Got a 007 us spec, works awesome, but if I wanted to run rubbers on the rug will the extra stiffness hurt performance. Any one have a set up for the us car, but for rubbers?

I keep tweeking the upright screws in teh rear hubs! I do have teh set screw in the hole not being used, but it always tweeks and my car turns retarded one way, think i should get the Xray or Team Tamale rear hubs then!?

BSchorr- If you are running foams on carpet, then the aluminum hubs might be best. They are inherently stiffer than the plastic ones and through less flex will give you less traction or take some away.

Now, when you say tweak do you mean the camber link pops off or the hubs are breaking??

I ran a US Spec car for rubber for awhile. For me it was faster then my 007 Euro. I ran a one way in the front and a rendition of the Paul Lemieux setup from the IIC race.

Since switching to the tamale alum hubs my next weak point is the quick roll center mount, I broke one shock tower, and since put a flat washer on the screw. I can still bend them though and it alters camber and causes the car to pull, anyone have any other tricks? (yeah beside not hitting things )

I've gone from the normal rear outer camber link screws to screws that are 2mm longer. I'm using 3mm of shims there, so the longer screws are to get the screw depth closer to the maximum. Prior to this I was having problems with border tapping causing the screw to loosen up the plastic hub. I also went with 2mm longer screws in the front upper camber link, and use a shim on top of the ball if the screw touches the axle.

Well you covered the number one thing!! (not hitting)
I would use a large concave washer and as adamge posted try a longer screw. It seems that the longer screw "catches" more thread and makes it stronger.
As will happen when you go to a stronger material (aluminum in this case), the forces are transferred to the next weakest point (Tower or link)

How well do you think it would work w/ a front diff?

Default titanium screws

does anyone know if the mtx4 uses almost the same screws as the 007, the reason i ask is because i wanted to change to titanium screws and i can get my hands on the mtx4 screw set. thanks!

When I first got it I ran it with the diff. I gained a consistent .2 a lap from the front diff to the front one-way. (two totally different setups)
