Thanks.
You would have to use the offset hubs if your needing the offset position on the arms or as you have found now you can't get things to work right.

Default metric/standard problem

Hi guys, had picked up a Jrx-s sometime ago but have a problem that they cant fit the hudy setup system since the hudys are metric. Dont really want to ream the setup gauges since i use them for other cars. Are there any conversions of somesort out there?

Yeah, I have the same problem with that site.

Even when you are registered it is still buggy as heck. For instance, you will run into problems viewing setup info on there until you are "approved". I'm not sure what that process entails since no one ever got back to me about it.

It's a great info site though. Too bad the forum stuff is so glitchy.

The forum can be a bit strange at times, but there is some good info there as well.

It is easier to find since you wont have to look back 500 pages, lol...im sure there is more info here tho.

I was just on the jrxs site and came accross the JR arm and moving the rear shocks to the front of the arm, is there any benefit to either or just expirimentations? Thanks

the JR. camber mod for me gave the car a more overall feeling of steering in, through, and out of the turns. It will help to keep the front end flatter during cornering. Plus, after I built mine I, I never broke it or had it pop off.
As for the rear shocks in front of the rear arms, this will make the car react quicker. Keith B. came up with this mod at the Birds last year. Try it and you will either love it or hate it. Always try it though. Good Luck.

How are you guys setting your droop on your car.

I think I may be setting mine wrong.

Also, after being in perfect balance most of the day, my car got tweaked after a minor collision. So much so that I have swings of 2-3 mm on ride height between the 4 corners after adjusting the shock nuts to remove the tweak.

Now I am going to disassemble the car to perhaps alleviate a chassis tweak. Should I just remove the upper chassis plates and reassemble it on a flat surface?

Dan--Do just that and really check everything well. Usually when the JRXS has any tweak problems then something is bent or broken. One other thing to look at is the holes in the front of the chassis around where the hinge pin blocks are mounted. I have cracked one and I know a few more guys who have cracked their chassis around this point. Good Luck and let us know what you find out.

When you put it all back together, assemble the center bulkheads and the 2 upper plates together first, then have the plastic bulkheads just loose enough to wiggle (attatched to the main chassis)..and screw the entire center assmbly in. Then tighten the scews under the chassis, and last put on the shock towers.

That method seemes to work the best for me.
