More importantly...I recommend that you get digital calipers to measure such yourself. You definitely need them for measuring your tires to get the most wear and performance from them...while saving money.

Thinking about it...I use calipers to measure tons of items on my pan cars. Calipers are gold as tools go.

hey guys,

need to replace my right height spacers as they are a bit loose in the hub, are the CRC ones the best fit or are there any others worth trying?

Cheers
Chris

Theres a link on crc's site that shows you how to modify your ride height spaces. Basically use a pair of pliars and pinch the plastic sides to make a tighter fit

I really like the CRC rear ride height spacers that come in a full array of .25mm increments from 0 to 3.75mm. Killer tuning tool.

i saw a pic of your car and if you're looking to cut some more fat out of the car go with 16g wire and use an encore shock. the encore is ALLOT smoother shock than the losi... plus you its allot lighter
