No you won't need them as soon as the new arms come out. I don't know how it would work putting the shocks on the arm the way they normally would be with that soft of a spring. I don't think it would handle very well. The new arms look good and Todd said hopefully they are just around the corner. That is what he told me at IIC this past weekend.

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.
Usually with a diff on Asphalt the car ( my car at least! LOL) has to be driven a little more smoothly or flowingly(sp?). If you go in too hard or try to come out too hard and quick the diff car will have that moment of wash out or wander or drift feeling. With the spool its just POINT CLICK and SHOOT!! The difference is more evident on tight degree turns. A spool comes off of a corner like a one-way will. BTW--While I'm on the spool, I have always run the 41 tooth pulley as well. This will help eliminate any push the spool may give you. Good Luck.

Ray, I just wanted to thank you again for Paul "Full Fisherman" C.'s setup. I have made a few adjustments to it, but it a great starting setup.

If any one needs a foam carpet setup try Paul's. I'll post up the link.

Where can i get a set of these BK brackets...and do i need them on all four arms? Also could someone explain to me how to use the upstops.. Hodge told me a while back but i never got the car and forgot how to set them properly?

Also.. what size foam tires fit the jrxs? do 28mm all around fit fine?

what diff lube do you guys/gals recommend for losi diffs.. i was on my xxxs using the losi brown stuff diff lube..and for a while some xray and AE stuff.. found the losi brown to work the best.. any suggestions?

one more question, these are Bladder shocks, correct? if so are there different stiffness bladders that you can buy or do i have to use o-rings?

thanks for your time,

lzyboy
