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.

Maybe after the 2014 NATs?

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.

Says on pg 87 "May use the following chassis: Red fox, FX 78, H&R, Mack F1,".  That chassis is commonly referred to as an H&R.

The only JRL chassis on the 2020 Scale Division Approved Components list is Red Fox GRF2K20B and GRF2K20K.

My guess is that page 87 was not updated to match the 2020 parts list......

I looked for one last year and they are no longer available from JK.    have to hand cut replacement pan hangers for one of my JK/HnR.   

We still use them in our Chicago 'Midwest Flat track Series' along with a few others.  Have not seen a Red Fox version yet.....?

What happened was that there hasn't been a New JRL chassis submitted in a long time and we have a Part# on this New one and so we made a JRL list and the other names will be added and everything that was legal in Chassis land for JRL last year can still be used this year along with the New RF

Our chassis is most certainly legal according to Jon Madtes, the Scale Technical Director. There was a problem with updating the rule book but it should be fixed quickly. They are in stock. https://www.jkproduc...y=c91&results=1

A question was asked.  I give the guy credit for not starting another thread, he went & searched to try to find the answer before posting.

I think if you read Jason's post - it is legal.
