Hey Just want to give thanks to Jim(jag) and Eddie(shorts) for helping me out this weekend at the region 4 champs at ft.Myers...........Was a very fun weekend like always had a great time...The RRR ran wonderfully even though the track conditions were not prime...at times it was over 160 degrees track temp. the parm type m body had plenty of steering..I liked it personally... Got to give props to Jim he ran his best ever at Ft.Myers and this was the first time he used RRR there. Congratz On the 3rd place B-main finish that is Awesome.

I can't remember the size at the moment, but I'll be sure to measure it when I get home and let you guys how big it is.

Sweet! I didn't know they changed it to 60mm, I've always been doing 50mm.

New kit, never run. I disconnected the sway bar and the shocks are matched. Investigation techniques aren't working on my end. The manual calls for 4mm droop, at least both sides will match.

Pretty sure he is talking about the ecentrics......right and left ones that attach to way bar.....

1-disconnect sway bar
2-make sure both ear things ecentrics are pointing in the same direction..they should be pointing towards the tires both exaclty the same..
3-set the droop accordingly with your preferd tools
4-then reconnect sway bars and recheck droop right and left should saty the same.
5-any change from left to right in droop after these steps cahnces are one of the sway bars must be bent...or your ecentrics are not set exactly the same might have to adjut them...
6-upstops are not used....

Hope this helps...

I'll let you off easy this time but don't let it happen again. If I catch you again your fine will be painting me a body.

Nice work on those bodies.

Thanks Robert. You should have brought home the 1st place trophy for the A main. I can't believe your transmitter battery went dead... while leading the race.

A bit of free advice to those of you out there like me... not an expert driver. Find an expert driver then watch and listen. It really helps.

Thanks again Robert. What are we going to do for the summer?

has anyone tried the k factory steel rear universals?
i am putting them on my wce now and noticed a lot of play in the hub,they are not fitting snug like the kit.
what i mean by play is my rear width can go from 200 to 210 because the universal slides back and forth in the hub.

That's not good. My suggestion would be, pull one of them out, put the stock and the K Factory universal side-by-side and compare the two. What is difference?
