How are you fitting 4mm of shims in total for the front wheelbase Mike? And also, what did you find using no sway bars did?

Thanks,

Antoni

Congratulations on the win, Mike, your car looked fantastic.

A couple of questions:

How wide do you run your car? Doesn't the HB typically run pretty narrow?

Did you try an LTC-R at the race? Why'd you end up with the speed6?

Widths are on the setup sheet, 187 front, 188 rear. Mike is only using 1D of arm sweep, so a lot less than kit.

Where can I get the 1.1 mm 3 hole pistons? Also what does having so little (2mm) of droop do? I run 8.5 mm of course on a different track. I was just wondering.

Thanks, i ran my mod car more narrow for grip, but wanted stability for the stock car. The ltc was making the car very nosy and a bit hard to handel, so i swapped it out for stability sake.

I have schuie 3 hole pistons in mine, and just drilled out the holes larger. My droop is measures in mm over ride height not total uptravel, so its not too much more...basically just keeps the car flatter in tthe chicanes.

Thank him with a Factory Team Contract.

Mike has helped me a great deal with my TCX @ Horsham. The guy is an ideal ambassador for HB/HPI.

I'm sure Alex and Jerry can agree as well.

Has any of you ever use 6 degs caster c hub? I m asking because recently I ordered 4 sets of c-hubs part #73518(4 deg caster) from one of the HK online shop, strangely all of 'em contain 6 degs caster c-hubs. If I use it what changes in handling am I expecting?
