The tc3 dogbones are a direct fit, has anyone tried the UJ's instead of the CVD's, do they wear any better, any difference. Thanks. Jonathan.

Yea I hate the MIP ones, the holes in mine where the pin goes through just get bigger and bigger untill they just pull through, meaning a new bone (£10 each here ) or the hastle of drilling a new hole.
Id like to try these tho (see attachment). Any body have any experience with these? Are they more durable, lighter heaveir?
Thanks.

I feel you should check the tweak every run no matter what car/chassis you’re using. Preparation and maintenance goes a long way. We use the 2mm chassis for outdoor track and the 3mm for carpet with foams. The 2.5mm is a good compromise between the two, that’s why it’s the standard kit chassis.

Make sure you tightened the spur in an "X" pattern.

[1] [3]


[4] [2]

Or check the spur if it's bent/warped.

Count the number of turns on each screw. If you get it exactly right then it should run very smooth.
