KilRuf - Tamiya makes some spacers that come with the EVO III and the Surikarn. I will look up the part no. for you tonight and post it tomorrow. I think that they make both a .5mm and 1mm spacer.

Later, Lee

Tamiya made some when the TA04R was released, and they're 1mm (red I think). Don't have the part number anyway.

For the bearings, I remove the grease with White spirit or F fuel or any good solvent. Of course you need to remove the C-Clip. I use my X-Acto but it's indeed a hassle.

I really carefully remove one retaining ring and shield with a sharp (new blade) exact knife. Then, I use the integy bearing cleaner (its a vibrating tray basically) full of WD-40. Leave the bearings submerged in the WD-40, with the tray on, and it will shake loose all of the heavy grease out of the bearings. I do not recommend using motor spray, as it drys out the bearings and evaporates too quickly to clean very well. Though WD-40 does help lubricate, you should still use a thin bearing oil (like the Trinity purple stuff) after the bearings come out of the cleaner. After all this, the bearings should spin more freely, however will require more maintainance because 1 shim is missing and dirt n' junk can get in more easily.

Any info would be great...or talk him into making some guest posts on this thread...lol

Thanks

Jeff
Chris told me that his base setup for everywhere is just the standard SD setup that is included in the kit setup sheets. He was running green springs in front, and pink in rear tonight, but that's with a fast mod, and a high grip track. Also had silver swaybars front and back.

I know I've seen David Jun use them (me thinks at least) and I don't remember if it was a Tamiya part or HPI... or something else. But would anyone here know what I'm talking about and have a part number? I need it for carpet to space the front wheel out just a tad to fit 28mm up front. It just barely rubs and I don't feel like cutting the tire down to 27mm and/or cutting the Team Suzuki spindles. Thanks
Tamiya makes the spacers, 1-800-TAMIYA-A or have Speedtech special order you some.

Just an update for you guys that care. Chris was running up at SoCal tonight, had a very fast car. He hit the TQ by .009 seconds over Thad Garner and his HPI Pro 4. Chris burnt his motor in that run, and chewed up the tires pretty good as well, unfortunately we dont have too much time on Tuesdays, so Chris threw in a new motor, and I glued up a set of tires for him. We should have scrubbed the tires in, because they wouldn't catch traction at the beginning of the race, and Thad got away from him. Chris is an awesome driver to watch even when his car isn't working, and he did give a good show.

Hi Guys,

I believe the wheel spacer kit is part number TAM53488 (man, if I can pull part number out off the top of my head...I think I'm in the warehouse waaay too much ) This pack comes with a variety of thickness.

KilRuf - The individual parts no.s for the spacers are:

9805798 1.0 Red
9805899 0.5 Blue

These are the no.s from the EVO III Surikarn kit.

Hey guys..

Just got my SSG put together and the Novak SS installed. I added my tires and my front end is way lower than the back end. What is the droop for the front and back that everyone is currently using. I just used the same numbers from my Nitro TC3, since I tweaked that for racing, but I may go another route with the SSG.

Thanks
