So I better plan on getting that then....? Does it give you more height to work with or just width?

Width is what you gain with that. You don't have to mod that much to get batteries to fit in the car.

Does anybody know where I can get a spare topdeck and maybee a screw kit? Would like to experiment with cutting a topdeck for more flex but I can't find one.

Hello, I'm new to this forum and have a Type R. But for the life of me i cant figure out why the car seems to "dog walk" a little bit. All hubs, carriers, knuckles match side to side. Ride height is even. nothings bent. Replaced the rear toe block. Shimmed the slop out. Still "dog walks" any ideas?
Thanks

that happend to me few weeks ago, I had a front arm hige pin mounted wrongway, front to a shorter arm hole, rear on a longer arm hole. Ineed a eye glass bad.

or check make sure hub is not binding by removing a hub out of the arm and mount a wheel as you normaly would and spin it, if you been using regula lock nuts for awhile or just have axles for long time causing binding on the hub bearings.

Just coasting straight or on power, you can see the back of the car kick out to a side, seems mostly like the left. Theres no consistency in it, it just happens every few feet.

Asphalt, I just rebuilt the whole car, The only thing i found is my rear diff is goofy. It like catches if you spin it. It has new rings and gear. But i think i need all new trust set up, balls, and nut/outdrive thing.

replace the pulley, sometimes you just can't get all the dirt out of them.

The rear "big" one was brand new, just old balls.

Heres my car. My first body using Fasmask and cutting paint masks on my vinyl cutter. Don't mind the pink wire, lost a bet with my girlfriend. lol

Are you running 1' rear hubs? If so, you've got 4' of rear toe, which could be causing the dog walking. Tons of rear toe will make the rear end wander around inconsistently. Chassis has one degree drilled in, picture shows an additional 2' in the pivot block, plus whatever you've got in the rear hubs.

p.s.-make a bet with your girl that the car will handle better with the electronics mounted on the chassis. When you win the bet, have her buy you some black wire.
