Will give it a try.Thanks

I am scratching my head at the lack of a front belt. Yes I would say your droop is way to much and if your driving without the front belt put it back on. lol

He did say he runs it with a spool (4wd) but had the belt off for photo.

James, are you "driving" it into and out of the corners??? With a front spool, you have to really be on the throttle especially during sweepers. I would try to drop that rear sway bar, or go to something smaller. Check that diff also.

I used to have a similar problem with car being sideways on exit. Definately check the rear diff, that was my problem.

My diff is tight and smooth,it just that car seen to get back from roll slower and look like 3 wheel,the front 1 wheel is of ground.
Example:turning at left hand,the left front tire looked lift up or unload.

How good are these spools and plates???

I tried tightening the front diff until I screwed up the thrust bearing. Does this plate require a thrust bearing???

They work. Never had a problem with the thrust bearing though.

do not remove the two diff plates on the outdrives. The diff screw should come to a halt when tightened.

You can't manually make the adjustment from 4 to 6 degrees. You have to buy a 6 degree one listed below or a 4 degree also listed below.

You can go the route of xray if you like but you will pay for it...

If anyone is looking for spares or a cheap VTA roller or two, I have 2 backup JRXS-Rs for sale here.



Also anyone have a Flying Fox spool that they would like to part with (V1 or V2)?
