wish we had a Amain in OZ as its a extra $35 postage on top of the servo price.
usually the shops here are 1 1/2 -2 times the price you guys pay.
I eventually found the importer here for jaco tyres,but still have to go threw a hobby shop.
$28 for fronts
$36 for rears

You need to talk to the owner of A-Main Hobbies, Kendall Bennett. He is an Australian!

Come on down under bill, I will throw another shrimp on the barby mate.
Things are a lot more expensive here, but a lot is not the shops fault but importers and then the cost of rent for a hobby shop, even a small one is around 5-6 grand a month. That's a lot of Rc gear just for rent.
Strange thing is prices are the same when the Aus $ was worth 52c u.s now it's worth double that but Rc gear is still the same price.
And fuel has gone up $1.50 plus a liter, close to $6 a gallon.
Still aus is a top place to live.
Enough of my dribble, looking at a new body for the Le, what's the Sophia GT like ??

i first ran in line as was recommended in the manual,i found it to sensitive (very twitchy)
changed to trailing and then moved the the front end to the forward position to get the wheel base back closer to standard.
i found it much better for the large track i run on.

Just sent this question to John at CRC:

I race an original GenX10 in the British BRCA WGT Nationals. It was the first round on Sunday the 8th of May. An issue arose around the rear width. Lots of CRC cars running CRC/BSR tyres were coming in over the 200mm limit even with the shims out of the rear axle (which you can't run as it rubs on the mounts). The majority of CRCs running were conversions to the LEs or older LEs. There were a couple of brand new LEs (less than a month old) that made it within the width limit shims and all. When I did some measuring to compare where the difference was I found that the left hand hub/wheel clamp was over 1mm different to the older version. Also the plate on the axle (where the diff ring sits was also wider.

Now I believe the part numbers are all the same so can't see any difference why it was changed. This leaves lots of people competing in the BRCA nationals this year with a bit of a dilemma. Either trim the wheels/tyres down or try and find the new parts (to great cost) to replace the older/wider.

Anyone else experienced this? Would also be good if some people could measure theirs so we can compare. I measured from where the hub sits against to the shims and where the wheel sits against the hub.

Cheers

Just measured mine (pre LE, rolling chassis, no electrics, as we no longer race them at Aldershot) and with a 1mm spacer each side and running GRP Yellow wheels I am smack on 200mm.

I have had to stop all racing outside the club due to finances.
Only racing now as I am using 6+ race old tyres given to me by faster drivers.
