Right, my goal is between 4-5mm but starting out at 9mm doesn't help me much. Jeff- with 56mm tires and 4.5 ride height, have you moved preload or is it right at the top?

It is right near the top. You don't want preload as it makes the car bouncy in corners.

Got things fixed guys. I changed to Xray spring perches in the front and moved in the shock on the top and to #3 position on the bottom. This gives me 3mm ride height when the preload is all the way to the top. 2-3 revolutions and im right around 5mm for front ride height. Thanks to all that helped.

John

Yes you should buy the kit, and you dont have to worry about breaking much of anything if you buy the rubberneck bumper, but just in case, i believe a pack of 4 arms (same arm on all corners) is around $20

the car is absolutely amazing, it felt so good today in stock i loved it

the kits they have are most likely the ones with the oneway

The answer is yes you should. Buy one pack of arms and a few packs of steering knuckles-or buy the aluminum steering knuckles and a few extra 5x9 bearings-your choice.

Dude - Superior is your lhs and CorallyUSA is there. What gives? Get the RDX. I am from Jacksonville about 2 hours from you guys and I bought the car after the super regionals after seeing how it performs. I was very reluctant to get it since I don't have a "real" lhs with parts. I was waiting for the JRXS but after I found out it is a completly different car and not out yet, I got the RDX. You don't have to worry about parts since most are interchangable from the assassin. I have to order my parts or drive down since my lhs don't carry anything outside their distributor. The car is performing at all venues and winning. The snowbirds will also show how good the car is, but by then you'll really have a hard time getting the car.

I broke one arm and bought a package. Four came in a package all four arms are the same. What more can ask. Go to superior and ask the guys what people are breaking and check the prices.

Get the RDX.

Disclaimer: I am your average weekend racer, not a sponsored driver, not affilated with CorallyUSA, Corally, or Superior Hobbies. I've own mostly every LOSI cars from the jr-x2 buggy to the xxx-g+. I am sure the JRXS is a good car but from the street weapon to the xxx-g+ and now the JRXS. Three completly different cars and the older cars are now obsolete.

Again Just my opinion. Now its up to you to make up your mind LOL

Did I get the bearing size wrong? I hear if you run the alum steering knuckles-a hit that would normally break a plastic steering knuckle wont hurt the alum steering knuckles-but can damage the bearing. Just what I heard.

Jeff
Is there a small parts package that contains a variety of tork screw sizes, washers etc...for the RDX? Also, the set screws used for droop is the a tork screw in the lenght? I like the idea of one driver for all the screws in the car.
