Novak race is one of the BEST races in the US. Anything Scotty is involved with is top notch. He outdid himself for this novak race as well.

I'll post the setup I used here in a few days....It was pretty good for only running the car for 2 weeks before on low bite. Car carried pretty good corner speed but was a little edgy at times....Still got to work that out but I think most of it was due to the traction. The traction there was crazy high!! I seen all kinds of stuff stuck to tires when taking cars off the track (Body clips, set screws, eclips, tire chunks, etc) it was gooooooie to say the least.

Thanks to the Losi Team.....they were great answering questions and looking over everything all week...Very easy to talk to and get help from. I even seen MF take a printer out of his bag and PRINT off a setup sheet for a local racer...Now thats tha shiznit!!

Default Brushless set-up

Hey all,

I had a mixed weekend at the Novak. When I ran 4 deg caster-car was a dream to drive. Just about anyone would have loved it-from a driveability standpoint. But when I ran 6 deg caster-car was a lot faster, but mine could be crazy looose too. I ended up with 6 deg caster, LRC and 0.032" shim for antidive.

My set-up I think is a Trackside-Jack only set-up, but here it is if anyone wants to try it. Its basically the way it is because my car had so much steering and rotation that it needed to be toned down, while still having a lot of steering. Sounds crazy-but I guess you had to be there. I was VERY happy with this set-up every run, though it was loose some runs (like a tweak) to the right one run, to the left another run and perfect other runs. I need to take car apart to find out why!!

Front
#60, 60 wt Losi oil, 60 spring.
Standard arm, in on tower.
6-deg caster.
0.08" shims on swing rack and on steering hubs for bump steer.
Camber link lowest hole on tower.
1-deg front hingepin block low
LRC rear hingepin block raised 0.032"
1mm uptravel
Parma Cyan 2.15" 1-deg camber.

Rear
#56, 50 wt oil, 17.5 lb spring. Cut shock bottom 2mm
BK arm, 4th in on tower.
Camber link bottom middle on tower, b on hub.
1-deg hingepin block low. Flat pins.
1-deg standard hubs (NOT offset).
1.5mm uptravel
Parma Magenta 2.15" 2-deg camber.
Parma Alfa mounted a little forward.
Turning circle 6'.
GTB #1 setting, no drag brake, 4300 motor. Rollout 1.15 to 1.21".

Damn Ray, you were running springs that stiff up front? You were running the BK arms, right?

Gary,

Nah-it was with standard arms. On my stock/foam car I ran BK arms, #57 pistons, 50 wt oil and 30lb springs.

reference to ray's coments about last weekends race, i know what you are feeling out of the car. it seems that every set up i come up with for carpet foam,if the lap times are in the hunt, the car is very edgy. when i tone it down, the lap times drop off. i can't help but think it's because of the front to rear weight ratio. this mainly due to battery location. our local track is tight with good bite. the edgy handling makes it easier to make mistakes, like hitting things that isn't out of the ordinary for me at times anyway. i have a set up i will post for someone to try and feed back their oppinion of it.
where's my conversion kit?

For the few races that I ran my JRXS I had this very same feeling. My car was qquick but always felt on the edge and I don't like that feeling and I can't drive it smooth when my cars feel like that. The car does seem to really transition fast from left to right and I like how the car always seems to run flat around the corners. Might have to get another one and give it a longer try sometime.

Ok guys. I'm thinking of running stock foam this weekend for a big race. Normally my car is set up for 19t/rubbers with updated arms. What setup should I use? I kinda have an idea where to start (Paul C. stock setup), but what springs should I use? Should I take the spring that Losi recommends with the arms and go up one rating?

You mean this one?
http://www.rc50.com/modules.php?name...451&fullsize=1

No this is the first rear motor proto, the one with servo in centerline, motor in very rear end.

The one I found (http://www.rc50.com/modules.php?name...422&fullsize=1) is servo on right side, battery & motor moved forward, with empty space behind the motor (I guess it move battery and motor about 15~20mm forward).

Now I just wonder which one Losi gonna release as JRX-S2? (or JRX-SR?)

edit: unless.. you mean the one under.. that's the mid-rear motor JRX-S.
I guess it would be easier to say original as mid-forward motor, 1st rear proto as rear motor, and 2nd rear proto as mid-rear motor.....
