I believe the Shimizu tires are what you want.

Metric kit. It has an adaptor for standard spur gears on a metric rear axle.

I got my kit today as well as all the other bit I was waiting on for it. Still need to glue tires up and paint the body.

I used the Speed Passion body and I had to move the rear body mounts inboard to get it to fit.

Sure!

There just phone pics so bare with me here

A couple of things to keep in mind.

- The biggest pinion I could fit on the stock spur with the axle in the lowest position was a 35t 64p Which gives about 2.71 FDR

- The F104 wing needs a bit of trimming around the mounting hole to slide into the front suspension block

- The full aluminum rear pod is dope!

Has anyone else built the ball diff on this thing yet? Is there a bearing I can use in place of the plastic bushing they include to fit the spur to the axle? I feel like the plastic bushing is causing some binding that would affect the performance of the ball diff.

Anyone?

My ball diff is buttery smooth. Maybe the reason for the plastic bushing is the fact it fits more snug onto the carbon fiber vs a metal bearing? I have some metal bearings leftover and may try replace in the near future.

The plastic piece in the spur gear is an adaptor. They did this as there are a large number of inch (3/8) bore spur gears but the axle is 6mm. As far as I know there isn't a bearing that has a 6mm i.d. and a .375 o.d.
Our club got 4 kits and so far one adaptor fit the axle well but not the kit spur (gear bore was undersized) and the other kit the adaptor was very tight on the axle but loose in the gear.

Question:
Does anyone know the spring rates for the included springs? Front and back side springs.
They gave a center spring chart but nothing on those.

Not too sure what the spring rates are, but it would be good to know

Here is a pic with the Speed passion body mounted up
