Paul - on your second set-up you moved the bell crank plate below the steering levers. Why and how does this effect the feel of the car? Also, when would you suggest set-up 1 versus set-up 2?

Thanks!

Bink-thats a typo-he runs the drag link above with ballstuds pointing down.

OH-CRap-I just looked at the Craig set-up sheet to make some notes and realized I ran flat pins in back, not 0.050" pro-squat. That will take away some initial and add mid and on-power steering. Bummer-oh well, theres always the next practice night.....

I orginally typoed the secind setup but it is updated and the bell crank plate is above the balls with the balls facing down.

The first setup is better for higher grip. That setup will push more initially but have more on power steering. The second setup seems to work for both high and low traction.

Easier to drive in mod than 19t and seemed like it had plenty of steering. And-I was running 2.14 tires. A fresh set of 2.20" and I am thinking how awesome it would be.

What setup were you running Ray?

Glad to see the setup is working for you. Every change I made to my car at Cleveland was to try and gain more initial steering. Like you felt, seems like the changes did their job.

I have a few questions:

1. Where do you guys get the 2 degree rear hubs and negative rear toe blocks? Alot of the on-line setups, the Team guys are using a zero or -1 degree rear block with a 2 degree hub.

2. Because the JRX-S one-way front diff is on back order (2 weeks) I purchased all of the parts to build a complete one. Where do the o-rings go as listed in this Picture?

I think the 2 smaller ones go in the one-way Plastic Outdrives but not sure where the single larger one goes? Does it go on the opposite side of the pulley (in the groove) next to the bearing?

Any and all info with part number or links would be great.

For motor help click on my signature line for EA Motorsports. He is the man!

As for the "BK Bones" or bearings pressed on the pins you need the small steering bearings from the XX,XXX,XXT,XXXT vehicles. Once you have these bearings you need to take a Dremel( hold your applause people! ) with a light grinding stone and run this around each pin to reduce their size just a tad so the bearings can be pressed on. The LCD's need more taken off for the bearings to fit but the CVD's will only need a little. My opinion is that if you run a spool then I would NOT use the BK Bones on the LCD's. With a spool the front drive train takes a lot of abuse and the bearings won't hold up. If your front drive is a diff or one-way then you will be fine. I have run the BK bones on my rear CVD's all season with no trouble. I hope this answers your questions. Good Luck!

P.S. once the bearings are pressed on the pins you should make sure they are close to the dog bone but not in a bind. WARNING!!!!! These little bearings don't like to be pressed very hard or tapped on very much! I know first hand! LOL

Check JRXS.com to see pics of what the bearings look like on the dog bones. I believe the very first pic we got a look at of the LCD's were a set out of MF's car and they had the bearings on them.

Is there a difference of using the bearings or using the smaller slot on the out drives? I have the bearings laying around but my car has little play with the smaller slot.
