Go to the first page of this thread and start reading, look for the bold print that says "Rims and he rim adapters"

When I had mine I ran the Losi 22-4 and Losi 2.2 rears and usully bought them in the DE wheels style and color unless DE were backordered then got the Losi ones so the colors were consistent.

Looking for a replacement upper Shock standoff. I managed to break one in a bad crash. Does anyone know if there sold separately from the kit?

Roku1200: Thanks! I soaked each orange part in Easy-Off Oven Spray. I found it at Wal-Mart and it's sold in a yellow can. In other online forums and videos, they say it de-anodizes aluminum. In fact, it removes anodizing through corrosion. Just spray the solution into a container and toss each part into the solution for approximately 10 minutes (or more if necessary) but check on each part often and remove each from the solution as soon as the orange is no longer visible. If you leave them in the solution for too long, it begins to significantly corrode the aluminum. I then used a Dremel rotary tool to sand and polish each piece to a high shine.

!!IMPORTANT - READ CAREFULLY!! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE: If you decide to try this technique, use rubber gloves and spray in a well ventilated area (preferably outside). This oven cleaner is SERIOUSLY strong stuff and you MUST take these precautions. It contains sodium hydroxide which will eat away your skin! To be technically accurate, the chemical reaction is called "saponification" meaning when it comes into contact with the fatty tissue in your skin (called triglycerides), it literally turns your skin to soap. Bottom line, stay safe and use the proper protective gear when using this product!

Default Tech/setup question

I race on high bite. I have copied ronnefalks cactus classic setup and various others. I am wondering what a fix would be for the outside rear wheel lifting in corners on entry. This is typically in a sweeper type turn. What adjustments do you guys think to start with to remedy this?

Some have gone to a +4mm chassis. Helps plant the car more.
