Well done Ben, sorry was only looking at the finals and did not realise you done a 17 I was talking with to Nathan Parker, he holds the lap record there with a 17 in 12 with a XXX-S but is his Local track to-boot
I will try your set up if I get time before Friday as ive bought Keith (the bald eagle) JRX-S off him and am re-building it.
What length do you make your shocks? and what does the 2 white O rings give you at the top of the shock bladder. When building your shocks do you have the shaft push out of the body on its own, or do you push the shaft in with NO rebound? (hope this makes sense Ben)

Bald Eagle!? LMFAO!!

I am not sure about my shock length, I'll have to check and let u know.

The 2 o-rings help the shock to rebound quicker, which answers the last question, I always make sure the shaft rebounds all the way back out.

Thought you might like that one funny he (The Bald Eagle) should sell his JRX-S to me and go for the Corally as my time with a 19t was 3 seconds quicker than Keith and Dave and they were running modified then he is 52 years young and im 3 years younger

When you say 'I always make sure the shaft rebounds all the way back out' is that after you build them on the bench, in other words you depress them by hand and they come all the way back out?
Cheers again Malc THE CAN MAN

Default Building diff with brown grease

When building the front diff on the JRXS with the LOSI brown grease do you use the brown grease on the thrust balls and the diff balls?

This is how i have the front of my car set up right now. I had tried the JR link before with a stock tower, and i felt it made the car "screw" itself into the corners, and was just too long. With the shorter setup pictured, my car feels much more consitent then with the standard ballcups setup.

Note- the outer 3 shock positions are stock, the extra inside hole is just to try out, and you can still see one of the body mount holes i forgot to fill in. My shocks are in the regular inner mounting location, with the BK arms of course.

Hmmm... weird.

When I went to the JR link again, I felt it made my car push like a bus. The car was more consistant but lacked the precision it had without it. I dropped the front spring from 30 to 25 and the car was as agressive as needed, but more consistant.

I am running the middle hole on the new tower (which I am 99% sure is the same as the inner hole on the old one) The camber link is low and long... (LOL couldnt resist)

No, what they mean is that KB has been running the rear shock tower mounted to the inside of the bulkheads. He drilled a new holle for the BK bracket on the front side of the arm and now runs his shocks on the front side of the rear arm.

From here on out I proclaim we call it the KB Shock Mod!
