Having said that, do u run hex adaptors?

Also, are you still able to run the 'stock' rear camber link as it extends past the rear hub.

Not sure how you managed to get them on

please note that the yokomo foam tire is mounted on special offset wheels so it doesnt rub at all.

That explains it then.

Let me re-phrase : Running standard offset rims

Yes I run the purple hex hubs that came in the kit. I have the stock camber links. there were no modifications needed with these tires.

Can you check your parts listing to see what the part number for the aluminum hexes that came with your kit?

Thanks!!! but that blows my theory. I thought maybe Mugen had put the T0124 hexes in the pro kits. I guess not. Now I just have to find the T0124.

Tek

Something else for you to find out.

On the Pro there are washers (I think about 1-2mm thick) that go between the bearings and the Al hex drives. Did Mugen lengthen the axles so the wheels nuts don't fall off?

The wheel nuts are thinner so the go all the way on as opposed to the thicker ones.

Hmmm, I guess what I need is a parts list for the "pro kit" so I can compare part numbers with the older version car. I've got the universals on my car and the axle threads appear to be about 1mm shorter than the stock axles. I can't put any spacers behind the rims unless I use the HPI slimline nuts. Then I have to worry about those pulling through the rim.

The axles on the universals have been updated. They are about 1mm longer on the threaded part. (Don't tekrsq just buy new ones )

Look for the all black ones. The old ones have silver machined areas where the bearings sit.

I too like the flanged wheelnuts better.

Yeah, I apparently have the old ones. They have silver on the bearing races. I wonder if we can buy just the axle part? I'd hate to have to another $60 into something I already have.
