I should have used the right name as I have CVD's for the front and rear in the kit, are the rear ones not correct?

They are correct if you want to run 2mm offset which are the rears tires that come with the WCE kit. You just need to be aware otherwise you may order the wrong offset tires and wonder why you have great stability but reduced steering. It's up to you but i have found if for some reason i don't have enough tires at a meeting it is easier to get 0 offset tires from a fellow comptetitor.

B4 is correct. There is nothing wrong with the universals that come with the kit but if you want to run 0 offset wheel (which are much more common) you will want to use VSW007 universals. They are exactly the same as the ones in the kit except they come with a 2mm spacer that goes between the bearing and the hex. If you look back about 20+ pages you will see some pictures of it.

If you choose the correct length screw you can use a distance spacer from the Jrxs c hub to move the screw head up farther so you don't have to grind as much plastic off. I actually didn't have to take much plastic off with the spacer installed. Be sure the screw doen't go through and hit the outdrive. Hope it helps, Mike
Be aware that if you do this you will be changing the roll center. Be careful, this can adversly affect the handling of the car.

Thanks for sharing. Nice ride and pics - plus a few great ideas.

Smile Front Side Pulley... For Newbies like me...

Since building my kit (rrr not wc) a few months ago, I have been using the 23t pulley on the front. And using rubber tyres.

I read that rubber tyres need to be run with the 24t pulley on the front (to rid the car of the over drive), so I changed it over and took the car out to see what would happen.

The difference in handling is phenominal!

The car is now very solidly planted in sweeping corners, much less twitchy under braking, and the tyres actually last more than a few hours, amongst the many significant differences.

I realise this has been said before, but I would just like to emphasise it again, for those, like myself, who may be wondering if the slight overdrive really makes that much difference.

Next I will be changing the one way for a diff, and shall report...

Are the rubber tires the same diameter front and rear?

For the life of me, I cannot find the aluminum rear bulkheads, with the multiple post holes. Anyone know where I can find them???

Robert - It is Chettah tires - Japan. I'm not that sure if u can get it in US. The tires glued well and the rim is tough. Good quality as Kawahara Tires.

Default Sponge and Rubber...

Yes, all the same. The 23 tooth pulley is for sponge tyres, but when i put on the same diameter rubber front and back, it puts the car in a constant state of slide, i guess.

Which brings me to another question. Does anyone know of good rubber tyres that are also cheap? I know this is contradictory but thought it worth asking. I've found HPI Belted slicks have almost as much traction as sponges, but they are SO expensive!

Also, can someone clarify exactly what "shore" means? Yes, I am a newbie.
