I would doubt it unless you are using the FRP chassis without countersunk screws as far as flex goes.

Stripped spurs is usually a broken rear gearbox or bent center shaft. I ran my 04 all summer and last winter in vintage and stock foam with no stripping problem. I am running the carbon tub chassis.

i think i posted my pics though Photobucket...

my 13.5 car is getting a little better and more consistant... the only change i made so far is adding another 1 mm under the rear camber link inside, gave a bit more rotation.

i also learned a little about the lightweight bulkheads last night... doesnt take much of a board hit to tweak severely. every time i smacked a board last night, it would become nearly undriveable... put the standard bulkheads on, and ran some practice laps with it today... got no tweak, and cured the inconsistency i was having, along with gaining another .1 on fast lap, good stuff.

Default old school

great old school car, i always love this layout over the motor sticking to the left and battery laid on the right style, i think the weight distbution is better, X ray T1, TRF414, HpI RS4 Pro2, and my kawada alcyon2, i beleive most of these cars will work about the same, if they all use C hub suspension that is.

wow... i had completely forgot about those guys. i wanted to order the red chassis set long ago for my Evo III. its cool that they still make it. i have one set of the Tamiya SSG stuff, hasnt been run yet, looks very nice!

i think the thing i would like to change is to make a motormount plate with vertical adjustment. when you get to running the smaller spurs for brushless, the horizontal movement sometimes isnt enough. have to beware that the motor doesnt get too low, tho.

hmm. You just saved me 100 bucks. They sure do look nice tho. The 414 is already light weight without the extra light weight parts.

the flanged bearings in the steering piece are 3x6... had to drag out a manual, lol...

for a final drive, our track is about 75x42, and mine with rubber tires is at 4.2.

car is still going pretty well, had an issue with tweak, but its getting there.
