Default Mike Haynes snowbirds 19t rubber tire setup

Mike, I want to give my thanks to you for that setup, I used it this weekend on out parking lot with just a few minor changes and had the best runs I've ever had with my car. Thanks again

Bob

Glad it was a good baseline for you, post up the changes when you get a chance for the other pavement guys so they can enjoy as well.

Well, for the first runs in practice, track temp was about 70F, I had put 25lb springs front and rear instead of the softer ones on the sheet, the car had a push exiting the corners, I put 30lb springs in the rear and helped greatly, entry was ok. First heat, it developed a little entry and mid corner push, I lowered the front dif for the 2nd heat. Track temp had dropped to 60ish. In the second heat, the rear started to step out a little, but the car was good other than that. For the main, the track temp was 45, sun was going down. I lowered the rear diff and cured the stepping out. I had a little front end chatter coming out of the tightest corner, may have to go to lighter shock oil in the cooler temps. I know all the setup sheets don't use the stiff springs, let alone the stiifer ones in back, but It worked good for me. I am not a great driver by no means but I did qualify 4th out of 9. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it
So bsically, the only changes I made to the original setup sheet was springs, diff height, oh yeah, I used the JR camber link. The car transitioned from left to right very quickly in the "bus stops"

I'm wondering what kind of setup guys are running on carpet w/ foams with the new arms? I've been running the Craig Xavier setup, and it's worked well. Are you running the same setup, just with softer springs?

And please don't tell me to go to the JRXS.com site. I've got a username, but I'm still being "Validated" since last month. I appreciate any help.

Go to the www.jrxs.com

LMAO Just kidding! Last year in the winter I was running the Keith B. set-up. I know its in here some where......I think it is either on page 350 or page 351. I tried the Craig X and it never felt comfortable. I then tried the Keith B and it was very good for my driving style. Good Luck

What could I change on my set up to get my car to stop breaking loose coming out of the turns when I get on the throttle. I know I didn't post my set up, but I was hoping you could give me some ideas like (lighter shock oil or softer rear springs). Thanks in advance for any help.

with stock motor, rubber, and asphalt, I lowered my rear diff and made a big improvement in stability on exit

You may also consider more rear toe in

Stand the rear shocks up one hole as well.

+1.

i was having some evil handling. my car was very loose when powering out of a corner. standing the rear shocks up one hole + a little more rear toe in got rid of it. as i was cannibalising parts off the car to build my type-r, i found the underlying cause... one of the rear bulkheads was litterally broken in half right between the bearing hole and the lower mounting holes and to think i was actually able to dial that out with setup.

LOL when I was taking the electrics out of my JRXS I found a few cracks on the bulkheads as well. Not broken yet but they were heading for it soon!

pretty much all the aluminum goodies on the new car + the ease of maintenance is reason enough to upgrade from the mid motor car.
