30lb front springs which defintely allowed more roll up front, adding a bit of entry steering. I moved the rear shocks to the outer hole on the tower, added a bit more entry and exit steering. I feel the car needs springs with ratings closer to one another. I also added the anti-squat and anti-dive spacers included in the kit. They worked as advertised, but couldn't make up for the large disparity in spring rates. I think the car will be incredible on our slippery asphalt track once more springs and swaybars are in my hands.

Dave had 27# front and 15# rear with a rear swaybar. His car looked much more tossable. He also had the front one-way diff, which I think made the biggest difference between our cars, giving his car more steering everywhere, period.

One of the young kids at our track looked at my JRXS and said, "your motor's in the wrong spot!" We just about died laughing!

Building my jrxs now and I have the same problem with my ballcups, they are very tight. And a question, what do those set screws with the little spot with no treads on the end of them do? And how far should they be screwed in. What happend with the jrxs instrutions. I dont think they are as good as the usual losi instructions

hi guy's

For tight ball cups, the best and easiest fix is to lightly squeeze them (while on the ball) with a pair of pliers. Move the pliers around a little. Sneak up on it, increase the pressure as needed. We have done this for quite a few years. You really don't want to ream or cut the plastic if you can help it.

The set screws with the smooth area are for the pivot locator pins. They need to be adjusted for different roll centers (to go through the shims is used).

For the instructions, please use the fold-out rear page (don't ask me how I know). This page explains the different signs, important information, and screws to be used

Ron

Greg?-- Did you run the center one-way or the center spool? Thanks

I did have concerns at first, but after it was finished, (and after running today) I no longer had any concerns.

Like I said, I had just bought two brand new high quality packs, and I wasn't going to just not use them...

...so I did what I had to do. If I had it to do over again knowing everything I know now, I would have picked different batteries or a different car.

But I didn't find out until I got them both at literally the same time.

But since the Losi reps here seem to think this is going to be solved with a simple battery tray change then I'll just run what I've done now, and wait for this magic tray. Once it comes, I'll get new rear bulkheads.

People are like "oh my god, how could you do that to a new car.....eeeeeeekkkkkkkkk<insert horror movie scream there>. But what they forget is that this is the beauty of these "kits". Every part can be replaced individually. So after a pair of rear bulkheads and this magic tray, I'll be right back at box stock JRX-S kit standard.
