Default Lipo's ?

Does anyone know if Team Losi has changed their position concerning the compatibility of LIPO batteries with the JRXS or the new rear motor kit?

The Orion LIPO will fit the car easily.

These upgrades will help the car rotate in the corners better???? Or will it help the old car steer more through the corners?? Thanks

Todge,
Will the R version come with a body like the F.E.? If so do you know what type yet? Will it also come with foams too?

are the front axles LCD or CVD with the new diffs?

i ask because i've had bad luck with the LCD's coming apart, so I run CVD's. seems that with the longer bones, CVD's wouldn't be as abusive to the front end as they are now with the super short bones.

Weren't the LCD's originally designed for when you ran a spool diff so it did not chatter so bad? If you don't run the spool it really is no big deal to just run CVD's. I run a spool all the time and just use the LCD's. I had issues with them coming apart at first, you just have to be careful when you heat the shrink tube to make sure it covers the pins well.

i've been building them right. i've had enough come apart to make myself run cvd's, whether running a diff or a spool. i overcame having the long outrive come apart by making my own outdrive savers with some thin wall brass tubing.

Interesting, I have had them come apart but not a lot of times for me to run CVD's. I must be lucky. I just rebuilt the ones on my one sedan last week for they were pretty hammered. I also run the bearings on the pins for the outdrives as well, not sure if that makes it better or not.

Durn Russ!!!! What choo been hit'n???? LOL

I have only had a problem with the LCD's sleeve that connects the shaft and axel. Of course, this was after I whallopped a wall or something. I did in the very begining run the bearings on the LCD's, but they only blew out after 1 race day with the spool. Now with the outdrives, I have never blown one out but I have broken them smooth off from the pulley side with the spool. Again........this was after I smacked the crap out of something. Sorry to hear you have had problems Russ. But it sounds like an engineer has solved your outdrive problem. LOL I read your profile! hehehehe

I broke a couple of the bearings myself, but after that I just stay away from the boards and all is good!! I do keep a supply on hand for those times if you do break something and it comes apart only to just loose it somewhere on the track.

Does anybody know what to expect if I change the front hex's to either the middle or widest one???? Thanks

Wider front ends will steer less, but be more stable in braking and through corners. Narrow widths will have slightly more in-corner steering. If the car already has plenty of steering, wider is better.

Just a few spare cents...
