Caesar's Losi Jrx2 Build

Post by caesar »

Howdy,

Starting a losi Jrx2 build. Hoping to build a shelfer and a runner with leftover parts.
I purchased a losi off a forum member for parts and some nip parts that should be here soon.
I'll update this with pics as I go along.

This is what I'm starting with (wish me luck). Going to apply automotive matt black vinyl to get the chassis looking new.

Just applied vinyl, need some more trimming and make more holes, but looks ok I think.

Thanks.

So far I haven't used any new parts, can't wait to get my new rear shock tower and 5 link so I can finish the rear.

Some more progress on this, I decided not to use any of the new parts and save them for another build down the track when and if I get my hands on a mint chassis. Rear end is done, swapped a set of logo rims on my jrx pro and used the trinity wheels on this.

Very nicely done.

Love my JRX2. Rear end grip is just unreal due to the 5 link set up.

Those thin collars are really prone to failure- save them for the early shelf car and run the thick collars for sure..

I have to say that the vinyl You used looks really close to original graphite surface of the chassis, at least in the pictures. Also almost all other parts also looks like new/mint rather than used. Good work!

Thanks, I took a punt with the vinyl and I must say it's a real good match.

Do you know where I can get those collars? one of them has a crack already.

Don't know about losi suppliers in the land of Oz, but the PN is 5023/a5023. Horizon in the states is out of stock, but several ebayers have them.
