if your track enforces that rule, they are fing stupid. The rule is that the truck must be on the market for 14 days.....even if your track was that stupid, you would only be a week away from being legal

I was told the widths are the same and the +3 will still be good

Got home a few hours ago with my new kit and I've been busy building it (and making dinner).

I just got the camber and steering links and installed and I'm happy to report that the fit of the ballcups is perfect. I couldn't tell if it was the ballcups or studs that have been modified since I built my T5m but they snapped on and were instantly loose and silky.
