rjl is talking about setting your hubs at the correct distance so your dogbones don't fall out!!

It will depend on the rims u use and the rear wheel axle, on the RR use standard width. I use Active tyres and the rear rims have 2mm offset, with these rims I use the vz13 wheel shaft and standard width hexes.

Nope, No factory support, maybe a few privateers

hey DTM, this is my first car, i guess you didnt know that. Annnyywayys, I heard there's a tendency for the rear dogbones to loosen up even when set up properly, I'd like to preempt that problem; that's what i was refferring to.

Hopups, always wanting hopups

Anyhow here is my opinions on these subjects:

- KFactory stuff, generally avoid.
- Universals, I never had a problem with dogbones or losing them to be honest. If you keep you car the right width and use o rings in the diffs you should never lose them I never have........... Also universals are WAY more expensive than a whole bag of dogbones.
- Chassis plates, get this as a LAST hopup the stock one lasted me 9 months and is still dead straight.
- Get the alloy hex adapters for the wheels as I hate the stock ones getting stuck in the wheels.

My advice for hopups is simple, dont get any. Drive the stock car and see how it goes. Then come back and ask for specific advice if you find a problem. Eg. patella seems to have had a dogbone issue so he got universals to solve it. I never have had dogbone issues but I have had other issues which patella probably has not had so I got different hopups. Dont just buy hopups to solve issues you may never have. If you have too much cash then get what you want

Well said AMG
The only hop ups Iam running are the Kawahara low engine mounts and smaller fly wheel and side belt tensioner.
Seems to me these changes gave the car a lower roll centre and kept the car flatter in the corners under power...

I was just clarifying what rjl had said since you appear to have mis-interpreted..........

PS- if the rear dogbones are falling out....then it was not set up right in the first place!

You're out of luck.......junk the engine and buy a NR, at least it is more difficult to strip 3mm thread compared to 2.6mm!

Alternatively you could try and cut 3mm thread into the OS.........

You could try...as a short term measure....but that screw may only be holding on by a couple of mm of thread engagement, since you have a blind hole there.....so eventually it would give up.

Tapping it out to 3mm would be a good alternative!
