i've noticed a fair bit of variance in weight between new and old m410's, too.

Just got a JP8 to try as I was having issues with rear grip with a Racer. How far forward for low/Medium traction ETS carpet?

I've been running the M410 since it first hit the market, partly due to my affinity for BMWs......and partly because I have liked the feel of it on high grip asphalt. BUT, now the time has come to find a few tenths and I'm considering the JP8 or JP8HR. Looking to those that have experience with both to get some feedback.

How much faster were you with your JP8 when you first switched from the M410? Did you have to make any chassis adjustments after making the change?

Thanks in advance

I'm running 17.5 blinky on a technical asphalt track (med - high grip). Similar to you, I used the m410 before and switched to the JP8 (LW) and the results were really good since the JP8 has more rotation which meant that i was able to drive more easily into the corners and use less of my breaks. The rear is stable as advertised and with that, i gained more consistency which led to getting faster laptimes and more laps in. I was able to bring down my fastest laptime by .4 secs and gain 2 more laps with the JP8, compared to the M410. The real deal for me is to be consistent on hitting those targets and laptimes again and again.

I mounted the JP8 8mm forward and use the thicker high rear wings (optional part). For my setting, switching to JP8 is definitely a plus. Waiting actually for the JP8HR to arrive in our shores to test it for the 2019 season.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for your advice....looks like I'll be investing in a new body real soon....most likely a new JP8HR.

on med grip CRC I picked up two tenths on my average when switching from the m410 to the jp8. They both weigh the same and mounted 5mm forward. On a higher grip CRC track I will often use the m410 as it feels a little better. They will make you slightly change your driving style which can be a good or a bad thing.

When we talk about the rear wing being 10mm back from the rear of the car what part of the wing are we talking about? When the JP8 is mounted neutral the rear of the wing is already way further back than 10mm

Thanks

We participated to a recent race here in Italy, the track was indoor with perfectly flat asphalt surface and the VENOM not flex, the key was the perfect ground. But when racing on carpet situation is different and the problem you noticed could be easily fixed; in other words what you described is this:



and we resolved it by removing one screw on the topdeck and replacing it with a body post (see following pics):



that we trim close to the body to eliminate the flex, this is the result:


It cost nothing doing this, when you switch to another body shell you remove the body post, when you mount our VENOM body you remount the body post on the topdeck. Hope this can help you and others who felt the same issue.
