Like Howard said..the car was used by about 6 Losi drivers last weekend at the Region 12 race and I must say it was beyond dialed! I have yet to see a car so well designed!!!!!

It is well worth the $$$$$$

I may just have to pick one up ??????

Look at the podium in Modified Sedan from the race

Face it gentlemen, R/C is an expensive hobby. And if you want to race, and be competitive, it is even more expensive. PERIOD.

Fact is, the "kit" (chassis, suspension components, transmission, etc), despite the classification, is quite often the LEAST expensive element of a larger equation. Once you total up your electronics, and EXPENDABLES motors, batteries, and tires, you will agree...

Compare the price of the JRXS to COMPARABLE kits on the market- XRay, Tamiya, Corally-and it is a fair price.

Lightweight design and construction allows ballast placement options

Completely adjustable roll centers, toe-in, anti-squat, castor, and camber

Dual position shock towers for indoor/outdoor racing

Center spool and one-way options

Machined pure Carbon Fiber/Graphite chassis and upper braces

WOW there is like no room for electronics is there? That big huge large hole under the motor looks scarry also. Looks like a good place for an aftermarket chassis to me.

I would say this could be a contributing factor for Losi staying with graphite plate and not molded, having external companies producing upgrade parts also generate interest in the kit itself.

People Like BMI, Demon etc must be giggling like little school girls in anticipation of its release.
