Hey guys,

I need some bearing sizes really quick. Yes _ I searched for them already and my manuals at home!! I need the sizes of the outdrive bearings and layshaft bearings. No part numbers required. I am going to buy some ceramics and give-em a try!!

Ray

Also depending on the amount of arm travel you will also need to trim some material off of the bottom side of the ball cup or the top side of the carrier ('a' position) to keep them from making contact.

OK-I got the sizes!!!

The big ones are 1/2x3/4

The layshaft are 4x8, but are they flanged? Its been so long since I built the car-I dont remember.

Default JRXS

Anyone knows why the JRXS isn't so popular in Europe?
At the last Euros only one driver ran the JRXS (Hubert Honigl) and some previous JRXS drivers switched to RDX and other cars.
Any problem with the car?

I don't think it's a sponsorship problem, many racers started running the car in England and in Germany and then they switched.
I was told that they could,'t have the same laptimes as with a RDX or a FK05 with the JRXS in Euro kind of tracks.
Don't know whym the car looks very easy to tune.

I know, but it's not so popular anymore like in the past.

The TC3 was one of the most popular cars some years ago, the tc4 is not....

The vibe I get is that the car is great on smooth tracks but on our rough UK tracks its not so good.I haven't tried mine yet although its now track ready. Maybe the short arms make it skip the bumps
