What are you using to shim the tower up ?

I am using the countersunk washers from the TEN platform that hold the nitro engine in, lol. They fit over the keys perfect.

You will need to figure out how to get 12mm hexes on the XXX but if you can do that you should be able to use them. I don't think the 22 hexes will fit on the XXX axles but never tried. You can use XXX wheels on the 22 with stuff included with the kit but going the othe way is a little harder but I am sure doable. Might have to drill out some hexes.

Sir,
DO you have a part number for the washers and a picture of the car and how you installed it? Do the washers go between the chassis and tower?

Thanks,

Dave

There are small nubs that lock the tower to the camber block in this case.

I think these come with LOSB5033.

Not sure if you can get them another way and I am sure this is not the only way to do this just what Ryan found that worked in his box of stuff!

So they just go between the tower and the camber block with the cone side up so the shock tower nubs fit in the cone hole. You can shave off the index numbs on the bottom of the tower as well and just use normall spacers. There are a few ways to do this.

Could someone direct me to a rear motor set up for a really slippery dusty dry outdoor track.(mod) Tried the latest dunford setup and it works ok but still need more side bite and forward bite. How much weight is normally added to rear motor setup.

Thanks for the reply Casper. Seems like a little bit too much fussing around for me. Might just buy a 22 instead

So here is my question. Did the rear sit higher up than it did with the stock arms? and what did you end up doing for shock oil?

Hardly been any RM talk. Mostly guys playing with MM. No "new" mods, but the TLR rack comes out next month.

Quick question for everyone... I've only used the Ball Diff in my mid motor 22 2.0. But I have heard of some using the gear diff from the RTR kit and adjusting diff fluid as needed.

Have any of you tried this with success? Notice any significant differences over the Ball Diff?

I only ask because I am due for a Diff rebuild soon and started looking at all my options. I used to run the Team C evo and that platform was better with the gear diff.

if you are running 17.5 stock the gear diff is a good option with just black grease. if mod i'd stick with the ball diff.
