Guys... Just a quick FYI

I just talked to Todd and he informed me that both the California and Illinois warehouses have Type R kits in stock. This is official as per Todd.

is there a special smaller size belt when using he 41T spool? or any other modification needed to use the 41T instead of the 42T?

#2.why does my car swerve to the side when at full trottle, but goes very straight from slow rolling start to high speed. but when i torqe it it always swerves to that oneside again. forgot which side it serves too. is my diffs too lose? or is that normal?
You also might want to make sure your spool is good and tight. If there is any slip on the pulley one outdrive will pull while the other takes a bit to catch up.
Peace,
C

RP30 is a great rubber tire for just about any condition.

FYI. Horizon did have kits in stock. They had a system error which still shows as mid-December, but they are indeed available..

The control tire at the Birds last year was a cs27. A little more grippy than a rp30. But both will work fine.

I guess if you use rcd instead of lcd you will be fine. Shaving the plastic takes less than a minute with an exacto I don't think its an issue... I beleive customizing parts is one of the coolest parts of that hobby anyways

I don't mind shaving the plastic, but I did mind missing 1 piece of shrink tube, 1 battery foam strip, and 2 sway bars out of the sway bar set I got. Time to do a little QC training......

what's funny about that is i've been using cyclone cvd bones with losi cvd stub axles on my car. for some reason i haven't had much luck with the lcd's or rcd's. i run on a track with some really heavy wood barriers and was probably breaking a driveshaft once a race day. once i went with the cvd's i've had no breakage.

Too bad you aren't here anymore. We are all going to norcal this weekend. Track is killer for mod sedan and the racing crowd is cool and laid back. All that's really missing is you, Alex, and Dujuan.
