Default Shim at wheel adaptor

Hi all, read about FW05R in Car Action 2004 Touring Car - It is most favorite car. proud to have one

Do you install the alum collar at both of the rear wheel adaptor?
I did installed it but it jammed the wheel adaptor nut so i removed it. When we should install it? And how. Now i need to put washer on top of the outer wheel bearing otherwise the rear tires will have free play about 2-3mm. Is this happen to you all?

I have same problem due to the same cause. Brain, did you than change that hop up exhaust stay back to the plastick one? Mine, the plastic stay mount had strip screw thread. I still use the hop up aluminium stay mount but i plan to trim/cut the right steering holder Any opinion?

I think 3 racing have these with the inner real thin and the top and bottom outter edges abit wider which could solve this problem im ordering my spares and hop ups soon this included will let you know if it works

Hey Mike, I'm told your car is pretty good two wheel drive, just a bit taily in slow corners.

LOL! Guess what, it won't get any lighter. Who knows, maybe it's the reason the car is so easy to drive. It's on rails.
