The instructions show a shaded area on the top of each rear hub to cut off for 30+mm wheels. Looks like a fairly big chop, not sure if it would weaken the arm in any way.

Looking at buying the Pro W Fok?
Nah my car is pro spec and then some. lol j/k

So you're saying that the spacer goes between the outer bearing and the hex drive to take up slop? Kawada use to make aluminum (ok for you aussies aluminium ) set up that has spacers like that but also spacer that go inside the upright between the bearings. This way you can crank the wheel nut down as tight as you want and not bind the bearings.

I have some 30mm wheels that I never put on but was also told to shave the rear uprights. Do you have any pics of where?

Danks again!

OK Wfok, here is one of fancy Paintbrush drawings. I did the best I can to copy the picture from the instruction manual. As you can see, the shaded area is what they want you to shave off. It is extremely close to the rear camber link holes, and would weaken the rear upright.

Thank goodness I use a maximum of 27mm rears

The wording on the picture attached is worded exactly off the instruction booklet.

Enjoy

Ok thanks. This drawing is much better than the droop stop grub screw drawing.

I was told to use the inside holes for the links so I guess cutting so close to the outside ones won't matter. I will have to see.

One more thing, I'm playing around with the Hitec Spectra module with a Novak XXtra in the 3PJS and it works. No more crystals and I have all the channels. Yippee.

Don't know if you use 75 MHz in AUS but if you do.....

75mHz is not legal here in Australia

Not only that, 29mhz (my band) PCM Futaba crystals have been out of stock here in Australia for almost 1 year now with still no word on whether they will stock them. What makes the matter worse is 29mHz is illegal in most countrys which makes importing them even harder. We have been 'sharing' PCM crystals here


And yes, according to the standard setup sheet, the inside hole is the one to use

great. lets stop about the breakage arguement.

the rear hex hub spacer is to widen the rear end and to accommodate wider tire.

NR: please post your setup for foam tire as I want to run foam tire at a tight but high traction track here.

Aw talking behind my back now Novarossi.

I didn't start the CA in eye jokes if you remember. It was your Aussie buds thank you.

And besides Moon was talking to me about using a 3rd servo to switch channels not you (see quote) so LOL

Boy I just don't know why the Aussies do everything backwards. Use some band no one else uses so they can't get crystals??? And even the toilet water spins the wrong way.

Intresting question and wayyyyyyy off the topic

What happens in a plane, the toliet flush will spin the correct way (for you yanks) over America, will it begin to spin the 'other' way when you get closer to Australia, if so when and why?
