Default Team Losi JRXS

It looks like the new Losi sedan will be called the JRXS as mentioned by T. Hodge. It looks like Xmas came early for us. TC4 and now this. Not to mention the rumored shaft Xray. From the rumored specs, it looked like the boys at Losi did a lot of R&D on this bad boy.

Looks like it's almost ready for production. Except for the machined arm mounts. I like the hard anodized look of the center chassis brace/motor mount. Keeps the color scheme of the rest of their line up. Ingenious way of fitting the servo backwards. Looks like the battery will be mounted from under the chassis. The top brace looks fixed and I can't see gettin a battery past the reciever on the side of the chassis.
No BK bones though?

dont think they need the bk bones. The arms are so short the bones wont plunge into the outdrive more than a mm or so. Just a guess.

Do you think Losi will release the "G+/Factory Kit" first?
Since a new XXS RTR came out and the JRXS chassis is made of CF I believe they will, probably later there will be a molded version....

kind of looks like a pro-3 from HPi to me. Hope it doesn't have the same torque steer due to the diffs being offset. Unfortunately we all know that losi will never release the car with that chassis

But they will release the car like that. It is easier to make updates to the car when it is graphite like that. Much like the losi. Once you go molded, you have to pay for the mold before you can change the car.

I think the sport RTR2 was so they could maybe get rid of the ton of stiffezel parts they have. I'm sure they'll still make graphite parts for the XXX-SG+ though, but not forever. Just my .$02.
I think the JRXS will be a no compromise racer from the beginning. Like the BK2, MF2, & XXX4G+
