I clicked on the JRXS pic where it said more info and on the right side it said Not Yet Availible and Due Late January. I might have gone to the Main site from the Torque e-mail.

I got to see a losi drivers JRXS the tuesday night, I was pretty impressed with the car. I thought that the drive train was not going to be that free, boy was I wrong. The drive train was better than a XXX-S, and was real free, just as good as some of the best XRAY cars I have seen.

I was pretty impressed with this car, and it look to be built pretty stout also. His car was Gil Losi Jr's car, so it probably has a lot of time in it to free up the drive train. Every thing on the car was cool, and the way every thing was layed out was good to, I thought.

Default Throw us a bone

Man, Losi needs to throw us a bone.

-Release some new info...
-Show future hop ups...
-Put up some new pics on their site...

Something....

So we can at least have something new to talk about. Personally, I would like to see more detailed pics on their site so that people don't have to search all over the web to get them. The car is public now, no more secrets, so.........why the limited info?

That was one of the things that I liked best when I got both my Yok SD and my HPI Pro4. That I knew the best pics, the most accurate info, and the most up to date info, would be on those companies' website. By the time I got those, I knew every inch of the car, what size spur it came with, how thick the chassis was, what the internal ratio was, who its parents were......everthing!

Right now, there are private websites that have 2-3 times the info and pics that the official Losi site has. Kinda odd...

Maybe its just that the people are trying to drive their TC4's like they did their TC3 and thats why its not working right now??? Who knows...

I'm just not too much of a believer in whether a "car" can hang with another "car". I've switched cars about half a dozen times in the past 2 1/2 seasons, and my lap times pretty much stay consistent.(which is also the reason I don't fear switching cars )

I've found some cars easier to drive/tune or work on, but not just simply "faster" or "better" or "worse".

But of course thats just my expeirence.

JRXS is dialed. Pauls car was stupid fast and if not for Josh driving a perfectly calm race for 5 min, paul would have won.

Paul tapped a few boards but every time he lost 10 feet to josh, he pulled it back in just as fast. He was an absolute gentlman in that he never hit josh from behind, and i swear I could not fit my hand between them in some turns.
