Ok well I think I will be doing mainly carpet racing so I will try yhr small stuff first then the chassis. So a spool and one way and the spring set is the most important? Do I get both the spool and one way? and which goes in the front and which in the back? I am new to the touring car seen so please bear with me haha.

The spool and or one way should only be installed in front. I would suggest just getting the one way at first, as a spool will in most cases will cause more parts breakage if you are new and will be hitting stuff. Also even more important is the spring kit. Most guys running rubber tire are running the blue springs in front and silvers in the rear. rc10.com has alot of setups you might want to try on your car as it will give you a starting point setup that should work pretty good. Also if you are new to this, you should get a buds tc3 plastic bumper and install that on your car along with the regular kit bumper it will help cut down on breakage of the front end parts.

Ok cool. Now I have been told my car will handle good without the new chassis but will have a little less grip in the rear. So Would it ok to get the car set up so I can drive it good and consistant then get the new chassis and the will work out the remaining bugs? Isnt the new chassis for rubber tires? or is it for pavement?

The ITF is for increased traction as pointed out. That could be asphalt or carpet but the most benefit is rubber on asphault, and rubber on low-med grip carpet. The stock chassis works fine on asphalt just run with 3 1/2 degs rear toe to start and work from there.

You'd need a setup station to measure it but you dont need to measure it. The kit comes with 1.0 1.5 and 2.0 deg shims. Just use the 2.0 and 1.5 shims = 3.5 and it will be there. You prob. should pick up some slightly longer screws to be safe. The stock ones will get you by for a while.

They are actually 6X10X3. There is a typo in the manuals. I buy my bearings from Avid also....

Default Ball Studs

What's the difference between the silver and black ball studs?

I see the most recent setup sheet call for silver studs on the rear outer holes.

Thanks!

The silver balls studs are taller. The "ball" part is about 1-2mm higher than the black ball studs, therefore minimizing the amount of shims needed.

Front toe you adjust with the turnbuckles. The rear is adjusted with shims.

Ok well also I thought for the rear you would change hubs? Now the shims are they the anti squat shims or where do these shims go?
