New top deck on Marc's car at the Euro's....

http://events.redrc.net/wp-content/g...inardCar-3.jpg

Extend's the sides back, and does away with the seperate rear brace.

Also notice the 42mm rear driveshafts...

i thought about stripping all my "white" springs so they were all silver.

must be nice to have a pitman like Kiyo to build you a whole new car inbetween heats.

Aluminum 42's aren't production pieces (yet), are they? I run the steel 42's in the rear, but you can get away with aluminum back there. Up front, though, I don't know how they do it.

The single piece top deck is interesting. I wonder if it'll see production? I was building my IIC car the other night, and it seemed like the two pieces were tight against each other, and wouldn't let the car flex normally. Easily fixed with a file, but maybe not immediately apparent.

I seem to remember XRay saying the found the car more consistent with that style topdeck.

Yup, they are. They were used on the original 415 first time round. Steel and Alu f/r, 42mm.
I'll agree with you on the alloy up front... I ain't chancing it anymore, so have steel 44's up there at the moment, with steel outdrives on the spool. I guess it what comes of not hitting anything (!) for a whole run

As for using them, could be trying to get better clearance on the diff nut... I know with the 44mm's the blade runs awful close to the nut under compression... I just shave the blade

Or it could be similar to the off road boys, who help tune the cars with more or less driveshaft plunge, but on the limited travel of a tourer, I suspect it would have minimal difference!

syndrome... yes the 42alums are in production. its the 44s that come in the "tamiya spare bag".

i still run the alum. 44s on the front of my car.. and have yet to break them. *knocks on wood* i am kinda worried that im pushing my luck though. then again i only run 13.5, not 3.5 like the pros do. so their crashes are more spectacular.
