Is it possible for you to post a picture of how you have this assembled? Even if it's for a TC3/4.

i'll see if i can put someting together (i switched car brands) but i think i still have a nitro diff here.. we used rubber o-rings that were the same size as the diff rings.. we used no diff balls or rings.. i wanna say the o-rings were #4 or #5.. gimme a bit to see what i still have in the old basement..

The belt runs over the top deck. Swap that and you should be good.

it's your lucky day! i actually had to dig through my trash to get these parts as i'm in the process of moving, but..... i found the o-rings, a diff gear and both nitro diff halves.. the rings which are different sizes are ~.68-.69 (11/16")dia and the other is ~.88-.89 dia (7/8"). both are ~.08"thick.. the bigger went on the concave side of the diff gear and the smaller on the convex side.

Wow...interesting...and that worked well for you? The o-rings never slipped and popped out of the outdrives? Man, the short outdrive looks very strange from that angle...I had to give it a triple-take to actually see the part. What did you use for the thrust screw/balls? Thanks!

has anyone found the front arms in stock anywhere, Also does anyone know if the itf chassis/top deck are set to arive before next weekend, I have a 2 day race coming june 9th/10th and would hate to break an arm and be out of luck, plus I have a nice tc5 built, but have not mounted the parts to the chassis yet as i am hoping the itf arrives in time, both are on order among other parts from my lhs.

Thanks in advance

we just kept the thrust washer/balls and spring as they were from what i remember. i never had a problem with that setup ever, and after i broke a few of the cast metal spools, this was a dream.. infact you could "tune" it to "give" some if you wanted. the larger DIA o-ring fits within one of the grooves in the short diff half, the other is trapped by the gear itself..

I just got back from testing my new ride for the first time. Two words basically sum it up:

F*****G AWESOME.

Stock chassis, stock set up. Novak 13.5, rubber tires on asphalt. Beautifully smooth. A little loose in the rear entering corners, but that will be easily dialed... Only had time for two packs and no tinkering.

Thanks AE!!! Some of my mates who drive 007's/HPI were very impressed. Although it wasn't race conditions, I was all over them like a rash
We'll see how I go in a race...... Winter Champs at Whalan in Sydney, can't wait!!!

Hi Brent,

thanks for the Picture where i can see how i install the O-rings.

On this Pic i can see some intersting settings and i think that other guys will know it also.

1. Why is Juho using the TC4FT CVA bones?

2. Why is Juho using the TC4FT Rear Hubs? I have some of 3 Racing (Alu)here, it make sense to use this ones? Becouse they have more steps for different settings.

3. Why is Juho using the TC4FT Steering block?

4. is it better to have the reciever on the right site, where the batteries are located?

5. Is Juho using the thick Stock Chassie on this PIC?

When Juho is reading this here, i think he will answer all my questions :-)

Thanks guys for the great Support, i think we all will love this car :-)

Greetings,
Marcel

If anyone was wondering about the fitting the 4800 lipo in it. I would go in like this.

This is also how you shoe horn a GTB in the car too.
