OH-and yes-they will be dykem'd red soon too.... Kind of missed them.

Default PK BK brackets

On the brackets, if anybody is wanting sets of the brackets please PM. me this week if possible. Next week I have to get several bodies painted for me and my hommies. I want to try and get all the orders filled for brackets before I start the paint. Later Gents!

I actually had a problem with the front ball cups popping off. Turned out when the front suspension was compressing all the way, the ball cup was hitting the top of the caster block and causing them to pop off. I would hit a wall very lightly and just the wrong way and the ball cup would pop off...drove me crazy for a while until I saw it was hitting.

I adjusted my up travel limiters to where the ballcups just miss the caster block, didn't have any problems.

For one of my earlier setups I just trimmed the upper part of the caster block to alleviate the problem. Believe that Todd H mentioned that fix.

Otherwise, I have also noted a lot of wear occurring in the hole where you have the upper bushing in the caster block. Much more so than what I ever experienced with my XXX-S cars. You might want to watch for that issue and replace the caster block whenever you deem appropriate.

Are you running that much travel in the front?

Todd told me to maintain as much travel as possible for stock motor class racing on asphalt.

Still waiting for pending advice on carpet setups...but there's plenty of time for that.

I havent payed attention to all of them, but BK's SoCal setup doesnt list how much up-travel to run so I didn't really know. Any advice on this one Steve?

Just last race I set my f/r uptravels to stop the chassis from hitting my setup board when pressed down. Figured it might save the chassis plate a bit. Didn't notice any difference in overall handling on asphalt; so, that's where it is staying for now.

The only real advice I remember reading for the up travel was to push the chassis flat and then pull up on the wheel. The recomendation was to have 1-2 mm of up travel under the tire. Thats pretty much what I have been running all year. Well, not all year just since I got my JRXS!! LOL ( that was for Darkseid )

I would recommend running as much uptravel as you can w/o traction rolling or suffering from over-rotation...

Randy, I guess I'll show you how we measure it so that when I give you a measurement you'll understand it
