On the wheel hub, there is a small set screw that you can loosen with a 1.5mm size hex driver. Loosen it and it will uncramp the aluminum wheel hub so you can take it off.

In case you have the simple silver wheel hubs, that are without a set screw then do the following:

1. Take the black O ring or rubber ring,(call it as you want)

2. Push the pin out.

3. Try pulling the wheel hub. It should come off with ease.

i.m racing my 414M tom. the track is carpet with a nice technical layout. we use sorex 20 tires. i changed the wheelbase, made it short, to give me better handling and less overteer. i'm using extra stiff springs with 80wt oil in front, blue stab bars using the wcr stab kit, in the rear i used medium springs with 40wt oil and no stab bars.

tested the car with the adjustments a made yday and the car was planted. most of the racers use traction compound, what i did was i tried the set-up without traction compound and was shocked to discover how planted the car was, no oversteer whatsoever.

by the way, shock mounting position i used was no. 3, front and rear, front and center one ways, no belt tensioner.

do u guys have any experience running on carpet? hope u can share set-up tips, i enumerated my set-up, hope u can comment on them, i want to improve by experimenting, a little help please. tanx

front;
40w shock oil
blue springs
standard wcr roll bar
5 hole on shock tower.
outer shock mounting on wishbones

rear
45w shock oil
blue springs

dont us any kick up or anti squat [no spacer under ANY of the suspension pivot blocks].

this should be good.

the only thing is it may roll a bit in turns.if it does put white springs all round.because the set up is softer it should give more grip.also use standard wheelbase settings.front wheels fully back and back wheels fully back.

ola!

tanx 4 d set-up tips guys, well sad to say the race didnt push through, someone forgot the software for the lap countng system or something so what we did was we just ran our cars.

anyway, i tried my set-up and it seemed to work well, the only thing was i noticed that the ar had a tendency to push, but later i found out that instead of using the correct tires, i mistakenly ussed sorex 36s instead of the sorex 20s that everyone used.

i'll ru again this wednesday and this time i'll make sure that i use the correct tires, then i'll post the results again.

evaa,
Heres my setup for rubber tyres on a really high grip, and tight carpet track:

FRONT
white springs
50wt oil
blue roll bar, possibly stock 1.6mm wcr bar to smooth out steering
0 deg toe
1 deg camber
2nd hole from outer
2mm under front susp. block, 3mm under rear
one way

REAR
white/blue springs
45-50wt oil
blue roll bar
2.5 deg toe
1 deg camber
center hole
3mm under front susp. block, 2mm under rear

stock front wheelbase setting, 2mm shorter on rear
center one way
CS27
LRP blue factor(addative) full coat

...and im almost unbeatable using this setup
