Good job to the team guys at the ROAR nats. Wish I could have been there.

BTW--Malc, thanks for the hook-up on the CCF deck!!! Our track temp Sunday was 140 F and air temp was 98 F!!! I ran some practice packs with and without the fans on and the "on" motor temps were 12-17 degrees cooler! This KD 19 turn seems to get hot so I need all the help I can get.

Has anyone heard if and when Losi might release an updated Kit with all the new parts that the factory driver are using? I was not a big fan of the kit because it had some issues when it first came out, but now it looks a lot better. The rear engine setup looks great, at least the car does not look like a clone of every other car.

i've heard sometime around september. the new plastic for the suspension bits is supposedly much more impact resistant.

I have heard that, 1) the new car is not going to be an upgrade, but a new kit ONLY, because there are far too many new items in the new rear-motor car, and very few items overlap, and 2) the new car is supposedly going to be released in September. I hope it is sooner, but I doubt they will release three new cars on top of each other (8ight, JRXSR and XXXCR)

IIRC, that came from Todd Hodge through the JRXS.com forums, but I might be mistaken on the source.

While I think it's great that many of you are interested in this 'new car/rear motor' chassis, let me remind you that the CURRENT car is still competitive. The recent results at the Reedy Race, in Spec (Kyle Bergstrom 2nd place overall), and the ROAR Paved Nats, in Stock (Craig Xaiver, 2nd place overall), should indicate that the standard car IS very capable.

Good points—the car is still very worthy in many applications. Though, I think many (on these forums) get impatient when they see the new design doing so well in so many races. It doesn't help that many, if not all, of the "team" guys we see are running the new chassis design. While in the hands of the Losi drivers, it is considered testing and R&D, it infers to many that the old design is inferior and not as fast as the new layout.

I think when the carpet season gets rolling again, the impatience will increase. For now, I'll keep the mid motor car on asphalt.

Yeah, if someone has them, I'd like to see Kyle B's RROC setup and Craig X's Nats setup. Some more info to ponder as I work to get my car dialed in for asphalt.

ApexSpeed - When did you pick up a JRX-S? Last race at IRP I thought I heard Shane say you were running a XXX-S? Are you gonna be out at IRP this Sunday? If so, I'd be curious to hear your thoughts on setup. Don't get to do that often since I'm the only person locally who's stuck with the car since it came out.
