Different front axles and front arms seem like a good idea for durability, but was hoping someone could point me to a setup sheet and/or any other helpful swaps for a good build. Went through the last 50 pages in this thread and didn't see a good listing.
Get the 3 hole 1.1 pistons, pink springs and that's it!
as for spares wishbones, and steering hubs are the main requirements and if you can find them 46mm steel bones from the drift car.
I am using MIP drives and they are really good, but unfortunately are now longer made.

As for set up, the kit settings are fairly good, just drop the shocks down a bit to hole 3.

I just ran a TCX for the first time yesterday and it ran really well. It was a kit setup with the change of less rear toe, less front arm sweet and camber angles. All the shim spacing and camber length heights were stock settings.
2 hole kit pistons with 40 and 35 weight AE oil.
Pink and silver springs................
I would like to get the nylon drive cups but can't find any. Would also like to get the DCJ's and a gear diff. Can't find those either. Mike Haynes has come up with an option also using a 40 tooth spool from a Photon.

Spare parts needed...... Front end stuff. Arms, c-hubs, and steering knuckles.

The gear diff would use 44mm shafts because it goes at the rear but properly would use the 46mm as well because racers have been using them at the front.

I am guessing that the gear diffs have all gone because the orders were placed when there were two links placed on this site saying that they were in stock. I just managed to get mine on the day they were released.

This is where I ordered mine from http://www.egrracing.com/shop/110-ep...4_157_496.html it appears that they have some in stock. Atleast at this minute they do

Any suggestions on oil weight to start with?

Thanks a lot i just bought 3 , 1 for front, 1 for rear and 1 for spares.

I race using front spool on my TCX, never tried a diff on front on electric touring, would be a good idea to start (low grip track) with 100.000 up front and 10.000 on rear ?

thanks

Hi I normally run 1000 in the rear with a spec r. I go between 1k and 2k. 2k oil gives more rotation, good if the rear is too stuck. On the front, guys are running 300k normally

I recommend using 1K for the rear and minimum 500K for the front.
