So when you say adds stability do you mean grip. I know widening the front generally removes some front grip, is it the same with the rear?

I never said stability per say . i feel as they going wider removes traction and responsiveness and yes both ends of car I'm thinking has same effect

Got a huge shipment of Hiro Seik T4 Screw kits in yesterday. Orange alumn top screws and titanium bottom. They are T4 kits but I believe almost every screw is there for the 14. I am going to check on that today for sure. I have extra's in packs of 4 as well as RC shims, wheel nuts and washers.

the rear of the 14 is very tail happy on the std settings ,the only way i could get the rear to stop stepping out was to go .5 wider on the fr + rr,it gives 3.25 of rear toe,and im going faster than with the 13 so i must be doing something right

Worth the money! Even after swapping every screw on the car I had plenty extra to use for weights, fan mount, etc..... So it's cheaper than buying small packs from other places. Plus it looks badass

Got mine from work, we got thousands in for a customer

The ideal place is a hardware shop that specialises in fasteners and fixings.

This is my current setup on CPX tires. The track is pretty tight and technical and I need a little more steering. The steering is close to what I want in the beginning of the run, but at the end the front tires overheat and I have to slow too much to make the car turn.

What could I do to get more steering? I'm thing of going to 2.5 rear toe instead of 3, but that change looks a bit drastical to me. Isn't it? I think the car will be hard to drive after that change. Tomorrow is Q4 and Q5 so I can't practice a lot :-(

Hey All
Anyone have a problem mounting motor in chassis??
I'm using a kill shot motor and it hits the chassis.

Hits the chassis, or top plate?
What gearing?
