Evolution of front bulkheads and motor plates

Post by GoMachV »

I have searched a bit and came up with little, can anyone shed light on the evolution of the front bulkheads and motor plates? I am piecing a Jrxt together and have a slew of different mounts and towers

Also, didnt the truck come with the servo saver style white bellcranks? Sadly all mine are black servo saver type

Bellcracks:
On "boxart" and maybe some first JrxT bellcranks were black:

But later they become white:

Motor plate:
1st gen: early Jrx2 no stamp
2nd gen: late Jrx2, JrxT, Junior2, JuniorT, JrxPro: "Jrx2" stamp. But there was two different version from this: One like 1st gen and a later version with material removed where the rear upper link mount was:

1st gen: Jrx2-JrxProSE early models: Jrx2 molded:

2nd gen: JrxProSE and LXT "Team Losi" molded:

If I remember correctly, rear bulkhead with more inner upper link mounting holes did become months before motor plate suitable to use them. Because of this, material was removed by hand from motor plate to make enough room for upper link.

You're absolutely correct!!! I thought I was ok when using the white heavy duty piece on my car...until it broke. I made my own until the red version was given to me.

It probably wouldn't hurt if they aren't shown on that other thread, but for my use the notched would be too new anyway

For the front bulkhead, there are 2 versions with the jrx2 stamp. The original has a lip that extends past the bottom of the bulkhead...so it actually covered the front of the chassis. The later version did not have the lip. This was done because of the above chassis bumper...which required the lip to be cut off.

The xt's bumper mounted below the chassis...so it originally had the first version of the bulkhead.
