Major interests (for stock/asphalt) are:
Springs - Good selection? The car comes with 12.5 rear and 35lb front. For asphalt/carpet I would get 15-20lb for the rear. For the front I would get. 42-60lb. That should have you covered well

Pistons - Good selection?So far I have only liked the stock pistons in my setups.

Pivot mounts - Do I need all the different configurations?I would recommend just getting a extra 1 and 2 degree pivot.

Sway bar - Two sets of bars will give you two of .030, .040, .050, and .060.

Shock oil - 40wt-60wt

Front spindles and carriers - Good selection? 2-6 degrees

One-way - For what circumstances on asphalt? A oneway will be great on larger flowing tracks where brakes are not needed.

Default Setup for 4 Fun Hobbies and Raceway

Since you guys did so much testing up at 4 Fun Hobbies and Raceway, how about giving us a headstart on set up. and how different will the setups be for stock and 19T. And what bodies should work best for the car as a starting point.

Thanks

Todd,

To clarify.

Are those pluses (+) and/or negatives (-) for the pivot mounts?

Default ? for Mr. Hodge about fans...

Hello Todd,

I was looking through some images on jrxs.net, and I came across an image of your prototype jrx-s at the Region 12 races. I noticed that you had two fans pointed at your motor....

I was wondering exactly what size are those fans, and where did you get them? I ask because I've been looking around locally, and the closest I can get is 4x4cm small computer fans from RadioShack. It would appear that yours are smaller, and I will have to order them online, so I want to be sure to get the right ones the first time!

Thanks for your help!

I raced at 4 Fun yesterday. I will get a setup posted soon. I also raced 19T so I know the setup will be good in stock too.

That is something I was testing. I do not run them anymore. They were AE fans. I don't think they offered much.
