    Losi JRX Pro Restoration



    Hi to all - I'm new to this forum. I just dug out my R/C collection from 20 years ago. I already sold some items, but thinking about keeping and running my JRX Pro. Before I use it, would like to do a mild restoration, tear down, cleaning, and reassembly. Before starting, I have some questions for the Losi experts out there.



    1. Rear tires - I need to replace them as the originals are bald from street bashing. I would like to re-use the factory rims, where can I get 2.00" x 1.50" tires? I went on Ebay and found "vintage" tires but the prices were insane, $40-60 shipped. Are there any modern tires in this size? I can't seem to find anything.



    2. It's been a long time, but when I rebuild the gearbox, what type of lube should I use for the gears, if any? I found Losi ball diff lube online, so I know I can still get that. I was able to download the Losi instructions online, but there is no mention of gearbox lube, only the diff.



    3. The shocks were innovative at the time, with the cartridge system for easy rebuilding. My question is, are these still available new, or do I have to search the web and look for some vintage items?



    Here are some pics:

    Nice looking pro! Nothing against this site, but for vintage RCs, go to www.rc10talk.com.

    I have several Pros and I love vintage RCs, but one thing I'm not a fan of is vintage wheels and vintage electronics.

    RE: Losi JRX Pro Restoration

    you can rebuild those shocks with losi's newer cartidges:

    the gears are not intended to be lubed, just the diff. (good gears don't need lube. lol)
    if you want to run the car i suggest modding it to accept modern 2.2 wheels and tires.
    i have pics of what you need to do if you need help.
    most, if not all, of the parts can be sourced on the bay. great car, enjoy it.

    RE: Losi JRX Pro Restoration

    Thanks kaiser1. I'm going to start rebuilding this weekend.

    I read through the manual again, and there was no mention of lubing the gears, just the special stuff for the ball diff. I plan to order that soon too.

    lifeandhowtoliveit - thanks for the rc10talk.com tip. I posted the same topic over there and a member recommeded a 2.0" tire from Losi, part # is LOSA7378S in case others are looking too.

    RE: Losi JRX Pro Restoration

    I've given it some thought, and decided to try and sell my JRXPro again. I initially put it up for sale, then took it off market, but now I want to sell.

    Here's a link to the ad on another forum: http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/inde...6&#entry406636. If you are interested, send me a PM.
