RBLove--Man C'mon down and leave that tire truing machine at the house and spend a weekend running without getting all of those black boogers in your nose! You might just like it! Bill will let you sleep on the couch as long as you don't snore too bad LOL

I backed that run with a run that was about a second slower....put the car away...took it back out on Tuesday with no changes and I was 6 seconds slower for the night. The traction was still high but something changed. The xray always feels good and it took me 4 heats to figure out what it might be doing. Without a sponsored Xray guy around we are left to figure things out on our own which there is nothing wrong with but we just have not been able to do it. I have driven the xray for 3 years because its easy to drive....Now that I am better, I am confident I can wheel something else around and go faster. Put toghether the Losi and it was fairly good. by the main, the car was absolutely awesome but I had a motor problem and I was less than quick. I am looking forward to the next few weeks with the car.

Cool deal Eric. I think you will like the car. Doesn't hurt that Chicky is up there just laying it down. He is very good with set up.

Eli and I have been at it every weekend trying different things, but traction is pretty low. I will be coming up to The Gate quite often when Sunday racing starts. Hopefully Ray Darroch will be coming over quite a bit and Blackstock comes out of the wood works. We will have an awesome modified class.

Good luck with the car and if there is anything I can do for you let me know bro.

J land - So far we have found with a few simple mods to the rear suspension the car is better on UK tracks without the BK brakets.

By all means give them a try, see what you think and let us know

Speedfreak UK, Thanks for the info. I think I will just give it a try. I will probably be the lone Losi down here (until I start to win, then the sheep will flock..lol) in Cornwall/Devon area.

Can someone make a reccomendation for me?

I can't solder worth crap. I'd probably inadvertantly find a way to blow-up a couple cells. Besides Deans/hardwire....what would be the best method to get those cells in there?

BlackKat: I use Power poles and some people like Corally plugs, they're both pretty good, I never had a problem with any of them.

I'm currently using the Corally plugs myself. I don't really like them but there is now a whole lot of options for that car unfortunately.

I just switched over from hardwiring to corally plugs yesterday. So far they're a little tight and near impossible to remove (I use a long, thin tool to push the plug out from the opposite end - hopefully it'll loosen up). Soldering packs into the JRX-S wasn't too hard, but using the same packs for both my TC and my BK2 made for some funky soldering iron angles. The corally plugs are just easier.
