I hate those pins as well...am using the 3Racing 0mm offset ones. 3Racing makes 1mm offset wheel hex for the RRR too, never came across any 2mm ones tho..

Does anyone know if, Tamiya's or Hpi's (purple, I know ) 4/6mm will fit? Also, what are the spec on the Skyline versions? Can you run standard / 0 deg. offset wheels without a problem?

Handling wise heavier diff more on throttle less turn in off power...lighter is the opposite

I used the one from 3racing. It allows me to run standard and 0 deg offset without a problem

The Tamiya or HPI ones for their electric cars won't fit. I don't know about their hexes for their nitro cars.

The Skyline ones are of the same spec as the stock Kyosho ones only made in aluminum. It is far superior in strength and quality than the 3 racing ones. I used a set of the 3 racing hexes and they were completely twisted and out of shape after just a few races.

The only manufacturer I know that made offset hexes are Kawahara but it goes out even further. They were designed for the MTX-3 to use 0 degree wheels.

The best way to allow your rear to use 0 degree offset tires is to change the rear universals to VSW007 and not worry about the hexes and the pillow ball screws.

As far as HPI hexes go, I was referring to 6mm version for the R40 - Part #33407

B4: RC Champ is definitely a winner! Placed an order with them today and even with shipping and the PayPal fee, they still came out way cheaper than just the parts alone from the other online guys in HK. We'll see how long it takes to get here from Japan. Thanks again for the recommendation.

Parts only: $50.91 versus HK Web site - $89.30 versus LHS est. $99.36; Shipping & PayPal fee: $17.35

I don't know about you guys but I don't care for the way the stock sway bar is mounted. I'm not a fan of the friction fit.

Is anybody using the Kawahara sway bar now? I think I saw one on Tosolini's car at the WinterNats.

BTW, the Serpent tool will not work. They use a different pitch on their gears.
Have you tested the Serpent tool, because I have and it does fit.

Glad you got a good deal, I would still shop around though as depending on the origin of the part it can sometimes be cheaper in HK. For instance the Hudy setup system is AUD$130 cheaper from HK.

EMS post atleast to Australia is very fast, it arrives to me in 2.5 days from HK or Japan.
