I don't know if they have any big name drivers running the car right now. To get that you gotta lay down some $$ I would imagine.

Cheers for that I was kind of hoping that they were available separately though.
Never mind could do with the spare parts for the sway bars.

I was told they are working on seperating them. For now buy in a kit or cut the longer ones down.

Hello

In the 3rd round of the Portuguese national championship
I ended up in fifth place in stock class.

I leave here my setup:

I used the Lipo chassi Moderate and rear medium wing.

Hmmm, I seem to remember buying a pack of the short ones at Nor-Cal Hobbies when I converted my cyclone to the TOP suspension. I would inquire there...

A lot of people seem to be very keen to get the new tiny gear diff, after building my first ball diff I also really want one, and I know of others who like me badly want to see what is inside the new one.

I wonder if TOP will release versions for other brands of car?, I know the spec R is kind of large in comparison.


My Photon is basically built now, just waiting for the bank balance to recover before buying the electrics (building new cars up is expensive), that and I have been waiting for the new Hobbywing Xtreme to come out, seems a shame to buy the old version when the new is due out any day now, also need to decide what brand motor to get...

Any chance EJ could comment on the gear diff vs ball diff in his car? Of all the diffs I've built, xray, losi, corrally, and schumacher, the top is the most free, with the corally being close.

I picked up the new Sped-R gear diff ( X-ray T3 version) with the 38 tooth pulley. I need a 38 tooth pulley for the front spool, which one would be the choice? THX

BTW this will change the internal ratio from 2.0 to 1.9.....
