Thanks,
Crash: Yes, you can use the same size bearings for the front LVD's pins as well as rear CVD's. You may need to remove a SLIGHT amount of material around the LVD pins (do it by hand) to get the bearings to fit easier.

Btw pooky if you see this I got mine too, in the process of building it a lil at a time.
LMAO It was too much almost! I finally raced it Sunday and man what a ride!!! YIPPY!!!! It was worth the wait.( sort of ) The car is faster than me and I have to do some tuning but she will be perfect soon. I have to build up a spool and start getting my set-up dialed. With the G+ I had to drive the Heck out of it to run good times but with this JRXS I was faster running relaxed and smoother lines. I did however run the most consistant lap times of my life all day long. Missed TQ by 4 sec. on the out of box set-up. On our track a spool is the fastest ticket so Pooky will be sporting one next race!! WORD UP!!

Once you get yours ready you need to bring yo butt over here and run with us soon. Bring your JRXS with you too for the TCS warm-up race in July. Later.

No gas but I will get you a couple beers and $5 worth of singles for the " Late Night" entertainment.

Memphis is bout 6.5-7 hrs to Tulsa and bout 9 to Ok City. You may want to fly!! LOL Might be cheaper than driving.

Hey fellas. Did some testing with rear sway bars and diff heights. Carpet-foam of course.

Rear bar definitely provides more steering and the stiffer you go the more you get. I ran the .050 and moved the ball ends in to make it stiffer and what a difference.

I raised the rear diff in hopes of freeing up the rear end. I did not notice a huge difference, but the car was definitely not as tight.

With both of these adjustments the car was really good. Seems that I am always searching for more steering in modified and that combo sealed the deal. I did not make any other changes to my set up I posted on www.jrxs.com.......

More testing to come.

Any other findings from the weekend?????

RB-good test night tonight. Rear sway bar is key. I went 0.3 sec fasterin 19t and the rear bar I think was most of that.

I too tried the raised rear diff and juries out for me. I think it frees up car in corners too. ALmost makes rear float-but in hard corners-car rolls a lot in back and even lifts the inside wheel a bit. I ran a couple tenths quicker in stock too. I am preffering Parma PLaids and Purples in stock and Parma Cyan and Magenta in 19t.

I ran the diff low in 19t and high in stock-but I think that in really high bite-the diffs gotta be low or car will lift.

I have tried to get my car to lift, but have not been successful 7 turn full rip into a 180 and it stays flat as a board. The car is dialed.

I'm in the middle of building my JRXS and I've just gotten the rear end on the car. I'm noticing the rear toe is completely different from left to right.

Without putting it on a gauge, it looks like there's maybe 2 or three degrees of toe in at the left rear wheel, and zero or maybe a half degree toe OUT at the right rear wheel.

Am I doing something wrong here? I don't recall seeing anyone else mention this in this thread.

Thanks for any advice.

1* hub backwards on the left / 1/2* backwards on the right with the 2* toe block will get you fixed up with a total of 1.5* of rear toe...

Then it's normal to run different degree hubs in the rear on this car? I had to do something similar on my XXX-S, but I'd have thought that Losi might have doone something about this by now.

Not really a problem I guess, if that's the way the car is, I can cope with it.

Is everyone running different rear hubs from side to side to get equal rear toe, or is it just some cars that are off?

Seems kinda weird, but the TC3 and the G+ like you said was the norm. I was told that Losi will prolly be coming out with alum. blocks which might fix this.

I would say with any molded parts this will happen due to tolerance issues???!!!???!!!???

Still a great car and getting BETTER!!
