What about bearing size since they will have to be smaller.

Thanks
Dear all,

could anyone be so kind and advise the bearing size to use with the front eccentric since they are smaller?

Thanks

I've heard of people using the Serpent 966 front bumper. Not sure about the body mount.

They have both in new softer plastic which is much better, the serpent will work but only 2 screws in bumper. Get the new ones they will last much longer, but if you hit alot will bend you will have to bend back or replace.

Hello

I have a problem with Matrix carbon tires and GRP white front tires.
These rims can move from in to out and back by 0.6mm on the front wheel shaft (the shaft himself doesnt move at all). The problem seems to come from the One-touch Stopper.
What kind of front wheels/rims are you using with your C801?
Or is there an optional stopper for these rims?

Thank for yyour answer

Dj can you share the set up you eneded up with on Kenny's car at the Byrons race? His car looked pretty good by the end of the weekend. Thanks again for taking the time to sign the shirt for my son. He loves it.

From the first day I started racing 1/8 onroad, I was never a fan of the blade style sway bars ( front or rear ). So when I saw that Capricorn offered a real front roll bar kit for the 801, I bought one. Just finished installing on the car and on the bench here it feels very nice. Anybody using this setup and what have your track experiences been with it?? Also will the F1 style bar for the C02 work on the 801??

....(sigh)......Well that's just typical bad P2gee timing on buying parts when new improved ones are on the way. Thanks for the info.

Hi guys,

I have a xray RX8 and I was wondering if anyone knows if the lab c801 shocks would fit an Xray? What are the length of the shock bodies?

Thanks

Questions??

Is the front F1 anti-roll bar/blade adjustable unlike the normal wire bar or is it fixed?
