So how is this car on ashualt ? and compared to the rdx if anyone had a rdx and now is using losi, Here where im at just a hand full of people uses these cars but you dont see them every race day so I cant tell anything about the car or nothing. I just want to know if its a car that I would like as equal or more than my current rdx.

I love my JRX-S way more than my RDX. However I only run foams on carpet right now but I am thinking about giving rubber tires a try. I just picked up a set of takeoffs today.

The main difference I found is that the JRX-S is just so smooth. It never really upsets the chassis by pitching it in one way or the other. It also carries a ton of corner speed. I think it corners faster than anything else I've run. The last thing is that it transitions quickly and smoothly with out taking much effort. I am always fastest through the S turns and the quick chicanes because the car doesn't take time to react. The only way I could get other cars to act this way was to stiffen the suspension to react quicker but they became twitchier while the JRXS just stays smooth. It's effortless. As for faster lap times I can run about the same times with either car, but I've only run my JRXS 3 race weeks while I had months on my RDX to perfect setup. I will also say that I may turn the same 10.5 second lap time with both cars but I only run 3 of them in a 5 minute heat while I ran 19 of them with my Losi. So I would say I am much more consistant with the JRXS right out of the gate.

Ditto on the consistancy thing! I can run more consistant lap times per run than with my G+ and I don't have to " Drive "the car hard to do it like I did with my G+. I have found that when I really push my JRXS I run slower lap times than when I back off it just a click and let the car do the work. On many of the first races with my JRXS I was running 2 to 3 tenths quicker by letting the car corner and drive like it wanted. I cannot compare it to the RDX but compared to my G+ it transitions WAY quicker and carries a TON more corner speed without me gritting my teeth or trying drive it like I stole it!
