You have to go into the checkout page to see the unadvertised price.

The shocks on my car are all set to 63mm. That's fully extended full length of the shock. 62.5mm should be fine too. A half mm is like splitting hairs.

Guys, I will say this... the arm situation is not going un-noticed. The EA3 material was NOT supposed to be fragile by any means. I know, that when I contacted Todd about it, he is looking for samples of broken arms. This problem will get resolved.

On a side note (and try at your own risk)... after talking to fellow team mate Larry Fairtrace, he tried the old trick of boiling the arms. To Larry, boiling for 15 minutes and then letting the pot cool with arms in the pot, the arms felt stronger. When he meant "felt" stronger, he tried grabbing an arm with pliars and trying to break it. The arm didn't break and didn't feel any different as far as flexibility compared to another new arm out of a package. Just something to try.

Hybrid..

Might be the wrong forum.. Anyone try mounting the R suspension (Arms, Blocks, Universals, Diffs) on a standard JRXS?? I'm basically looking to run a Long-Armed Mid-motored JRXS..

Pooky told me he like to put a tea bag in with the boiling of the arms, then likes to sip it slowly as he dreams about the good old dremel days.

You can run the diffs and LCDs but not the long arms as the new hinge pin blocks hook diffrently to the chassis. Now......you might be able to convert the JRXS chassis for these blocks but I have not looked into it yet. I remember several of the guys who got to run the new diffs and longer LCDs sayng that it did help to make the old car more free in the corners. Also I think from Lutz's post from this weekend that he was running the old style one-way in his new R so I bet he had the old shorter LCD's as well. Good Luck.
