I thought it was a car width issue. the stock pod with certain rims made the car over the 172mm roar rules and not able to run at most major events. not a problem with club racing unless you have a track tech nazi.

With the brushless pod without the new hub the rear width is about 173mm running Jaco Prisms. With an IRS hub the rear width is about 172.5mm.

My car with stock parts, wheels centered, jaco prism wheels is about 170-171, so you shouldn't need the new parts.

Brian, I think they were talking about the brushless pod w/out the BL hub...and using the stock or IRS hub.

12R5 She needs to go on a serious diet! Any word on aluminum screw kit? I would also like some slight weight front blocks to replace the aluminum ones.

I typically get all my screws from these guys. The best selection of aluminum metric screws in several colors and quick shipping.

Thanks for the link to the aluminum screws! I couldn't find M3 X 5 mm so I guess I will have to just shorten a longer lenght screw.

Holy Cow - Those are awesome prices for Aluminum Screws. Now I know just how badly us consumers are getting screwed by those kit costs.

So I happened to be going back thru this thread earlier today and noticed something on Matsukura's car from the Worlds that I hadn't noticed before. If you look at the pic you can see that he is running spacers between the upper arm mounts and the bulkhead and not running the hinge pin brace.

What is the advantage/disadvantage to doing this?
