Im very frustrated and would like to know if anyone has run into this before and how to fix it.... Thanks in advance!
Timmy- This a quote from Todge:

"We have been having some racers having problems with saying their chassis are not flat once the car is built. This is due to one reason. If you glue the edges of your top plates this will create a small bead of glue. The problem that happens is that the plates will not sit square against the bulkheads due to this glue build-up. You should not have to glue the top plates at all. "

Hmm, 13th place driver Hubert Hönigl is dominant for the LRP TCM? How about your American JRXS drivers who came in 60th and BK who came in 41st? And then 8th place at the Snowbirds again for Mr. Hönigl is dominant?

Trivia....What was the last major race a shaft drive touring car won?

Would that not be the 2005 DHI Cup with Atsushi Hara and his Pro 4? The big race right before the LRP race?

While it is alwasy exciting to have a new car for everyone, lets not count our chickens before they hatch.

Happy dremeling JRXS owners, and keep those building tips coming, I look forward to building mine when it arrives.

timmymontoya ,

Also, check if your front top plate is not backward because it is not symetrical.

hope that help

No news yet. I think the last word Mr Hodge posed on this board was that they were basically still working on them.

it is critical that you tap the spots where the locating pins go....or youll probably be buying a new 050 driver...

also...make sure you file the rear battery slot on the chassis so that the cell is "slammed" perfectly in the chassis....if you get this rite your packs will fit perfect....and be sure to check out Todds tips on the Losi web site...

late
I will be posting some setups soon. Probably after this weekend. I feel good about the car....very fast at 4 Fun Hobbies.

The battery trays are being made as I type this. We should have them ready in a few weeks. After they are machined they will be off to the anodizer then to packaging.

Default BK Brackets on rear

Here is a pic of the BK Brackets on the rear. The hole on the bracket going through the arm is a through hole and the hole that the connects the shock is a tapped hole. You will want to use a 3/8" screw to connect the shock and let the screw rest on the arm.
