Cool, now lets hope that they are resistant to heat

It's a pain having to have to run metal outdrives in the tc3 to run mod.

I hope your talking about the diffs, and not the arms.

No, I broke the arm in stock

God, I slammed into that pipe hard. I STILL have no idea how the ball stud broke in the left rear when I hit with the right front But I finally got new hubs and installed them last night, along with a pinion gear. But there was no damage to the ring gear.

Okay, I must be missing something here but why is the servo saver 90deg instead of 180deg like the picture shows???? There is no way the servo link can connect to the saver this way. Were the angles cut wrong on my servo saver? If so, any suggestions for a substitute till I can get some corrected parts? I was really hoping to hit the track Sunday.

Are you using the correct 2 pieces? I'm thinking that if you used 2 of the "top" pieces then it'd be at 90 degrees. Check your parts tree for another part that makes it 180.

Steve, good movie! Car was a little bit loose on the end. Should be better with body. IMO the track is a bit small for 1/10 but very nice for 1/18 scales.

I agree, seemed like a tight fit for 1/10 but for what you had to work with that was great. I feel bad for you that you don't get to get your car up to speed on a track.

It's too bad you found a way to break it though.

Beeb, these are the only parts in the complete kit. The "v" is cut wrong.

That's what I don't get. It comes from a mold, so it'd be one HUGE mistake. My kit had 2 different top pieces and 1 bottom piece, so that's why I was thinking that you had both top pieces together.

If they did mold it wrong that sux. There must be a bunch of kits with the wrong cut out there.

Very surprising.

Doug, check in the big bag. Mine came off the tree, and I found it after about 20 minutes of searching.

I plan on getting my testing started in a week or two here on asphalt. Also thinking of trying a spool, but I dunno if that would be better than a diff or not. We might have to see about getting an "unofficial Team Pro 4" going for the Reedy race
Hi Gary,

I've been doing some reconnosince (sp?) at tamiya the last two months, and I'm gonig to start with these setups:

http://www.teamassociated.com/racerh...eedyRaceTC.pdf

Of course, they are for TC3's but they should be a decent starting point. I think Hara and Thad should be there, so they also could be a good source of setup help... I do plan on running a diff, I don't think I can get a spool quick enough to run. I figure a fully tightened diff you provide more consistent handling.
