The carbon pattern looks like the weave that fibre-lyte
In the Uk used to use. It’s not on their losi parts list but that doesn’t mean it’s not one of theirs.

This is the set I have they work great for Tamiya style connectors, along a bunch of other types.

I'd look really closely at that chassis, it looks like it could be a carbon wrap material. Can't say that I've seen a losi chassis with that weave. But I know guys have wrapped them before.

Edit: Hmm, not sure why it is rotating that picture?
If you make sure your pics are wider then taller they won’t rotate.

Thanks for the tip on pin removers, Joe!

You know I did think about whether there is some sort of carbon-look tape/wrap on that JRX-2 chassis - if that's what it is, it was done very well.
- I will take a closer look and see if I can find any imperfection.

What sort of wheels do these adapters use? They almost look like they would replace Hornet wheel centers, but the package says All Super System wheels, so I guess Bru Line wheels?

Ok, this confuses me. Futaba S3003 servo with a JR wire lead?

Fake futaba. You can buy em really cheap from AliExpress and other china places. The funky lettering and the colors of the servo wires are the giveaways

Interesting. Faking an S3003 is like counterfeiting a $1 bill.

You can get the same servos without the fake futaba name on Amazon too, just search s3003

If you could sell those bills for $.15, then it makes perfect sense. You have to sell a lot more of them, but you sell them because of a name. :D

I kind of assumed these were Schumacher but was not quite sure given my lack of familiarity with the brand, any thoughts?
