I don't think they sell the washers seperate. HB has a thin wheel hex with spacers as a whole set.

Tamiya, XRAY, Schumacher, 3Racing and TOP all have wheel spacers.

I've been using the ones included with the thin HB hexes for years.

Hi,

Should the screw in the top deck above steering assembly (68735) always be used ? the maual shows it installed but on the HB site under chassis flex options they don't show it at all

What's the best way to balance the car, I'm used to an xray chassis which has holes for the balancing tool.

Where can I get the purple shock spring nuts (30004) and a purple belt tensioner.

Thanks.

No this dosent have to be used, I dont think many of us run this ever, just the steering brace actross the two bellcranks.

I wouldnt worry too much about balancing your car, i havent done it for a long time now. But if you wanted to roughly see, get a piece of string and put it inbetween the shock tower grooves through the car.

Where can I get the purple shock spring nuts (30004) and a purple belt tensioner.

Just try and find some aftermarket ones, 3racing and TOP make these items

Thanks.
There ya go

Hey Antoni,

I just ordered the seperated Jet Hobby FR blocks. Got the 1 and 1.5 degrees. Have you tested both of these? What FF blocks did you use? I have heard that these wider seperate blocks and less sweep make the front a bit more settled while giving more and smoother on power steering?

Yea I am using the Jet blocks, they are fantastic! Better quality aluminium than the standrd parts for sure! I have used the 0 on rear and both 1 and 1.5 for the FR. I use 1.5 and 2 FF blocks. Yea it smoothens the car out a lot and makes it more consistant through a corner. The arm sweep does give more high speed steering, but overall I prefer no sweep.

Just a couple quick questions about changing the toe blocks (Front Arm Sweep) in the front of the car. If I change the front block from 0 degree to a 2 degree block, the steering should be more aggressive? Is that also called adding outboard toe out or inboard toe out?
Thanks for any clearification or pointing me out to where I can get this clearified.
