Paul C setup is a good start for carpet but it can be inproved on. 25# springs on the rear,on the front blocks run two shims under to give you 100, no o-rings in rear bladders,rear shocks in one more hole. that is a couple of things that make it on rails.

What does removing the o-rings do? I haven't experimented with that yet.

On a side note, does anyone have problems with the thin o-rings that seals the caps bulging out? I'll replace them this weekend, just wondering if anyone else had this happen.

I'm going to run 19t w/rubber tires on a medium sized carpet track. The Losi manual suggests a 37-40?! Isn't this a lil' big on the pinion? Anybody out there try this? Don't want to burn up a new motor. Just seems odd to me to start that big in pinion.

I ran it on asphalt indoors and it was sweet. Ask Josh Numan how it is for outdoor asphalt Start with the Numan setup and go from there. Make sure you follow the setup completely.

i ran my JRXS for the first time since i got it on Monday night...can't believe how easy it is to drive with the stup i got on it

i haven't driven a r/c car in a year and a half so i was quite rusty at it....i used year and a half old batteries that have never been charged or discharged since that long ago and a really old monster motor i had sitting in my pitbox for years(probably 15+ runs on brushes also)

the faster guys in stock rubber at my track are running about 11.4 seconds per lap on a good lap and 19 turn foam is at about 10 seconds (super fast guy((Brian Lutz)) is at high 9's )

i put in the trusty Orion Lap Counter and was running 11.5-11.7 a lap with this old stuff and a new car

i wonder how much i would gain with new batteries and motor plus i havent even started messing with the setup yet

i figure new batteries and fresh motor should get me at least half a second a lap.. i should be running in the mid 10's when im all set to go

another happy customer

37-40 will range you from 6.5ish to 5.8ish (guessing off the top of my head) gear ratios... Which is the zone where the REEDY 19t likes to run.. Not sure how the Trinity 19t motors will do in that zone..

I know some of you frequent 'other' forums, etc, but in case you don't, I have the following stickers available for the JRXS owners out there...

Hi CCFM here
Im am sitting here preping my chassis and am a little confused as on the losi web site it says to glue the edge of the chassis, but when speaking with Dave Spashet the other day, he said not to do this as when the chassis 'Twists' a cracking sound can be heard which is apparently the glue cracking. I dont want to glue the edge if this is going to happen and having to remove the glue in the future, but bare in mind Dave Spashet does run a MSX

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

I have run my jrxs on carpet with very good results (raced with the foam class for fun) and ran a 35/128 on a 110' striaght away. I also have a setup if you need.. it feels good for me anyways. That is for c2 bases.
