has anyone tested the difference between the jr upper arm link and regular camber link on the type r . i know what the manual says but i rather go on experieces. i ran my car and rob luv s, he has a regular link i didnt feel any difference. only got to run my car once so havent got a chance to really test and i dont think rob ever tried the jr link other than he ran my car once and he said he didnt feel a difference either.

With the setup currently on my rubber car it called for a regular link but it gave it way too much steering for my taste. I went back to the JR link and it made it way better to drive for me. My foam car I have the standard link on it and it feels fine with that setup. I remember Todd posting awhile ago about how the standard link can give it more steering, I can not explain this but did experience it on my rubber car.

My car came with a PRS spur adapter and one of the screw holes was stripped.
Does someone other than PRS make an adapter for these car's?

I'd kinda like to avoid the aluminum one again if I could.

Get out the calipers and match them up. Here is the chart.

Hey all as a reminder a guy was looking for the spring wire size chart...to tell them apart without the little stickers:

10.5lb .045"
12.5lb .047"
15lb .052"
17.5lb .054"
20lb .056"
25lb .060"
30lb .063"
35lb .066"
42.5lb .071"
50lb .072"
60lb .073"

Hi.
Whith my setup for foam, i prefer the Jr link. It give more steering in midle and exit of corner and have more feels fine.

Does anybody have trouble with their NiMH cells rubbing against the rear bulkheads when inserting and removing the batteries? I think maybe it's karma, I'm pretty sure these batteries hate me.

I file that part of my chassis and it helps, but they will rub going in unless you really finess them.
