Default Aluminum battery tray

I have been running the Aluminum battery tray. I saved 5 grams on the battery tray by drilling 1 hole in the center of the 8 wide parts on the tray. The tray is holding up great with no bowing or bending it is still strong as ever. If you are racing stock and weight matters you might want to try this.

I'm ordering a JRX-S and was considering getting a ceramic ball bearing upgrade. Does anyone have any recommendations on which brand is good?
Thanks!

Do the people who have the aluminum tray all run for Losi or is it available to the general public now. If it is avail. I would love to know where to find it.

DJG24- I think the trays shipped out to LHS's this week...I imagine you might see some early next week at yours?

airbear87123- What kind of racing do you do? Ceramics are very expensive and won't last forever. I think you might be better off spending your money elsewhere- tires, brushes, spare parts, etc.

Darkseid- Blasphemy!!!!! You should be hitting JRXS.com all the time!

windix60- Sounds cool, but what better place to have 'extra' weight on the car than the absolute lowest part of the (bottom of the) chassis!?

Default please help!!

hey guys,

i was wondering if anybody has come up against a problem with the front springs rubbing on the outdrives when the inner top shock mounting position is used. i have the shock tower in the low position, the diff set low and the front arms are set in the middle. basically as per the kit setup.

i've checked out a few setups on the losi website that use the inner mounting hole, but they make no mention of any other changes made to acomodate it. is there some detail i'm missing?

any help would be much appreciated.

thanks, jarrod.

Jarrod,
Use a 0.060" spacer, this will give you the clearance you need to run the top shock on the inside.

Regards,
Peter
