Craig-thanks. I looked at my set-up sheets and realized mine is above too-duh!!

As for the bump-for what its worth I run 0.06 on the drag link and a short ballstud and 0.090" on the steering knuckle with a short ballstud. Pre-Champs I took out all the shims on the steering knuckle and I picked up a ton of cut and in long corners car just kept steering. I put it back to raised 0.090" on knuckle. It was crazy steering.

ok guys... i have a legit question for a change.....

how can you increase onpower steering. Powering out of a turn and steering farily tight corners back to back. Will running more caster in the front help this?

Thank you in advance guys...

It really doesn't matter where you mount the bar,,up or down..the important thing is the angle between the ballstud on the rack and on the spindle..The higher the ball on the spindle in relation to the ball on the rack,,the more bump out you will have,,typically this will make the car get in to the corner harder,,"but not always"..On this car i like a lot of bump out..

Hey guys, new jrxs owner here....

Anyone have recommendations for identifying Losi springs that have had the tags removed? Is there a chart that would outline the different weights by dia of the coils?

Any advice is appreciated...

If you're trying to get it at SoCal, use the JR link on the front end, it felt like it had a lot more on-power steering to me. To get the initial turn in back into the car, try .030 of anti-dive.
