What to build; JRX-Pro or JRX2-Proformance?

Post by Commercentre »

This is a real first world problem, I know :lol:

I'm after some direction for my JRX build. A while back, I purchased an Ebay JRX Pro with the idea of restoring it to run at this year's Vintage Festival. After receiving the car, I noticed a lot of the Pro parts were missing and it was sporting a lot of JRX2 bits. I immediately lost interest in the car as I didn't want to restore a bit-sa and sourcing all the missing parts (in Australia) was going to be a headache. Fast forward a little and I now realise what I have is a 100% complete and correct JRX2 Proformance car.

Unfortunately, my Proformance body with the shock cutout in front of the tower is completely trashed and I've had to buy a TBG Pro body with the cut lines for the rear shocks. What would you do? Rear mount the shocks using the tower spacer and make it more of a Pro car, or front mount the shocks and stay true to the Proformance kit?

I've been holding my lexan scissors for hours now not knowing what to do.

Help me, please!

I say front mount the shocks.... being built from the Performance upgrade kit makes your car quite unusual - keep it as per the original 'upgraded' spec :wink:

Front mount. They were always front mount.
I miss brushed motors in that hazy, everything seemed better when I was a kid, kind of way.
