You using a fisheye lens on that camera??
haha.. perhaps because I took the photo so close.

My front wheels look like they have positive camber sometimes when it is on a car stand.... it freaks me out.. yet i put it on the board.. and it is always -1.

Keith, i used to do that same thing on my tc3...never got around to trying it on my jrxs yet, just might have to.

Any particular reason you didn't shave the arms and spin it around instead of drilling new holes?

never really gave it any thought. Wouldnt that alter the wheelbase?

Also.. would the droop screw still work?

im not near my car at the moment.. perhaps it would work... actually, youd have to run the arm upside down...and youd loose the BK hole anyway...no?


I just used old style arms i had from the kit..

Not flip sorry, i mean put the left on the right side.....

Yea if you dont shave it would alter wheelbase signifigantly and would mess with the uptravel limiters, but im not a fan of drilling more holes in a part that likes to break normally. You way definetly seems to make more sense

well, knock on wood.. i have yet to break a rear arm and of all of the spare arms I have had go through my hands, only 2 were on my car when they broke.. LOL.. most are friends who cannot get ahold of the BK arms.

If you drill it dead center, i dont think youll have any worries.

and ofcourse... just dont crash

Lots O posts today!!!!! Yippee!!!

Bill--The carpet Nats are too soon for the budget. I couldn't get any of my local guys excited about the Onraod Nats soooooo we are saving our money and making plans for Vegas. B-Main Motorsports will represent at the IIC !!!!

Any insider info will be sent to you guys on a "first pay-first know" basis !!!LMAO

Keith--After I read your" I will post after work" post, I though I would have to contact a ....uhem.....Buddy......in your area to pay you a visit!!! But , after you posted your mod I called him off....I mean ..uh....he was busy. LOL

That sounds cool and I will do it ASAP! I feel the same as you do on the wanting my front of the car to steer and pull the rear around. The roll center adjustments and camber mod on asphalt really made my car feel this way. I have not yet come close to the same feel on carpet. Will keep plugging away at it though. hehehe Now I know what you wanted the brackets for sneaky man!

Finally......I shudder to ask but will anyway.

Todd--Can you give us any idea on a release for the front motor car? I will even accept 2 WEEKS at this point! LMAO

Brant

I run the EA Motorsports c2 based 19 turn and it rocks!!!! This winter we have not run 19 turn on the carpet so I would suggest you post this same question in the EA Motorsports forum. Eric himself has run a JRXS this winter on carpet so he should have a very good idea for the rollout. Good Luck!

Is that your final question? And don't be sneaky by editing your post! You just asked about the front motor car, the one that's in your hands! Oh man, and to think I was gonna spill the beans!

Well here's a couple hints before I fall asleep .... I could show you a billion pictures of my car and you'd probably never figure out what's new on it. Furthermore, Hodge told me at Snowbirds as he handed me the ______ what was different about the _____. It wasn't until the following qualifier that I belived him. The car still rolled after impailing the "keywhole" section of track, so I was instantly impressed and drove ten times more confindently the rest of the week. </snooooooorrrrrrrrr>
