Default Anyone have an idea how to get the proper clearance

so that the spring clears the 26mm foam tires? I filed down the nub per the instructions, but it still rubs on the tire. I'm afraid if I cut more than the instructions say there will not be enough material for the screw. Not only that, but then the shock angle gets way off. What do you guys do?

Doesn't the instructions tell you to "tap the Hole" then cut away the nub completly?

From the instruction book it shows a "red" line that indicates where to cut. It is flush with the arm.

Or you can just run the inside hole..

I usually go furter than the red line like 1.5 or 2mm in the arm and drill the hole furter.

I'm now using the 2deg inboard toe-in rear hub and have way more clearence so I guess cuting the arm at the red line would be good enough.

I haven't verified this, but supposedly the 2 degree outboard rear hubs will allow you to run the outside hole on the arm with foam tires. Can anyone confirm?

You need to use a different pulley. The FK 04 uses a 32 t pulley, while the fk 05 uses a 34 t pulley.

Default WHEEL NUTS

I just saw a pic on xrays website that a guy has an xray that has regular wheel nuts than the practical xray wheel screws. Anybody know a reliable way of doing this mod?

I dont see a reason why to do it. example xray wheel screw nice and flush. Wheel nuts stick out and catch on things such as lane borders and such
