Its a grey shoe.

VZW229. It is a much smaller clutch so your old clutch shoes wont work with the Shimo clutch.

hey guys, i recently bought evo 2 wc and i was wondering where do you guys get parts from? i had a look on rcmart and they don't seem to have alot but amain does have some parts, though their shipping is abit excessive to australia.

edit - they must have fixed up the shipping calculator lol, it doesn't show up as $50 for shipping for a $5 dollar part to australia anymore.

I use Ashford and Winners Circle. Ashford doesn't do intl but Winners Circle does. Give them a try if you need parts.

RC Champ are pretty good too, although they don't have a nice online store - you need to know the part numbers. I generally use champ or mushroom.

hey guys, i got my car second hand so i'm not sure if this is a problem but the bottom of my front suspension struts rub against the wheel when i'm at full lock either left or right, i've adjusted my end points on my radio so it no longer rubs but the turning circle is really crappy now, is there any kind of spacers i can use to fix this?

thanks.

I assume what you are saying is that when your front wheels are at full lock, the wheel rubs a little bit on the plastic ball end at the bottom of your shocks. If that is the case, dont worry about it. Its normal.
