Ray,

If you have a three hole shock tower laying around,
use it for the Ackerman adjustment. Works great....

Talk at ya,

Bill "D"

I asked the guys on rcracing.com and Nanako recommended this place:

Advanced Anodize
38200 Cedar Boulevard, Newark, CA 94560
(510) 494-7979

you may want to check your yellowpages for anodizers in the S.SFO area... call around and ask them if they strip and re-color.. and how much. you should be ready with a count/qty of parts to be done...

Ray,

How are they lengthening it? Just going to the other set of holes on the hubs? I have yet to play with Ackerman. Once I get all of the tuning options out there (suspension blocks) I will play with a lot more settings. I'd like to get some of that arm sweep out the car, but 2.5 seems to be the only block available right now.
RB-I also noticed the same problem with the diffs. HPI changed the location of the spring, to the other side of the diff. My rear diff loosens up quicker than the front. When I built my front diff I greased the spring and extra shim they add in the diff. This seamed to work/slow the problem. If it continues, I'll try to switch the side the spring sits.

My set up is with diffs front and rear.

The TC3 diff spring fixed the issues of the diff loosening. The coils are more spread and the spring is much stiffer.

hm...
I guess i will try that.

Do we have to buy a whole rebuild kit or do they sell springs by them selves?

Default oneway brace plate update

I had Troy (tsr6) testing the brace plate and he reported back with some very promising news.

Paraphrasing Troy's report . . ."I didn't blow any gears today with the plate installed. I took some pretty hard hits too - got hacked - shot into the wall - even put a slight wobble into one of my CVD's, but the gears made it. I took them out afterwards for an inspection, and not even a chip. . . I even went up on two wheels during practice, landed on power, and
they held. . . So far, this is looking really good. . ."


We'll get more testing done and if the gears continue to hold, the part will be made.

Also, I'm still waiting for Shane's reply about getting the Team PRP thread started
