My plan was to get a good start and get by 3rd fast enough to stay close to Rick and Barry which I did but hammered 3 different times by other cars thus ending my run. But I am extremly happy with the potential!! We were still able to secure a podium spot with Hiro finishing in 3rd (Nice work Hiro-San!). Attached is my setup.
what is the effect of using the outer hole on the rear hub? Ive been seeing allot of setup sheets lately using the outer hole.

The car usually feels a lot smoother. I've found it tends to make the car rotate better in longer high speed corners as well, especially through the middle and exit of the corner.

Give it a shot

The instructions say it's 4.1x11.5x0.2mm.

This might be close enough to work with a little massaging:

http://www.spec-r.com/default/index....roducts_id=162

ID is going to be ~4mm, so you could enlarge that with a file if it's too small. I don't know about the OD, but it's probably in the right ballpark.

If I had any spares of these I'd send one your way bud. Hopefully in about a week we will have them in stock with our next batch of kits.

Hi did anyone else experience the shafts coming out with the steel out drives? Not tried plastic yet so will have to see. It just seems the shafts are too short for the cups is it the +1mm wider front or something else maybe 46 mm shafts should have been supplied? Thanks J

Anyone know where I can find a complete parts list for the TCXX?
I want to order a bunch of parts when I order my kit.

Are the suspension arms the same as TCX? I think that is what Fred had mentioned earlier.

Any other recommendations on parts besides the usual rear hubs, chubs and knuckles?

Never mind, found the parts list:
