Default Front Right High with RIDE TIRES H1

Hi - can anyone explain me what can i do with the Ride tires H1 in the front to become 3.5 mm ground clearance ?? I've tried everything, but the lowest is everything 4.8 mm ground clearance - if I attach under the steering arm more like 2.5 mm, the kingpin touches me on the wheels. hope someone can help me - thank you

..Are most guys running 64P pinions with the stock spurs?...................Or do you get a better mesh with Tamiya pinions?

I'm running 64p pinion when I use a stock spur. I mostly use kimbrough spurs though.

you will get a nicer mesh if you use proper tamiya pinions and spurs, as they are not quite 64 pitch

I realize. That's why I normally run kimbrough. But they aren't off enough to worry about it if I need to mix them either.

I thought that I saw an ad a while back, that said GQ tires now sells F104 foams mounted and loose............:ti re:


Ok, surfed the net and found the link, but I personally have not ordered from this company.

GQ F104 Foams


Opps, just reread the post. you guys want foam rims.
