I'd recommend getting some lundsford fatboy motor screws so you can really crank on them.

Default tyre size

Hi

What size do you run your tyres on carpet , with a ride height of 3mm. I tried with 44mm rear and 42mm front , have CA glued the front tyres , but still the car flips. I use Capricorn 30 rear and 35 front. I think it only is the size that are the problem , as when the tyres get smaller the problem goes away

Even for club racing I run 42 mm rears 41 fronts glued.

You may be running too much camber too. I usually run -.5 or -1 never any more

Raced my Rebel for the first time today. I love this car. The only problem I have is that I bent an axle. I upgraded to the threaded axles and then hit the wall hard. Does anyone know if there is a titanium axle available for this car? Maybe from Lunsford?

I think the threaded axles are a bit soft ...

These might work for you.

Thanks. Has anyone tried these? My only concern is that the threaded axles from Top fit very tight. I wonder if these will fit correctly.

I use the Lungsford axles in my Rebel. They work really good. Also use the Turnbuckles.

I haven't heard any. Many inline designed cars are being run in the more traditional way.

After seeing the current 1/12 WC have to move over to let Larry pass in qualifiers at IIzc in 13.5 boosted I would say it isn't necessary.

I saw OD having one a couple months back I think he custom made for himself

I would rather have updated V2 steering blocks with titanium axles first though
