That will only raise your center of graivty. I think you would be fine mounting it on the side of the chassis as per other JRXS owners. Even if it does hang over atleast your car will be balanced right to left.

Thanks I never thought about that. I was just worried about it getting hit and getting cracked.

Hey Todge
When wil the alum. pivot blocks be out? 2deg. rear hubs?
I'm running carpet this winter and my track is doing both foams and spec rubber during the same week. I plan on doing both. Any tips on how much I should change between setups. Right now the car is setup for foams to run in stock. How much should i change when putting on rubbers?
Thanx

Gates, Todd is right(as you might expect), a little overhang will be fine, the speedo will be safe since it is tucked in between the tires and the center of gravity is more important for handling.....If you have to raise anything, the receiver is the lightest component, but it all should fit.....Jim

I would start off with a 30 if your track doesn't have a very long staright-a-way. I run a 29-120 set-up on my car. I have the spur gear adaptor and it is sweeeeeettttttt! I run a binary also, and thats what it seems to like.
What does the spur gear adaptor do? Also there is a problem with my spur gear sort of. It wobbles side to side b/c it is not true. Does the spur gear adaptor help that?

The PRS spur adapter allows you to run standard type spur gears. It also allows you to use many different sizes or even change to 48 pitch if you want. If your spur is a little wobbley then it should still be fine. If its very wobbley or warpped then replace it. Hope this helps.

The standard 64p, 128 tooth spur that comes with the car is very, very good. If you don't wish to run 64p, then the spur adapter is your solution.

Hello, does anybody know where I might be able to buy BK bones for the JRXS, or just aftermarket and spare parts for the car. Please help me.

Team Losi sells the bearings that are put on the cvd and lcd's. The part number is LOSA6932. The bearings are easily pressed on the CVD's with a small vice. The lcd's need the pin ground down a bit so the bearing fits. I use a round stone wheel to take the diameter down and then press the bearing on.

We are working on finishing the aluminum blocks. They should be out in 3-4weeks by the time they are packaged and into Horizon's inventory. The hubs...I am not sure. I will check.

As for a setup change, you are looking at quite a bit. With rubber tires, I used the BK Mounts where on foam tires I use stanard arm/shock position. There is a lot to change. You really need to commit to one class or get an additional car for the rubber spec class.

The only 3 aftermaket items that I know of or recomend are the P-Dub bumper, the PRS spur gear adapter( stock spur gear is fine but if you want different spurs then you may want this), and the BK shock brackets. Other than these items the kit has everything you need. For replacement parts try KT Hobbies or Horizon Hobby. Hope this helps.

Default Diff Assembly Tip-LOSA3018 Thrust Assembly

Using the LOSA3018 Thrust Assembly-His a key note on building your diffs on your JRXS. On the thrust assembly you will want to measure the outer diameter of the thrust assembly. You will notice that one of the thrust washers is larger in diameter. You will want to place this washer onto the diff screw first. Then put the caged ball assembly on the diff screw then slightly more lube around the caged bearing. Apply the next thrust washer (smaller diameter) next. Now you will want to use your 5 concaved washers in the opposite direction on the diff screw. You will want them in this orientation
[--)))))--

instead of

[--(((((--
Assemble the diff accordingly and you will notice a smoother diff.

Thanks,
