The other thing I have found is that when building the spool, its never centres on the pulley properly, therefore when you try and tighten the belt it seems to tention up and slacken off due to it not being centered

Still looking forward to getting m hands on the new car

At the ROAR Nats, we did use single stage double pinks and ran well for the first time however we did glue the front outer side wall above the sidewall. For some reason the Type R does not need the ultra aggressive front tire like other cars. For the most part we did not like the 26mm tires on high bite as it would make the car lift in the middle of the turn.
This is good information. I assumed everyone was running rears all the way around, but knowing that you do not have to do this with this car is very helpful.

THANKS DUDE~~!

The Pulley that i use on the JRx-s is the same one that can used on the new type R

Its just the rest of the diff that is different.

Default Body Mounts

Hi guys

On the new car, are the body mounts in the same places as the old car?

Just been looking at the Manual, i believe on the new diff the pulley goes on like the one way did, so hopefully it will be fine

Mount the ESC on the right side of the chassis. This will give you more room to work with as you will not be working around the front belt.
Any chance of a couple of pics??? Cheers...

Front posts are the same.
Rear can be in same position or can be mounted 1 inch
further out on each side.
It also looks like length from front to rear posts is a little
longer, will measure when I finish building.
