Juan-The SK2 has more steering than the Alfa.

Cole Trickle- The car uses all the same bearings as the XXX-S in the spindles, rear hubs, and outdrives. It also uses the 5mmx8mm bearings in the diff. The center shaft uses two 4mmx8mm bearings.

stumper-Ouch!!

J.Filipow-Yea...there is this really cool guy I know who designed it for me....I can hook you up....lmk!

I like the Skoda2 body, and I especially like that it comes with the car! But I still think I'll have to give this baby a try...



The look of this Stratus 2.0/Mazda 6 mutant is just too cool to pass up!

Default Since we're on the subject of bodies...

Does anybody plan on usinig the fifth body post? I've never thought that I was going fast enough for it to really help anything. But I do plan on using this car for mod. class, so I was wondering should I actually consider using it now.

IF i race mod I will use that post, but for stock I won't, unless i see that the body is flexing, then i will use it in stock. But it should not flex when using a stock motor.

Matt Francis added the 5th body post on his mod XXX-S when he noticed the body was flexing. Suppose that the same applies to his JRX-S.

A few weeks ago, Matt had the 5th post on his JRX-S acting as a platform under the hood. There is no hole in the body and no clip to fasten on top. Just provides upward support without the hassle of fastening another clip.

For about six months, I have been running a standup foam pad (AE battery cell spacer glued in place) on the top of my XXX-S's tunnel that extends to the bottom side of the hood. The two apparent benefits of the body not flexing just in front of the windshield are...1) far less cracking at the tops of the front wheel wells; and, 2) car seems to be less affected by those ugly first turn multi-car pileups. Therefore, I will run the 5th body post on the new car the same way Matt has his now...regardless of what motor I run.

I added a fifth body post to my TC4 using one fo the holes in the gearbox for the NTC3. I mainly did this to help save the body from cracking the wheelwells. I went thtough the body and use a clip becuase I noticed that when you push in on the front of the body, it tries to push the hood up just below the windshield.

I've downloaded the XXX-S manual, but the bearing sizes is in inches. I'm not good in converting this stuff, maybe you can provide some metric sizes?

Thanks.

yeah using a 5th somtimes even a sixth body post for me is common practice in drag racing. But i would think that stock would not be fast enough. But mabe im wrong.
