With many "other" brands out there, has anyone found a good example of a Jco shell compatible with TeamC/Venom chassis?

I'm experimenting with the Jco Yoke Finnisher body.

Sometime early Nov; that's all I know.

I heard of people using the Kyosho 2wd body, but don't know any details.

We are looking into the Serpent 2wd now.

Bodies made for the RB5 will fit Team C car - we used them when they were TQ cars.

RB6 Finnisher fits the new XFactory Cube conversion.

No, but they are in packaging and hoping the end of the month.



It's in the green/blue family; basically one step softer than green.



The car already uses 12mm hexes; it's the clearance of the inner webbing that is an issue for direct bolt-on of current wheels. No plans at the moment for specific wheels, but looking into it.



I will try and get something posted. I basically just run setups off the AE site .



Small "y" to the inside has more side bite.



Yes, but Bar Codes are getting priority right now for production .

Just following up on the steering rack. Is the packaging process complete yet? Looking to place an order but am waiting for that one last part to be available

I was actually just walking through the warehouse and saw that they were going through receiving today. So they are now in stock and should start shipping Monday.

That's probably because they are still going through receiving along with many other parts

Hey Paul, does that eliminate much of the excess slop/play in the steering for the 4.2?

YES it does, i have it on both my associated cars, and it really takes alot of the slop out, and is alot smoother making it alot more consistent.

Nice job on the new retro RC10 body. That has to some kind of record for time since the last aftermarket body came out for that. I am most interested in the tires/wheels in the photos. Are they jconcepts products?

Default New ball cups

I bought three Jconcepts steering racks for my 3 2wd associated vehicles. All three have ridiculous slop after only a couple runs. Also I bought three sets of the new ball cups. The longer straight head cups pop off too easily when attempting to adjust camber. I am disappointed in these products. I anticipated them to be products that would enhance my cars. Instead I am looking for an alternative. I think I am going to send these back to JCONCEPTS for exchange for something else.

Did you use chap stick or grease on the threads before installing the cups? Also did you run the cups on and off the turn buckle a couple times to cut threads into the plastic?
