no,

for about the 100th time, tamiya, top etc driveshafts are not a direct fit, they either need the outdrive enlarging and the use of a blade, or the a blade to be heavily cut down.

I didn't have time to modify anything. Using blades would remove slop because the pins are smaller, but looking at then on a Photon the slop looks the same to me. I will check the next time I'm at the track.

Below I posted my setup, I think is an excellent starting point, makes the model it very easy to drive, then you can gradually move to set up Hara IIC will make the car faster but a bit more aggressive to drive.

Where do I find that editable setup sheet plz

Cheers Malc
ps, just got my ride am building now :0)

Default Non-boosted 17.5

I ran non-boosted 17.5 for the first time FDR @3.8, 93/47. The problem I have in order to change pinions I had to remove the upper deck because of the pinion size and also to adjust gear mesh. I have ordered Xray spur gears with holes. Is there a better way of changing pinions?

Hey,

Does anyone know how much changing the ff and fr blocks from standard changes the front track width for example going to 1.5, 1.5, 2.0, 2.0, 2.5, 2.5? I know it widens it but i was wondering by how much?

any help appreciated!!

I "think" it is 0.7mm per degree of toe.

Default Balance Tool

I just searched this thread for any info without results. Since there is no center hole on the front and rear of the chassis how are you checking weight distribution from left to right? I don't have scales and would prefer not to drill holes.

There are small notches in the bottom of the shock tower, just use 2 allen wrenches.

Morning, Afternoon, Evening

So I'm already starting to replace parts on my TCX and my cousin brought up why don't I just buy another TCX to set a side as spares coz eventually I'll have replace a lot of the parts any way even the bulkheads down to the servo mount especially with the way I drive. Fair enough so I'm planning to purchase another when the price drops but I haven't been in this hobby long enough to know how the value drops or the time it takes. Can someone chime in? Though I must also say that I do look after the car, I treat it like a shelf queen but for some weird reason the same can't be said when the wheels start to roll.

Thanks
