Hello all,
 
I'm in need of some detailed pictures of the JK Horky JRL chassis. I have to build a couple and want to make certain all the parts fall where they are supposed to.
 
Thanks in advance!

I think I built one of these recently. It was from Mid-America JK HR 1/24 F1/Indy. Is this correct?

If so, when I get back home I will get some pics for you and fill you in on the steps i took. there are a couple of things that can create problems. The chassis does work pretty well but I only have one race on it so take it for what is it worth.

Anybody got a used one for sale?

 

Maybe after the 2014 NATs?

The one I made, none of the tabs fit in the slots. Have fun grinding those leeeeetle parts!

Does this chassis have rear steer?

When put together properly the center section will float laterally enough to provide some rear steer.

 

I thought I posted pictures of my build here but do not see them. Hmmmmm.................... Perhaps it was done on another forum?

I would call it front steer, not rear steer...  We're almost done completing Justin's HNR JRL for Nats.   We bought the assembled kit from shoppscr.com.  I think it was worth the extra $60 to not have to screw around with grinding the tabs off.  However, I wound up disassembling the chassis to flatten it and straighten a couple things that weren't "perfect"...  I still think it was worth not having to build it from scratch.

 

I'll try to post pictures when it's done.

I feel your pain Foam...What I did was, prior to breaking the tree apart I ground the plating off the area that goes down in the slots. 

 

Then with a small dental grinding diamond bit I opened up the slots and this worked quite well.
