Even if the Mid~Span is the BLack sheep in the states..hahahahaah

You going to switch the arms out to mid span? I was actually going to go with the hardened A-Arms, I hear they perform similar to mid span..

It's like Christmas in August! This kit is sweet!!!!
Can't wait to get it assembled and on the track this weekend.
I'm surprised that it did not come with bearings for the steering and servo saver linkage.

The Tools and case is soooo cool.... looks like I'll have to sell my other tools now...

I did have the registration form....do I need to mail this in or can I just email it?
Now you're a true member of the club, awesome car isn't it?

Thumbs up Re: Cmon Rtype. you have gears!

Rtype. I got plenty of gears for you. All you had to do is ask. Give Redbull the smack down. He's only got a few weeks left of racing before his new commitment starts to take over his free time. Maybe he'll get her to race someday.
Guess what came in the mail yesterday? I boat load of gears! Booya! RBF is going down...

Down to:


It's gonna get brought!



Seriously, it'll be fun racing tonight...and what's FMW (looks like SWF for some reason) doing in the fish thread? Oh wait, what am I doing in the fish thread? haha Fred, I got an extra set of the new super and uber stiff springs for ya.

See Rod, none of you Tamiya guys can stay in your boring Evo 3 forum, you all crave the signature scrolling I'm not going to be able to make it up tonight, but I hope everyone has a blast, good luck to all (with barracudas)

What's the std rear toe-in? 2 deg?
is that built into the arm or the rear hubs.
I've seen 1 deg rear hubs...will that give 1 deg rear toe-in or add 1 deg for a total of 3deg.

Luckily for you, you have the offset suspension balls (the titanium nitride ones) You are going to need to remove some toe in from the back of the car, because there are 2 degrees on the chassis, and 2 on the hubs. Shoot for the 2.5-2.8 range (as per JDM Dave) I am running 2.5 at SoCal, dont know if you'll be racing it there or not, but that is a good starting point.

Steve, sorry for buggin' the crap outta ya for it when indeed I didn't bother to look closer. I feel like a schmuck. LOL
