I'm running a 72/35 in my Zero S with the vertical mount. It's tight, but just fine.

I had a Zero S.
It had issues 'out of the box' & must have alot of upgrades to make it a decent car.
But parts are dirt cheap, upgrades are dirt cheap.

I NEEDED (not wanted) metal steering mech, turnbuckles, smaller layshaft pullies, metal layshaft assembly, the upgrade belts, the rear shock tower/body mount 416 hack etc etc

Would be a good car after all that.

I find you do that with any cheap entry chassis. I did it to my Mi1, and my friend is doing it with his zero s. at least with the zero s everything is cheap. I haven't done much upgrading with the XI, it's already done. I guess that's an advantage of higher level chassis.

I've only been racing since last spring but I run a pair of JRX R's (VTA and TC). Seems to be a solid chassis for both classes. I'm far from a great driver but there are a couple other Losi's at the local track that run pretty well too. I bought my first Type R a few years ago but I picked up my second one here on the boards for a nice price. I'm pretty sure there is a roller available around here. Check the JRX-S Type R thread.

I just picked up a TC6 on a deal, so that will be my 17.5 and my FT TC4 will become my vintage for a while.

I'm Losi-fied myself, but with a XXX-s instead. The car simply refuses to do anything wrong. Of course I work on the set-up and maintenance, but even a poorly set-up one with average maintenance will get around the track pretty well. It's my "go to" ride, it is so easy to drive it should be illegal...
