My experience is totally different. I bought a carbon fiber shaft right after I got my kit. Have been using it for Stock 23T and Mod Races (Orion V2 10x2 and 9x2 and 8x1) and have no problems thus far.

We race rubber on cement surface and rubber on asphalt surface.

Also have a questions about pistons and their hole sizes. I see on some setups that some are using 3 hole pistons with 1.3mm hole size. Have these been drilled or are they the #5 3 hole pistons that come with the kit? Thanks

Yes, they have being drilled.
I have tried 2 x 1.3, and 3 x 1.0.
Personally, I like 3 x 1.0. The original HPI ones are 3 x 0.8. So you still need to drill the holes.

On the outside, limiting up travel.

Was prompted to order at once but unfortunately the site uses PayPal. PayPal does not support yet the Philippines where I a from. If only they accepted Mastercard without paypal - I would've ordered already.
If I knew you were looking for a chassis... I would have offered to sell you my BMI... and send it with my Mother in law that recently flew back last sunday...

btw...Paypal does take Mastercard.

Thad,
I thought when they wrote in 1 o-ring they were replacing the rebound foam above the bladder? Ex. Your setup sheet from last years reedy you have 1 oring, so you put this on the outside of the shock shaft next to the spring retainer? Just would like to clear this up. Thanks

Evicerator,
I am without a "real" car for a while, little bit of an accident. Should get it back on a few weeks, its is currently being repaired.

dizzy1,
You are correct, one o-ring above the bladder. The carpet set-up required external limiters, but not for asphalt.

I've tried the Hotbodies white rim, tamiya one and another brand and they all have the same problem. My rear wheels seem don't have this problem.. Do you guys have the same problems?

and what is the pros/cons if i don't install the spacers?
thanks

p.s.I'm racing outdoor btw.

anyone?

a wider front would be more stable and faster cornering.
haven't had any problems...
I don't use spacers..but a wider hex hub in front and the stock hubs in the rear w/o spacers.
wider hex hubs can be purchased from the Integy website and available in purple..

rc-zombies, thanks for your reply.
So you are running wider front than rear right? what's the downside when you have wider front? (or rear)

and since i'm not living in US, which website i can order those wide hex hub? will it work if i order some wider tamiya hex hub?
