    I’m guessing you guys don’t have any plans to develop R chassis front hubs? Advice on having geo 2s on the front and geo3s on the rear? On a R32 going for more of a track set up than drift.

    No we're not planning on doing Geo3 Rbody I'm afraid as it's really small volume. Geo2 Rbody front and Geo3 rear will work fine.

    Just wanted to post a comment on tolerances, on test fitting brand new and a old oem set of bearings onto the geo 3 hubs I encountered two issues. The rear hubs coating is too thick in the central hole for the bearing to go in smoothly, even freezing the bearing it is only possible to start feeding it through by using the bolts to slightly edge in one corner mm by mm.
    The issue with the fronts is the finish on the spindles, these are rough, no questions about it. The first one went on with strong hand force after a slight lube, the second which I took a lot of time polishing with a mild cutting compound and rag, then clean up with cleaner and fresh rags became stuck 1/4 on, rather than destroy a brand new bearing I ended up having to use a press to slowly pushed it down enough to get the main spindle nut on to finish winding it down. Measurements between oem bearings and new were between +\-0.02mm.

    Hi Phil,
    are these magic "Geo camber castor coilover top mounts" (what a word) available, yet? :-)

    Personally I just lightly sanded the rear hub centre hole and the oem bearings slotted straight in. Not ideal but is what it is

    Regarding the front I personally had no issue with that so maybe you got unlucky?

    Will you be getting any R34 front hubs in the near future?
