If you like your car to feel free and aggressive through corners, the lowered towers are something you might like. It moves the piston of the shock further up into the shock body. This reduces the volume of oil on top of the piston, thus reducing pack. That pack makes the car feel really stuck and stable. When you reduce that pack, it makes the rotate more aggressively, at the expense of stability.

Hope that helps some!

yes, it will work, but you need the following

I bunch of diff spacers - so that the Spec-R diff will be centered correctly for the belts..but by adding a bunch of spacers, you need to replace the bulkhead bearings with ones that have a smaller inner diameter - I never got around to measuring what that inner diameter should be, but since the diff is moved so much (since the TCX bulkheads are narrower), the bearing that should have supporter the thicker (close to pulley) portion of the difff floats around...so that's the need for a smaller inner diameter bearings

I put them in my TC, but then pulled it out because there was too much wobble and not enough riding on the bearing

make any sense???

Hope it helps.

I'm using him, and as said Korey, increase in the response of the model in curve and the small shock pack decreases the overheating of tires, great in hot weather, the originals are still good in the cold season and when you want more grip.

I really don't know. They keep finding the current chassis is very difficult to improve upon. So there isn't an expected release date as far as I know.

Thanks for the reply, Korey, in fact, the original chassis TCX works really well, so I think I shall buy one...

Default blinky stock help

I would like to thank all the racer for their help with this car.The factory should do something about the spur problem with most racing in usa is blinky 17.5 or 13.5. These classes use smaller spurs.

Yes, this is true. The original top deck and bottom chassis is hard to improve upon. The HB team tested couple different chassis and top decks but they tell me its hard to beat the original ones. What i would like to see is a narrower variation of the original chassis. Hara was using a narrow one at the Reedy but couldnt tell what thickness it was.

Not sure what kind of track you run on, but the Exotek has proved to be very good in lower traction conditions as well .
