Default Your funny Jamee.

When did I say I was fast? How long have you been racing? I have only raced a few times over the past 8 months. Don't put words in my mouth buddy! I voiced my opinion and I made that clear. I get to listen to yours all the time and your always jumping all over people.

I don't know but seeing that Losi is one of the most successful rc company of all time I think they know what they are doing.
As for the car untill there is a FK05 faster than the JRXS at our track than we can talk about what car is better.

Its all about the driver. Bottom line. I commend losi for thinking outside the box and not making another cookie cutter car.

Good job Todd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and everyone else at losi!!

This is what i have been runing lately, the car is very very smooth and turns crazy fast laps. This is based on Paul L. setup from the losi site, but with a few changes.

I looked on Losi's website and Paul L. setup is not on there. I was wondering where you are talking about. Where is Paul L's setup?

Any actual pics or links to pics of this mod???

Engineering 101 is not in the house.
Knight - This car will do things the other cars cannot do. It doesn't have roll time that creates delayed or slowed reactions when cornering. On the same track, I run less ride height, harder tires and a much less agressive setup than my Xray counterparts.

I run two year old 3300s and old motors that have been in my box since I can remember. The JRXS more than holds it's own.

Keep in mind, Dallas is Xray country. These guys know how to set up their cars.

Being an engineer myself, I can tell you this car just makes sense! So much so that it passes them on the outside as well as on the inside. The best is being dead heat down the straight and diving under them in the first rounder. I'm on the trigger before their car even gets stable. The racers that have put their radio down and drove my car said it is almost unfair how easy it is to drive.

We'll see. I think this car has quite the future. One of our racers got away from his old XXXS and went with the 05 Xray. He regrets it almost every week we race. The gap keeps geting larger and larger as we figure out our cars.

Anyways. I'm off the box now.
Tex
The HALO Dude!

Take the diff balls out (leave the diff rings in though) put one sandpaper disk on each side of the pulley with the 'sand' facing the pulley and re-assemble the diff. Adjust the diff bolt so you can just, with a reasonable amount of effort, make the diff slip, it doesn't need to be done up super tight, this will help protect your driveline if you hit anything.
Dremel sanding discs work great, the o/d is perfect, and a little trim of the centre hole ..... done.
