Default Twin Fan Motor Cooler

My Twin fans and it only cost me 25bucks. Fans move forward and aft to compensate for changes in motor position. It has ample motor to fan clearance so fan on top wont slow down due to magnetic force by motor can magnets





Fans are by Much More Racing, adjustable top fan plate by FBJ

Hello everyone!
I've been reading this forum since day one now and have only just decided to join.
It's definately the best place to come for information on the JRXS and previously the XXXS.
Thanks everyone!

FBJ - whats that clip type thing that sits next to your servo?

Welcome Chris.

I was wondering the exact same thing about that clip.

Have you tried the high front roll center plus .100" with the low roll center?

Try a high front diff. Are you using a 41T front pulley. If so take it out. This will make the car have more rear traction and less front traction. What pistons are you using? I would be running the #60 in the front and #57 in the back without BK Brackets.

High front roll center, low REAR roll center...Right?

Hmmm...I guess I can do it here.

First of all AF Models will be hosting the 2006 IFMAR Onroad Worlds and the track looks good. They put on a great offroad worlds.

Italy 2005 Experience,

I am sick of pasta and McDonalds. The hotel rooms were a bit on the larger side for a european hotel. It costs us 84 Euro to fill up a mini van which converts to about $102 US dollars. Drinking beer in the pits is not a big deal at all. It has been done at all 3 European races that I have been to this year. Some racers in the US would love this. Not too many Italians speak English and no Americans speak Italian. Charlie Suankga may be banned from renting cars worldwide. The weather was very nice. The last day there was a bit humid.

Track and Racing-The club let the track go and it was blown out of for 4wd which was awesome. It was very challenging to keep you car on the track for 5 minutes without flying off the track. In 2wd on the practice day the track was just as blown out. It rained that night and helped the track a lot. The club used blue ozite carpet on all the jumps which was very cool. TQ in both classes did not win which shows how close the competition was. Cavalieri drove a brillaint A1 and A2 to take home the win in 4wd. He was very impressive as usual. In 2wd it was a race between Cavalieri and Cragg. Cragg was faster and had a hard time following Ryan. However when Cragg would make a mistake he would catch up within a 1/2 a lap. Neil Cragg drove awesome. His braking points were amazing.

Matt Francis did announce his retirement from RC Racing however he will be finishing out the year by racing Vegas, ROAR Nats, and Cleveland. He will be missed!!

Pop's Losi also announced his retirement from Team Losi over the week. He had all the racers sign the USA team sign. He will be retiring from TL at the end of the year however he may be coming to more races now.

John Grant, IFMAR President, also announced his retirement from IFMAR.

The racing was very organized which is always expected in Europe. It is funny when racers would complain about the race director yelling at them but then the same racers in states complain when the racing in the US is unorganized.

The spec tire for next years worlds that is proposed is the Ride 36. They are not sure on insert and wheel yet. Hara commented that these tires are really good and comparable to Sorex. Also a handout additive may be used.

LRP had a new ESC called the Q3 which has a smoother throttle mode for the slick Italy track. It was used by all top LRP drivers.

Masami had 2 or 3 mechanics working on his cars. WOW!

I miss offroad racing!

There were a total of 11 different 4wd cars used in racing. Only 3 in 2wd.

Gratzi!
