See the jpg below, this is what I and many have done. This configuration works very well for all my car/buggy/truck.

The spur/pinion combination is limited by the size of your servo and/or if you run a servo-saver. With my Hitec servo and a Kimbrough medium servo-saver I'm limited to 128/40 before the motor rubs on the servo horn.

Ok, I need some advice. I ran my JRX-S yesterday for the first time since last season and the car was just no good. The car has loads of traction, but I could not get it to turn. Pushing like crazy. I am running the Neuman set up with the following changes: High roll center, rear link in the #5 position (middle hole), and 6 degree front caster blocks. I also tried both a front one-way and a diff with little or no difference. The one-way had slightly more off power steering. I am running 19T with cs-27 spec tires on high grip asphalt. Also running a Stratus 3.0 AP body. Needless to say, I could not carry any corner speed at all. Any advice on what to change to get it to turn? Thanks in advance.

I alos run the Numan setup but I use camber link #3 in the rear to help get the car to rotate and use 0 degree rear hubs and just the 1 degree rear toe block. For are track I also had to go to the 12. spring in the rear. Each one of these adjustments made the car better and turn more. I also went to .50 rearanti squat as well. In the front the only thing I have been messing with other than the 6 degree front caster blocks has been the I run a 2 degree front pivot block to sweep the front arms out more like they do on a few other brand cars to get more aggressive steering.

Might want to try a few of these and see if any help you out.

Thanks Wyd. I will give those changes a try.

One other thing that I wanted to try was a Protoform all purpose Stratus as well. Are track has massisve traction and sometimes the Mazda 6 is a little more than what we need. Some guys have had success at are track with the Stratus.

I have also seen several people use the Parma Alpha body on the asphalt when the traction is too high. Overall, it is a very neutral body. Many of our novice guys will run this body as at our track, it has been a good chioce,

128 / 48 is the most that can fit in the standard mount (motor srews run out of room to slide), you will need a smaller spur to gear higher.

128/56?!?! What kind of motor and what size tires? That's a ridiculously high rollout. I'm running 128/34 with CS27 premounts for a 1.14 rollout with an Atlas 19T... The motor comes off the track at about 155 degrees and I have gobs of top end with stump pulling punch out of the corners. I can't think of any situation where you'd want THAT high of a gear... That's insane...

I'm gearing it for a 540 Johnson motor.

Also do you need a spur gear adaptor to run the team losi 90t 48pitch spur gear?

That's a lot of heat your getting off your motor, why dont you use a Cool-Can-Fan top deck on your car, Ask Pookyt what his thoughts are about it
