Dude, check out my previous post, the 3300s still fit PERFECTLY in my car. You can also go back and take a look at the full pic of my car I posted a while back. That full pic is with 3300s installed.

Don't believe me, ask a couple of guys from the Kansas thread who saw me run today.

Like I said before, I am not just some idiot who took a hacksaw to his kit. You think you know a better way, pick up a pack of 3700 and get to measuring. I'll be waiting for your results...

Darkseid.

Used strips of medium emery paper to round the edges. Used 1" wide strips on the straighter edges and 1/2" wide strips on the more curved sections (45 minutes). Per Todd H, I then set the chassis plate on its edge and started with a drop of Losi CA at an upper corner corner and let it follow the edge. When the CA would stop moving downward along the edge, I would apply another drop about 1/2" above the spot it had progressed to. Just kept doing that until I had made a complete rotation of the chassis plate (15 minutes). Then I hung it to dry for another 30 minutes. It looked so good, I didn't bother sanding it.

Did do a bit of touchup sanding some of the interior holes too. Didn't like how sharp they were.

How much material did you have to remove on the rear battery slot?
Initially, I removed enough material with a small flat file to make a single battery cell almost flush with the bottom of the chassis. After assembly, I had to go back and dremel away more material to make the last cell flush with the bottom of the chassis. That 's what it took to eliminate any issues for fittin my 3300/3600 battery packs.

Go to Step C-04 and look at those "Locating Pins" going into the Pivot Blocks (inner and outer). Don't just screw them in...First you need to tap the related holes with the special 4-40 screw that you should have found early in the assembly process.

Hope this helps.

I kept building and finished the sucker in the late morning. Too late to go to Modesto for the NorCal Touring Car Challenge.

During testing on the smooth asphalt in front of my house, it was excellent with a stock Monster motor on rubber using most of the setup (and one-way drive hub) provided by following the JRX-S instructions...Car transitions REALLY WELL. Can't wait for next weekend.

And you could then split up those two 3700 6-packs and make three 4-packs for 12th scale. That's where I have used a 3700 pack.

Absolutely...You have to follow the numbered sequence (#1-9) of putting that puppy together. That took some time to figure out.

Qualified 3rd and finished 6th in stock. The 6th place was stupid mistakes because the handling of the car made me overconfident. Without the mistakes I would have been 2nd. I usually struggle to stay out of the B.

The only other JRX-S at the track finished 1st in stock and 2nd in open mod. Incredible, considering the car was still in the box Saturday 4:00 pm and missed the first qualifier because he was still bolting in the motor.

Here are other things I did wrong:

#1) Step C-05 says "Caution! Ensure the dogbone is inserted into the narrow slot in the Outdrive...". TWO OF MINE WEREN'T.

The back and forth slop at the wheel is enormous when you put the dogbone pins into the wide slot in the outdrive. Pretty easy to fix though.

#2) I bought ceramic diff and thrust balls for the new car. Didn't know that Losi was supplying the new Caged Thrust Bearing as a standard part. I like the caged unit and find that didn't need to use the ceramic thrust balls.

What Losi didn't say:

#1) Because the servo is in backwards, you have to reverse the action of the servo with your radio. Thought the multi-link steeting linkage was going to accomplish that; but, it doesn't.

#2) See page 22 for the info to adjust the Up-travel Limiters.

RTM...RTM...RTM...RTM...

Score is 2 to 2; but, the car is a winner!!!
