You can also run the 1/2 deg. hubs on the opposite sides with the 2 deg. rear pivot and end up with 1.5 deg. toe in on the rear.

Would it just be a waste of time if i put LCD's in the rear of my car? Also how do you tighten the diffs?

Thanks

Running LCD's in the rear will take traction away. I have tried them and have never liked them in the back.

To tighten the diffs. Just place a flathead screw driver into the screw head slot through the diff tube locking the screw in place. Now rotate the rear left tire towards you(clockwise).

Am I going to get beaten with a wet noodle now? I just picked up an Xray FK'05 for foam tires on carpet. Don't worry, I'm not a total traitor, the JRX-S is my dedicated asphalt car.

Use the Numan setup from Losi's webpage. That's pretty much the universal asphalt setup for the car.

http://www.teamlosi.com/pdfs/setups/JRXS/A3.pdf

There's a couple more that you could try also...

http://www.teamlosi.com/jrxs-page/asphalt%20index.htm

The Numan setup was working well for me on a low grip asphalt track last weekend. Track temps were very low and there was minimal traction to be had but my car was still pretty dialed even with the wrong tires.

Yes, use the Numan setup, it's my base setup for everywhere. I've made these small changes to it: 12.5lb instead of 10.5lb rear springs and depending on track grip I move from A-6 to B-6, to B-5 on the rear camber link for more rear grip.

Regards,
Peter

Can someone please confirm some part numbers for the Numan setup;

The pistons are #56 part number LOSA5046?
The white O-Rings - the only ones I can find are red shock cartridge rings LOSA5014?

and I noticed that he has the pistons marked as drilled - what does this mean?

Don't get too wound up on the white o-rings. The red ones are good too. When you see the pistons are "drilled", that means they took a #60 piston and drilled it with the #56 drill bit to have a #56 piston. Some like to do this as they will be assured as to the correct size of the hole. Again, I'm too lazy to do this so I simply run the # 56 pistons and am very happy. LOL I hope this helps you out man!
