George be careful with that part your using in the front...I tried it already and for some reason when you lock the front...it causes damage to the one way bearing..because when you pull the pins out the it blows the one way

Rainer nice job with the W-nats List...also remeber weight is determined with body mounted....The Evo WCE I just built weighs 1740...with 62mm rears and 60mm fronts...remeber you take into consideration tire wear..beacuse if your right at the weight limit with big tires and you end your race with small ones chances are youll be under weight and ultimately disqualified

Thanks Robert.

I'm going to have to bring a body next time and weigh the body seperatedly as well as on the car. The tires were freshly cut, so that could also be an issue. Still can't believe how lite the cars are. The titanium shafts are a real weight saver.

If you can't find the Kawahara's just get the ones from Skyline. They are easily available in the US.

You can also use the G4S units, that I have used in a RRR before with no issues.

Those can be purchased at Raceday hobbies. They'll ship them out to you.

Good to know all those old TM parts I have, at least one will be of some use.

So Robert, where are the pics?

As for the 2D, sorry no info here. Rains here from Oct to April, so been inside doing carpet. Once my carpet car is sold, will be looking foward to building the EVO WCE though.
