Default Foams on Impulse Pro

Sorry this is off topic guys, but this is where all the action is.

I've just received my 1st set of foams for the Impulse but when mounting the 30mm on the rear the head of the shock retaining screw binds on the inside of the rim, the 26mm front rims bind on the steering levers.

For info the wheels are Arrows, 0 offset, and I'm using the original alloy wheel hexes.

Can anyone offer any advice.

Diesel you need to update the mount on the shock to the ball and grub screw.
Standard on 705,710.
Part# 1255 grub screw x2
1650 Ball x2

the c clip on the 22t pulley prevent me from adjusting it, I guess with the brake pulley you shouldnt see the indention on the shaft that the grub screw is supposed to cover, so I moved it over to where I could no longer see that indention, so now theres still some play but very little, but the pulley at the end of the shaft is no longer flush with the bearing, theres about 1mm space between it but its no longer moving. I guess its OK, if anyone thinks otherwise please let me know.

Goes to show that I either don't pay enough attention to those kinda things or I just plain don't know what's important to win races!

Mark, Pacman is right. The other way for the rear is to move over the lower shock mount onto the rear lower arms. I don't the part numbers but some of the newer arms released already had holes in them for the mounting grubscrews.

The ID of your rear foam wheels should ideally be 47 mm I think. UFRA and Ellergi foams are the ones to use.

Also when I put foams on my Pro, I had to use one of those hex inserts for the front wheels. You will then have the issue of track width to worry about.

Alternatively, use only foam tyres that have the right offsets for the front. Changing over to the FC steering block solve the issue once and for all though.

I got it all sorted now, it appeared to be the rear sway bar links not being at the correct length... must have overlooked that while building

Thanks for the info guys, I've just ordered the ball and grub screws and front oneway and been advised to trim the fronts down to 24mm which apparently works very well.

I don't follow you... There is no C clip preventing you from moving the 22T to the left side away from the left bulkhead. In any case, I have attached a pic below showing the position of the 22T on the layshaft and the 24T brake pulley clearing the engine crankcase mounting. You will find that there is virtually no side play. It fits snugly but yet does not bind the 2 speed hub.

I think it is mentioned on mytsn that all rear lower arms of the 705 / Impulse would include the optional hole to mount the shocks nearer towards the chassis. Please see pic attached. That shock mounting position is actually meant for the optional LSA shock tower mounting.

Yes, that is correct. I have used cut out lexan pieces in the hex shape as wheel spacers.

Just a side note, I did not find any rubbing on the steering linkage or on the steering knuckles with the 710. This is with Speedmind tires which on the 705, it does.
