Sorry for the delay i had to work. It makes no difference in handling but it makes the rod ends level + not that I have tried it yet it might keep it away from the other type of pivot blocks ppl are useing

I use Yokomo's blue aluminum ones, then fits.

Wait, could somebody tell me if is possible to change the color of aluminum stuff into purple?

Best regards

Default Setup

Hi

I have now been testing my new TCX for about a month. And my car is absolute the best , when I race with Spool in front , not the spec-r diff. Do any have other ideas ?? Race on carpet in modified. Have 2000 oil in rear Spec-r and have tried with FG lock grease in front , is it because it's to soft , maybe 300.000 or 500.000 oil ???

Thanks
Mike

Hey thanks for the info, I see from the set up sheet Ty was using 'Putty' in the front gear diff. Any particular type? Have used the gear diff in the front myself and it was nice with 500K but felt it still wasnt as good as the spool.
Thanks

Default steering knuckles

Hi,

Which knuckles r the best fit for the tcx, the yokomo ones or the tamiya ones and also what r their part numbers? Do they give a different feel to the steering or r they just stronger than the hpi ones?
