The Trakpower gold brick has its connectors in a spot where they would be obstructed by the top deck without some modification. Pretty disappointing that they didn't push the connectors out to the corners like the other brick packs.

nothing 30 seconds with the dremel can't fix You only need to take off a bit of material from the topdeck

Have you had any bad experience with alu screws in the top deck? I dont think those screws will break at impact. I saw so many on Tamiya and tc4... I wouldn't use them to hold the bumper or suspendion arms. But I got your point on how hard it will be to remove them. Time will tell. Thanks for the advice

It was a no no for sometime maybe they make the screws out hard aluminum (like 6065). Just don't crash too hard! lol

Thanks Mojo, just what I was after. I've bought the part and will let people know how it goes.

I'll see how the 0deg caster goes and might have to shim up the front to get a bit of kick up.

Anyone know if I can use the drive pulleys from the old JRXS?

I can't find the type R ones (LOSA 3326) anywhere for sale and the guy I got my type R from only had the spool pulley installed (no holes for diff balls)

Hey guys, can anyone point me in the right direction to get the correct size fans for the R. I can't seem to find any anywhere.

Also what gearing do you reccomend for 19T on an open outdoor track?

Thanks.

Diff pullies are the same size. Only difference is color (white on the old car and black on the new car).

Associated makes a nice double fan combo that is prewired and ready to go. I believe it was for their TC4. Check them out.

As for gearing. It depends on the motor and the track size and layout.

I will be using a Brood Komodo 19T and the track is fairly fast and flowing.

OK. I guess I'm just slow.

I'm trying to figure out how to get 1degree "front pivot" on my car.
The manual is not very helpful though.

It mentions the vairious combinations about different arm lengths and "wide" or "Narrow" pivots but none of them are stated in degrees.

Since there are 3 degree choices on the setup sheet I'd assume that you have to use a combination of the different holes. But wouldn't that affect the spacing of your arms depending on whether you are using the long ones or short??

Can someone please help.

Thanks.

diff pulleys are not the same from the old sedans and the type-r. the hole in the middle is quite a bit larger on the type-r as the outdrive passes through it.

the smaller layshaft pulleys are the same though.
