I tried this mod but don't get as good of a swing compared to the slide rack. Do you have any pictures of how you have your steering links shimmed? I race on a tight carpet track.

I've switched up to the Losi front hub carriers and C-blocks. They are every bit as tough as people claim! I can't drive my way out of a paper bag so they have received plenty of abuse. The other big difference, and maybe I'm nuts, but I get much better steering from them as well. My .02.

Do you have the parts numbers by chance?
Are they the ones used on the XXX-s model?

Default IRS Aluminum Outdrive Assembly

I just purchased this and I'm working on installing it, but it appears that the short outdrive cup doesn't have any notches for the nut to fit into. Any thoughts on this from anyone else who might have used them?

With the Losi rear hubs on the TC3 what ball studs should I use to maintain clearance with the tire? I mounted them and used the AE studs. The wheels caught and didn't spin freely.

Thanks!

Would there be any advantage to running composite CVD's in the rear vs. Al CVD's?

The composite CVD's are lighter but would really only hold up if you are only running stock. The lighter material would help you get up to speed a tad bit quicker due to the less rotating mass, but again this would only be for stock. The composite cvd's would not be able to take the stress of mod racing.
