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!

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.
