Soo many cars to choose from. I got my eye on the JRXS though. Hope we all don't have to wait too much longer for the release. I'm sure we'll get the full scoop at the Chi town hobby expo before the worlds. So not too long.

It probably is hearkening back to Losi's roots with the JRXT. I may be wrong on that though

Saw 3 cars yesterday. One was a very early prototype, with one piece top deck, a different chassis, bulkheads, diff, etc... The others were the same as we saw on the forum.

I've got to say that Todd and the Losi team have done their homework on that car, it won't suffer the same problems as the pro3, but I don't think the car is suited for european tracks, the wishbones are way too small to be efficient on a typical bumpy UK track. David Spashett was quite quick on saturday practice but on sunday in the rain his car was sh...

One thing i don't like is the way the pack is kept in place : get rid of these two screws...

How about a threaded bottom part with thumb screws from the top. Or a post/tube combination with a body clip securing it inside the car.

There are ways to do it without screws, bear in mind, it is still a prototype car, and they still have a lot of work to do on the car, let us give them the credit that they did not want the car shown because it's not ready yet.
