YES..BROOKLYN HOBBIES DEFINATLLY HAS THE UPDATED JACO RIMS IN STOCK,VERY CHEAP AS WELL CALL RICHIE,HE'LL HOOK U UP

Thanks for the info, Tommy. But Brooklyn hobbies is totally unacceptable in terms of shipping cost for us european guys. 200$ for 5 sets of tires Why is this? Other shops (in the US) ship much much much cheaper. Looks like they are not interested in overseas business...

Anyway, thanks a lot!

i want to ask you something.
1 teeth difference is big?from the rear as example.i have a rrr and i want to know if i can put someone else from mugen orr nt1 if my local shop is out of stock.
thanks!
1 tooth difference in belt is big , ....... however, the best answer would be testing on your own and making notes on your findings. For examples : I can't use MTX4's front belt (63T) for NT1's front belt (62T). It's too loose even with the farthest position on NT1's eccentric bearing holder. You get the picture, right ?

Default Bump Steer

How does changing the bump steer effect the car's handling? How do the shims under the steering tie rod change the bump steer? Bump in or bump out with more shims?

Default sorry

Im sorry,i dont know ANYTHING About shipping internationally, Back in the day, i actually owned a shop and oppted not to do it after getting scammed by fake credit cards etc... not to mention the COST!!maybe your used to dealing with larger shops with more shipping power?U know some of those shops deal only on-line, and mostly ship where they might have a better rate, i know for me, and what i buy, prices cant be beat!also maybe if yu contact richie and let him know youll be a customer, he might work somethjing out for you, you know regualr deal,where it works for you this time, next him..etc....

Hey Ron good deal I will see you there , love to see you run and tear that track up but also I know a for sure thing how someone can win 2nd place in the A-Main, they just have to hook a tow line to your car and they will take 2nd place home. LOL

If you take the shim out you will notice the car sucking itself into the apex of the turn off power. Stack some shims on it or use the 3 up rites and you will discover a lame duck at corner entry and a push monster on corner exit (on power). This is something I tested once. 1mm spacer... let it eat
