Hey Matt, Go back one page (437) and scroll down to Mike Haynes' Snowbird set-up. His cars are always dialed on carpet and I remember him saying that set-up was easy to drive.

I've tried that set-up with a diff in the front, on the tight side in stock, and it was BIG Fun!............ Try it, let us know.

Happy Racing!

Default Front suspension arms

Hi all

I am wondering if there is an aluminium after market replacement for the front suspension arm for the JRX-S

I have busted four of these in the past month. In some cases its as a result of "seemingly" glancing off the boards. It almost seems that the angle of the hit shatters the whole arm.

Thanks

Phil

Have you tried the parma bumper on your car? It's quite a bit stiffer then stock and usually helps you avoid breaking arms in an accident.

You would not want that for it will just end up breaking other stuff on the car with aluminum arms. Got yourself a Parma or PDub bumper and you should have better luck with not breaking arms.

Thumbs up JRX-S Pro :):)

First of all I have to say after purchasing my JRX-S Pro and running it this Sunday I must say that thing handled like a dream. Now I have couple of questions.

1. What lipo battery will fit JRX-S Pro, I would really like to get away from Nimh.
2. Also I just put a 19T Motor in a car and stupid me I just spooled the motor to test see if it works without breaking at in, did i just messed up the motor buy doing so ?????

You can fit a Team Orion Carbon battery in to your JRXS.

I just got two of these,How many parts fit from the R verison of this car? And also is there any other spurs you can get apart from 128t and 118t? Trying to get the right gearing for a stock class but can only just get the correct gearing running the 118t and with a 52t pinion,Hoping to get both cars out on the track in the next month,I think it should handle a dream,car just impresses me more and more every time i read more into it,Anyone else here run them in the Stock class?
