New clear tubing is provided with the LCD re-build kit and is thinner. You can also go down to your local electronics store and purchase tubing. More than likely, it will be thinner material than what was originally provided in the kits.
Thanks Tony,

I'll give that a try.

I'm kind interesting on new rear motor JRXS, but before I jump on the boat I like to know a bit more.

Someone (sorry I forgot who) said JRXS driving is very different with traditional belt. So how different it's? Is the chassis roll more/less in corner? pitch faster/slower? I think the inline weight placement make it roll more/faster but pitch less/slower, any comment on this?

Also, I read some PRO3 thread and said PRO3 is very good for low traction track. How about JRXS? Better for low traction or high traction? How about corner? Is the car better for track with lots corner or few corner?

Sorry if my question sound stupid. Doesn't wanna make my point wrong without hear first hand experience first.

I'm not sure if you are asking about the JRXS in general or the difference between the standard car and rear motor car,,,But ill say this, this car generates more bite than you could ever imagine.I love it..For example on my xxxs at socal,,depending on the body i ran it would really effect the cars straight line driveability,,with the jrxs i can run any body,, get all the affects of it and the car is still easy to drive..As far as chassis roll,,it all depends on shock setup..

Yes, compare with nowday's belt design (aka 415 way), JRXS inline layout generally generate more mechanic grip? So if it's safe to say JRXS is very good car for low-grip, lots lowspeed corner, indoor asphalt track?

Any need for different driving characteristic to ride the JRXS?

If any of you get bored This is my SoCal setup..On the droop and uptravel settings...10mm droop,,means when the chassis is 10mm off the ground,,the tires just touch...3mm uptravel means when the chassis is bottomed out,,you can still pull the tire up 3mm
  • TTSO,,,YES,,And no ,,,it's just easier to drive

Whats the change in steering feel when going from the drag link below the steering levers to above? I also notice quite a bit of shimming to adjust bump. Would Dirt or Xavier wish to elaborate?

Thanks,
Ray

The kit setup is to have the plate above the bellcranks, studs pointing down. I have never used it below(studs pointing up) but the reasoning behind all the bump steer washers under the steering knuckle stud was for more bump-out. Which I feel, gives the car more initial steering.
