Does anyone make a rear body mount plate that will let me fit a mazda 6 shell?

Also what do people do when running the front roll bar as mine hits the steering blocks when the steering is turned and the suspension compressed.

Rick,

I take and move the rear body mounts all the way in where the slots are on that plate. You will need to take a 1/8 inch drill bit and open the slot up just a tick. But it wont hurt it. I havent seen anyone break a body mount plate once moved in either.

On the way bar I would say you have the front mount on back wards. Im looking at my car and it wont even get close untill you move the tire up about and bottom the shock all the way out. It wont move that much during a race.

Default Bearings for one piece spur gears

I just got one of the one piece spur gears (part# 79310) but when I went to fit it I discovered that the bearings that came with my current black spur gear do not fit - they are too small.

I drive a UK spec kit - is this right or am I just being stupid?? Do I need to put in bigger bearings and does anyone know the size I need?

Cheers,
Stephen

I have a bit of a problem with the RDX. I am putting together the Diff and for some reason it isnt working. I think i have not been given the diff pully but insted two of these?

Am i just stupid and its in another bag or i am actually missing something.

Ok....... you ordered the UK Edition Kit. I believe bag 2 is for the one-way. Not 100% sure. Those white pulleys used to be a $36 upgrade which are now included with the kits.

It is pretty simple. Instead of screwing the diff pulley onto the other diff half it is now a ONE PIECE PULLEY. So skip that part and move on to normal diff assembly. Simply put in the diff balls and follow the steps for the washers and assemble.

The kits are getting "running changes" which take the overall value even higher at no additional cost to you and it is tough to keep up on the manuals as you usually get 100's printed at a time. Sorry for any confusion.

Jeff

Hey Jeff, instead of printing new manuals, maybe additions or updates could be added to the kits...they can just be a simple half sheet of paper stating the updates in the kit thats different from the manual.

I had one of the retaining rings pop off on my one-piece pulley. A bit of CA fixed it up, but I noticed the other one diff a little loose to, and hit it with a bit of CA as well. Something to keep an eye on.

Got to say, sent an E-mail to Helger racing the other week advising them that the cone washers for the couplers were missing and that in the reviews the car had the duraluminium steering levers but in my kit i had the composite one's... I received the cone washer's via my LHS and a day or so later an E-mail from DAVE SPASHETT that due to the trouble i had had he would compansate me with the alloy one's. You don't get that service from everyone. WELL DONE HELGER RACING and DAVE......
