Rodney,

You can count on Bill Jeric's input. If anybody knows the status it is Bill. As he stated all preorders/backorders are going to be filled. Bob and Bio both will have kits late next week.

I can help you out on set up. Get you a starting point. Drop me a line @ [email protected].. I am running modified Sunday and will have something for club level traction.

Well hell, lets get the UPS guy on here too then. We've been let down too many times and we need some assurances this time!

Originally e-mailed by a Horizon rep
The JRX-S are being packaged and should be ready to ship sometime next week. I know it's been a long wait for some of you and i just got this ETA so i wanted you to get it ASAP.
This is an e-mail that was sent to our local hobby shop on the 12th from their Horizon rep. Looks like similar info coming from a number of sources.

I actually ordered an x-ray way back in July but fortunatly that was the time they were having trouble shipping into the country and I read more about the JRX-S and switched my order after waiting two months for the x-ray without it showing up.

No doubt a guy named Bill Jeric who works at Horizon knows the truth. But how do I know this Bill Jeric is "The" Bill Jeric. I mean 2 posts on a forum does not fill me with confidence. I need to see some credentials! J/k

Bob's had my cell phone number for months ready to tell me when my JRXS is in. ...which reminds me...it's been so long I've changed my cell phone number. Bio said all his first 3 were spoken for. Sending e-mail...do you have a startup spare parts list handy?

Rodney,

As for spares..... I would get the usual f/r arms, caster blocks, f/r hubs, 20-25-50-60 lb springs, set of hinge pins, and a spur gear. This will get you started, but obviously you will always want and need more. I've got the emergency stash too.......

I have raced my car several times now and I have only broken a couple of front arms. Wannabee/Rubberneck Racing already has the bumper designed and perfected. Must have item as you already know.

Bill- Are you going to rccar this weekend? If so I will have the motors for you. I'm hoping that my brush and spring order comes in today. I thought that I had extras around here somewhere but I didn't. Your Br00d power will be refreshed. You might also go over to the Schumacher thread and see if PW is making a PDUB front bumper for the JRX-S. It will come in handy out at Speedworld and other tracks.

Get there as close to gates openning as you can ....the strawberry festival is this weekend, and all the cheap chiseling straberry festival attendees hog up that whole street so they don't have to pay for parking :0

...I'm not gonna be able to make it on Saturday after all, I'm out there practicing today though, gonna get there early to blow the track off and spray some root-beer (I gotta have the sticky stuff for a satisfying practice session )
