[QUOTE=hermanchauw;6289909]Is it legal in a race to put the receiver or esc on top of the battery? I did this in my ta05 drifter and have to add only 10g on the battery side to balance.

It would raise the CG a little but in the stock instructions, it says to put the receiver on top of the servo anyway. Btw my battery is Orion 3200mah carbon edition.

Hi,

Not sure about the rules at your local track, but most places require the speed controller to be attached to the chassis. Receiver on the servo is not a issue, that is where I have mine on my TB. Another thing to think about with how your car is set up now, is that if you race indoors some tracks require you to charge your lipo in a safety bag. So if that would be the case, you would have a time doing that. Hmm or you could just put your whole car in if it would fit

Now that my TB-03D is built. I need to add the electroncis so I got a bunch of stuff for it. Only thing is, I didn't lock the Diffs, I only put them as tight as I could, really tight. To the point I think I could have broken it. I don't how to lock them though, I will learn and do it later.How do you lock the diffs though?

What do I need to max out my TB-03D for drifting? Center 1 way? Locked Diffs? What parts do I need?

I ordered these parts 2 days ago from Tower Hobbies:
-FRC175 RX CRYSTAL 75 75 75690
-Futaba R152JE 2-Channel AM Receiver 75MHz
-Novak Havoc Sport Sensored Brushless System
-Hobbico Extension 6" Futaba J
-Futaba S3010 Standard High-Torque BB Servo
-Integy Motor Heatsink Type II Wrap Around Gun

Let me know guys! Thanks again, the thing is smoother then My Yokomo MR4TC SD CMS by the initial feel of spinning the shaft.

Do not over tighten the plastic diff halves. You will break the centers out of them.

I suggest a spool for the front, aluminum halves for the rear and a center one way for better turn in.

My car pulls hard left on power. I think that is because of spool. I may take it out and see if it still does that with the ball diff.

They didn't brake. I have them really tight though. Will they brake when I drive it or something?

Can I got without lubing up the differential? I noticed it puts a bit of friction but it's still smooth. Can I go with out diff grease?

Center 1 way
A spool??? Is that a hole new Diff?

Aluminum halves?


Also, the stock motor spacer, do I need that? Does it have to be on? The heat might not transfer to the motor mounts cooling fins if i put it on. it looks like this:
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54129

Will I be fine without it?
Where do they have these parts?

I got a set of universal shafts from 3racing, and i want to switch out to shorter swing shafts, does anyone here know if i just get a set of Tamiya swing shafts and use the 3racing wheels axles and cross joints with it?

1) Definitely lube your diff. Good video on building your diff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLoR...eature=related
2) Spool is basically just a solid axle: http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54125
3) Aluminum halves aka outdrives: http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54056

The diff will usually come loose after a while regardless how tight u put it (from my experience)

Get Tamiyas direct coupling(spool) if you want something "locked" and put that in the rear.

Number 3 you mentioned, isn't that the motor spacer?:
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=54129

Also, do I need to add the stock motor spacer? Is it necessary? If I put it on it might hinder the heat getting into the motor mount fins to help cool it off.

I'm running a Brushless Novak Havoc Sport.

How do my parts list look?:

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-tb0...h=595_744_1229

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-evo...h=595_744_1229

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-evo...h=595_744_1229

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-dam...h=595_744_1229

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-tb0...2-p-27896.html

http://www.rcmart.com/catalog/rc-tb0...h=595_744_1229

Or should I got with all 3Racing parts? Are 3Racing parts good? They are significantly cheaper.
