T. Hodge,

Any of the Losi crew using the Much More Motor Cooler at the Reedy Race or any other time? I am wondering if we can make it work with the motor in the car by connecting it through the bottom.

Anybody else out here know or have tried?

Ahhh nuts! I got bit by the rear-toe bug!

Todge: You'll have mail from a very angry customer in a minute (just kidding dude!) I love the new instructions dude! After building the MF truck I was a little dissapointed...but I'm extremely happy with the *undisclosed amount* I spent on this car

This car is free man! Can't wait to load it up and run!

I have one and its nearly impossible to press the clip on over the motor while installed. Maybe over time the clip will loosen, but I have just pulled my motor and just used it that way.

Default Big Tweak Issues

Hi All.

I've had my JRX-S for a few months now. Hasn't gone too well since I've had it, still struggling to sort out tweak issues that've plagued it since day one. I've gone over it (pulled down, rebuilt ) three times now in the past couple of weeks to try and resolve an issue....

I'll put pressure on the centre of the back of the car (yes it's a flat surface), and the front right wheel will raise slightly, almost off the ground. The left front wheel wont raise what so ever. I've checked the shock shaft length whilst the shaft's have the shock ends on them. All appears to be fine there. I've re-adjusted droop and ride height with no such luck yet to fix my problem. The chassis is flat as a tack and doesn't change whether the top deck is on or off.

As a result, the car will hook severely when turning left because when weight is on the outside front wheel, the inside left raises badly. The car pulls heavily to the right on a hard launch too. I think I've just about ruled out everything I can do.

Can anyone help?

Thanks, Tim

Pins are fine. Arm movement is fine. Also forgot to mention the kit is 100% standard, except for RPM Tie rod ends.

your shocks are working right arent they? maybe one is overfilled and it isnt letting the suspension compress and making the car act like this?

Are the rear ball cups hitting on the rear hubs under compression of the suspension? You have to grind the rear hubs a bit or the ball cups.

I had the exact same problem! Every single one of the problems that you described.

My car was launching to the right also. I also seemed to have a tweak in the car. To resolve these issues I loosened the rear diff, adjusted my shocks so that they were all the exact same length (used a caliper), I then set up the car again via the droop screws and shock collars. After eyeballing everything to ensure that all wheels were coming off of the ground at the same time without changing my ride height, I set the car on a tweak station and now all is well.

BTW, you may also want to make sure that your suspension is not binding. If the pins connected to the arm are too tight you may have some issues especially if you are using a soft spring up front.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Today, I learned a few more disaples of body painting...

There are three kinds of paint jobs

a) The ones that are the fatty (ie: cool looking, professional air brush jobs
b) The ones that kinda suck the fatty (ie: Axel's new Pink Stratus 3.0...LOL j/k)
C) The ones that seem like the only fatty involved was being smoked by the painter (ie: My new Skoda )


Pictures will be posted later
