Hello:

I haven't been racing for a while and I won't have the time to do it for a while longer. I have a full set of black anodized aluminum parts for a FK. I will sell them for the right price. This is a full set basicly I took a kit and had all the parts anodized. If anyone is interested plese email me at [email protected] do not reply here because I won't get it I will provide picture to all serious inquiries. Thanks for looking and have a great day.

For Carpet? Sure!

Front:
Spring: Red
Shocks: 1 Hole, 30wt XRay oil, Outermost hole on Shock tower
Toe: Straight
3 degree C-hubs
Either 0 or 2 deg kick-up (Mod you need 0 deg kick-up)
Droop 1 at the kingpin screw head
Camber: 2 deg
2mm spacer under camberlink (between rod-end and c-hub)

Rear:
Spring: Violet
Shocks 1 Hole, 30wt XRay oil, Either of the middle holes on the tower
Toe-in: 2 or 3
Droop: 4 at the outer hingepin

Body: Mazda 6 works nice. Caddy kinda hard to drive
Tires: Purple-Orange Fronts & Purple Rears

Jilles Groskamp suggested 3 holes open for the shocks and a front swaybar because I was having problems with lifting the inside wheels.

Enjoy!
-Dan

Check this link for the recently announced new option parts: http://www.teamxray.com/teamxray/pro...kategoria=1297 . The announcement includes 1.5 and 4.5 degree composite caster blocks as well as new hard composite 1.5, 3, 4.5 and 6 degree caster blocks. Also announced are hard short lower suspension arms. For availability dates I suggest you contact your distributor.

TeamTamale chubs rock! They keep me racing. Bullet proof stuff. I'll be ordering the 4.5* so I can start experimenting with pro-dive.

I have a problem with my car that I haven't been able to figure out with the FK04 With the car running and the tires turned full left or full right the drive train will get a horrible shudder in it but it doesn't do it with the tires straight and it doesn't do it with the tires off. I have torn the car apart 2 times I put all new bearings in it and disconected the rear belt and the problem still exists. The only thing I haven't checked is the bearings inside the diff. But the diff feels awsome so I do see a problem there. It almost feels like the old style asc cvds when you would turn the tires the cvds couldn't turn anymore so they would rub on the axles. But on the FK there is aoubt 3mm of room with the tires fully turned. Also the belt isn't rubing anywhere.
thanks
