To make the top pulley clearance. One has to file the front face of spur gear adpater where the e=clip sits to allow the shaft to move out of the adapter (not too much or drive pin will come out of drive groove) which allows you to put shims between inside of pulleys and bearing spacers. Then sand down drive pins on drive pulley to flush with adapter so spur gear seats flat on adapter. I had to do this so I can go racing while waiting to next run of Flyfox layshafts.

especialy with a jako blue you need heavey neg cambers, FR and RR, more neg camber car handles better! one day I was runnning like 4deg! then I backed off

How do you guys get a 2 deg with the JR front camber link without getting bind? Not a big fan of the JR setup and have yet to make the Turnbuckle change over.

Most all are using the ball stud link, Not the JR link...The ball stud style link does give more steering also....

Nice! Yeah I went up to anderson rc in Thomasville for their first race yesterday and cleaned house even against some guys runing 5700 castle motors with my 13.5. Really tiny track with old asphalt(aggrogate showing) bit still challengin and fun. In rock hill are you talking about Hobbystop/The Grove? I thought that was "the chaise" for the carolina touring series?

Weekends for the next month are iffy as I'm getting married. But as long as the weather stays nice for a while after oct 16th I'm game.

How much do you need to shim up the ball stud using the ti rod camber link? It seems the JR link is set much higher then a regular ball stud setup. Also whatball stud size is used in the C hub and spindle?

you can ues a LOSA1233 or you can make one Like I did showing on my blog, I like mine better cause I dont have to pop out a ball cups every time I do maintainance.

here is the link showing how to make one in my way.
http://dajohnwee.blogspot.com/2009/0...r-rod-mod.html

you dont need to shim em up since tie-rod set up is lot shorter, it will give you lots of negative camber gain anyway.
