It is something we are testing. We feel it does offer some benefits on some tracks but not all. I actually built a front engine car for the Snowbirds

So from a Team Losi stand-point, they may stick with the original design or is it more likely that they will eventually release the rear motor version after more development....

All I can say is that we are still testing. If we do come out with the new rear engine car it will be in two kits. A conversion kit for all front engine cars and a complete kit.

Which ball cups do you use?

We sell the sway bar ends that come in 4 pack. This is what I use. LOSA4253. Since they are open ended you can run a longer screw through the shock tower and the female ball stud and use a washer and a mini nut to help them from popping off the inside camber positions.

Youd probably be better off with the 60's in the front.. and the 57's in the rear.

Also, what camber are you running? 1F 2R seems to be a smart place to start. I find when I increase the front or decrease the rear the car becomes a handfull.

i ran the Losi JRXS in stock rubber today at the large race in this area and it was the fastest rubber car on the track...i didnt win the A main but a couple more laps and i would have had the chance coming from 3/4 of a lap down froman unfortunate pileup in the sweeper

I'm with you on the rubber stuff. I absolutely love my JRXS!! I have only had my car on the carpet 2 this season and I just have not had the track time I need to really get used to A--Carpet and B--the right set-up. I'm only 1 to 2 tenths off of where I need to be but mostly I need my car to be more consistant. I will get it there just need some more time. Last weekend with the new arms and lowering my spring rates the car was WAY better and consistant. All I need is time! LOL

Yes, Buds Racing Products has one! I have seen them for sale on Ebay. None are listed at this moment though.

www.brpracing.com

The website is down tonight so you may want to try it tomorrow. Good Luck
