1. Take your time.
2. Take your time.
3. Take your time.

All kidding aside, you must properly prepare the chassis before you go bonzai on the assembly. Otherwise you will just end up taking it appart when your batteries dont fit or you splinter your chassis when you hit a dot. Take your time on the rear battery slot.

The Accord has more steering. I also have ran the new PF 3.0 and it works great too. Very close between the PF 3.0 and Accord.

1. Glue the edges of your chassis for protection. Only do the chassis and not the front and rear top brace.The problem with doing the top braces is that it may tweak your car when you go to put it together. The added glue will cause the tight fitting parts to not sit properly on the bulkheads.
2.Like Tony said, make sure you file the cell slot enough. This is critical with the fitting of 3700 cells.
3.Enjoy!!

A few things I forgot to mention.

Rear camber link- 3/A
Front Camber Link- Middle

BK Brackets-You will need to cut about 1/8" off the shock end to get the correct uptravel since you are moving the shock up on the arm.

todd: hello! i ran my jrxs today for the first time and it was good except that my car would spin out on a right turn... i tried setting the throttle exponential on
-30 on my 3pk and adjusted the dual rate to 80% it somehow fixed the problem till it rained a friend of mine "FBJ" gave me some sand paper pads for the front diffs, he told me to use it for a front spool. what does it do? and how do i turn my diff into a spool.. do i just remove the diff balls? the jrxs had so much initial turn-in WOW anyways, FBJ told me to set the rear suspensions to the outermost hole and the fronts to the innermost hole, will try out my car tomorrow at the track

So, when I walk into Home Depo, what tap do I need to buy for the locating pins?

So they are going to be alloy? Wow thought that was just going to be for your test units!

Any idea how much those anodized puppies will cost us? I've been impressed with the low cost of parts for the Losi, I hope you guys continue to impress by having the new tray be affoardable.

Oh, and thanks for the quick answer.

Todd - Will drilling additional holes in the F/R arms accomplish the same effect that the BK Brackets have? What are the part numbers for the brackets?

Thanks.

There isnt enough material on the arm to drill an tap a hole further out on the arm. The BK brackets are very easy to make. 1 side has a thru hole and the other has a tapped 4-40 hole. Use a longer screw on the shock bottom and thread it into the thread side of the bracket and let the excess rest on top of the arm. Just make sure your brackets are even.

Todd, is it really necessary to tap the spots where the locating pins go.....will it really break your driver if you don't do that?

Default Re: TH Current Asphalt Setup

What kind of asphalt track is this setup for. Our track is usually setup open and flowing, only a couple corners that you have to go all the way down to half throtle. It is also sealed asphalt with traction added (grape pop). Just courious about the front tow out.

I have been running Kinwalds setup from So-Cal on a very similar track to what you just described and the car is awesome.
