Just got mine a 1 month ago and already had the chance to race it - TQ and 2nd position AMain! I really liked the car but I stripped down the front transmission gears - probably wrong shimming and too much traction. Now I used the suggested by the online tips by HB, plus 1x0.1 on each side pushing the gears to get even closer and hopefully I will have no more problems.

I see some good options on the worlds spec which I really can't wait to fit on, but why the different rear setting with new rear wishbones and anti roll bar? Was this the setting used specifically at the worlds in Japan? The car works great for me as it is. Also I've read about new front wishbones in other posts, but where are they? and the lightweight differential outdrives?

Here is a pick of it!

when you fit the new slipper, do you need to fit a different prop shaft to the front diff?

Not Adam, but I can answer this one....

Yes, the new slipper uses a shorter front centre propshaft.

Just fitted the new wishbones and wide front bumper to my car this afternoon - looks spot on now

Hi Paul,

It's HB61430 - Large Front Bumper/Low Wing Mount stay set which retails at £3.99

The same parts tree is also included with the HB61588 Front Sway Bar Set - £14.99 for that
