I've never had a problem with it, my motors all go right in... Can't really gear smaller than 26/128 though due to the pulley by the endbell.

Well im not Randy but i do use Checkpoints in my jrxs also. I found it to be really tight from the brush shunt to the pully a few times, i just rotated the motor and used the other set of holes, then it was fine. (Put the solder tabs more at a 45 degrees then straight up)

Maybe you didn't put enough anti-squat in the "H" arms

That what im Geared at the moment, but hopefully i wont have to gear Lower, its just the Brush Tubes come close so i have to move the brush shunt to make clearance, behind the pulley. but im runnig a 7x1, if i had an 8x1 then i could gear a bigger pinion, but at the moment its 7x1..
Thanks

See you at Socal..

Is the JRXS that much superior to the XXX-s G+? I have been eyeing a few used XXX-S G+'s to get into electric on-road and am wondering if they would even be worth my while ie) parts, product support, etc.

If your new to Sedan racing then the G+ is a great way to start out. Many on for sale with lots of spares. But, if you even half way know how to tune a sedan then you will be much happier with the JRXS. Its just WAY more responsive to adjustments and small changes. On my G+ I had to make a huge change in set-up before I could really tell any difference. But again, don't be scared of the G+ because it can still be a VERY competitive car. Hope this helps.

Been reading the foam tire treads, and wondering if anyone that uses Parma tires, had problems with them rubbing. Whether they rub with the old or new arms and with the longer camber link. Thanx in advanced.

The 28mm's rub a little on my PK brackets but when I switched to the new arms they did not. On the camber mod, when I was building them I took the time to slightly sand the front and rear protion of the plastic cut down arm on the top side to make sure I had clearance when the wheels turn. Hope this helps.

I have been closely studying the rare Losi JRXsious here in England. So far I have spotted 3 (including mine). Why are they so rare? Surely no-one likes Yokomo?

I've got one and cant seem to get it to work but I dont think Helger who import it really fully support it I don't know any of their team drivers who run it. So this means it's hard to find a setup.
