Flying Fox RC have announced their competition aluminium spool for the Losi JRXS Type-R. The spool is precision machined out of high quality aircraft grade 7075 aluminium to incredibly tight tolerances. Using the standard pulley and 2 standard Type-R outdrives they have managed to remove all traces of the age old problem of the spool slipping or the thread side hub stripping. Rotating weight has also been reduced using computer aided techniques to remove material from non-load bearing portions of the assembly.
New from Flying fox Racing is this replacement Losi JRX-S Type R layshaft. These layshafts are precision machined from aircraft grade 7075 aluminium and are drop in replacements for the stock steel layshaft. They have more material on the shaft centre to eliminate spur stripping bending common with the stock steel layshaft and also have a slightly larger gap between the pullies allowing you to avoid modifying your LiPo packs to fit the Type-R. As an added bonus you can you any spur you like such as the popular Kimbrough, Robinson or PRS spurs.
