Save you the trouble.

Of course.... different place, different setup....
Why you wanna use Satoshi setup ?

miguel, our lhs does not have the short white springs in stock right now. is your car setup the stock one? did you experience understeer at the 2nd to the last corner before the straight? just wondering, coz mine had heavy understeer at speedzone. but, when i installed the swaybars (swaybar setup of dong), it was replaced with little oversteer. maybe its my tires as i am using cs37s and med inserts.. will try sorex 36s when it wears out. see you at the tracks!

Has anybody run this car on carpet with foams? If so, how did you deal with the wheel width on the front around the camber ball stud? Thanks

Hi chaps,

Just bought the 3Racing rear suspension mount set (0' degrees) and it comes with what looks like a Carbon shim, am I right, and which end do you fit it?

When you try it, if you remember, please PM me and let me know. It looks like a nice choice for a TCS body.

Most people run the 6mm hex hubs to space the wheels out to maximum legal width. That takes care of most of the problem. In addition I took a little material off the front ball cups just to make sure that any 'non true' wheels I might mount up, wouldn't rub the ball cup.

Taking off material is easy. The ball cup plastic is soft. So a gental touch with a sharp X-acto knife is all that is needed. Try to shoot for a 45 degree angle, without cutting all the way through the ball cup.

Then you should have no clearance problems.

In my panic to get my son's car ready at the track I shaved a lil off of the steering knucle to make the ball sit flush with the C hub. Then I did like you said and cut the top off of the ball cup and I still had issues. LOL So, I did all I knew to do and cut( in Darkseid tradition) off 2 mm of the inside of each tire and wheel. My son was running novice and with the silver can motor so the narrower front tires didn't hurt the car at all. I drove it some and the car handled very well straight out of the box. Stock springs and all! Very impressive little car! Especially for $130.00!!!!

I ussually cut the side of the front wheels, 3-4 mm. will not affect handling. just make sure when you cut it use a fresh xacto blade and that the wheel when mounted to the truer is turning AWAY from you. BE CAREFUL, but i's really easy. JUST BE SAFE>>>>>

Thanks! That ended up being what I did to give the clearance needed.

Darkseid--What is the number for the 6mm hex's? Or doyou mean the aluminum ones? Thanks guys
