That should be the one. Once you do it, adjusting the front end will become much more of a pleasure.

Are the screws and nuts for the JRXS Type R in english or metrix units? What size hex and nut drivers are necessary for the car?

how do you run a long rear camber link without coming dangerously close to have the turnbuckle just pull out like it did to me today? and how is everyones front tire wear?

My front tires seem to wear more on rubber and foam. If you want to run the camber link in the longest position possible you will need longer ballcups or a longer turnbuckle.

so you seem to be getting lots of front tire wear too? my fronts started the day worn pretty bad, but by the end of the day (4 heats) they were literally worn through on the inside.. i'll look for a longer turnbuckle..

Setup and driving style have a lot to do with it, but fronts typically always seem to wear a little faster. I drive extremely hard so my fronts are always wearing out.

My 007 on foams literally wore fronts twice as fast as rears. It caused me to start running dp all around, because I ran out of dp/o and still had a bunch of dp.

What can I do with this thing to get the rearend more planted on lowbite asphalt? Is there some change I can make to it in the rear that would allow this? I am pretty much using the Nats setup but with 6 degree fronts other then that it is on that setup. I works pretty good and is fast but the rear is twitchy sometimes. I also pulled to spool out of it and went with a diff, that seemed to help it handle a little better as well.
