The RDX feels more locked down-but not saying its bad. JRXS is much quicker to react to inputs-or so it feels. Again-laptime are the same. The RDX always displays a small amount of body roll, but the JRXS runs -or at least it looks like it runs flat as a board. Its hard to go from one to the other-not that one normally would do that except on practice night.

Nice. Sounds like you have them both dialed in pretty good. Are you just running the RDX and Losi at this time or do you alos have some other ones to run on the rug to compare to.

what are you implying??? HMmmmm??? LOL

j/k-the only other sedan in my stable these days is a rubber tire TCS Tamiya TA05.

I guess I am super lucky to have two really dialed cars. I wish I was a better driver to get ever last bit out of them, but oh well.....

I know you like to try out a few cars from time to time, as I like to do that as well so don't feel too bad.

I thought you might still have an Xray in the stable somewhere. Nice to hear how the two cars feel so differant and still run the same. I ran a Corally on asphalt for a few weeks towards the end of asphalt season at an indoor track. I'm interested to see how the JRXS compares to the RDX I use to have. I didn't get a car yet but I always like the batteries down the center of the car setup and think the car is very balanced overall.

a setup btw whats the # for the prs adaptor?. you should invest in yp\our standard spre parts, plus get all sorts of tuning options (springs, diffrent pivot blocks, etc). btw dont put too much threadlock on the ballstuds on the shock towers, i stripped the screws out when i went to take them out beacuse i put too much thread lock on them
you did make a good choice this car excells on carpet

I had a few issues with the rear 0deg. hubs and the front 4deg. HubCarriers. Just a small setback for such a wonderfull chassis.

Just go and buy some XXXS Rr hubs and Fr carriers and all will be fine..

And don't get discouraged if you try the Numan or Hodge setups and find they aren't to your liking.. Remember, I'ts their set-up, the way they like it..

There are a lot of different adjustments available for this platform, and with a lil time can be dialed in to suit everyones needs..

Default Piston speed

I've been thinking a lot about shock piston speed with the car lately. A buddy of mine who runs the car came up with an idea after some discussions about what the car is doing on the track, on carpet. I told him I had been trying pistons modified for 2 holes instead of 3, to put more dampening/pack into the shocks, as I felt the car wanted to move around too much, especially on the front end. This is more of a feel thing than what you see on the track, as the car does run pretty flat. I went to a #57 2 hole piston, and I liked it. The car also seemed to gain some steering, and have a flatter "feel".

So he suggests that the car may need to have the shocks pack up harder, vs. more static dampening. Like running hole sizes from #60 - #65, with a lighter oil. His theory is that the car, because of the short arms, has less piston movement, or displacement. The piston doesn't move real fast and doesn't pack up too well. Which would be a reason why a lot of setups have the shocks laid in, and why the BK brackets work so well. The current pistons are carryovers from the XXXS, which is understandable.

This also makes sense on the rear of the car too, as my car never feels good unless the shock is in the 3rd hole in from the outside (laid in at a nice angle). A lot of times it wants to square off the corner in that second hole. However, at the Vegas race, my car didn't want to really rotate. A quick phone call to Seaball's dial-a-setup hotline revealed that going to a lighter oil or piston in the rear would get the car rotating. It did. The point of that story is that because of the limited piston movement in the outer holes, they aren't really feasible locations. But you need to be much lighter than it would appear if you run those inner hole locations. Maybe a heavier piston in the rear would make those outer holes work better?? I don't know but hopefully I'll have some smaller hole pistons to work with soon.

Has anyone else had a similar experience with the car? Or at least some thoughts on this idea? Does anyone know if the BK brackets on the front of a foam tire car have a similar effect?

Thanks for reading my ridiculously long post...........
