Make sure the bearings are seated in the Hot Racing axles and the bearings/axle cups are seated in the HPI alloy knuckles.

How are you judging the offset? Is it with the tire to the wheel well? Sometimes the body is not quite symmetrical and the offset looks off. Use a ruler to measure from the center of the chassis to one tire/wheel. Do the same for the opposite side and compare the two measurements.

The bearings are seated all the way into the hub carriers and the axle cups aswell. I can see that the offset is off because the the front right wheel with a 0mm offset hub covers the two allen screws that hold the carrier hub to the a-arms where as the opposite side is not covering the screws. I also noticed that the dog done side of the axle sits further outside of the out drive cup, close to the edge.

Default My CR

after lots of offroading with my SC10 and B44, I did sell the B44 when I got fed up with it and so I decided to try out the Cup Racer. Ever since I was a kid I loved the looks of the Porsche Carrera...

hope I'll have lots o' fun with it though - the paint job was done by me, using Pactra cans.







I know the body is sitting too high up, but until I get used to the car, I'd like to leave it that way...

Are you using different offset wheels for the front and rear? Maybe the wider offset rears were put on the right side of the car.

All of the rims have a 0mm offset. This is really weird becuase it does not look like anything is wrong or off. Maybe it's the hot racing axle cups, not all the same lenght? Either that or I am thinking it might be the plastic hubs that connect the wheels to the axle cups because it seems that they do not sit flush, they kind of stick out alittle.

I have to put a 2mm spacer on the front right wheel to match the front left wheel with a 0mm offset spacer. And a 1mm spacer on the rear right wheel to match the rear left wheel with a 0mm offset spacer. The rims all have a 0mm offset.

Anyone know the reason/cause of this?
Post up some pics..

It's telling me that I can't post any links or URL's because I don't have a high enough post count.

Ohh also Is anyone running an exotek alloy front input shaft? I bought one a couple weeks ago and just got around to installing it today but that sucker will not fit inside the bearings. It seems the diameter is a tad to big. Is this how it is or did I get a dud?

Car is fairly durable. Only week point is the front joint cup for centre drive shaft. Exotek has a replacement. if you plan on racing the carbon shock towers and upgraded threaded shocks.
