Quick question. On the Numan setup. For the front suspension is it .050" shims on just the front pivot or both the front & the rear pivot blocks.

The Numan should be 2 050 shims total of .100 under each front block. Zero shims and the blocks flipped upside down for the lowest roll center on the rear. I hope this is what your looking for.

I finally got my alu big battery tray. Now I'm paranoid that it will short out my batteries. Is this a real problem and is there anything I should do as a precaution?

As long as there is no breakage in the shrink wrap exposing the bare cell to the tray, you'll have no problems.

Default Front Arms

Guys,
I know the front arms are labelled left and right, but if you turn the left arm upsidedown is it the same as a right? and can it be placed on the right side that way? Or do I have to buy a set just to get the right arm.

Thanks

The tray has an anodized finish so you should never have problems with shorting out unless you wear through the anodizing.

Have either of you guys tried different bodies back to back to see how they affected lap times, etc.?

Just a note here on the Numan set-up. When I used the camber mod with the Numan set-up I had to change to 1 .050 front shim and use one of the thin shims under the rear blocks. The camber mod gave a lot of total steering and the change in roll center made my car the best it has ever handled all year. Thought you should know.

No the arms are differnet. The front lower part of the arm is "filed" out to allow clearance at full throw.

Well I finally got a chance to run my jrxs last night after looking at it for 3 weeks, LOL. There was only a stock class so I had to go buy a stock motor but I ended up beating the track record by 6 seconds and taking home the win. So far so good.
