Playing with the suspension on my Jrxs. I'm running stock rubber on carpet and I've got a set up that Mike Haynes posted (Thanks Mike!). What are the effects of moving to the #56 pistons and black bladders?

Thanks!

Your car will stick to the track better with the 56's...the 60/57 with the BK arm position will make it feel like your driving on a cloud. The blacks feel like a white with an oring above, but they let the shock go up futher without hitting th bladder, so you won't have to cut the shafts shorter.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the tips Mike! BTW, just learning some of the terminology here ... when you say 60/57, is this front/rear shock lengths? And the BK arm is that the new arms with the additional mounting locations?

Cheers!

Does anyone have the instructions for mounting the BK brakets that I could get, if they come with some. I only recieved a bag with the parts but no pics or instructions. Thanks

No real need for those anymore since the new arms are out with that mount already molded into them.
Ok, up to speed on the lingo.

Thanks again!

That's my winning combo!! I run a one way spool on a very high bite asphalt track. The suspension is pretty stiff (50 lb springs in the front 30 in the rear) but I get out of the corners like a rocket. My toe is at .5 in the front and 2 in the rear. I can get away with a lower ride height due to traction, maybe that's why it works so well for me.
Peace,

Well Tom, there you got. I thought it would be a really weird combo but mojo says otherwise. Sounds like a combo that may work up here on the asphalt since it is pretty high bite.

Anyone running a CO27 on rubber with the JRXS? If so, what pinion are you running compared to a Monster? BTW, I'm running the stock ratio with the 118 spur.

They say two to three teeth higher on pinion then a monster. I ran one once but don't remember what gear I used. I did not quit running because I did not like it, just not much stock racin goin on at my track this past summer and when I went to IIC it was a monster handout. Hopefully someone that is still running it will give you some insight.

I got a ?? for Todd or whoever wants to answer. Was there ever a real good carpet setup for this car w/ foam? I am talking box stock JRXS with only mod being the new arms. We are opening a carpet track here in UT and I never worried about a setup before since I ran nothing but rubber. When the new car comes out I will regulate this one to rubber only for I like it that way but want to try a foam setup till it comes out. Would be nice if it is a downloadable PDF or similiar so I can print it out. Thanks to anyone who replies.

Your running a Spool in the front, and the one-way pulley in the middle?
How does the car react under braking? I would like to try this too, but I was concerned the braking might be sketchy. Also, are running stock-19 turn- or mod? Later man.
