Thanks
Go to www.teamlosi.com, scroll down to ask the team and let Todd know the skinny on your situation. Give him your mailing address and it 2-3 days you will have new rear hubs.

As far as popping off ballcups, I have only had the steering servo ballcup pop off the servo arm, once. That was in a direct hit head on with a sideways car that spun on a straight section at speed. I have cart wheeled the car and tumbled it a few times, but have never popped off any other ballcup, lucky maybe?

MY hubs looked ok, until a few guys mentioned it, so I stared at my car for a while and determined that mine looked to be off a bit as well. A quick hudy set up system proved me wrong though. I did biuld a couple cars for customers that had bad hubs though, it was Very obvious and didn't take a second look......Staring at em' always makes em' look like they are off, LOL. A quick test is to stand the car on the rear chassis straight up(nose in the air). Then use a can or similar item to check 90 angles on each side. If your car does have bad hubs, it will be very easy to spot, no question. If they look close and it's hard to tell if they are off, they are good...................This has been my experience so far....Jim

Todd is driving home from the Speedworld Cup as I write this.

In the third race, Todd's and another car touched at the end of the straight sending his JRX-S into a very unfriendly board. The sound of the hit was the loudest I have ever heard for a 1/10th scale car and Todd's car was DE-stroyed...Even broke the battery.

Josh Newman TQed in TC Mod with his JRX-S; but, Barry Baker (AE) won the overall by taking the first two races of the AAA Mod event. Matt Francis took the third main.

At Speedworld Cup, Todd advised that we should use thin washers (.020) on the bolts between the BK Shock Bracket and the front/rear arms on our JRX-S cars.

Hey,

My FK05 fund is now gonna be emptied in favor of the JRX-S fund (shhh!)

Just a few questions.....

What are the measurments required to make the BK brackets? Will I be needing them on low-med grip carpet w/rubber or foam? Do you guys use 'em front and rear?

When will the "magic tray" be availible in my favorite repitable hobby dealers? All my 3300 packs are shoe-gooed. I gather they will work if I shave material off the rear bulkhead (which pushes them forward)

-Dan

BK--I do not know about their use on carpet but if you want to make a set the holes center to center are .275" apart. Drill one completly through and the other one needs to be threaded. Let us know how they do on carpet!

Dan,

Dont take a pass on your bulkheads yet. Do all the work on the slot in the chasis till cell fits flush with bottom. NOt a 0.010 above-flush!! Then do the rest of the work on your battery tray. Its plastic and its cheap and readily available part. I have a unmolested tray that fits all my batteries but two. I dremeled a battery tray till the door closed and that tray is for those two packs and my 3800's-when they arrive.

If you do need to shave a bit off the rear bulkheads-trust me-its VERY little.

Ray

Thanks Pook!

It'll be a little while until I get the car. Gotta get rid of an XRay first. Then save up for the difference in XRay selling price and JRXS cost. Anyone got a back-up car they'd trade for an BMI XRay or a hopped-up NTC3?

Default Gear ratio

To anyone if I run the 41 tooth pulley in front what does the internal gear ratio become?
