I have had this problem before and the diff must be worn and I cant keep it to stay tight. want to try a solid axle in the front...how well do they work? will i loose any handleing? maybe go to a gear diff?

I posted and went through this probably 9 months ago...just my problem persists and looking for some fresh thoughts
The 3Racing ball diff is junk and I wouldn't let it any where near my car. The gear diff is OK but needs running in and careful selection of the oil, otherwise you will end up with the same straight line instability.

As well as checking for bent parts and seized bearings, you should run toe-out on the front end, this also helps with the stability.

Interesting. Not currently a Tamiya part number, but it does appear to be the next one in line. Not sure what the point would be of an M06R, though. Maybe a stop gap until Tamiya decides to drop the M07 bomb in a year or two?

Hopefully it comes with some decent shocks instead of the woefully clear plastic items on the PRO.

Not sure if you picked a brand, but Kyosho makes both 300k and 500k.

Looks like the TCS Mini Pro class will be going to 21.5 B/L next year. Don't know how many on this thread race the TCS series, but just posted it as information. TCS usually goes with major manufacturers so all of the speedos and motors should be available from the large hobby shops and from your LHS.

That was the knock on the system used in Australia in that trying to find one was like trying to fins a "speakeasy" in the days of Prohibition. To my very young friends and non USA friends there was a time that alcoholic beverages were illegal in this country. Thus the term Prohibition and an illegal, underground bar was termed a "speakeasy". How products are distributed are a little different in the various locals. What might be widely available in one area may be vastly different in another country.

Seems like a good solution cause the experiment with 17.5s was not totally successful. They were too fast and were too much for the spec tire we were expected to run. They worked better in the "outlaw" races which allowed the smaller 55mm tire which have a lot more "grip". The other problem was they were very hard on the drivetrain and reduced universals to junk in half the time and outdrives were notching on very little run time.

Sorry, "grip" is caveman for traction or the coefficient of friction between the tire and the track surface. Come to think of it, so is "loose" and "slick" in other contexts. But then, I drink my coffee from a "mug", like women with "boobs" and "legs", a fan of "big" cars and "sprint" cars without "wings" on "dirt" but realize it was way too dangerous, and think that F1 is the ultimate form of racing. Altho, my favorites were the "midgets".

Mini PRO 17.5 brushless class succesfully killed. Great job guys - mission accomplished. Now I can peacefully retire from TCS racing w/o regret. Thank you.

Interesting post in that no one "killed" 17.5 B/L in Mini Pro except those who were running 17.5s. The Mini Pro class was offered at the Nats, but no one entered or so few entered it was not a viable class. There would not be any incentive for the organizers to have a class that no one enters would there????

And some one thinks that a 21.5 class would be better? I read the couple of post before this and I would like to give my input on this subject as I'm a avid 17.5 mini cooper racer. I raced in 3 tcs races this year and continued to race the whole summer with the same mini cooper and had no problems with gears or universals. As for the speed I don't see a huge difference in the speed and its certainly controllable even with the premounts which I ran in the 3 TCS races, I won 2 of them and Tq'ed 1, my pace was only 6 seconds up on the silvercan mini's. I continued to run throughout the summer and won or came in 2nd in most of the outdoor racing. If Tamiya is wanting to go the 21.5 route then I'm sure that I'm not the only one that will be done with TCS racing. I raced the silvercan mini's along time and faired pretty well, but after trying the 17.5 I was hooked, very little maintenance on the motor and very little use of my lipo. Just a win win in my opinion.

I'm sure everyone has their opinion and they have that right this is just my opinion.
