i went with the single piece yeah racing pod no chance of pod tweak... first impressions like, one dislike, i like the two wing positions it is a nice tuning option. the dislike is the two locations for damper plate and the spacers that lift it to match the damper location ... not as postive of a mount as i would like

Not ghetto sir, that's Macgyver-ing!



Unemployment, also does wonders for your post count!

I won't say it's impossible, but it may be more trouble than it's worth, unless it's the only option available to you.

The B1 will work fine. I run one and checked the temp right after the 6 minute main showing just one LED. It has a bit more on-resistance than the FX, and the BEC is about half as powerful, but it does the job without complaint. The Hotwire adjustments for those two ESCs have identical adjustments, although the GUI looks different.

I've tried SpeedMerchant Green goo, which is supposedly their thin stuff, but it was far too stiff, made the rear end too slow to react and subsequently jumped around on carpet with foams, three wheeled more often too. Also tried Associated Stealth lube, which was better, but still exhibited the same tendencies, so I am only running it on one damper disk, the other is basically clean. What's worked for you since the sLowbirds?

The Type-B F60 kit tires just made it out into inventories, and the Type-As are due out soon. Fred from Tamiya said the Type-As (softer compound) will be good on carpet and slick or cold asphalt. The Type-Bs are harder, usually reserved for higher bite, treated asphalt or hot days. Which site are you referring to?

Those are the kit tires from the F60 (51400, 51399), which Fred from Tamiya has said are "the Type B" tires, which basically means they are the harder of the two compounds they will release. The Type-As haven't been released yet, which is why you don't see a part number for them. I've only been following Tamiya stuff for about three months, but it seems they usually have two compounds in foam and rubber for kits like this. Take a look over on the Tamiya Championship Series racing thread for more info from Fred (the Tamiya employee who handles the TCS series).
