Default DCJ on front

I use the DCJ 44mm when I use the gear diff in front, the CVD 46mm is too long.
With the spool the DCJ 44mm can not be used because too short

Is that the spec-r diff for the TCX or the other gear diff you got in there??

Because if its the TCX one, then that makes it interesting

For now I'm using 3Racing gear diff, they are still waiting for the Spec-R.

Default Steering Curve

Hi guys,

I was just wondering when racing indoors on carpet what setting people have their steering curve on their transmitter? How exactly does steering curve affect the servo and the cars handling?

They won't fit, drive pin is'nt the same diameter, as said many times before in this thread, only steel option is the PRO-D shafts, and thats it, for a direct fit, no mods needed.

On a further note, any of the other manufactures bumpers fit? Looking for a black one, ive seen a jet racing cyclone one, but only abroad.

Default bumper

bumper
I'm using the Parma TC5 bumper, had to mod/cut down slightly.
Parma also sells a blank bumper so you can cut down to size etc.

Kydex is the trick for the ride.

Litemodz are now producing steel CVA's as a direct replacement for the HB driveshafts for the TCX. Also a lightweight spool and steel CVS's. All fit perfect in my car.
Cheers Malc

See that Hara's car at the titc is using a stiffer top deck, without the middle cut out, i guess to reduce flex reaction in the high grip conditions, i could do with one of them for carpet!
