Thanks, I thought about that myself. I just hate the thought of getting CA too close to rotating/rolling parts. I will give that try and be extra careful. I was just going to use the set of yellow rims for transporting the car and hope I didn't lose them. I like white rims and keeping my bubble gum, pink tires in bags between race days.

the ca really never comes close to anything that would cause a bind up. even if it did the first time you spun the wheels it would break loose. just a dab on the pin works for me also unless you change the pins out to the nitro tc3 roll pins which are thicker but wont work on the durango wheels.

Will there be any of you guys running at the jconcept race in st louis next weekend? I have some parts but no hubs or wheels or spurs to run. Has anyone been able to correctly get kyosho wheels to work on the rear with the correct rear width? Ive only been able to get to page 107 in the last 3 days.

Rear Weight when running Mid Motor. 2 Weights picked up in a 4 pack at walmart fishing section with a screw going from the bottom of the weight up into a kickup/toe plate. Might be a little too much weight but just dont want to run rear motor config because I like the look of mid to much.

I'll be honest, that looks like a pair of balls.

Weight is weight though I guess...
