that's why I said i'll only purchase a new car when they stop making parts for mine. So far I only replaced a small number of parts. My JR servo went dead and even the failsafe didn't help and I crashed at full throttle into a tire that was protecting the wall. My bumper broke, my body ripped, and my tie rod and dogbone flew out. The tie rod and the dogbone was an easy fix, so was the body, but my bumper was way past repair. Thank god Data gave me another bumper assembly, or else I would of had to leave early. I did strip the 18 tooth pulley, almost to the point where it was close to not pushing the front wheels. I got a new one, and not just one pulley but I got all of them, plus i got like 5-6 more pullies in my box. Right now i'm just gathering parts, Tower messed up my order a couple of times so I got extra parts for free, because some stuff was missing, but they shipped out the right stuff in time.

My car handles really good on the track, it's my driving that needs improvement, not the car. I'm still adjusting my radio, I had someone help me out with the radio, but it's not done, it needs more programming.

Some people are getting the new cars because their driving is almost flawless, and the newer cars weigh lighter, go faster, brake faster, and easier to adjust, cutting track time significantly.

It's not just a couple of pennies, it's a couple of thousands of pennies.

my RR has plenty of space, I stuffed my wires between the fuel tank and the throttle servo. And I still managed to fit a failsafe in there too.

yes, they just released the jr xs3 pro, but the throttle servo that came with it burned out really quick and crashed my car really bad, even a fail safe didn't help because the servo died, especially in the middle of the straight.

The pro cost the same price as the regular xs3 and it has adjustible throttle trigger, a strap so your arm feels more comfortable, smaller reciever, and 10model memory, instead of 6.
The radio is good, but if you want good electronics get like KO servos.

There's a thing looks like solid axle for rear or spool for front. Which is it?

would it be better to use the al servo horn on the throttle, instead of the soft plastic one you've got on the car?

Default servo horn

hi all.
i chose the plastic one because if i have a knock on that side i would rather the servo horn break and my rubber band will shut the motor down...i dont like the placing of the throttle servo...im in the process of making some carbon fibre shrouds to protect them....
ill keep you posted.
mike
