Primus-

Just pick up the XXX Main (I think) Touring Car tuning book at your LHS. That is like the Bible for tuning these 4wd beasts, IMO.

the easy way to make the drive train smooth is just to go buy the TC4 diff cases. they are ultra smooth from the factory without any dremel work at all...

I know that that book explains how to tune your car, tells you what different terms mean, explains what happens when you adjust different components, and generally why your car is doing what it is doing. As to "kitbashing" I don't know but don't think so.

If you're still interested in hosting Freeservers isn't too bad. They use templates which kinda limits you but if you can write HTML you can get around it. I use it for my website and a friends that I built.

The tc4 diff cases are just much better. They have less material where the bearing goes so you don't have to dremel anything to make your drive train spin free. As far as stripping the diff cases, I heard you can helicoil the screw holes. But that is way too much work for me.

Anytime you are re-inserting a screw into plastic always first turn it counter clockwise (unscrewing it) with a little downforce, you will feel the screw "drop" into place, stop there and tighten the screw. You can also try 5-40 screws. Same 3/32" ball driver, just a bit larger, seem to not strip as much. You will need to drill out the top half of the diff case so the screw is not tight.

Hope this helps.

I put these on my dog bones, and I can't seem to keep them from coming out! Anybody else had this and solved it? Super Glue?

it is a metal screw sleave you can tap in to the plastic. I have seen people do it to their diffcases but it is way to much work for me.
