Several of us ran the home made version of this link on the JRXS for most of last year. I personally loved it because it keeps thr front end flatter under cornering. Try it -- you may love it!

Thanks
Or you can go noisy & use the 90t 48pitch spur losi make for it - I can gear down to 5.15 (90/32) before the motor starts to rub on the servo.

Before it starts I use 48p coz I've got a lot of 48p pinions for offroad and couldn't be arsed having to stock up on 64p - also our track has the odd small loose rock and 48p lasts a whole lot longer for me - I watch the 64p guys replace spurs every other run or so

429racer - They use the same castor blocks, so I would have to say yes.

Thanks Guys I'll order some up. I've heard that the material used for the Type R was kinda weak at the moment, do you think I sould wait a bit?

Default li-po mod

has anyone modified thier jrx-s for a li-po pack yet? I have and it almost brought me to tears all the cutting and grinding I had to do to the chassis to get it to barely squeese into the battery compartment.but in the end I feel it was worth the sacrifice.

You probably just made that car really seseptable to tweak if you ground that much of it away. You probably should have just sold it the way it was and got a Type R that was designed for Lipo.

So you feel it was all worth it to hack the car up just to get a Lipo to fit?

would the numan setup be too soft for a brushless setup on medium to high grip asphalt track.

I'm sure it would be a good start since it was a balanced setup...if it feels too soft just stiffen it up a spring all around.

Save yourself the hassle and just buy some arms. I am sure your LHS can get them for you if they don't already stock them.
