Thank You Sir! Yes on my birthday flags will Fly! And there will be a Parade downtown! You are all invited! No RSVP just hang out by the curb and I will toss you some candy as we parade by.

Now Bill! You get over in Matt or Todd's pitts and get me a set of those new arms for my B-day! LOL

Default JRXS SHOCKS

Has anybody swapped out there stock JRXS shocks and is willing to sell them.

The JRXS shock kit is not out and they are way too expensive to piece together.


Thanks,
E

Maybe I can hit that and a few other small events. I don't run enough onroad to do the snowbirds and stuff like that. Plus, ive only got so much vacation time and funding lol. We have pretty much only been doing dirt oval around here. Did some nitro and electric sprint but im ready to get back to sedan and maybe some offroad. The stuff is just setting.

Hey Guys, I need help! I race on extremely high-bite carpet.The rear end of my JRXS snaps around, loose doesn't begin to describe it! The front end has 35 rate springs, 40w oil,the shock is mounted in the #3 on the shock tower. The droop is set at 3. I've tried 4 and 6 degree caster blocks.I'm also running a one way.The camber is set at 2 degrees.
The rear end has 20 rate springs, 40w oil,the shock is mounted in hole #2 on the shock tower and the outer hole on the arm.I've tried Droop setting of 3 and 2.I've tried camber settings of 2 and 3 degrees.The rear camber rods are mounted in the #4 hole on the shock tower.
I use CS-27 tires, I've tried two different sets.I'm thinking this isn't an adjustment issue but maybe something is tweaked or broken? Any help would be appreciated.

I would try a front diff before anything else. Especially if your car is loose under braking or under power coming out of turns, where a one way is best for added steering. The problem is carpet is very aggressive, so a one way will almost always be too much on carpet...............Jim

From your setup... i would do this...
5mm ride height
4 droop front and rear
15lb sprign front 35wt oil
20lb spring rear 50wt oil
try no preload on the spring at first and slowly work your way stiffer on the rear. the front you can have a 1.5mm preload distance from bottom of shock cap to top of the rotating cup.
run the diff in a high position 2 deg block use the Stand up the shocks to like the #2 position. use the outer most hole on the lower shock setting.
Run -1 deg camber front and rear 0 toe in the front.

The tighter the diff gets in the rear the more the car will push with the one way. the looser it gest the more the rear end kicks out.

thats my 2cents....

What shims are you running on the front and rear for roll centers?

If you like a one-way I would try raising the front roll center and the rear. Raising the front will take away steering and raising the rear will help lock it in.
