You can run the BK brackets on the back w/foams. I like them since I feel like the closer you can get the shock to the rear tire the better (generally).

You may notice from my signature that I use a P-Dub bumper on my JRX-S as well.............everyone should!

I have been hearing some rumors involving the worlds JRX-4 prototype, we'll see if they come true........, Jim

I would buy that car. I dont like the motor in the middle of the car like on the jrxs. The motor in the back would be a whole lot better I think.

Really?! Are you allowed to say which track, Kevin? I've been considering a 4wd buggy, and if my local track redoes the off-road track and tries to run some electric classes, I may have to get me a JRX-4 next spring.

Just hope they address a couple issues. I heard it takes 9 screws to remove the battery...

I dont see why it would take 9 screws to remove the battery, I would imagine that it would be very simliar to the jrxs with the tray and such.

Hey guys, I've been running my JRXS and I have been loving it. But unfortunately my track has decided to go to a rubber tire only rule. It's a low to medium bite track and has a smooth surface. If anyone has any setup ideas, I would love to hear from you. Thanks.

If you need grip allround and a setup that works, then look no further than Steve Weiss's (aka Evicerator or Skuba Steve)setup. You can find it here.

It's great for low bite tracks!!! But you might want to try Josh Numan's setup if you race on high bite tracks. Just my opinion.

Hope this helps mate.

Leonard.

Assuming you are talking outdoor asphalt...Wouldn't track temperature dictate what actual tire/insert/wheel combo you run?

Yes, Mr JRX-S Bill is correct indeed. Ask around at your local track and see what everyone else uses and go from there.

Actually, its indoor asphalt, and I believe a friend told me to run CS27's front and rear of the car. Can you run a harder rubber tire in the front, or should I stay with the same compound all the way around? Thanks again guys.
