Yup me got them on the car.
Fits perfect and a lot cheaper if you have to replace the pulleys.
Also you can experiment with the DR.

I wonder if you have a spare set of Tamiya F1 front wheel bearing lying around?
If so they fit

We sell them both and right now the King Headz is outselling the T.O.P. unit slightly. The KH is cheaper so that could account for some of the difference as they both work fine

I feel quite dumb right now, after fighting with awkward gear mesh while swapping pinions last meet, I just realized something while working on the car today...

You can fit the motor/pinion etc, push tight against spur, tighten everything, then back off spur locating pins screws, and just lift the spur a touch for perfect mesh, you can even go up a tooth without needing to back of the motor again.

So yes, while I did wonder why the spur was height adjustable, never thought of it to set the gear mesh, so stupid me moment.

I find it strange that we always hear about new parts from a retail outlet instead of the company.

Anyway, those look good. The plastic ones are a bit soft. I always feel like I'm stripping the holes with practically zero force when I tighten the screws under the chassis. I keep expecting to see my servo go flying in a crash, but so far it has held on well enough. I'll definitely pick up a set of these just for peace of mind and because they match all the other shiny red bits on my car

Dave, we find it a bit strange too, T.O.P. does not give us advance notice of new releases. The proximity of some of the Hong Kong retailers to the main office allows them to see some parts before we do
