Default The 5 things that have made Corally successful are...

1. Performace
2. Quality
3. Everthing in the box.
4. Marketing specific versions
5. Eye appeal

Now if a company would add a few more points, make a car with durability and quick easy setup changes, and make it the easiest car to wrench on and maintain. Mabe a car that could use vertical ball studs as well and the standard shock tower positions. Bigger wheel hubs that use bigger bearings like Xray. I also like the way you can adjust Xrays and Corally's anti drive, kickup and etc. I like Xray's no need for a belt tensioner, front hubs, because it's easy to make ackerman changes. One thing, I do like the look of the Assasins towers better. They look faster. A car with all these features would dominate sales for the long run. But an engineer would have to swallow their pride. Just my opinion.

To fix my chasis tweak i found a much better way then shims under the bulk heads.....i used a 3/32 drill bit and slightly enlarged the locating pin holes on the upperdecks. Also, the front upper plate needs to be shaven down slightly where it rests against the center bulkheads (more so on the spur gear side). With this done, my chassis is now perfectly flat, and a 4.5mm ride height all around yeilds perfect on my tweakboard.

Hope that helps you, it took the 1mm tweak out of both my cars.

Enlarging the holes is not a better way to fix the tweak, because now you have created room for the pins and screws to move so that each time you hit the wall on that side of the chassis it will tweak.
The reason the car is tweaked out of the box is when the chassi and/or the top plates were drilled either the drill bit was dull or just bad which makes the bit walk a bit, sometimes as much as .01

I really don't get where you are coming from. All you have done on this forum is [email protected] and moan about how you don't like the JRX-S, how poorly it is designed, how you can't fit electronics in it, and generally telling the designers they don't know what they're doing.

Do you own a JRX-S?

I see you run a FK05, that's cool, do we come over to the x-ray forum and whinge about that car or the company???

All I know is the last race meet I went to all the local boys run x-rays, I was the only Losi there, guess who won..... It wasn't the Slovakian car......

Your opinion is fine, but maybe you should be a little more open to new ideas that really work, with no down sides I can see at the moment. ie: JRX-S

I have personally have not seen any tweaked cars out of the box. I can see this happening if you do not make sure the top plates are pushed down on the bulkheads correctly or the front plate being put on upside down.

Wink I have seen some

First I would like to say I'm a big fan of this car.
There have been issues with "tweak" in the 3 kits built here. Every one was where the top plate attaches the bulk head. It was from an undersized bit to drill the pin hole. I redrilled by hand and resealed the carbon fiber. After that it was perfect.
Catch it in chassis prep and no problems will come from this.
Electronics go in with more room than any other car on the market. Enough said.
Handling is the thing that sells. Yes Xray guys have gone to this car here in Dallas. I do own both myself.
I'll put my money on the JRXS!

Open Challenge. You come race my track. I'll come race yours.
We will post the findings here. Any takers?
TEX

Default Ok....

but I think from a business standpoint it's the wrong direction. I have a sense or a pulse on the market you might say.

You ever think about getting a job in marketing rc if you are so good at it? I think Losi has been pretty damn successsful without your input. Why don't you take your marketing crap to the Wall Street Journal forums. I here CNBC has a pretty good forum to talk marketing.

This thread is to talk about setup tips and help on the JRXS. Not your crap!!!!!!!!!!!

How about when an Xray breaks a front block all my buddies need to beat the axle out of the bearing to get it fixed because the of the way they fit into the bearings. If your going to say all these problems don't forget the Xray. No way could you not have seen this problem because we have Xray Team drivers at our track and they have this problem and so do the other 15 plus guys running them. Not picking but if you need to point fingers at problems then ALL CARS have them!!!!!

Can someone remind me what raising the front diff will do to the handling of the car. Is it a drastic change? Does it make the front end want to lean more? Just curious, because I have been running a low diff since I got the car. But now I have the front roll center high + 1 thick shim, and with a low diff, the suspension arm rubs the out drive at full suspension compression. I was going to try to raise the roll center further to try and make the car corner flatter, but it seems I'm going to have to raise the diff to do this. Will the diff height cancel out the roll center change? Thoughts? Thanks for the help!

I was very surprised our big local race this fall was won by a XXX-S and I thought some people were having better luck on asphalt with the XXX-S.
At the Fort Collins, Colorado HobbyTown, I am amazed at the number of XXX-S cars that are still very competitive. There are a couple of guys who are also very fast with the JRXS also.

Well I don't say. If you have nothing positive or helpful to say, go post somewhere else. I have never minded a little critisism, that's what makes all of us strive to be better, but please let us fellow JRXS owners talk about something other than your "sense of the market". I mean no offense, but your starting to offend me along with others. So please play nicely or go home (what ever forum that might be).
