G'day Bob,

The Mini Cross rims are very good and come in a packet of eight. I use these most with all types of tyres. The only rims that require a special rim are the new Ride inch up 60D size tyre.

Later,

Calvin.

Just a little fyi....I recently bought a set of sweep rims and a pair of Tamiya 60d slicks. The sweep rims are slightly taller than the factory Tamiya rims and they caused the Tamiya slicks outer edges to sit higher than the middle of the tread. It's best to check the tread profile BEFORE gluing up a set of mismatched rims/tires. I ended up having to use the tamiya rims with the Tamiya tires for proper fit.

You need a diff before the steering rack. You can always use 5mm shims to remove the play.

If you plan on running a WCR, bite the bullet and get the aluminum steering rack. If you plan to run any TCS races, get the Tamiya one and if not the 3Racing one is okay for about 1/3 the cost. The stock steering rack is okay if you don't hit anything, but even a fairly light hit will tweak the right bellcrank and the steering will go crazy on you. Another almost must is some TRF shocks. The #54000 is the easiest to work with.

The aluminum motor plate is a good upgrade, but not absolutely needed. Of course bearings. I'm not a big fan of the Tamiya servo saver and would replace that with a mid sized Kimbrough. There are a few others, but you can pick those up as you get familiar with the car.

Tires for WCR are still being sorted out, but the best handling cars seem to be using Sweep 40s or 33s. The fastest car out there is using an Atomic 36/32 combo. However, Tony Tam is probably as responsible for the speed as the tire.

Well, in Europe (or Norway...) we order from rcmart.com, rc-champ.co.jp or any other Asian shop where the best prices are...
