having seen the car in person.. i can describe-

the swaybars are TINY! They connect to the balls we all thought were for the blade style system and the links run strait up to the bar which is mounted on the shock tower where the tower mounts to the bulkhead. They are super narrow, and have very short "arms".

they look VERY effective due to the short arms.. i think there will be very little flex in the bar, so i bet we will see thinner bars...

Keith's description is dead on. Hardly any slop at all and very effective.

thanks for posting that, they are good pics

has anybody thought of how annoying it is going to be to solder in the batt packs, with the belt and the top deck like they are, and storing them too, you have to run the bars al the way straight, whic means that you can't fill a GM batt box, they will touch each other (the packs)
that is enough of a reason for me not to get a JRXS, I will keep running the XXX-S and then switch to XRAY or Tamiya nless Losi finds a way to fix the problem

Hey guys,

Since this battery access issue keeps coming up, I just wanted to give my 2 cents. If you haven't seen this car up close and in person, then I would recommend waiting to write it off your list because you're worried about access to the battery. I saw the car at the Chicago show a few weeks ago and was surprised at how much room there is around the battery. Yes, it is tighter than the average TC, but it is not as cramped as the all the pictures I have seen led me to believe. People are worried about connectors, and I believe they will be useable. You may have to get a little creative, but I do not believe it will be that bad. I use Sermos/Duratrax PowerPoles and am not worried at all about adapting to the new car. Just something to consider. Wait to see the car in person before writing it off because of space concerns.

Anyway, Go Losi! It looks like Francis and Spashett have a shot at making the A at Worlds.

I am speaking only for myself and the information I am using to base my opinion of you is what you wrote in your post.

To make a decision to not buy the new Losi based on how difficult it might be to solder in your packs and also the inability for you to store all your batteries in your trusty plastic lunch pail, I have the right and the freedom to also post my opinion.

Here it is:

You are an idiot.

And you will not be missed.

Can we keep this professional?

there is no need to insult people...

If you dont like the car.. that is fine.. why not just move on to the TC4 thread..rather than posting..?

If you dont like what someone posted.. why not be the bigger man and ignore it?

Think about this... is it really worth fighting on the internet about a toy car?
