Yes.
Thought maybe it had something to do with the new chassis!
Have any tried Losi setup #3 yet?

The back end was real lose, so I put some 1 degrees rear hub carriers on tuned over the rear wishbone retainer, and front rear wishbone retainers, so as to lower the centre of gravity at the rear and reduced the rear droop from 4 to 3mm and was bang on the money. Then I decided to re-build it so as to get rid of the tweak (not that I was in a hurry when I first built it as im not like that with my builds) I stripped it right back and re-built it checking on a flat plate as I mounted each individual part, but low and behold, come to checking the car on the tweak station, it had the same bloody tweak, I could not believe it. So i took it with me Friday to our club night and showed one of the guys that has been racing for arns, and sussed it in 2 minutes, the rear bulk head set are of different heights by 1.5mm and same with the fronts GGRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!! Anyone else come across this? im gutted now i have to mess about shimming the bulk heads to equal hieghts

Default Alu battery tray w/ the new arms?

I've been waiting for the big battery tray for 2 months now and it keeps getting pushed out. On the Horizon Hobbies website, first it was late October, then early November, now late November.

I have this terrible feeling that the big battery tray is joining the new suspension arms in unobtanium land.

I like my JRXS, but I would really like to be able to get some of these key parts in a timely fashion. Is this type of parts delay unusual for Losi, or is this standard operating procedure?

I've run the Belts cut for a long time no issues, the great thing is ever other belt cuts perfectly. Still on original belts

JRXS.com is working fine.
.net is gone and may not be back, sorry for the inconvience

'How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?' Like getting parts from Losi... 'The world may never know.'

-battery tray
-2* rear hubs
-new arms
-complete shock kits

Oh well... Just jokes... don't hurt me!

I do, my front brackets are a little shorter than most at 0.25" centre to centre.
This allows me to use 26mm fronts and I run the brackets on the inside hole at the rear so I can fit 30mm rears.

The new arms should be out soon if they are already not out now. You can use foams with them.

If you want to use the aluminum bk brackets you will need to grind the arm so the bracket is recessed into the arm. Then the foams will work. I ground my arm the same thickness as the bracket. This is for 28mm foams in the front in the rear 28mm should work standard.
