I ran a v7.1 in Memphis in mine and it worked just fine. Its a lil cramped and hangs off the edge a bit, but worked.

Hope this explains it properly.....
Thanks 2-Bad that does explain it properly

POOKYT,
Well, you have convinced me to run the spool, but there is one more item of concern. We run foam tires at our track, and I'm running 26mm on all fours. Will I be able to run your brackets or not? Thanks.

With 26mm you might be able to run the fronts. The rears will be no problem. I know 28 and 30 mm fronts are a No Go with the brackets. On the spool, I was not aware you are running foams so if you hate the spool just build the front diff with some of the old ( I mean old original JRX2) purple diff lube. I think the Trinity purple stuff is very close to the same. This diff lube is UBER thick and will be better than the stock stuff for the front diff. Don't give up on the spool if it feels weird at first. With a spool you drive that sucker into the corner hard and just let off enough for the car to set for the turn then pull the trigger to make it come off the corner like a bullet. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

This weekend we learned that the new molded arms that have the bk brackets do allow you to use a 28mm tire on the front of the JRXS

manage to qualify third this weekend and I didn't do well in the main, because of a bad pinion choice. The car is dialed, can't wait to run it again.

Nice avatar airbear87123, I wonder where you got it? btw, that is Valentino Rossi when he was still running for Repsol Honda thus # 46.

Anyway, what happened to BK? Wasn't he suppose to go to the IIC?

POOKYT,
Thanks for the advice. I will be sure to get those new molded arms as soon as they come out. I will be creating a spool some time soon and was wondering what you meant by how to drive the car through a corner. Since, your description matches how I drive normally. How are you supposed drive without a spool? Thanks again.

Hi guys

Do I really need the BK brackets to make the car work? It seems most people are using them does it make that much difference?
