TRD = Tamiya Racing Domination!!!

I've been having a few issues with my spool. First I had a tendency to rim the cups on some hits. But that's been fixed with 46mm shafts and slightly better driving. I recently started running a 6.5 instead of a 10.5. In my last rebuild, the channels on one spool cup had partially filled up with melted plastic!!! Anybody else having issues with the Tamiya spool???

X-D and A-E would give you 2 degrees. But if you have 44mm driveshafts there is a small chance the blade can bottom out against the diff nut with X-D. No problems if you have 42mm driveshafts.

Look at TryHards website http://www.thard.co.uk/ There you can find a form with all the suspension blocks so you can see how they combine.
You can set up the same toe-in with different suspension mounts, but with varying width.

Had that same problem when the outdoor season started here and I was running modified. Adding some grease to the cup seems to fix the melting problem.

Square has released some new black center pulleys for the TA05/v2 (same pulley as 416). There is a 20T and a massive 22T! Looks like they are available at RC Market.

Looks very interesting, and as the 416 belts are very short, it should not be difficult finding a longer belt to accomodate them.

I have just preordered a T3, i might have to throw some in if in stock when it arrives.

hello all, inspired by the recent ets i decided to try and copy the way marc rheinard had his lipo in place so i came up with this:
as you can see in the pics i used a battery bar and a bullet plug and tube but i also used a 3mm screw to secure the bullet male plug in place so it doesnt move around when i connect/diconnect the plug. hope ya'll like

Pretty clever! It seems like EFRA mandating internal plugs is a bit of hassle for most folks. I know they're unruly, but I kind of like my Deans plugs a little more now.

thanks
whats silly for me is why i didnt come up with this when i first bought the pack? instead of shaving down the humps i could have just done this mod but i had opted to position the batt out more to clear the top deck. i tell you why, cause im lazy.

Try these spool from Titanium Racing. Their Delrin cups are a lot stronger and more durable. Hope it helps.
