I was trying to set my front droop at 1.5 over ride height and then i cant set my ride height more then 4.5mm? I usually run droop at 2.5 with 5mm ride height. What am i doing wrong?

I think you're doing something wrong here. Remember, there are 2 different adjustments on the arms. 1 is the droop screw and the other is the bump stop. The bump stop screw is the one closer to the sway bar mounts. We do not use them as Mike posted a couple posts above. Setting the droop "above ride height" is really simple.

1. Loosen the droop screws in the arms so that the car has a lot of up-travel.
2. Set your ride height to what you want with your shock adjustments
3. Check your tweak on a tweak station to make sure everything is good
4. Now it's time to set the droop...

Put your ride height measurement tool in the same spot you measured for ride height. Now pull up on the shock tower, but make sure you're holding the tires down. The chassis should raise up, but the tires still on the ground. Measure how high the chassis goes compared to what ride height is set at. That's your droop "above ride height". To set it, just loosen or tighten the droop screw until you get what you want.

Hope that helps.

Alberto, a 1 inch will fit with right in, or you could use any size longer that is threaded in all the way to the middle, and trim them down.

Along with what Schreff said. After you are done with the ride height gauge and droop screws you will want to take your wheels off and use a droop tool to make sure you are even on both sides left and right. Put your car on droop blocks and measure the distance from a flat surface to the bottom of your hubs. If you have made even adjustments on the left and right sides no more wrenching will be necessary.

Jason thanks for the help

At step 4 should the shock be on or off?

In reality, it doesn't matter, but I keep them on.

Hello I need some help. I thinking about buying a JRXS. I dont think its the R version. My questions is will a Losi 5000mah 2s hard case pack fit it? The pack measures 5 3/8'' long 1 3/4'' wide and 7/8'' thick.

If not is there any conversion kit available for the car that will work.

Any help will be appreciated

Thanks
