Just got my JRX-S. What can I do to get more off-power steering. My car has a lot of on-power but barely has the opposite. Thanks.

Inigo
Try more caster. 6 degree blocks are going on my car for the next race. Also the 41t pulley in the front will help steering too.

As for the Spintek I should have them by the middle of the month, if the ETA is correct. Let me know how many you want.
count me in for 2....

will they eliminate the use of both the smart tray and my discharger???

I am not to "keen" on the terminology fromt he website on the unit, but if I am correct, the Spintek unit will take of my battery maintenance, and will actually do it "better"....

yeah or nay??

todd,

i have a bk2 question, and it might be just me, (too much time with a sedan), but here goes,

i am running jesse robers setup from crcrc, the car seems good, however the track has a sweeper at the end of the straight, when i lift to make the corner, the car puses to the wall, how can i get more off power stearing, again this may just be me, it is possible that i need to get on it more through here, or just lift sooner,,,

thanks,

matt

Default Spektrum

Hey Todd,

question:

in the pictures on the internet of the car, I noticed a capacitor connected to the spektrum, "what is the purpose???", also, what is the reasoning for the washers on the upper deck above the batteries?? (for an increase in rotation/flexing" due to NOT tightening down the post all the way???")

cars all built, and gonna trek down to Scott's track on Saturday for some "break-in" before Jimmy's race on Sunday...

see ya' then!

After the Speedworld Cup racing this weekend, we should have new setup info to share with JRX-S drivers next week.
