Do you have part #'s and where I can get/look at these items?

not to mention they might take the bottom chassis with it by cracking at the brace post screw holes.

Though I hope thats not possible, coz the chassis looks wicked.

The Braces are there to protect all your electronic gear. It would have to be one heck of a hit to break them plus with them being out of 3mm carbon its some really strong stuff. I would think that you would break the screw or bend the screw before the brace broke. Also they are not up very high so it would take a really strange hit like an up wards or down wards hit to bust the braces off. Anything is possible with an RC car so its not out of the realm not going to happen but I would say its would be VERY strange hit to bust them off.....or just leave them off and not worry about it.

I have been usingand testing the proto-type chassis and its just as wicked fast and it looks. Anyone looking to make the car faster and more consistant and have even more adjustments this would be the chassis for you.

Yeah, real nice... but where can we get them, here in the states? Also, what happened to the Ti CVDs, they were suppose to release?

Yeah for a while i was running the reedy heatsink/fan combonation. I thought it worked well but it did make me glitch . So i was dissapointed about that. were did you position your fan at? if the redd fan would have not caused me to glitch i would have probably had the blue re-anodized purple. Man that would have been sweet

Purple rules!

I just came back from my LHS Sunday race and I broke 2 main shaft drive cups (same ones, the rear one). I was running 2wd for almost half the race. Has anyone had this problem before? I have O Ring spacers in there and it's nice and tight.

How were you running 2wd if the rear drive shaft cup was broken? It would be impossible for power to get to the front. And i cant say i have had any troubles with breaking shaft cups. The only thing i find my self still replacing is front cvd's. I have gone through about 3 sets but everything else is great about the car.

Hudy Winner,

Hes talking about the center drive shaft cup. Not the rear diff drive cup.


DOMOisCOOL,

I normally run very low wind motors on high traction surfaces. I have not experienced this problem myself. Are you running a front diff or one-way?
