Good luck. Either way you wont end up paying for it. You can call paypal and just tell them it was a grossly incorrect dexcription and they will refund you. What will end up happening is you just need to send it back to him with confirmation from usps. This will allow them to see that and they will go ahead and refund you.

Id wait on him a few days though to see if he does a refund cause that will be a tad easier and faster. But if it even came down to it someone from paypal would come out and confirm its a different kit...etc etc. So your pretty much covered.
Just wanted to keep you up to date. I got a full refund from the guy (ebay store) for the auction price plus shipping. I did have to pay $21 to ship the whole mess back to him though. I am glad that the entire issue is closed though.

hello ,

just wondering what advantages do aluminium pulleys give over plastic ones?
i've got a damaged teeth on one of my (plastic)pulleys, and lucky enough to get a spare one from a friend. Is that a good enough reason to go full Al pulleys?

Also, I saw the rear adjustable anti sway bar from hpi, but it looks like too much money for so little metal. any reasons for it being so?

Its not about the metal, its about how many setups they have to do to machine each part.

As far as I know that sway bar hasn't been available for some time now.As it was only offered in Japan to the best of my knowledge.

Concerning the metal pulleys.....depends on where you run. If you run parking lot and like to do some street driving in front of the house they can be helpful. The aluminum ones don't get damaged from stones like the plastic but you will be more likely to replace belts when you do snag a stone. I just did a weight compare on the metal vs plastic for the 22tooth and got 5.6g for the metal and 2.6 for the plastic. If you run on a groomed track stones are not much of an issue & I would stay with the lighter weight plastic. Also beware of the pulley that holds the pins for the brake disc. It will throw the pins out. I suggest using really good epoxy on these & let it cure for the full duration. When it throws the pins they jamb on the rear bulkhead under the brake shoes. This cost me a new 2 speed one way, a new clutch, and a rear belt. I no longer run this as a metal pully. The plastic version should be glued as well but if it throws the pins usually you only replace the plastic pully & nothing else. Hope this info helps!

I have a new in packet rear swaybar that I bought only a few months ago, so they are still in production. One of the best optional parts for the car, even though it is pricey.

Do you have a part number, and where did you buy it from?

the noob strikes again!!

well, actually, I popped my steering knuckle last night, and I lost the part shown in the picture.

is it a generic part, or do I have to get the whole set of arms from HPI again?


2nd problem
initially on stock setup, my rears are wearing more on the inside, hence i decreased camber by 4 turns each side. (sorry, i don not have a camber gauge).
now it is wearing evenly, but the rear of the car seems to like to fling out after long sweeping turns. Any remedies?

car is a hara kit, with the AL mid brace, and mazda 6 body, 35F,35R.
