Speaking of balance...

All but one of the pics I've seen so far have been with the car running personal transponders, so where will the best place be for the regular transponder. I'm thinking the only real option is between the front body post. The one pic I saw had it in a lexan 'box' atop the upper deck.

Seems like that would be waaay too high for something that heavy.

Just a thought....to keep the thread off the third page again...

in the back?

I think most racers would want it more in front... if you're running a very close race..who would win... the car with the transponder in front or the car with the transponder in the rear...?

Well if its a good track, they'll have someone at the line to spot for occasions like that. The idea is to have the proper winner and get the result right, not see who has the best transponder placement.

Of course, we can always just depend on the racers to tell the truth... ...okay... Couldn't hold the laugh in...

I'm usually not a fan of having the transponder in the body, but that is an option.

what u could do is get a piece os lexan and put the lexan on top of the servo then have the lexan extend out to the right side of the car and have a hole and put the transponder through the hole then put your body clip through. Thats what i did with the XXX-S and had it come back behind the servo so its sitting low as possible.

.....kinda like most of the TC3/4 transponder mounts. There are aluminum servo mounts that hold the transponder. I'm sure they're surface for the JRXS once the aftermarket gets a hold of the car.

On another note, I wonder if the personal transponder will fit on the chassis in between the front swaybar ball-ends? Looks to be a bit tight, but that would be ideal placement.

Does anyone know how the car looks at the NOVAK race? I heard MF won a heat with it, after battling with Paul L's Pro-4. Any of you guys at that race right now?????

I allways mount the transponder in the foam bumper, when i oval raced. It just seem smart to me becuase that is the best place for it, plus i looked at everyones car that i was in comp with, they would have it mid to rear on the car. I allways thought that was not a smart place to put it. But some use the Transponder as ballast. So i can see why they would mount it where they did. But I think the front is the best place.

JRXS NOVAK UPDATE:.....Matt Francis is qualified somewhere around 5th or 6th at the NOVAK race. He put down the second fastest lap.

Tag: They open around 11am, sometimes a bit earlier, sometimes not.

I believe Matt is now qualified in seventh place at the Novak race.

We sure did miss him at the NorCal Carpet Championships in Stockton today.
