On the bell crank plate it would be the holes that are 4th back from the front.
(or 2nd forward from the back)

What foams are you running? I found that the Parma foams fit without narrowing, and the rim won't rub the steering arm. But, with the new ROAR tech box, the car will not slide in because the front trac is too wide. I took the hex hubs and have removed about .5mm off the outside of the hub. This should make the tires set in closer to the chassis and allow the car enough room to side in the tech box. Only problem; is that the tires now rub on the steering arm. I then removed about .7mm off the inside of the front tires and rim so they won't rub. Hopefully the car will now fit in the box, will see this Wed. I think the JACO rims may have a little less offset and may work in the tech box, without modifying the hubs. But you would still need to narrow the fronts to keep from rubbing.

I run BSR aka Jaco. I put one of the swaybar cups (the ones open on each end) on the top link mount, ground down a few MM from the RPM ballcups I have on the steering linkage, and ground down a MM or two from the steering arm. I'll show you wednesday if you have no idea what I am talking about

No need to fit 415 white belts as Team Bomber make white belts to suit the BD.
I have been running them for a while and are working great so far.

The 415 belts don't fit, different number of teeth.

The Masami car comes with

new design front shock tower - lower than original
new design rear shock tower - higher than original
All carbon - wishbones, castor blocks, front and rear hubs
1 way centre pulley and front
Titanium screw set,shock shafts, hinge pin screws
Precision bearings

I'm pretty sure that it doesent come with the bomber belts

Its very similar to the Grainger kit available in the UK whith the above mentioned changes. Don't worry if you have bought a Grainger kit as nothing is really that different. In fact I would recommend the Grainger kit as its more to spec with the parts that we actually use outside.

As far as I'm aware CML are not looking to bring the Masami kit into the UK, the Grainger kit is more than sufficient.
