hey, i got the new rear hubs(v1RR) and i just realized i had to dremel some of the upright so that the rear tire rim would not be scraping the hub on the old hubs(i replaced both cause i realized that this weakens the hub making it more prone to breakage)

I realize that i can sort of "pop" my wheels outwards and gain about an aditional 10mm in width(which i dont mind ^^)

Do i need rims with 2 mm offset(i have rear universals with 2mm offset)

lol.. i bet this is and i just answered my own question ><

Im having some problems with my brake I adjusted the screw until hold the disc, then I unscrewed a bit to run freely. The fuel line in the linkage is very short too, but I didnt found a good efficiency
I want a agressive brake
Any sugestion?

PS: 3racing disc original pads

what brand of aluminum wheel hexes are you using? kawahara or 3racing style alum hexes eliminates this prob or the kyosho optional silver outdrives with spacer will help . du u have a pic of your rear hubs?

I don't use 3PKS, but just went on Futaba site and downloaded it. Took a glance, check p.74 of your radio manual... Throttle Mode "THMOD"

Hope this helps.

is the popping that occurs in my rear tires normal? ie: being able to pop the rear tires out and gain a few mm of width and being able to pop them back in

in a race which measurement would they take, popped out or popped in? lol sorry for the noob questions ><

Sorry, unfortunately I don't know enough about the RR to answer your questions.... but "popping" tires to alter track width???? No, that's not normal. Something isn't right.
