Hey Bill

Thanks for the tip. I did dremel material and two of my 3 packs sit fine but the third is still a hair off. Wow, that is a lot of material I had to dremel. I am gonna try a bit more and stop there.

Yes RTM! I did see the note in Step A01 and did do what they said but now I know how impt that step was. You never want to take too much material away. You can not add back

Hi Bill

I dremeled the rear cell and that fits but I noticed that the frontmost two cells are causing the cell holder to buldge. I am not even using the foam pads yet. I think I need to resolder the packs. I could be off by a mm and it will not lay right

Well thanks for the heads up, but i have to say that we can probably expect to run our current cars for a while before we get a chance to grab one of those. I'm so happy with mine now, not sure if i would really want to change.

See.. when I first saw the pic of the offroad car, I said to my self... SELF.. now that looks like a better design, why dont they make the onroad car out of that.

If theyre listening... why not make the whole top deck as low as the rear one? Put the steering linkage on top of the front top plate, using the rear bulkheads.. and then make the servo SLAMMED.. as in have the chassis cut out and put the servo case FLUSH with the bottom of the chassis... thats a pretty heavy piece of property, and being 2.5mm lower wouldnt hurt NUTIN. It could bolt to the top plate.. yea, the end user may have to modify the servo case... ahwell.. they did on the XX as well.

I have tinkered with my car a little.. and if i didnt work 60-70 hrs a week i would have made it this way myself..

that is the best part of this car.. there are SO many possibilities.. they have basically given everyone all of the parts that the avg joe cant make.. that will bolt to a chassis.. that pretty much anyone can make..

Malc,

At the ROAR Region 12 Championships this weekend, there were 3 other guys next to me with your double fans on their JRX-S's. I believe all of us made it to the AAA-mains in our respective classes. Great fun!

Bill

Hi all

What is the benefit of running the 2 degree offset hubs with the 0 degree pivot block for running carpet? I have not been able to pick up the 2d offset hubs so I was going to run the 2 degree pivot block and the standard hub mounted in the standard position.

Thanks

Todd explained the difference some time ago; but, the 2 degree blocks are not going to be produced by Losi anyway.

By running no inboard toe in and using only outboard toe in this will let the car set over the rear end more when going through the turn and also free the car up in the center of the turn.

Todd that is an awesome quote. I knew Senna was a great driver but that just shows how you have to think in order to succeed.

Hi Todd and Bill

I looked up the p/n for the Losi rear 2 degree hubs and found this A9854. Are you saying these will no longer be made?

Is there a List of XXX-S parts which are interchangeable with JrXs parts such as the rear hubs?

Thanks

There are a few things interchangeable, rear hubs, belt pulleys, front spindle carriers. I think is what he meant by not being made is the XXXS is at the end of it's lifespan. I have heard at my LHS parts are hard to get for that now since they are not producing much for it anymore. I saw some really long ETA's on few parts that we tried to order.
