yeah that i did.........The problem is the bearing on the Motor plate side does not sit flush.....I even heated the plate to allow it to drop in, but no luck....I pulled the bearing to make sure there was not something down in the hole, but it is all clean.....I would hate to drill it, and go to far.......LOL.....But for now i will leave it, finish the rest of the car, and ether purchase a new motor plate, or call losi.....LOL.

Not that it really matters; but, I just figured out how to install the Front Spool Drive Hub as opposed to the One-Way unit.

Was wondering about the reason for those six holes in the spur gear...Duh!

I had the same trouble. I ended up sanding the E and C clips to remove the rough finish on them and also in the end lightly sanded the aluminum spacer just a touch. No slop and everything snaped together.

That was the "problem" part. Wonder if what's wrong with yours was the actually issue. I just heard "mismachined". James may know.

Guess it will make it a terrific "gravity car" without it...

Heck, I have polished every screw so why not!! They looked crappy all grey and bumpy. I too polished the shaft with a scotch brite and then with semi chrome polish. It looks like Orange Co. Chopper Chrome Baby!!

Anybody on the spool ? ???

Understood that the car would come with diff rings that would be dimpled on one side to hold the balls (acting as a spool) and the smooth on the opposite side for standard diff action. Maybe that got axed.

Still don't see any spool parts listed in the JRX-S Parts List. Seems like the pads is the only way to go.
