This weekend was phenominal!!!
A couple guys at the mushroom bowl helped me out yet again and my car is really close to being dialed. I just have to fine tune weight transfer w/ maybe some spring changes or ride height changes but other than that i'm suuuuuper happy w/ the car and it's performance. W/ somone else's used batteries that have been beaten to hell i'm only 2 laps off pace on my best laps and 3 laps off pace consistently.
I've changed bodies and that was 50% of the handling problem, the other 50% was the fact that the car i bought on ebay was not assembled correctly by the previous owner and after buying another jrxs that was assembled properly and comparing the 2 i've gotten everything installed where it should be. Not only that but both my front arms were cracked.
I used some very slight modifications to the numan setup sheet, and have a couple questions:
1) What are bk shock mounts?
2) on the setup sheet their doesn't seem to be a spot for front lower shock mounting hole or maybe i just missed it.
I take back my peeve about the hinge pin set screws. A remarkable thing i've discovered: If one actually tightens the set screws down properly they work
... go figure. So yes, a poor mechanic always blames his tools hahahaha.
I've also come up w/ one more peeve
. The 4200 battery tray for the jrxs is metal... What braniac decided that something that holds batteries should be made out of a conductive material? I fried a pack (one vented cell) because it shorted on the tray. Now i'm scowering my basement chemical box trying to find something to coat the tray w/ that will insulate it. Either that or i'm gonna be buying a whooooole lot of cell shrink wrap. I tried nail polish but that jut flakes off.
Last note, a mosquito bit me in the middle of my forehead and i took my hand off the wheel for a second to smak it and crashed my car 5 laps
into the main and broke a front carrier
. I was pissed at myself, should have just let the dam bug bite me ahhahahaa.
