i've got hold of some of them BK bracket thingys to try out, what difference do they acctually make?
do the shock lengths need to be any different with running them? i'm currantly running 63mm front and rear.

Luke, they seem to make a BIG difference. Since you can run softer springs with them the car is able to get a little more roll and more lateral traction on looser surfaces. Even though the bench feel is similar, the softer setup handles the weight better on the track. Imo, this is due to the majority of the mass being in the center. A car with the mass spread out more would like the heavier springs.

yes it is night and day difference with these TH/BK/PK and with out the TH/BK/PK brackets. It's a good thing BK made a set for his car for others to . It has made the care much more consistent and predictable vs with out them.

Thank you BK for the IDEA PK for supplying us and TH for revising the original design.

Problemo.....

Im running the Numan Setup with a few modifications (one way centre, 1mm front roll bar and diff). The car is awesome apart from one mega fast chicane, where the car rolls. It happens no where else and occurs pretty much every lap, if I slow down, it has to be VERY slow and really stunts my times!

Ahhhh!

JRXS-Chris, you may also want to try a lower front roll center then the numan set up uses. Try removing the two thin shims and reseting your droop, etc.

Ditto !!!! Also, to me using the center one-way would give the car more off power steering and that may be just enough too much going through your chicane. You also said you were running the Numan set-up.........are you using the brackets? I have not had any traction roll type problems with the JRXS but I did in the begining with my XXXS. When I lowered its front and rear roll center it helped the car from the traction roll. Somebody a few posts ago suggested lowering the roll center and I think this too will help. Using a high roll center will or should help keep the car flatter and reduce chassis roll but its also like a coiled spring in that once you reach the point that it cannot hold the chassis flat it will quickly dump and usually that results in the traction roll. Guys correct me if I'm wrong but this is what I think is true. Hope it helps with your car.
