tnx kid TT-01 & dameetz for the reply.

actually running rubber sorex 40sh is perfect but the members in my group want to keep it cheap so to attract more newbies since we only have 6 members. we use to run touring rubber but i just wanted to try foams and cant get the right setup with it. i am using 26mm front and rear nitro foams. some of the newbies are hesitant to come back due to cost of sorex rubber tires here (they run on rails). anyway tnx for ur sugesstion and i will try it out.

which ones are the narrow rear blocks? you mean this SAK-63/PK = Narrow Suspension Mount RR+30 (RR3 Degree) Sakura Zero?

You need these 2 to convert the rear into narrow and still maintain the same toe in angle.

SAK 60 PK Narrow for the RF

and this SAK 63 PK Narrow for the RR

You may need to use 44mm rear universal shaft to pair with the narrow conversion. Check if its binding against the Gear Diff outdrive cup. If this won't solve it, you can narrow it some more by using the optional 4mm thick wheel hex.

What do you mean by down stop dimension? You mean the screws?

Anyone have a good trick for measuring or getting the proper tension set on the front and rear belts?

tnx again dameetz for the reply. will do that today and i will also turn over the front and rear diff so i can access the pinion without removing the motor (the front belt gets in the way with the grub screw of the pinion
).

It will do fine. Just check if there is any binding(no gap or little bit gap between the universal shaft cushion and the inside end of the gear diff outdrive) For me I ran mine using 46mm intially(without problem) and changed it to 44mm now since its already available from 3racing.

Thanks, someday mine will get here on the slow boat from China. Never again will I order from Dinball...

About how much give do you want in the front belt? What's too tight and what's too loose for normal running? I have never had a car with such strange belt tension from the get-go, so I never paid attention to it at all before.

Kit settings the belt is fairly tight, it will loosen up after a few runs.

Has anyone tried the narrow chassis yet? Just got one and thinking about trying it out. I'm thinking this will give me more overall grip but would like to hear what others think...

It give you a lot more steering as the chassis flex more. As we run mod class (I am running 4.5T and some guys even use 3.5T... ) I don't really like it as it make the rear end quite loose.... I think it should work better if you run it in the stock class.
