Orangemazda’s project JRXT

Post by orangemazda »

Here’s a jrxt that I’ve been putting together for a while. It’s got some nifty bits, some RPM arms and wide 5-link set, RPM nose brace, some powdercoated coolness, polished shocks, and “rare” parts. I hope you like it.

I am unfamiliar with all the variations of the mid-early Losi lineup. Is this a 5 link JrT or a JRXT with a Pro-SE chassis mod? Looks sweet. Nice work. Digging the motorplate treatment and dabbles of that boxart Losi red throughout. Solid!

Any plans for stuffin' some 'lectronics in that bad mambajamba
Hope you're doin' something fun.

I used a Junior T chassis solely because I had the cool RPM front chassis brace. I may find some red Tekin electronics for it eventually.

That really turned out great! Just enough red. Some really nice aftermarket parts. How did you get the RPM bulkhead red? I have about 5 of those and they are all black. I wouldn't think dye would work on black.

Technically, I think I would call this a Junior T with 5 link, but what do I know! The paint looks very well done.

What Blast said is correct, at one time it was a white bulkhead that someone dyed (sacrilege😄) but it was actually the piece that started the red theme for the build!

I agree it’s more of a Junior T mutant, but with the Jrxt body, wheels, shock towers, and steering, it could go either way. It’s like if the Jrxt and Junior T had a love child!

^ Gotcha. I thought you had said it was a RPM bulkhead, and I don't believe they ever came in white.

That is awesome! Thanks for sharing it. You mentioned a wide 5 link set. Was that a RPM option or a T (truck) Losi variation?

They are RPM parts. The rear links and side mounts are wider.
