Just wanted to let everyone know about our new 12th and 10th scale pan car tire truing adapter. This really helps get a true running tire by clamping the wheel the same way as when the wheel is attached to the hub with the mounting screws. Check it out at www.teamtamale.com.

And a spare set of either 5/64" or 1/8" front axles. #3235 and #1236 respectively.

#3281 Clamping Side links (pair).

#1728 Large D-Ring Axle for 1/10 scale (each). In case you have a big impact involving the rear end.

Post a picture of the car and I may come up with some other items to suggest. What bumper does the car have?

Bill

Hi,

I did a search but could not find it. I was wondering if the Calandra Pro Strut Steering Blocks: Gen-Xi CLN3221 have the same dimensions and geometry as the old associated dynamic strut spindle? Reason i ask is that i wanted to put a crc suspension on a car that was designed for the old associated strut but i got ackerman (too extreme) and some other geometry problems with the standard crc steering spindle (with the graphite #1752 part). Was wondering if the new spindle will get me roughly the same steering geometry as the old associated strut suspension. Maybe someone has 1:1 experience with it already.

We sold out of the new rear pod a while back. I have more material to make some more. I have a couple of other projects to finish up, then I will get back to making some more before IIC and carpet season fires back up.

Loosening of all the screws in each bulkhead after every big shunt will make this piece (1766) last a lot longer. I've actually been loosening all the bulkhead screws and re-tightening after every run lately. Really helps prevent tweaking of the 1766.......

Will your 1/10th tire adaptor work on a Maxi-mod?

I googled Maxi-mod but got doll pictures. If you explain, post a picture I can tell you if it works or not probably.

Someone else emailed me the same question. I depends on the knob that comes with your arbor. If the threads start at the end of the knob, it should work. The reason I supply a 6mm knob is the latest Hudy arbor comes with a 6mm machined knob that has a c'bore in the end and the threads will not engage the arbor when using my adapter.
