I had a very good run on asphalt yesterday and the car was dialed in stock. The front motor car is a great car. I think it has made me a better driver and I enjoy all the adjustability it offers. If the rear motor car is faster - I can't wait to try it out.

I like the green anodized parts Todd has on his developmental car. I think someone metioned before that it would be cool to have a Hodgimoto version in green anodize.

I love the design of the car but the ease of working on , room for servo saver, less breakin out drive ( i know ..."don't hit anything") Arm strength could use some help. .... but seriously ..................... you guy's figure those 3 things out...
your car WILL be unstopable
We are working on all of those. The new car will be coming with different material arms that in our testing has been extremely durable. All the other items you have to wait until the pics come out. All I can say is that it is nice!!

Are there going to be A-arms in the new (stronger) EA3 material for the front motor car ?

BTW, I just ran my first race with the JRX-S and I won, beating all of the local TC experts (I'm more of an off-road guy) !!! Most of them run Xrays, RDX's and TRF415's and they didn't know what hit them since the JRX never took off here in europe. It seems this car just works for me, with thanks to you all here on the forum for the set-up advice.

There is a sports bar at the one end of the casino, I sure we could score a few tables and get some suds!!

Race report from today.

I ran the first half battery with rear high diff. and the car was pretty loose in the rear like normal at our track. The track tightens up as the day goes on. I stepped back into my pits and rolled the diff. into the low position. Put the car back on the track and voila!!!! The rear end was as quick to roll around the turns but it was consistant and very much under control. I only needed to raise the rear inner camber location to dial it just perfect. The car was a little twitchy as all of the things I had done to gain steering over the past three races were still in the front. Remember I found a broken LCD pin in my right front drive this week and replaced it. That was the source of my slight push the past 3 weekends. I raised the front camber links to the top hole with my JR. camber link and the car was great. The only thing I wanted to try and didn't was to put back in my 6 deg. carriers as I think the 4 deg. ones were a tiny bit twitchy still. Qualified 2nd for the main( ran an old set of tires too long during qualifiers) and got the inside hole shot to never look back! I finished the 5 mins. .6 seconds away from lapping second place who is my X-Ray arch rival!!!! Also, the car ran the fastest lap of the day by 3 tenths. A great day was made perfect after I had just finished behind him and he immediately stepped back and asked me" Man!!!! What did you do to that car???!!!". I just smiled and told him I put on new tires for the main. LMAO I hope this helps you guys

Just thought I'd share....

Yesterday's race - 2 cars in stock: the first time I've driven my JRX-S - fastest lap was over a second faster than the other guy, put two laps on him in the final (he was running a FT TC4!)

Where do I sign for the rear motor car?????

Here is the setup sheet...

Question...

When on power exiting a turn the rear end can get a little loose if I push too hard. Would lengthening the camber links help this, or would laying the shocks down help this problem (small problem)?


Also, after driving this car for the first time on carpet I was shocked on how nice it was. I had people asking me what I was driving...why is this car so under appreciated????
