Default Front Right High with RIDE TIRES H1

Hi - can anyone explain me what can i do with the Ride tires H1 in the front to become 3.5 mm ground clearance ?? I've tried everything, but the lowest is everything 4.8 mm ground clearance - if I attach under the steering arm more like 2.5 mm, the kingpin touches me on the wheels. hope someone can help me - thank you

I'm running 64p pinion when I use a stock spur. I mostly use kimbrough spurs though.

you will get a nicer mesh if you use proper tamiya pinions and spurs, as they are not quite 64 pitch

I realize. That's why I normally run kimbrough. But they aren't off enough to worry about it if I need to mix them either.

I thought that I saw an ad a while back, that said GQ tires now sells F104 foams mounted and loose............:ti re:


Ok, surfed the net and found the link, but I personally have not ordered from this company.

GQ F104 Foams


Opps, just reread the post. you guys want foam rims.

Dave the 'C' should have them in the box behind the counter.
