Atomic- Not going to the nats. Got to many other things going on at the moment and the budget wont allow it. Good luck tho.

Hi All,

Done some measuring and just like Atomic said, using the wide wheel shaft with the 2mm spacer will make the rear too wide. However, using the shorter wheel shaft (the front ones) the width came out to be just a bit over the 200mm mark. This is done with the stock setup of having a 1.8mm gap between the upright and the lower arm.

So now we have a problem with the rear being too wide. But it is good to know that there is no binding issue.

At least it fits. Where can I get the front and rear hubs? I do need a little more steering.

I got my parts from rc-champ along with my RRR kit. I think rcmodel.com.hk carries the item but they are currently out of stock.

Do you have the part numbers by any chance? I'd like to order a few so I can share with my friend.

Have you had a chance to test the rear hubs? How do they work?

If anyone is in So Cal and need parts, Elite Hobby now has parts.

cvccsi, could the rear arms be shaved down a couple mm. Kind of like what the Kawahara does with their rear end kit? My parts haven't come in yet, so I'm just hoping to help find the right solution. I actually wouldn't mind trying to run it a tad wide. My track isn't very strick with width and weight regs. Hope to here some good news with your testing.

Remember Kidynomite, wider means less grip!

KidDynomite...

I think trimming down the rear lower arm is a must when using the RRR upright... I was getting a rear width of 210mm+..
