Like I said earlier-the cars as tune-inable as it is tune-outable.

Just wondering how many people who have the jrxs run a servo saver? I have just about finish building and wiring up my car and was curious. I have a kimborough servo saver, but since losi includes servo horns in the kit, I was wondering was it necessary to a servo saver? (I have a Airtronics digital 97458 -think that's the right number)

Just make sure you can use the servo saver and run the correct gear ratio. The space between the servo arm and the motor can get really close!

I am using a Kimborough mid-size servo saver in my JRX-S...Useable pinion sizes for Monster based 27 turn stock motor racing (30-34T) are pretty much no problem with the standard 128T spur. Going down to the optional 118T spur gear will take care of the clearance issue (requiring 35-40T pinions) for PK2 and 19 turn motors.

And changing over to the PRS spur gear adaptor will lead to other optional ratios too.

hi everyone. you have probly all heard this a thousand times before so if u have i apologise. i am thinking of running a jrxs with a trf415 so i was wondering if it is possible to use batteries wired with corally plugs in the jrxs or will they hit pulleys/spurs? has anyone found a way to connect batteries in this car without having to hardwire? even if the corally plugs were mounted sideways would they fit without interfearing with anything???

Karn,
You can use the corally plugs, but you mount them horizontally with a spare battery bar bent at 90 deg in the valley between the battery cells 1 & 2 for the pos+, and cells 5 & 6 for the neg-. There are some photo's if memory serves me right pages 96, 97, 98 (I think).

Ray,
Paul is one of the reasons I bought the car. He has been a great help over the years while I was racing slot cars. His attention to detail when working with slot car chassis and bodies is exceptional as will be the work on the sedan. Look at the Parma Alfa, its still the base carpet body! When I heard he was running the JRXS I knew we would have some fantastic help.

Numans' car looked the best, It seemed as if it were on rails. Are you guys going to post RROC setups?

Thanks,

I gave it to our web guy last week so it should be up soon.

Well my skeptisism is gone.

I drove my car yesterday on carpet, using most of the lemeuix setup on the losi site and it was pretty dialed to start. I made a few changes and every time= I could actually FEEL the change. It is also very snappy off the corner compared to my XXXS...

the only things different on my setup is that I am running non offset -.5 degree hubs, my diffs are high.. and I added the second thinnest rear bar.. it steers so well.. carrys speed.. and the down travel stops are a nice addition as they kept the chassis from scrubbing speed in the corner..

hopefully asphalt this weekend

This car will go fast.

Default Battery hole

I just got around to building my JRXS. Pretty excited. Is it really necessary to file down the battery hole in the chassis? I was going to leave it alone but decided to check here first. WIll the batteries not fit? I am running 3300 from promatch. Thanks everyone.

Im not sure if it will fit or not, im pretty sure that you need to chamfer that last slot for the battery, or it will sit too high.

You need to file the edges of that one slot for proper battery fit.
