Mojoman: Thanks bro, now I have the idea on what to do. I ll be ordering the 52mm Hudy ECS soon. One more thing bro, do you use the xray shaft blades together with the modded outdrives?

The xray blades will not fit in the outdrives without making the slots bigger, which I didn't do and found out that was a bad idea as the bones are wearing my outdrives. At the earliest possibility I will be opening up the slots to fit the xray blades.

Can anybody post a based set up for outdoor asphalt with medium grip? I live in a hot and humid country and usually Sorex 40 is our choice of tyres. Hara's winning TITC 2010 set up will be great too.

I m skeptical about the plastic spring adjuster on the shock body,it does not have the friction rubber like other brands, will it hold its position without turning its self up or down due to vibration?

I was wondering if it was just my case and also happened to others, if it happened to others we must take care not to buy the new kit pulleys 3Racing (# SAK-65J) because it does not work on the TCX.
Really, but when i want to try put 38t on my TC, seems too loose, isn't it?

What do you mean, exactly "seems too loose"?

The spring adjuster are not plastic but aluminum,however does not loosen with vibration.

This setup is for Sorex 36, but it should work anyway.

Thanks for the set up Agno. Do you set any rebound at the shocks? If no rebound do you make a small hole at the shocks top (1mm)? This is what I usually do to my other cars to get zero rebound. My local track is a bit bumpy BTW.

I prefer to have the maximum amount of oil inside the shock, I can adjust the rebound with fonam (with foam= high rebound, no foam = low rebound), I tried the plug hole in shock but I was not satisfied, seems to me that driving becomes a little more nervous, maybe if there are many bumps the hole can work, I've never tried it on bumpy tracks ...

Thank you
The movement doesn't affect anything and will reduce every time you install the shocks because the plastic will slowly compress every time you tighten down the screws/nuts.

And Yes, the optional aluminum shock end ball will eliminate the movement.

I mean the front not rear, i guess rear could be more tight, due front belt is larger.

I positioned the bearing holder to the maximum possible position and the belt is properly tensioned, At the rear, I chose one step less the maximum position getting the correct tension.
