This is exactly what you need: Tamiya 53827 Stabilizer Rod Stoppers in between the bulkheads on each side to stop the slop. You can also use the Dubro ones in the airplane section of the hobby shop but they are not blue and lightweight.

correct me if i'm wrong. you can use the front knuckles from the Pro4?

can you use the rear hubs as well? is there any shimming involved?
i prefer not to use the 950 bearings if possible.

sorry to get off topic. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

You are correct.....both Pro4 part will work.

You have to shim them accordingly. I know using the knuckles you will need a 1mm shim on top.

It has more to do with fitting 28mm foams on the car....that is why most people use it or have been asking about it on this board.

As for results/input....this is what David Spashet posted "The hubs lower the axle height and give a different akerman, More steering."

$268 sounds good! The RRP is $400 (according to Tamiya site) and remember the kit replaces nearly all of the Alloy parts in your car. That and the fact everyone currently wants this kit you can forgive them for setting a high price.

I have pre-ordered (maybe too early) it at $280 from etamiya. But at UK 140 to replace half the car seems a reasonable deal.

Could you (or anyone else) explain this in detail? Sounds like an interesting tuning option that is applicable to many cars

Yes you can use the rear ones, but you'll have to re-drill them as the pro4 uses 2.5mm hinges, and the tamiya LW uses 2.6mm. It might only be 0.1mm but you won't get them in, so you need to redrill them properly, and make sure they're free after that.

Then use more shims on the turnbuckle on the chassis side (2mm more than usual) since the hubs are higher (they give sensibly the same roll centre if you do that).
