Hey Ty. Make sure you run the x12 13.5 with the 4-dot insert (new motors should come that way, but original batches came with 2-dot installed). I run 7.41 FDR with this motor (and may drop it down a tooth for the smaller track), and a moderate amount of boost (0-5-5-0 on the LRP SXX SS MK4). I had tried it at around 8.0 FDR also with more boost, but found the powerband to be less linear... more agressive out of the corners, then less midrange, and then a little more and the end of the straight. The spool down with the higher FDR wasn't as linear either. The spool down starts off slower and then the car slows down much more quickly as you approach the corner. I found that setup to require more control to trail-brake consistently... which you may not have a problem with.

See you Friday.

Sounds like you have a shim out of place somewhere. Or a bent axle.

I ve just done building my car last week and its been like that since the first time I put it on my set up station. I have tried to adjust the suspension blocks a few times but its still there. I read somewhere here that the problem come from the stock uprights. I just wonder if getting the option alum one will solve it.

Yes, the aluminum uprights will fix the toe issue.

Why dont you try another pair of std hubs if you have some? I dont have any rear toe issues on my car.

Yes, I remember on the " hot bodies cyclone " thread, there were a few pages on this discussion, and the problem seemed to be the hubs.
I had this problem, i bought the 3racing toe blocks and it didnt change anything so to answer your question dameetz, they are fine i think .
But for the toe issue, try changing hubs ...

Yes there are problems with the rear hub, some have strangely wrong pin hole of 0.5 , but not all, may be resolved by using aluminum hub HB type, 3R or Jet

I use Jet #CYL-08P

Thumbs up Front Knuckle : rear Hubs

Go the JET ALLOY Hubs & Knuckles the bearings
Fit better in them, the 3R ones the bearings don't seem to fit as snug,
Found the outer ring on the Bearing could spin unless you used a locking

Where can we order the Jet parts from online? I went to the jethobby.com site and they have some nice pieces for the TCX. I emailed them for online and eBay retailers but looking for suggestions from the racers here.
