the ambrc can fit in the chasis with double sided tape,

or on the rear left hand side of the chassis there is 2 spare screws where you can screw it in (but this position lays the PT sideways, and i had problems with the Transpoder picking up the signal, when the loop was above the car)
club transpoder

Sorry I don't get which is the plactic clip you were referring at. I attached a pic of CVA shock set...just when you have the chance man...

thanks.
they are shock spacers... they should come with the tree with the original shocks... they are a "C" shaped and slide between the spring and the shock cap around the shock body.... add some "pre-load"

coz in a Final it is a race against the other cars (not the time), therefore u want the transpinder as close to the front as possible... wont make a difference in 99% of the situations but everything helps....

Default Tires

Question for you mini guys. Just getting into mini's and was wondering what tire options are available. I would like to keep everything to "scale", meaning not using touring car tires. Thanks in advance.

The hubs that fit the Minis are the TA01 Touring Car Front Upright (Red). Tamiya part number 50648. The steering arms on these are shorter so the tie rods angle foward, but being shorter you can't use a sway (anti-roll for the rest of the world ) bar. I've used these and they work well and don't bend as easily as the stock hubs but I like to use a sway bar on my M03's so I went aluminum. Hubs from a TA02 might fit. I think they might be the same.

if they are threaded u dont need to use the spacers... well u may want to use the spacers to measure out 2mm or 3mm or 4mm
