Wolf- anything FAST!!!!! The new OS 12TR is a rear exhaust motor that might be pretty fast, and have the great 'ease-of-tuning' that OS is known for.

Additional stuff??? The new option parts are cool, but not needed. I have the new graphite parts, the woven graphite top plate, and aluminum brake cam. Again, cool parts, but not necessary.

Buda: sorry to hear it....but, the bright side is you can now convert that extra room to a total race-workshop!!!! FT shaft....the shaft is the same from kit to kit (unless they've announced something that I'm not supposed to talk about....YET!!!) you can just buy a regular shaft or any of the aftermarket aluminum/titanium/magnesium shafts...

Wolfy: you will need a receiver pack. it's not the same as a regular sub-c cell pack, but, instead, it's smaller cells, 600mah normally, or you can go for the 1100mah nimh for the best results. next time you're in the area, stop by hobby people....i can getcha a good deal on one....

Tony this is what I meant check out part number 3924 main drive shaft and 3925 lightweight drive shaft. I used the excell parts cataloge on the AE site linked to TC3 then to code (FT) also how are the aftermarket shafts on is tapered in the middle I guess it would reduce rotating mass but would there be a big differance between it and the AE part? Can you get info on the 3925 from AE?

The 3925 AE shaft never made production. I know it was in the manual but they decided that the stock shaft was light enough already.

The real difference between aftermarket shafts and the AE one are durability. You won't be able to break (most) aftermarket shafts. Downside: (most) aftermarket shafts made of other materials (alum, ti, mag, etc) can and WILL short out your battery if they come in contact with it in a crash. It's a proven fact...that is why AE stuck with the carbon shaft.

Cool thanks for the info. it sure does vibrate so I could use it soon, Other than driving better..HAHAH and the lit diffs and other parts you recomend. Also after tax time I am considdering getting 3000's are they really worth it I have a 17x3 and a 12x2 I was also looking at the INDI chargers does anyone use these a T35 would be cool but its way expensive. And do you know of any good HS that will ship overseas? (stationed in England) Ive used stormer and they seem pretty good

Buda,
Try towerhobbies.com for overseas orders. I've dealt with Stormer Hobbies many times over the last twelve years and they have always had excellent service. Plus they have pretty much the lowest prices around. I would stick with Stormer because of the pricing and service. Tower Hobbies is just another option.

Good luck racing.

Default shaft vibration

Im not certian, but I think you may be able to use the IRS pin cushions on the driveshaft, that may reduce vibes some.

Buda: I think you just got a bad shaft. I got one in my first kit and it was slightly bent. My new one is very straight and doesn't wobble at all. I suggest you just get another one.
