Do any of you on this thread have the following pieces from the plastic parts tree #73510.

I attached a pic with the pieces I'm looking for highlighted in blue.

please pm/email if you have any you want to get rid of. i'd be open to paypal you a small amount for them.

thanks.

How do you take out a completely stripped screw from the upper deck without having to use a dremel? I already scuffed up a part of my upper deck.

You can pick up a screw extraction kit for about $10 at Sears. Once you see it, it's self explanitory.

go to your local hardware shop and ask for an easy out. it is the easiest and best screw extraction tool i have used. all you do is drill out the screw enough for the easy out bit to grab abd all you do is keep twisting the easy out bit and the screw comes out no hassel.

try it it cost me about 5 bucks to buy.

how is it compare to the other TC3 bones the other guys suggested? I see that this is not made of aluninium, so would it be much heavier than the other ones? or the difference isn't really noticable

Made of steel...more durable than aluminum. better suited for the front bone replacement. The TC3 Shiny bones is a notch higher than these black ones.

funny you guys have mentioned this.
I too noticed that due to the batts on one side, the battery side of the chassis sits lower or closer to the ground.

However, I did not use weights to correct this. Rather, I used the tweak board and balanced the car by adjusting the shock threads making sure that the car remained balanced.

Is there a negative to this approach? So far, the car seems to be driving well.

Default O-rings on 'other' portion of setup sheet

I am following some setup sheet and under the shock setup it has a section for other. Most sheets have two o-rings, or some kind of spacers....where are these pieces going?? Inside the shock as a down travel limiter?? Or outside the shock as a down stop?? Any help would be appreciated.

Here is a link http://www.teamprpracing.com/
PRP CHASSIS IS SO, SO, FANTASTIC!!!
Was prompted to order at once but unfortunately the site uses PayPal. PayPal does not support yet the Philippines where I a from. If only they accepted Mastercard without paypal - I would've ordered already.
