For physical fit yes, but not for shape. They don’t have the flange. They are also, in my experience anyway, pre tapped so they don’t self thread. One run and they will loosen up

Always something making like difficult :lol: Thanks. Guess I'll be adding a 4-40 wrench to my metric traveling tool kit.

You can’t go anywhere without a 1/4” nut driver anyway!

Solid life advice right there! I will be traveling an hour or so to track that races Mini B and T's. I intend to dominate, take all the trophies, and never show up again. I will be a legend who blew into town and was never seen again.

If you don't need deep well, a common bit driver works.

I finally drove my Mini JRX-2 around the house some this weekend - it is about what I expected in terms of performance, i.e. similar to a brushed Mini-T.
- I do not notice any shock-oil leaks, however both front shocks seem to be low on oil - lots of "air-bubble" noises when move them up/down.
- The rear shocks seem to be quite nice.


** Is there any way to adjust steering end-points with the RTR transmitter - I kinda doubt it, but hoping maybe someone knows a 'hack' for this?!?
- I think there was a 'hidden' way to adjust end-points on the Mini-T; hold the transmitter wheel to full left turn while pressing a button, or something like that?

Thanks for any advice!

Use the steering rate (SR) adjustment.

While working on sizing and carefully placing holes in the chassis file I just did this up quickly.. It is going to be a pain to print.. if anyone does post a picture lol

This one is likely going to need to be printed on it's side if you want any chance of it not breaking the first time you hit something.

That's the style I would want for sure. I wonder if maybe bending one out of I don't know say 2mm Kydex? 1.5mm perhaps. Wait, I have a left over Chinese food black container that seems about right, where's my heat gun! :lol:

Kydex would work, 1.5 would be fairly close. This is sized as close as I could get it to the original for those that are enamored with their 3d printer heh :)
