Default Tamiya America 2010 M Chassis Challange

For everyone on the west coast, or anyone willing to travel, here is a reminder that the 2010 6 hour M-Chassis enduro is coming up in July. The date will be Saturday July 17th. There have been a few rule changes, nothing serious. The information will be posted soon on the Tamiya America website!

It has a pulley on the side where the diff nut goes inside.

Quick question gurus:

Is it legal for TCS rules to use the adjustable arm kit (Tamiya) and use it for camber adjustment. I've seen it advertized as allowing to do this, however the two ball cups are a little long and would more then likely cause positive camber. I would have to remove a little from the end of the ball cup to make it effective.

I could not find this asked/answered anywhere...

I read someplace that the camber links are only for one end of the car "Front or back" I can't recall wich end though.

They are made for the rear of the car. When you buy them the instructions show fitting on the rear of the car

Read the instructions. They are ONLY designed for the rear of the car.

They are simply the adjustable rear links that come with the PRO kit made available separately so that buyers of the standard kit can put adjustable links on the rear of their kit,

I am not familiar with your TCS rules but if the rules say they have to be uised for their intended use then they cant be used on the front

Thay can be used only in the rear. To make them fit the front, they have to be cut, THUS making them illegal for TCS.
