I am not running it as I want to try to run what the whole team is running on the car,, the 6 heads is better than 1 theory.. didnt work too good in vegas LMAO I am also running the new diffs which allow the car to transition better everywhere. It is not going to be an option on the new car.. and nor will it be necessary.

I did find that Smykas setup suited me well... car felt good. Hopefully, we (the guys running the FMC) will have somthing for everyone to try after the classic this comming weekend.

Default Mikes rubber setup

Hello, I practiced today using Mikes rubber setup that he posted a few pages back. My car was fast and drove good with the setup I had,but Mikes setup also drove good and I was getting better lap times than I had been getting. I will stick with this setup and tune from here. Thanks

Hey Mike, Once again thanks for the great set-up. ( Tried Mike's indoor carpet foam set-up ) The car felt awesome in the main. I think if I had more motor, i would have caught up to the 2nd place car. Oh well..........

................ Good luck at the Halloween Classic.

Alex, Yea it definetly looked good on the track, i think the changes we talked about after the race and the cyans would make it just like Matt's and mine. Ours were both great also.

Where can I find setups you guys are talking about?

I just got a JRXS and ran it for the first time last week. Overall I did pretty well using a setup Todd Hodge sent me. However it seemed to push a little in the corners.

I'd like to try out another setup or 2 just to have comparisons. The track I run at is indoor carpet. (ozite I think)

This is what myself and the other guys running a jrxs at South Shore used this past weekend. It worked well on high traction.

Thanks for the setup.
I'll definitely try it this weekend.

Since I'm relatively new to this type of racing, I don't know too much about the tires available. You have Cyan and Magenta tires on the setup, but I can't find a match for Jaco tires.

Which brand are you using?

I don't use the uptravel set screws...i set my droop as uptravel from ride height. Say my car is at 5mm, and i was droop/uptravel of 2mm...i set it so the wheel lifts off the pitboard at 7mm ride height.

This is just the way i was taught and it works for me.
