I would be very interested to see how people go with this upper deck. From all the testing I have done I believe the car will be easy to drive, but have lots of high speed understeer with that much flex. They could have made a little more clearance for the bullet connectors as some packs have them right on the very edge. It does look nice though...

Great to know the top plate will work with TP packs as they're the only lipo's i'll use cause they fit the Type R perfectly.

Hey Guys,

Been away for a few years and it looks like foam is no longer in.

Need to know if I need to buy anything (top plate) to make the car more suitable for rubber tire carpet.

I understand the setups are COMPLETELY different and I am working on that.

Default 7.4 v fan tip.

I like to run my fans @ 7.4v so the donít interfere with the receiver. Also they spin much faster.
I use an old receiver board and connect the two undersides with solder then hard wire to the
ESC battery terminal. Just an idea take it or leave lol


And yes this completly off subject sorry just board today

Default Diff issues!

Need some help guys. I can't figure out what I am doing wrong with my Type R diffs. Just so u know I am waiting to the flyingfox spool and outdrives, but in the mean while I am running stock diff front and rear.

While at the track tonight, after about 5 or so mins of track time either the front or rear diff screw backs out of the outdrive. I re-tighten then same thing again. I ended up stripping the rear one which ended my night. Your help is appreciated.

I solved this problem by taking a 4-40 nut, grinded the edges down, fit it inside the outdrive, as you tighten it up it locks into place against the plastic. Since I did this mod, the diff stays tight and at the tension you set it at.
