On your fusion photos you have some 35mm foams on the back. Do these fit on the R12 Hub Carriers as standard or have you made other adjsutments. If they do fit the R12 Hubs where can I get some of the foams from?

Thanks for that

Kiwi7....... the hub carriers are from a fusion r-12 I had to put a few shims on the axle so the tire would not rub against the carrier arm  but other than that it was pretty easy to set up. The tires are from http://www.teamcrc.com

I have already got the R12 Hub Carriers on so I will just have to get some shims and order the foams. They look good on your car!

Thank you they grip pretty good on the parking lot that I run on. I am getting ready to change my car again I will post pictures if the modification works. It should make the car more stable at high speeds.

Would be very interested in seeing them, did you need to make many modifications to change engine?

I had to drill some new holes in the motor mounts so the clutchbell would line up properly with the spur gear.
