hey putting some thread lock on the grub screw will prevent the screw from coming lose causing the pin to slide out. also if you feel that you have overtightened them next time you take them out replace the grub screw.

On the chart I have, Xray white is 15.27 (rated as 17.5), Light Blue is 18.35 (rated 20), Blue 20.00 (rated 22.5), Dark Blue 23 odd (rated 25). Hence why the car feels safer on the xrays, as theres a bigger rate difference (3lb versus 1lb) between the springs.

Hi,

Would this be a chart you can share with us?

Inndoor season is starting here soon and I'll be racing with 19T on foams. Any good starting setups out there for this combo?

Cheers

chart is on my website (link in sig), look under the excel documents section.

Regarding foam tyre setup... don't run them, sorry. All I can suggest is go stiff... Might want to get hold of extra centre braces too, there is one supplied with the car, but room for two more on it It's something I'm going to do myself as well.

HiH

im looking for harder knucles as the stock lightweigt are so breakable

i found square do aluminum c-hubs and knuckles for evo 4 , so they will fit in evo 5



theese are 20 euros at Champ (around 25 usd)

anyone use theese? should aluminum be harder on a impact? what i heard is aluminum bends , .... so the question is will it bends so easy as the stock knucle breaks?
