Default difference u sing the rear 2mm spacer and no spacer

Hi all
what characteristics change when using the rear 2mm spacer behind the wheel hex as apposed to using no spacer and 2mm offset wheels?

I have driven both ways and when using the 2mm offset the Rear end feels to me more secure and stable under acceleration and cornering.

Thanks Robert and Kamikaze Store. Can I clean the bearings first with electric motor cleaner or denatured alcohol? I do have remington oil, as I hunt so that wont be a prob. Which rear anti roll bar should I use (Adjustable or the single bar)? Can I use the solid spool with the front CVD's that come in the kit? Thanks again to Kamikaze for my kits and spools. Havent be able to find the kit and front spool in a while. Thanks again. John

I had my second race of the Forgass Series this weekend at Kissimmee.
The Kyosho V1rrr evo WC, Murnan Jl Red dot and Werks racing fuel performed flawlessly was able the set TQ pace and fastest lap time for the weekend...unfortunetly for the other competitors the race was rained out giving me the Win. Kraceway always puts on a great show big shout out to Kevin and the Crew. Im really looking forward to this weeks Open Champs at Kraceway should be alot of fun. Thank you to all my Sponsors and Uriah Murnan thanks for the awesome pit work you had that JL flying Cya next week.

We will be releasing a lite-weight drivetrain kit for the RRR in a few days. This consists of a 2-speed shaft, front spool and mid shaft. The stock componants weigh in at 57 grams total and the YBslow parts weigh in at 19 grams total. This is a 38 gram savings in rotating weight which we recommend replacing with either our 42 gram or 60 gram brass battery trey.

Thanks,
Brad
