JRX front bulkhead brace?

Post by aconsola » Wed May 10, 2017 11:45 am

I just hit BIN on this set on ebay, I have andy's arms already but have never seen the steering arm or bulkhead brace. Also I note an x on the front of the arm where hinge pin passes through which is not on my otherwise similar appearing andys arms.

Does anyone have info about these parts? Part numbers or pics on builds?

A hinge pin brace seems like a good idea to protect the now expensive front bulkhead for runners, who can replicate this part? Better in aluminum or graphite?

I think the "X" was to differentiate between the Jrx and Ultima arms. Other than the hinge pin size, pretty sure they're identiclal.

Both Trinity parts were originally designed for the GTX gas truck! But as you know that covers many older vehicles as well! :)

Yes Trinity had the blue aluminum metal bulkhead and shock tower too for GXT. If you can find they work on entire X2 series. I had a set once.

I've found better luck making these braces out of aluminum for replicating purposes. I've done graphite and maybe just not thick enuf but I've also broke a few...

Never seen the steering arm, but most likely also for the GTX or NXT.
But if only there was a place that had documented a lot of the old Losi parts. :)

Or someone who had them for sale, with the required longer hinge pins even would be nice. :lol:

I don't know how I missed that.
No more early morning Ebay before coffee for me.
Have to add one to my next order!

Hard to find for sure, as are these shock mounts. Seen a fair amount of the brace and steering link. :)

Lovely, I never saw NIP ones, cool. One came with a car that passed through my life and left all too soon.
