Or you can ask Dr. Hohnstein for some advise. He seems to be THE MAN when it comes to setting up a rubber car.

Guys, on the setup sheet there is a place that says "hex spacing". What's the part # for the spacers and where do I put them? Between the hex and wheel or behind the hex?

Thanks

It goes hex, spacer, and then wheel. What it is doing is moving the wheel out on the axle a little bit.

I use the Integy one, was like $50. A little more if you order the one with the case. And i think you can get the one that comes with the board and the set up wheels for like around $100.

you get what you pay for

ive had the integy ones, didnt like them. fit wasnt too great, and they tended to be sloppy.

if you dont need the whole setup system you can get just the hudy blocks, my lhs has them for 130, can prolly find cheaper online.
