Everything is out of stock right now. To be honest, I'm really disappointed in the parts support for the new chassis...

Hopefully this situation rectifies itself in the next month or so - I really only need the 46mm bones, so hopefully those are restocked soon...

Unfortunately, as you said new 39T could not worth due larger pitch, so i said before "larger belt in front", just because i think just put 39T gear diff of 3racing could help little with small adjustment in bearing holder even is different pitch, to keeping original pulley in the rear, but you said is not enough and worth, is too tight.

Anyway, thanks from your help!

Could sakura ones of 3racing, maybe HD ones, i heard it's too 46mm with same size of diff cup cushion.
Could Somebody confirm if is possible using 3racing's bones and roller joints, please?

Best regards

Unfortunately the new 39T pulleys 3Racing are not really usable (at least my two), are completely wrong, I noticed that the centering of the hole for the axle is wrong, in addition to the pitch and the diameter of the pulley.

sadly, parts are hard to get for all Japanese touring cars.

Does anyone think that hot bodies will come out with a gear diff to get around all the hack type solutions that people are improvising with?

Anyone know if these will fit the TCX? Any mods necessary?

Thanks Agno. I noticed most setups are running pink springs. Is there a chart of spring rates anywhere? Springs seem to be hard to find in stock, so I have an xray also that I may be able to use something with the same rate if I could get the numbers.

I am also asking but only the bones and roller joint, not the shaft.

the pin is not as big as on the HB driveshaft........

if you have some broke HB shafts, push the pin through, then get your tamiya, 3 racing or what ever 46mm steel shafts, push the pin through, and re-drill the shaft for the correct size pin.

In fact i have describe Sakura's diff cushion could fit in tamiya's bones, why don't we use TRF 46mm steel bones with Sakura's cushion, be possible?

Best regards and Merry X'mas

You know, as I am building my TCX now, i am finding it annoying that the "standard" kit setup doesn't contain the parts that the pros are using as their "base" setup. So not only is the kit $460ish, but now we will need to cough up more money for additional items no matter how small (for ex- 40w shock oil, 3 hole pistons, springs, and they don't even include cheap allen wrenches)
