There are a few people still running the car in UK. What surface are you running on I've got a couple of pretty decent set ups for Rubber on carpet and minipins on polished floor.

Do have to admit though its not been the easiest car to car going well. Think that the set ups dont work as well over here as the grip levels both indoors and out are soooooooo different here compared to the States.

Shoot me a Private message with your Email and ill send you some setups, we have just 3 on my track but we all have tried different setups, some prefer different than other due to driving style, but for the most part my track is outdoor, with very low grip, but are setups work very well considering the conditions we have! and most of the time if you find a good setup at my tack they will work everywhere else in france, so sometimes its a bonus.

Hi there, i'm from the UK and I run a JRX-s (i know its rare!!) However if you start with the josh Numan set up you can adjust it with slight and small changes to almost any surface over here, if you are running on polished floors though make sure you have no toe in on the rear end and the car will stay stable at speed and braking. For carpet with rubber i'm regular in the top 5 at my club (i race 27 turn everyone else uses 19t) do every thing Josh says apart from the shocks, keep the standard kit springs and 45 wt oil in the front and 35 wt in the rear and you car will be much faster in the corners that you don't need to have the extra speed down the straight!

Hope this helps!!! However if anyone has any good ideas please let me know!!! there is always time for kicking xray butt!

Did you find that running the Numan setup with the stiffer oil and springs keeps the car driving flatter in the corners.

WYD, I heard a rumor that you have been considering running a JRXS. If this is true, let me know if you need any tips or anything

Is this a general setup or for a particular track?

Its a good starting point, I've tried it at two tracks, Ipswich and Southend, both of which are technical twisty tarmac tracks.

Oh, and the motor is at the front!

Default Rubber tire set up for carpet

Went to Team Losi site and only one set up from 1 1/2 years ago, can someone post a good rubber tire/carpet set up or post a link to one. Gonna go up to Trackside for the stock rubber tire national at the end of April and I normally run foams, so looking for somewhere to start.

Thanks....

Jamin (or anyone),
what effect does putting the rear shock tower on the front give you?
