Thanks

try using trinity R-minus connectors, very similar to the old "corally style"connectors. i think that jrxs bill had some pics posted somewhere.

Several races only part broke was a Front A-Arm. That was a faulty servo horn problem. Steering locked one direction in a chicane. OUCH!

Other then that pretty darn durable.

I haven't broken one thing on the car. I did see one person strip a servo horn though, but that might have been due to something else.

I rolled my car and it slid onto the end of the back straight during practice. Despite me calling out to go high, one of the guys running modified slammed into it. My car popped at least 4 feet into the air and came back down with a severely distorted body. One of the worst hits I've taken ever. The casualties? I lost two body clips. This thing is though.
Before my first qualifier I switched to a front spool. The front spool/center one-way combo worked great. Definately worth trying.

No way with Deans plugs which I had been using on my XXX-S cars. Corally or Trinity connectors work perfectly. No soldering for me.

Posted a picture several pages ago but here is another.

Lastly...This is an IB3600 pack with Promatch low-wide battery bars between cells and Deans 2 bars to support the Corally plugs. Slipped a little shrinkwrap on the plugs for safety.

Very Nice Bill. I found these new connectors from www.balsapr.com. They are used on Brushless airplanes. I plan on running these. they are gold plated, and cheap. They also stay in the plug very well, so there is no worries about a plug comming out.

Gary--I have only broken a front A arm and the servo arm. I broke the A arm in practice when I caught one of those stupid rubber strap S hooks and it sheared the arm and a small bit of my new body. Later I lightly tapped the wall on a wide turn and the servo arm broke. I really think it was cracked from the earlier race but ya never know. Yesterday 0 breakages!!!! I have a stock replacement servo arm but I am running an aluminum one for now with no trouble. BTW Jim has not broken his JRXS at all. Later

SETUP !!!!!!

I made the BK brackets and used the Hodge setup yesterday. I started with my regular set-up and the car was twitchy and a lil loose in and off the corners. I put the Hodge setup on the rear of the carwith the BK brackets and the car was much better. On my last practice run I put the rest of the setup on the front of the car and it was DIALED!!!!! Car ran super! My spool held up and was TQ and 1st place winner on the day. With the full Hodge setup the car was soo consistant on turn in - center - and exit. You guys running on Asphalt should try this setup.

* One note on difference between the Hodge setup and what I ran was I still used #60 front pistons. I did not have any others to use.

I finished mine last night. Man I love this car. I just looks fast. Getting the wires to look clean was pretty easy. I was suprised at how much room there really is. Soldering packs in wont be a problem.
