The brushless Volac is just an OEM version of the Sphere, I'm not sure if it's identical the the TC Spec or one of the lower spec versions.

I pieced together a spare diff and added the traxxas slipper pegs into the inner 3 holes. I had to shave some material off around the pegs to fit in the hole, and shave the ends down so they are about 3.1mm. I then put it all together per instructions and I have a pretty tight diff. Tight, but adjustable. I need to test it out on the weekend to see if it will get loose as I put the laps on.

I've been running the LRP SPX stock spec, it's very good. I also like the SP GT 2.0, which is coming out in an even closer to TRF blue (as seen in Marc R's car in Poland) to the LRP

Email RC Champ in Japan - champ_international@yahoo.co.jp. They sell their own brand which is apparently from the same supplier as Tamiya.

Never had trouble with screws backing out from the bottom. I check them every few race days and re-tighten them, but they're never loose. This is on carpet indoors.

Been using the LRP TC Spec, but got a SPX mounted and ready for a go at the next track visit. I'd been trying the Tekin RS, but it felt wimpy in my car, even with new software. I ended up selling it.

These ESC's with monster timing (Tekin, SPX) are interesting. They kick the timing in at higher RPM's, like on the straights. So, in theory, you could take the physical timing out of your motor, and gear it really low so it rips on the infield. Then, when you hit the straight, the timing kicks in and gives the motor an RPM bias, and allows you to achieve maximum speed. It almost sounds like having a second gear. We'll see how that plays out on the short track, but on bigger tracks, I could see it mattering.

1 (update/revision) every year until a 417 is released. I think the 416 will be around for a couple years.

I will be checking them more often now, when I ran the car yesterday I heard the screw(s) scrapping the asphalt. When I pulled the car to look at it I noticed 2 backed out about 3mm and one completely gone I later found it on the asphalt though.

+1 for the LRP TC!
It is excellent IMO, never thermaled it even on hot days. Fast, stays cool, and it will handle anything!
