Like 34 for the pair the rtr already has them in front but I don't like dogbones in the rear. Will prob do the center ones in a month or so. I won't be running 6s we have a 4s limit on 8th scale at my track .

cva s installed , castle 2650 installed, mamba monster 2 esc installed.
Just found one problem though my grp rims are just barely rubbing the screw on on the end of the steering linkage. Any suggestions this is the spec tire for 8th scale at my track so I have to run them.

I posted on day one that the sweep wheels rub at 90% full lock also. I'm not sure why a team c/ofna race car wouldn't allow for a standard wheel without rubbing considering neither company makes real race tires. I was thinking maybe wider front hubs or different end links would be the only options other than limiting your end point adjustment on a good radio, that's what I did...for now. The stock wheel has a larger I.D. so I assume good tires wouldnt stretch over the stock wheels either. Thank you ofna/team c! That's really smart. The good news is the car has more steering than most.

You could champher the inside edge of the front wheels with a dremal drum sander to maybe provide a little less rubbing. Maybe dremal the end link a little too.

Mine are not rubbing at full lock but rather the inner inside edge is rubbing on the back of the screw head that holds the linkage ball on the steering knuckle
Was thinking of grinding 1-2 mm off the top of the ball link should let me drive it down enough to clear without altering steering geometry. Wish I could get some of this slop out of the left front as well though the left tire flops around way more than the right

I just looked at mine again and the wheel is actually rubbing the back of the arms outside the hinge pin area and due to the spoke design of the sweep wheels its pretty bad. Lucky fo me im just going mostly straight. I might clearance the wheels and edge of the arm a little.

Look what I got in a ebay auction. $40.60 the size is much smaller than I expected. Between this and my bushnell velocity radar gun I should be able to accurately gage the speed. Im almost ready for another speed run.
