Yes I agree that one-ways can be a lot quicker if your drive on your own.

If the track you running on has a couple of hairpin turns or at least very tight turns then I would imagine the spool would be better during a race, because you can defend your corner and/or attack it with the braking & exit acceleration advantage of the spool. The one-way can be a distinct advantage "if know one is pressuring you from behind" as you would need to sweep a lot of these types of corners.

a one way was always faster on my TC3 when i ran it over a diff on rubber carpet...i never ran a spool on the TC3 so i cant compare it too that

on the JRXS i run the spool and imgonna try the one-way soon to see the difference in lap times with adjustments

Hey guys, just need some quick advise. Ive put a full numan setup on my car and took it for a drive. It either had way too much steering and the back end was all over the place or there was no grip in the rear. I tryed with some sorex 36s on the front and rp30s on the rear and I had not much steering at all. I then tryed the rp30s on the front and yokomo 138gs on the rear which was only slightly better than the rps all round. Im racing on a short tight high grip track, running a 12t motor. Any suggestions anyone???

For asphalt, I always have used the same rubber on front and back on my JRX-S.

Usually is:
Cold...CS22 or Sorex24
Cool...RP30
Warm...CS27 or Sorex28
Warmer...T32
Hot...Sorex 36

For Carpet: CS27 (front)/CS22 (rear) or Sorex28/Sorex24

How much droop in the rear?

Unfortunately I didnt TQ last night, and with Numan and Weiss in front of me, the 1 way was definately the way to go. With a 1 way or a spool, once you get in the lead you just have to use the same lines you would as if you were driving on your own, it can be harder under pressure, but it will be nearly impossible to get a clean pass in from the guy behind you.

my car pushed going in and the rear eand came around rather quickly upon acceleration...i was running CS27 tires on carpet with the Numan setup....to calm the backend down i lengthened the camber links on the rear to the longest and flatest possible setting and gained .3 a lap...i think the car like the rear end planted like my 'Cuda R2 did

For the first time since I bought my JRX-S in May 05, I've finally got this car working. I raced in the South Australian Titles here in "down under" on the weekend just passed. JRX-S took out 4th, 7th and 9th in Modified Touring Car A-Mains in a field of predominantly fully sponsored drivers (none of which raced Losi). JRX-S was most strongly represented in Mod TC of any manufacturer.

Glad to hear that you got your car working. I also race in Australia (Brisbane, QLD) and besides my car there is only one other JRXS at the moment.......but it looks like we might have a few more now, time will only tell.
