Takes about 20 mins the hole thing, also remember that the Ben Rayments set-up uses the rear to front shock tower mod too

Default What's all this inside joke stuff about a dremel?

Do you have to dremel on the JRX-S of yours POOKTY? You know what I say to that....

I dont know why so many people make fun of dremeling this car... i have had to dremel every car I have owned at one time or another.

TC3= center brace- to move cells closer to center
FK= rear arms, to accomodate foams- chassis slots
XXXS= had to make the shock bodies shorter in the V1 kits..
RDX=.. chassis slots, and rear shock tower added support for camber links

LOL
The wholel Dremel thing is from all of those BK/PK brackets I made. Every set I made was by hand and with my Dremel. When it started I never thought I would end up making as many sets as I did. So, the Dremel has many hours of bracket time on her now. Thats how it started.

Default I agree Keith, but that's why I like the T2 so much.

It's the first car ever that I didn't have to dremel or hand fit something. It's great! It so easy to work on and tune. Just my two cents though. Now on the other hand, think how easy a cf version of the XXX-S would be to work on and tune..he..he..he. It had the lightest and most simple drivetrain of any TC made. Sorry...just had to say it.

OK now we've had the new arms, JR link, rear shock tower mod, a number of front shock tower mods etc, what's everyone's current Carpert with Foams setup?

I'm back from Uni for a month or so and probably going to be going some racing, carpet tracks with foams (normally no additives) but I'd say medium-traction.

Many thanks

Oli

Has anyone tried the 48 pitch gearz they offer for the jrx-s. I onlyask because i mainly race off road and was hoping to only carry one style of pinions. if so any recommended sizes for stock , 19t and a 10x2 mod. I assume its similar iin gearing to my xxx-4 but a little different due to tire size. i race on asphalt with stock tires right now. Yokomo yellow precision discs on the way. I read a lot of postings and have seen nothing on switching to the 48 pitch gears. Is it a bad idea? I will run the 64 if that is what is most effeicient and easiest to tune. any help would be greatly appreciated for a dirt convert. thanks in advance

Im pretty content with my setup.. I havnt seen the need to get away from it aside from going to a 25LB spring.. and the JR link. You can view my setup on PG 351.



RCknight.. there is a carbon fiber version of the XXXS.. its called a 415 or T2. JOKE... but really, i think the JRXS is superior to the XXXS. For a long time I was on the fence and felt the same way... but now that I got to know this car, i am going much faster that i did with the XXXS.

does having all the weight down the center really make up for a more complictated design? With the new lipos, Losi will have to release a rear motor chassis. That means a three deck chassis. Why make something with 10 screws when you can do it with 2 concept. Sure the drivetrains free, but is the design complexity worth it? The car weight won't roll as much with everything down the center, but then it's very sensitive. The XXX-S suffered from a lack of feel in adjustments, but I'm told the the JRX-S is to the other extreme. It's too sensitive to wheel size and etc. Much harder to get it dialed. Just talkin here not bashing.
