Cool Newbie (but knowledgeable) with ?'s

Hello all, I have been lurking here for a while. I just got my white Enzo Mr-02 a few days ago. I also got Atomic Mods Titanium rear diff w/delrin spur/ceramic balls, full ceramic bearings, Ver 5 98MM pod, SSG Titanium dampener set, Kyosho 15 degree tires all around (I need some 8's as well), and about 20 other things I can't remember right now. I am building the car for my first race tomorrow (RCP) so I have never even run it yet! I did the Micro RS4 thing years ago and I basically loved it all. I had every possible upgrade out there. So, I want to do the same for my new mini.

Here is what I can't seem to find. I see the tops of a lot of people's front bulkheads and there are two markings on some. The left side will say.05 and the other will read 1.5. I understand that these are probably camber settings. I cannot seem to find this product anywhere. I also am looking to get the alloy knuckles as well. I have noticed a complete replacement front end made out of alloy as well. You have to cut the plastic stock supports to do this. Are there any drawbacks to this? I need to upgrade to the best stock class motor I can for HFAY. I have sourced a Speedy 07BB. I believe that the motor is spec for that class?!

Sorry for so many questions but these answers I cannot seem to find. Great forum by the way! I have learned so much just reading but now I need some answers. thank you all in advance for the help.

As far as I know, there is only one motor allowed in HFAY. Check out the rules on the HFAY site. I believe they had a motor produced specifically for the class from Atomic and is sold through the shop.

As far as the front bulkhead... those are caster towers
Camber is usually done with the knuckle, although there are some JPL tower bars that have .5d caster and .5d camber.

PN Racing marks their replacement alloy bulkheads with caster degree. Adding caster usually takes away turn-in while adding more on-power steering.

There are currently 2 legal motors for HFAY, box stock motors (the one you get with the RTR) and the HFAY Spec motor. They both can be purchased here at the MZR shop.

The top bars with the two different numbers sound like the JPL bars. IIRC, the 1.5 refers to the camber and the 0.5 refers to the caster.

Tagu/JPL tower bar can be found here at the shops site

If you want a whole alloy front and lower alloy bar, you can find those at

Draw backs to the tower bar is added weight.

Well, thank you all for your help. After I posted that I looked over the other posts that were showing other builds. Since I am no stranger to mini/micro scale racing I knew what I needed. So, here is my current list of everything I bought from online stores. I also have a McLaren Gulf set coming as well. FOr now I had to buy some Kyosho 15's for the races tomorrow. I have other tires on the way. I know this is all a way bit extreme but I am so thrilled to be in competitive racing again that I went all out. I know that none of this makes me a better driver, but the Mini will look bad@$$ at the least, lol. This site has really helped me figure out what I needed. All I have to do is tune it tomorrow and wait for the other stuff to come in.
