Thanks for the info. I'll try to order up some 3D printed stuff later this year and see how it goes. I figure I'll just wear these tires out then buy a shelf set and then decide on runner tires.

Here's mine. It's a neat little car. I had the same issues as everyone else, the shocks were not great. Also was missing one of the lower spring retainers on the front. I e-mailed Losi and they sent me a whole set, which I managed to rebuild into a full set of perfect condition shocks Both the originals and the replacements weren't really consistently built well. Also picked up some springs in a lot off eBay for a Mini-T, it's a different car with a solid suspension now.

Then the cool Trinity Monster motor finished the look and feel. Feels like an old school racer and a high level kids toy like the original motor. The shaft didn't fit perfect, but I don't think that pinion is going anywhere and I'm not racing it or anything. I guess worst case I shred up the spur gear and revisit later but it seems to be fine.

I'm not going to do much more to it, but it's fun to drive around.

Here I go again, doing weird stuff with this chassis. Designed up a scaled down replica of the Composite Craft top plate for the mini JRXT chassis. I had adjusted it to fit my relocated battery hold down but then noticed I had inadvertently made it nearly the same size as a shorty lipo. So behold, a Mini 5link JRX Pro with nearly 8 times the capacity of the stock battery and weighing in at just over 700g.

Special thanks to Jeff from Factory Works for cutting this so fast. I do need to make a few adjustments for the next one as I didn't compensate for where 2 of the original screws were but I am pretty happy with how much stiffness this adds.
Consistency is the key I keep misplacing.

I'm embracing the big ass battery idea.
Created some battery hold downs, swapped the 3d printed standoffs for aluminum ones, got some fresh JConcepts tires demounted and put onto a set of my Pro wheels.
