ive owned my jrx2 since 1990. Image
Ibought it off a racer whod upgraded a few parts in his time, (JRX pro front tower and shocks HD steering and upgraded shock cartridges).
I bashed the heck out of this car for about 2-3 years and then it went into the garden shed after the nicad battery died and i couldnt afford another..
fast forward 25 years or so and i dragged it out of the box ans it was mostly in bits. luckily i managed to find just about everything to form the rebuild base...
a complete tear down and more simple green than i care to think about and she was ready for putting back together...

after some googling and ebaying i got a complete new screw kit and some msc parts for the rebuild... New shock cartridges and shock shafts as the originals were rusted beyond use, some fancy teflon shock pistons, new turnbuckles and RPM ballcups and of course some new spring clamps as only one had survived... in just a few hours she was looking better than i ever remembered her...

What do you need? I have more, but could be bothered dragging them all out.
