We have not made them yet.

A first on a JRXS? Made a, well not really a tensioner, more a 'lift limiter'. Keeps the rear belt from skipping on the drive pulley, while allowing me to run the belt really loose. Haven't tried it on the track yet. We'll see how it holds up this Sunday.

Ray,
Thanks for the hooking me up with the Paul Ciccarello's setup. It's dialed. I pretty much ran the setup the same as yours. Thanks again.

I'll repost the setup. Paul Ciccarello's setup

I must say, if your looking for a good starting carpet setup, try this one. One thing I will add, if the rear end is a lttle loose, try running a thinner sway bar.

Todd,
Any chance that the new chassis design will allow more access to the motor?

1/ Installing the Muchmore motor cooler without removing the motor from the car?

2/ Installing cooling fans on the motor?

Thanks,
Peter

NO problem. I am glad I could help. 20lb spring into 2nd hole is a bit tamer than 25#lb spring laid into third hole as well.

Hi All

I tried running Paul Lemieux's carpet setup and had trouble getting the front shocks from touching the outdrives. He was using the #1 on the front shock mount and I tried a thocker spacer on the shock mount with no luck.

Whats the secret of using position #1?

Thanks

Rinkrat....you need to space out the top and the bottom. I think the top is spaced out .090 and the bottom is spaced out .060 to clear the outdrive.

Hey 2-bad
Why dont you take a look at the cool-can-fan website with regards to your plight with the fan situation. We have Integrated JRX-S CCF Top Deck so there is no need to worry about the fan senario, great prices for you guys in the US.

Hey guys, I ran the Lemeux set-up for asphalt, and the car pushed really bad. Is there anything I could have overlooked when I changed the set-up?

Peter: You can actually still use the MM Motor Cooler with a little modification. you need to cut a portion of the clips so the motor (while installed in the chassis) will just rest on it. You also need to install 4 "pegs" on the fan to give it some space to clear the table and give it some air gap.

Here's what I did with my motor cooling fans, I bought a couple of Much More Cooling Fans and some .030 Lexan from Parma, some nice FRP plate (for spacers) but if you have a bigger budget and want a neater looking setup, you can always get the cooling fans with CF topdeck from www.coolcanfan.com

Hi Fatboy Joe,

Just wondering if you could put up some pics of how this is done? As I too am sick of having to take the motor out to use the MM motor cooler.

Thanks,
Leonard.

Hack it to nothing to make the GP3700's fit. Its what i did to mine and it works fine with 3800, 3600, 3300. So I am sure 3700 will be just fine. I have an unmolested tray for 3300 and 3600's but I never use it. Just my dremeled one!!

NO WORRIES Mate.

Ray
