JRX-S kits have arrived into Finland (Europe) too. Shipment arrived on Wednesday to our importer and I just picked up my kit couple hours ago from local cargo terminal. Due yesterdays national holiday shipping from another city took 2 days instead of normal 1 day. You can guess that yesterday was quite painful waiting for me while knowing that kit would already be here without this holiday.

RC Sabe has kits and good amount of parts in stock and will ship anywhere in Finland. Maybe into other Scandinavian countries too if needed.

Todd and/or Ray...

As far as I can tell, the inner hinge pin mounts aren't twisting when I tighten them.. with the locating pins, they really only want to go in one position.

Ray, when you mentioned holding the arm while tightening the screws for the mount, I am assuming you meant that you're hoilding the arm as if you're trying to sweep it forawrd as you tighten the screws (the right rear arm, for the left I'd hold it as if I was trying to sweep it rearward)

If you meant something else, could you please clarify for me?

This rear toe issue is kinda messing up my head at the moment... sorry if I seem to be harping on it, I just want to have the car as "right" as I can get it.


I picked up a set of 1/2 degree rear hubs at the shop, they're XXX-S hubs, can anyone confirm if they fit the JRXS before I open the bag?

Also while I am at it, can anyone confirm that the back of the chassis can be used as a reference to set rear toe, for example, if I stand the car up vertically on the rear of the chassis can I measure rear toe with a camber gauge, or is the rear edge of the chassis not truly perpendicular to the centerline of the car?

Thanks in advance

Another question...

In looking at the setup sheet in the manual, the shock tower positions "high" and "low" appear. From what I can see, the shock towers on my car only go on one way... How would I change the tower position? Does this require different bulkheads or towers?

Thanks again.

You will only mount the tower with 1 screw on each side instead of two for the "high" position.

Thanks Tony...

Not that I'm looking to sound dumb here, but I guess I need to ask then, is the stock position shown in the manual the "low" position, or would mounting the tower down lower with one screw on each side be considered the "low" position...

The low position has 4 screws. You can not mount it any lower than that.

For all you foam tire racers, here's a rollout chart I made up quick today. Its an MS Excel file. Assumes 128 tooth spur and stock 1.83:1 internal ratio. After I finished I realized I could have made it a little more flexible (able to change spur and IR). Maybe I'll do it some other time. Have fun racing this weekend!

What are some of the option parts currently available that you guys recommend?

I can't find any part numbers for anything. I am really interested in additional spring rates. If you have any part numbers for things, please let us know.

Thanks
