What are some good tires to just mess around on the street.

Hi, can anyone tell me if there was a fix or a Reson for the rear toe being different on each side in a new Biuld, I have a 1.5 deg diff from left to right, I can add shims to make the same, but was wondering if there is a Reson.

Flip the car over. Loosen the split mount screws on the bottom of the chassis. re-tighten while ensuring your driver is perpendicular to the chassis. You'll see it can change the rear toe slightly, depending on the angle that you tighten up the screws holding those mounts.

Alternatively you can buy a single piece block like it has in the front or just use shims to get the toe you want.

My car has been pretty solid with one exception. The spool cups are made out of crackers. find some after market ones (alum or steel) or keep spares (btw - speedctech sells ones by R1 that are good and durable). It's always a good idea to have an extra set of arms on hand too

Mira outdrives are for the Photon to use XRAY ECS..Nikita outdrives are the ones you want for an XRAY.

The XRay version works great too. Just keep an eye on your blades, replace them before they break.

Definitely get the nikita outdrives from sidepiece racing. High quality, big diameter (makes the blades last longer) and perfect length for running 52mm and 50mm dog bones.

No, they aren't. They will work with standard cvds as well.
