ou can also get some wheel spacers, making them out of spare Lexan from your car's body is pretty easy. Tamiya make some 0.5mm and 1mm spacers: T53646 and T53647.
These are better than offset wheel hubs in my opinion.
What is the difference between the spacers and the hubs? dont they do the same thing?

Mine rubs a little too. But once they have been rubbed, they won't rub anymore.

At the moment, I have 2 questions for you.

1. Do you run big or small tracks? How big are they? The FW05R is known to be a small track performer. Look at their FDR and they are minimum at 5.0 with the optional 39T diff crown gear.

2. What about parts support? What about trackside support?

That's the first I'm hearing. I don't think I've heard of any problems like that over here. I've raced mine for like more than 10 liters of fuel already since I got the car and have not had problems with the rear diff. It is still not serviced yet.

Did you replace the diff balls and greased them lightly with the Mugen Super Grease?

Maybe it's simple a case of no stock due to the sudden overwhelming popularity? That's the most sought after body at the LHS around here.

Any body know, or is it just club rumours ??
Protoform has a license to make the Mazda6 and haven't heard anything about loosing it.........just a very sought out body.

and i heard STRATUS also wants to pull the licencing... is it true also?
Protoform did lose the license to the Stratus body but I hear they are working on getting it back and probably will get it back soon.

Yes they do, but as the spacers are simply a disc of metal, then you can put them on and take them off very easily, e.g. if you have wheels which don't require spacers then you don't need to remove the hubs.

Bro, been testing the Suruth Overdrive yesterday.
I can tell you that this man is genius
With 37F and 40R, 46T rear diff, 2.5mm tire split the car is not only easier to drive but the ability to cut the fast chicane is awesome no weaving anymore.
Start with full rear diameter(65mm) after abuot 7-8 tanks the rear became 59.5 and 57.5 in Front !!! Perfectly the same roll out with start diameter.
You MUST try this overdrive !
