ok...call me dense, but where the hell are you all seeing them?? the pic of andy's car from little higher up on the page don't show them at all

from what i'm looking at, its the plastic part that came in the kit (at least to me)...IMHO, there's ain't anything too 'trick' on his car aside from the shock tower and knuckles

However, they are aluminum stop-bar TC, with old sway bar holder Cyclone Moorespeed.

how does it effect the car when you run the different FR suspension block? i l realize you can essentially change front track but running different blocks (like 3.0/3.0 will widen the front track), but what else does it get you??

I remember playing around with this on my old tamiya surikarn evo3, but never noticed any earth-shattering differences...

hello
i'm from france and this is my first post

i'm a new owner of tcx, my kit is coming at the end of the week

i have read this thread and i see only one problem with the car : the front cvd

do you think option part "67731 - POM Solid Axle Cup Joint" can preserve front cvd from being broken in race condition? the material seems to be a lot softer than original steel solid axle cup joint

i will run with rubber tyre and x12 5.5 motor

thank

I wish I could get my hands on a pair of the POM outdrives like in the picture.

It changes the steering characteristics of the car, it will feel different on the track, guess you need to test and see what you prefer, some like arm sweep, some dont If you change the FR block, you need a different steering knuckle otherwise you will have to dremel the corners of the block as the steering links will hit.

Anyone tried the 2mm down towers yet? If so what did you find?

Thanks,

Antoni

The outdrive POM work very well, more smoothness and less chatter, but unfortunately they are rather fragile, especially when using large apertures of the arms, as 2.5, because the head of the axle shaft is not perfectly inside the outdrive, personally counsel with a maximum swep of 1.5 or 0 is better.

Im guessing to fit the 1.5fr block you have to dremel it so the belt can run over it?
