I'd suggest Lunsford screws, super strong, and has the widest head and still flush with the bottom of the chassis.

i didn't know they made screws i will look into it??? but to tell you the truth the JRXS is on the light weight side compared to the rest of the bunch. Last year @ the Vegas race the car met minimum weight requirements with 3300mah batteries. the 3800mah secured the weight factor so it's not required to go lighter.

But yeah i will let him know if he is still willing to run TI screws.

Thanks for the TIP!

I run all ti and aluminum screws on my cars, reason being is because I can add the lead weight wherever I want it, and as low as I can get it.

I use the kit screws on the bottom (motor mounts, servo mounts, etc) and use ti and alum screws anywhere above the bottom chassis plate.

Hello all!

Been a few since I posted.

Just wanted to pass along the good news that my car was pretty dialed last weekend at the Canadian Indoor Champs In St Catherines Ontario- Canada.

I ran 19t and stock. I wanted to run mod as well but I only have one car currently and that would have been overwhelming.

In both classes my car was on rails. Stock I ended up blowing a TQ run in the 4th round BUT Tom Furshing was able to put his JRXS on the pole! I ended up qualifying 3rd and the cream of this JRXS oreo was Mark Frechette.. with his RDX. The main was less than desireable, as Mark got a nice lead after the first turn adn in the end, i got 2nd, and Tom got 3rd.. here is the printout=

http://home.cogeco.ca/~szekeres1/04-...ock_A_Main.htm

19T was the money class.. there were a ton of fast guys in this and if not for being DQed for ride height, I would have qualified 2nd. I ended up qualifying 4th and getting CORNHOLED in the first turn. Look at the lap times.. LMAO.. after lap 1 I was dead last. I faught up to 3rd with a car that was badly tweaked, and with a chunked tire only to get too agressive and then wait for 3rd to regain the position.

http://home.cogeco.ca/~szekeres1/04-...urn_A_Main.htm


Still running the same setup as posted on PG 351, with the exception of the JR link and 25lbs front spring..

Cheers~

Keith,
What 19t are you using? And what did you gear it at?

After this run last night, I came off the drivers stand laughing... 3'rd all the way up to the last couple laps. http://www.socalrc.com/raceresults/o...04-04-2006.txt

I used an EA Motorsports C2 and Monster.


Both motors are OLD.. My 19T was my motor from the Halloween classic, and the monster was actually my handout from Vegas..LMAO..

Com sizes were both right around 268-270... F Brushes.

Tire size was around 55.5mm- maybe 55.75mm. and gear for stock was 34/128 and in 19T 37/126
