E-mail me for how you can get them!! I am sure you can get them from Mike directly at www.readytorunrc.com and I should have a couple sets next week I ordered from him to try. They are not on his website yet-but he has them.

I have ran the IRS Solid Axle and Love it on my local track! I've always used oneways and was skeptical of the front spool. But once I used it, it was amazing! I think it works well here because of the technical turns. I've tried it on carpet at Cleveland and didn't like it much. Went back to diffs up front. So I just think it really depends on the track and your driving style. If you get one, make sure you use IRS pin cushions or just get the IRS Dawg Bones. This will save wear and tear on the outdrives as I've already worn down a spool and outdrive by not using them.

Here are a few photo's that I promised you guys. FT/TC3 with fan, NTC3 steering, extended battery slots, ect. Let me know what you think, and be gental, this was my first attempt.

Here's a close-up of the fan to get you started.

Close-up of the fan wiring. It's wired directly to the underside of the speed control, thru a Novak switch. It can run independently of the speed control. I don't have actual temps, but before the fan you couldn't touch the motor after a heat, now you can hold you fingers on it. Total cost was about $20.

Just another close-up of the wiring for the fan, from another angle. It could be done cleaner, again this was a first attempt.

Close-up of the motor & mounting. Custom made (by me) motor clamp & cam. Both polished aluminum. You can see a few other things in this photo as well.

Here's a photo of the battaries, after moving the slots in to the center of the chassis. I used a Trinity bumper ($5) for the super stiff foam padding (I cut it up to fit). The battaries are way in!

Photo of the bottom "top". This shows the new mounts for the NTC3 steering. It also shows the radiused corners & the wet sanded chassis.

Photo of the bottom "bottom". This shows the longer battery slots, and the larger cooling hole for the motor. You can also see the aluminum nuts that hold the fan on with titanium screws. The entire chassis has had the corners radiused on the bottom, then it was wet sanded smooth.

Super good close-up of the NTC3 steering rack on the car. Use the bearings, I think it makes a differance. I also used Robinson racing ti-pillow balls everywhere. 99% of the screws on the car are blue alum., or titanium. I like to keep the car looking clean & neat, while being light & performing well. As it's been shown the car is easily under 48oz, ready to race, minus the transponder of course.
