Default Plug

Can I plug add white ball cups to the jrxs kits. even if it takes 2 more weeks.

I bet if you poled all the people who plan on buying the car, if they would rather have the white cups or not, 100% would say YES

If your adding the lvd's add the cups c'mon =)

And can each JRX-S also be built and prepped by Todd Hodge and Matt Francis too?

With a Spectrum
With 1.19V cells
With a body by Franks Bodies

Just dreamin'.

Default Washers under ball studs and camber link adjustments

Todd-

Looking for a good explination on what a washer will do for you under a ball stud what the effects will be and what will a shorter or longer camber link do for you as well as the camber link on the adj on the shock tower. Higher hole vs a lower hole etc. I see many of the Losi drivers drill a hole on the shock tower and does that raise or lower the roll center?

Thanks,

hey, got a pretty stupid question, but it must be asked. before, when racing my xxx-s i have not done anything about truing the tires, and now i got a new pair of foams for a relatively small carpet track, i am wondering if it would be better to slightly true the foams for improved handling(my hobbyshop has a truer) if so what would you recommend for someone looking to be faster but not to take off so much foam that ill have to buy new foams for a while. Thanks,
Matthew

Raising the outer camber ball stud will give you more camber gain. This will make the rear/front of the car softer in roll stiffness. By loosing roll stiffness the car will most likely have more bite on the end of the car. On the rear you will notice more rear side bite. On the front more all around steering. As you move the inner link down on the tower you get the same result just in a larger increment. Also by moving the inner link down you are raising the roll center. A longer rear link will give the car the most stability. A shorter link will have the most steering yet be less inconsistent.

Yes this has seemed to help quite a bit with the lag problem that some racers are experiencing. Why? I am not sure.

bballer-Not a stupid question at all. Well the largest diameter that I would run a set of foams at is 59mm and that is pushing it. I would say start at 60 to 61mm and see how that works. I think the std 64mm size that the tires come is way to large. Just remember to reset your droops and ride heights as you run larger tires.
