i broke a couple before i got the wide wheel hex's, if you dont want to get the hexes then try shaving some material off your axles, but if you do you cant widen it, but that is what fixed the breaking for me

the offset rear hubs are used to "free up" the rear of the car when running foams on carpet. You use the inside hub mounting hole on the arm when using them since they offset the axle more to the outside.

I broke heaps of C hubs until I changed over to Alu C hubs.

http://www.asiatees.com/display.php?...l=XXX-S&pid=1#

They are 0deg, so to compensate, I run the front of the hinge pin in the high roll center position and the rear in the low roll center position.
This results in about 3deg caster and some kickup, which adds some rear traction.

Woohoo - took out my club's stock title for the year with the type R (well, a little help from the JRXS for the 1st couple of months) - that's 2 years in a row my Losi's have won

are there any other manufacturer's spur gears that work with the type r? horizons eta is 12/24 but that means it will come off back order in like maybe june

looking for the 118 tooth spur. if anyone has an extra that they are willing to part with id be interested as well.

you can only use the losi spurs unless you get the PRS spurgear adaptor

I was a good boy and a little early Santa, bring me the type R.

So I'm leaving my Cyclone to the Losi.

Some one will to help with the "Do and Don't Do"?

Racing mod, BL 4.5 or similar "hot" brushed.

Thanks in advance!
