i don't know what my rear camber is at the moment because ive just loosely put the car together(i havnt put the main shaft in) so ive jjust set the camber roughly at about 2 degrees.
i will adjust the rear to 4.2mm and 4.5mm and come back and tell you what the rear track is.
what is soo confusing is that i got a pair of brand new out of the box GQ's and on the box it says offset: 0. I wonder if at the factory theve put the wrong tyre in the wrong box???
or is there offset scale backwards e.g 0offset in GQ is really 2 offset?????

oh and btw ive switched back to the stock plastic hexes but i get the same results with vzw010 and the plastic hexes.theres no difference between them except for ones metal and the other ones plastic

Quick question. I have three tanks that are leeking air from under the lid. I know that it is from the gasket getting old. Does anyone know the part number for the gasket and retainer clip.

Thanks for the help.

You need to trim the bumper.

had the same problem-i opted to use serpent gasket and retainer and no more problem a little bit more difficult to install ihad to remove cap from tank and i made the middle part of the clip bigger by using a reamer. if this is too hard for you to do i seen other guys just use 2 kyosho gaskets. hope this helps--good luck

ok now i have another problem but hopefully this one is easier to fix.
whenever i tighten the screw that holds the first gear spur on the mesh becomes really tight. but when i undo the screw the mesh is perfect and the gears spin freely.

has anyone else had this problem and what did you do to fix it ???

The 2speed clutch has to be loosend on the shaft once you do that slide the shaft to the right-->,or slide the 2speed clutch back some then tightn down the screw.

If I understand you correctly, the spur gears are suppose to be mounted on the car (step 26) before you mount the engine and line up the pinion gears (step 44). Not the other way around. You should never loosen the spur gear screw to adjust the mesh between the pinion and the spur gear. Make sure that your piece of paper is only 1/2 inch in width and you are only measuring the gap with the outer pinon and outer spur gear.

Does this make sense? Maybe I don't fully understand what you are doing.

Without the clutch bell on the car.
Do the spurs spin freely in both directions.
Can you push the main shaft left to right or is it tight.
If you push the main shaft towards the spur side and have both spurs on is there a gap between the first gear spur and the retainer.

Yes but not the spur gears , move the 2speed cluch closer to the bulkhead
but dont make it flush against the bearing you want the shaft to move just a lilbit
