Default My JRX2 rebuild after 28years of ownership

I bought this JRX2 when i was 13 waaay back in 1990. the previous owner had upgraded the front end to JRXPro spec... it sat in a garden shed for almost 20 years and last month i decided to pull the bits out of the box and rebuild her... all new screws, shock hardware turnbuckles etc and shes lookin great again...

That’s a nice ride! I was an Associated guy, but when this car was introduced I went out and got one. They were great performers just tough to keep the rear suspension functioning like new.

If I didnt have such a soft spot for it, in my old Losi LXT I'm still sporting a Tekin 411G and the JR 27mhz radio system I used to race with it in 1990. I bring it out from time to time. It now has Deans plugs and a lipo in it

Oh yeah, it has a Lightspeed 12 double in it for a motor. Hand wound armature and cut brushes.

I think I may have an extra Novak T-4 in my garage if you're still looking for one.

That's sweet! Are you planing to run her or is it a self queen? Ether way it's still cool to see.
Anyway, I have a 410 M1-c. It needs all new wires at the min. There are none on it now. Otherwise it looks nice. I don't know if it works.
Also, a bag of tuning parts if your in need of some.
