Not sure if this applies to the 1/8th scale belt tensioners, we've had minor issues with ours and I found a thrust bearing retainer fit the pivot point of the plastic and simply used two small clutch shims to seat it.

Thanks very much. Exactly what I was thinking. Just can't see it making any difference.

It basically makes the front end of the car flex more. This can create more grip and also makes the less edgy to drive.

Can we have a P/N for the RSX one10? If memory serves, there are a couple of variants.

Thanks.

Big bore eye to eye roughly 51.6mm

An "OD" measurement on the shock body would be OK. Can anyone get me that?
Thanks
