Yeah--Our big 2 day "Beat the Heat" race was this past weekend and out of 2 days of racing I managed to run 2....Yes I Said TWO!!!! battery packs! LMAO The only run I made in 19 turn and in Mod( with ZERO track practice) the car was ballistic and I put it in both mains! Trust me,these cars are fast and sometimes its faster than I am! HEHEHE. We had a great weekend and I was so happy that myself, LawtonLosi, Brians11, and DavidAlford in our JRXS's were so fast and easy to drive. My JRXS is simply smoother,quicker, and more consistant than any XXXSG+ I ever owned. Love it!! Now I need to find my glitch problem and buy new radio gear but HEY!......One thing at a time!

I don't think it would be a mistake. The JRXS is a very nice car. Everytime I run the car just gets faster and faster. And this is the first car I've had that was so free it would spin like a TC3. And thats with kit bearings.

Surely you have some buddies down there that will let you drive theirs or even borrow it for a race day. I rave about this car but really I can only compare it to the G+ plus I ran the past 2 years and a couple of runs I have made with some FK04's. I did run an EVO IVn at this years TCS race and it was a fast car but a very on the EDGE kind of fast. I hope you can get the chance to drive one.

There is no mistake to be made by getting this car along with Pooky's bars.. awesome car, just be sure to bring a set of spur gears to mount on the motor when going to the Beat The Heat race, LoL..

The car can be driven very aggresively, but not have it so on the edge feeling that if you miss the line by 2 inches you'll lose a second that lap. The car is very stable, braking, intial turn in, on power, off power, its just planted. The option of raising and lowering the diffs does make a difference in handling, I found that this weekend as well. The car is very consistent from run to run, I wasnt chasing the car every run out, it did what was expected each time out.. Very durable too, now that the weekend is over, i can say this, I only broke an LCD coupling since I've had the car, so for 2 club races, then this multi-day even from this weekend, not too bad if you ask me...

Because the track had like a 300ft straight and in 19t they needed like a 45/128 which wont fit on the car. So we needed smaller spurs to get the bigger pinions to work.

He is making a joke about the size of the track we just ran on this past weekend. It was our two day race and it runs nitro classes as well as electric. This year the track was huge with a 200 ft straight into a 60 ft sweeper. This track was very nice but it was BIG. In 19 turn we were running anywhere from 5.25 to 5.55 final drives and I was running a 7.00 final in mod with a 9 single. I ended up using a 116 spur so I could get a big enough pinion on it for 19 turn! LMAO

Thanks for the kind words bro! I just wish I hadn't been chasing radio troubles all weekend and could have hung out with you guys a lil more.

I threw some on my car this weekend on carpet and they helped the car.....now only if I didnít get bitten by the Losi rear hub bug I might have had a better weekend. Any idea how to tell if you have correct deg. rear hubs with out buying them and putting them on the car to see a rear wheel point the other direction....

Where is Todd's phone number when you need it...

I had the same trouble. So I guess I'll be getting a spectrum for my radio. I know it sure fixed Billy's problems.

Kevin....Other than using a set-up station and a board its durn hard to tell. After all the reports came out about the hubs I started checking my car closer and thought I had the same problem. LOL Turned out that my astute eyeball was looking at a bent wheel. Ya live and ya learn.
