Mike take out the hub from the car and try rotate with a wheel on it, with or with out shims don't matter but with shim(s) are worse. you will see what I mean. I tried with genuine Losi BB and ceramics all same.

Anyone in the know if there's any truth to this? You can still order it from Horizon, maybe they're trying to get rid of the last of them?
I dont know what hes been smoking but that stuff is toxic.

I don't even bother sanding the aluminum hex adaptor, I simply sand the injection molding seam on the plastic hub. Takes two seconds with some light sandpaper.

I found this out swapping hubs between my Type-R and mid-motor JRXS, but it isn't a big deal.

Just something to try...
Jon, I put the basic components on the car and liked the feel. oil is at 45/35 and inside lower front camber link. The car feels smooth. Took out 1mm front droop for more on power steering but the major difference is that I have a 42T one way in the car. Gearing was money. That's what I have in the car now anyways. Thanks for the setup, I though I'd give it a try since 1/2 our racers are in Vegas so tonight was a perfect night to practice.

Sorry, I should have wrote it this - Your site doesn't seem to let you choose how many teeth you want.

Same here... I always use the shims to get rid of play. Its possible you have bad bearings although if there are a few of you with the same problem then that is less likely. I'll have a closer look myself during my next rebuild.

I do that also...I take away about .3mm off face of hub where outside bearing is. When completed the outside bearing shoulder is slightly exposed...

Just as I said, I use the aluminum hex adaptors but instead of sanding aluminum I simply sand down the hub (which is made from plastic).

And yes, the hubs on the Type-R are the same hubs found on the original JRXS mid-motor chassis, but I didn't assemble my Type-R, so I didn't notice the difference in pin location until recently.

Yes, I'm working on that, sorry about that I should have that updated tonight. This store software takes some work to get things just right . I still have broken images and such all over the place and some of my ordering options are not showing up the way I intended ... work in progress but i'll get that updated tonight.
