I'm really stuck now because in changing out the gear box (TD310459) I realize that the sway bar mount is higher then the stock gear box. Now the brace (TD320121-1) isn't able to work because it too has sway bar mount when before the original gear box fit under the brace. Do I have the wrong gear box?

i had a similar thing happen to the front of mine i just bent it back straight it drove badly when bent but is fine now after fixing it, use pliers or multi grips or similar tools

To use the type B gear box in RM you need the type B rear brace TD320270 and top deck TD320269 otherwise you want the old gear box TD310257.

I'm also running the +11 from RDRP. Seems much more stable than the previous shorter chassis.

Not really you can just cut the plastic on the brace out around the gearbox, works fine but you cant go back to the old gearbox is all

What is the weight compaired to stock? Once Surf City is over I will be moving to Mog Buggy and Mod SC. Need to put all the weight back in I took out when I built my all plastic car lol... Its at 1498 right now body and electronics. Plan on putting the 15gram weight under the servo to keep the nose down.

Anyone running 12mm hexes? Which ones did you use and did you have to shim between them and the bearing to keep it from falling out?

I am also curious to know which 12mm hex is the better system.

Proline for the b4. Just use regular ae roll pin and install just as on a b4. Fits fine, no shims.
