Those wheel nuts look different. Are they included in the kit. I can see in the pics altleast 3mm thread is sticking out which means you can adjust the width of you car more.

from the look of them they are serrated nuts, (no nyloc, but with serrations at the rear to grip on to the wheel)

Yes the wheel nuts on the 416WE are serrated. Just need to be careful when using them on softer wheels as they tend to cut right through them

How Do Ed,

On your pring chart there is no mention of the "WHITE" Tamiya springs... would I be right in thinking they are the same as the older full colour coded ones?

What springs are you currently using? I have heard a few people using the Hara type..

Cheers chap...

I miss my 10.5 in my 416
13.5 accels too much like stock.
I might as well just turn my 416 into a Trans Am (Camaro)
I need atleast one fast class to run. Looks like We are all going to have to figure out what cars and s#!t to put on them. Things are already WAY out of hand!

Just remember, you only have so much hex on the back of the wheel. If you space the wheel out too far you will end up stripping that hex on the wheel.

why did ROAR ditch 10.5? IFMAR has sanctioned it for superstock for 09. It's the biggest TC class here

I think ROAR was just trying to get the speeds down to what a 19 turn motor used to feel like.
