There are spacers specifically for TC wheels. It would be best to order a set. TOP and many others make them in different thickness and colors.
Another route would be to get offset hex hubs.

YoDog,

Are you aware of any dish wheels that have offsets? Seems like they are all 0 offset.

Thanks!

YoDog: Where can I find your products at?
You can only get them from here or in person at this time. I only make parts in small quantities as I am doing this on the side where I work. I am lucky enough to have access to a machine shop and we primarily make one off prototypes but since I have been learning CNC Machining, my ideas soon become reality then voila! I'm working on getting something more, for the lack of a better term "legit", together but that takes quite a bit of $$$. I've made parts for other cars however since I am now running the TC6.1, I have incentive to make improvements for myself which can trickle down to making multiples of designs that work.

Anyone can feel free to PM me if there is any interest in the servo mounts or if you want to see some of my other projects. Suggestions are always welcome. Another part has been brought to my attention and I will see if it is possible to make and if there is enough interest, I'll make some of them too.
Obviously I won't get rich doing this but if I can help out my fellow racers and in turn help fund my future projects, I'll keep making stuff.

Most are pretty standard now. you might get lucky with HPI. As I recall, the only wheels that came in different offset were for foam tires. I could be wrong...

I'm having trouble finding them. You wouldn't happen to have a part number?

I have a question about Arm Mount. I noticed a lot of gap in the Arm Mount hole where the hinge pin is insert in them, this also after fews race.
This gap is more or less higher and different for each supply where I buy.
Is normal or not?
The "PPD Billet" is good, but do not have the choice of new offset and not easy to set up.
Any help is appreciated

Here are some I found on ebay.

Probably want to search using TC wheel shim. I'm pretty sure that companies like TOP, 3Racing, and spec-R and so on make shims.

Last night I noticed some slop in my rear hubs (TC6). It appears that the gap in the control arm is a bit longer than the hub and this allows the hub to move forward/backward within the arm. Are there shims to address this or does it mean the control arm has been "stretched" and needs to be replaced?

Try drilling a hole and putting a set screw in it. Worked like a charm for me.

YoDog, thanks for the reply. So how do you like the work you did for the floating servo? Is this something thats not too complicated that we can do too? I have a decent workshop at our other property that we use for wood crafts. Drill press, lathe, etc. Im thinking, can I make the holes need with the drill press? Any pics and help is greatly appreciated bud.


Ty.

Yodog has them scattered throughout a few threads a search will release them or PM him. Otherwise you'll have to wait until this weekend when I have some time to take pics of what he sent me. I'd recomend cutting me the middle man out and going straight to THE man.
