Now what would you need to have for droop on your droop gauge to set this up this way ?

Is it simply 1 on the droop gauge or for instance 3 (4-1) ?

Same question for ride height 4.5 mm and droop stated as 3mm above ride height.
To measure the droop as stated here, it's how much you can lift your chassis before the tires lift off the ground. Droop set for 1mm above ride height would be you can lift the chassis 1mm before the tires lift. I then use the gauge to make sure they're even from left to right.

That one way isnt being made becasue it doesnt improve performance at all from what I can tell. I have run both of them many times and switching one ways did absolutley nothing. Sorry to burst all your bubbles.

Gearchart.com has the JRX-S, doesn't say Type-R, but its still 1.83 ratio. Not sure about 48pitch though.

With the PRS adaptor you can run any standard spur, so yes you can run 48 pitch if you want to.

I posted this earlier and got no feedback so I thought that I would try again. I am debating between the JRX-S Type R and the Corally RDX Phi. I had the following questions. I currently drive TC5.

1. Will the following lipo fit: http://www.ultralinehobbies.com/inde...=559&parent=56 ? This is a deciding factor since these are the only batteries that I have and dont want to buy new ones.
2. What is the camber mod for the front arms? Any other modifications that are done to the car to make it work better? what is the JR link opposed to the standard lnk?
3. What spare parts and tuning parts should I get?
4. I read about this short arm modification. Do I need to get seperate arms for this or do you use the existing arms? Is it necessary for carpet/asphalt rubber?
5. What servo is recommended? I have Futaba 9550 and a Futaba 9451. Should I use the heavier 9451 due to lipo weight?
6. I read that the TC5 front C-hubs will fit on the car with some dremeling. Is this correct? Do you recommend 4 deg or 6 deg? I like aluminum C-hubs and they are only available in 6 deg for the TC5.
7. Does the car use metric or standard screws and nuts?

Thanks in advance.

Link did not work

2. What is the camber mod for the front arms? Any other modifications that are done to the car to make it work better? what is the JR link opposed to the standard lnk?
Car comes with JR Link, and you can choose if needed to use the traditional style link - using 2 ball cups and the link

3. What spare parts and tuning parts should I get?
Check with others at you track, but maybe caster blocks, possibly arms??

4. I read about this short arm modification. Do I need to get seperate arms for this or do you use the existing arms? Is it necessary for carpet/asphalt rubber?
Yes IF you want to run short arms you would need to purchase. No need though in general 95% use only the stock arms (long)

5. What servo is recommended? I have Futaba 9550 and a Futaba 9451. Should I use the heavier 9451 due to lipo weight?
Your choice on this but if Lipo and you have a 9451 - use it.

6. I read that the TC5 front C-hubs will fit on the car with some dremeling. Is this correct? Do you recommend 4 deg or 6 deg? I like aluminum C-hubs and they are only available in 6 deg for the TC5.
Why? Because you want Alum? Alum bends too easy and this can be hard to find.

7. Does the car use metric or standard screws and nuts?
Standard
