It's just the battery load is highly inconvenient you either use the batteries with the deans connections that come from the corners or you have to use the posts and make sure the terminals are far enough apart to fit it once the battery is loaded.
I had the Eagle racing and I liked it. It shaved weight, but no where near as much as the exotek conversion. I am currently selling my Eagle racing carbon conversion (plus some other eagle racing/exotek spares that I recieved in a bundle) Eagle racing builds thier kits and they over-torqued 2 screws and i stripped it, i had to dremel a flat line for a flathead to grab, and there are 2 tiny nicks on 2 of the holes.

The only 2 issues I have with the Exotek conversion is 1: the upperdeck is not level with the lower deck. it opens towards the front. and 2: the steering was binding. I remedied this by placing a .5mm tamiya aluminum shim under the 2 screws that hole the upper steering post support. now its smoother than factory and there is no play.

If you want the carbon reinforced c-hub, you need part #54031

It has been my experience that the carbon-reinforced c-hub is more likely to break than the normal plastic one. It may be more rigid for more precise function but will break on a hard hit where the normal plastic just flexes and survives. Since I am still sharpening my driving skills, I hit things all too often, so I use the normal plastic c-hub

These are normal plastic:
part #51293

To the best of my knowledge, they fit the TB03, TA05, TA06, 416/417.

Thanks a lot guys for the input...

Another question is...is it better of using ta 06 wide or 417 wide....since I'm goin to use ta06 for tc, but the body will be 190mm, so if I use ta06 then the wheel will be inside...

The reason I asking is I have know idea what is the diferent in tracke width with handle of the car? Is it easier to drive with wider tracke wide or shorter...

Thanks in advance...and sorry for my english..hope everyone understand..

Cheers

If I had to use a shorty, I would put it towards the front, as the weight of the motor at the rear might make it balanced a bit better.

I use a full size hard case in an eagle racing conversion, and it seems fine

Thanks Sam! it is just something I am thinking about trying to play with the balance of the car before I play with weights!

Do not get those. 3Racing and Yeah racing make some. the tops can use bearings or bushings and one good tap, the bearing is seized. besides, those are for drifting. 8* ackerman and 8* camber. i run 3 racing arms from a 417 and hubs for a TB03D
this is when I HAD the EacleRacing Chassis. I now have the Exotek.

See, i USED to use them for drift. +12mm offset wheels rear and 10mm fronts...


this is MY baby...

just ordered my TA06 pro kit form stella, got it with the diff cross bars, crp main deck and sway bars.

hoping the crp main deck will be enough to stop the belt stretch when i fire it up with the mamba 7700kv combo i have planned for it...
