Thumbs up JRXS car handeling

Wolfman posted
Hi All,

Just like some opinions as to how good the JRXS is. At the moment i'm racing a XXX-S it's modified a bit and can hold it's own. BUT almost everybody else at my track is running an XRAY FK05, i would like to race somethink different. How does the JRXS handle tight technical tracks. The track i race at is Asphalt, smooth and has high grip. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Cheers
Mick


My thoughts. This car is one of the easiest cars to drive and work on that I have ever seen. Build it to the instructions and go from there. The layout of components is second to none and balances the car very well. I put it on balance points the first day and it was right on. Wiring was easy and very servicable. I did go to Corally type connectors and I'm so impressed with how they work that I might change all of my cars to them. Super easy and no soldering.

On handeling. This car is raced on a medium track with low traction. There are alot of Xray guys out here since RC America is down the street. I can tell you straight that on this track, the Losi will do things the 05' will not. I can dive deeper, hold more speed and pass where few others dare to go. It is a ball to walls car.
In checking my thoughts. We have an old school racer (World 1/8 nitro competitor kind of guy) that I'm friends with. He drove the 05' and liked it. He drove the Losi and immediately bought one. He drove it on the track, in a race with the first battery pack he ever ran in the car. His warm up was the 100 ft he drove to the starting grid. He took second behidn a guy that had been racing there for 2 years regularly. This guy hadn't even seen the track and he was pushing the regular consistantly.
In the hands of the guy that drives my modified 05', he was sold. He ask consistantly to drive this car.
In stock, I run one lap behind the fastest two modified guys. I'm almost a lap faster than the field if I get and stay away from traffic. THe car gets questioned quite a bit when it comes to legality. I threw an ounce of lead on there and all is good.
The JRXS is worth the buy!

I would have to say that if you tuning skills are not that good and you would be the only guy running a Losi, go with what everyone else is running. It makes racing more enjoyable when you can get help from fellow racers. I was one of two guys running a BD on carpet last year and the other guys setup just didn't work for me, so I found myself chasing the car all year. So I switched to a Losi (1 of 3) and now me and my buddy can share info since we like similar setups. A little food for thought. Don't get me wrong, the car feels great, and with a little more track time it will be dialed. I can't wait to rip into those over priced Xrays.

Hi! I have had my JRX-S for a couple of months now and think it's a great car. I am still getting used to the dramatic change from my TC3. I am running the stock setup, but the rear seems very loose, as it breaks free and slides around during turns. There are so many tuning options, and I do not know where to start. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Airbear--Put the BK/PK brackets on it and put the Josh Numan set-up on the car. Don't put part of it or a close to it set-up on just do the Numan bolt for bolt and go from there. Hope this helps.

hi all,
i'm in need of some set up advice for my jrxs on carpet,
i'm running with CS-22 preglued's on carpet,
last night i tried the car out for the first time,
coming out of corners the rear of the car stepped out alot,
i've lowered the rear roll centre, lowered the diffs, changed droop, both front and rear springs, and none of this really seemed to help it.
the carpet is brand new, and has a very large amount of grip.
running the car pretty much kit at the moment, with locked centre layshaft and 2 diffs,

any help would be appreciated

cheers
luke

I dont use an M11, or M8 for that matter and I have not run a monster motor in my JRX-S yet.

But, for Luke, it sounds like your running a spool up front on carpet? But since you posted two diffs in your set up there are other things to try. You can run a slightly looser front diff then rear by setting the front diff about 1/8 turn looser then normal and the rear 1/8th turn tighter. It also sounds like you may need to run more castor up front, so if your at 4 degrees, try 6, if your at 2, try 4 degrees, etc. You can also try a longer rear camber link and less negative front camber as well as a little toe out up front(-.5 to -1. degree).

Even though I have yet to run on carpet(I live in Florida) the JRX-S should respond the same or better then my XXX-S did to these changes......, Jim

Pookyt, your brackets are cool, but the new arms are going to be better. I checked them out on Todds car and they will be nice when finally released.
