what is the difference between the two? The hb part smaller diameter shaft?

The main difference I believe is that the Hot Bodies one has it etched on the dog bone and 1 in the pack, the other is HPI with two in the pack. I have not held one of the hotbodies ones so not sure of any other difference, just that some Drivers used the HPI ones this this season in the uk as no HB ones were released at the time.

You also can use the Exotek ones without any adaptation...

The combo "1.0+" FR w/1.5deg FF that you mentioned is not the same as the 1.5deg blocks combo as the hinge pin width (center to center)on the "1.0+" block is 43mm while the 1.5deg block is 44mm. If you need to widen the hinge pins to 44mm, you still need to use the 1.5deg block on FR. We are also making wider than "1.0+" so we can just simply throw it in without any modification.

Hope it helps.


I hate to start with this again but I would really like to buy these blocks.
Lets say I want the equivalent to a 1.5 deg FF and a 1.5 deg FR but I want to use only the new blocks. Is this possible ? It looks like the "1.0+" are only 43mm c/c and I need 44mm c/c so would I need "2.0+" blocks ?? If so I don't see any listed on the HPI web site.
Thanks.

At this point, I think you still need to run a 1.5deg block FF and FR. HB hasn't released any of the "New" blocks wider than the "+1.0" as of yet.

They are different, as i`ve got the HPI ones from my new car and the pin is much bigger then the HB parts & needed to be dremeled. As well as meat on the drive shaft itself. Otherwise you`ll never get the whole thing into the spool outdrive as it just too big.

:-s)

Default spur

Hoping someone can help , What brand of spur gear can be used in the tcx so you can still properly set the gear mesh. Im looking for a spur in the 90 to 100 tooth range. Im thinking 45 pinion and 95 spur

I do stand corrected, the hpi ones the pin appears to be 2.4mm and the hotbodies 46mm ones (the alu kit ones at least) are 2.3mm.

+1
hpi ones are a perfect fit.
Maybe there is a little but very little difference about pin 2,3 Vs 2,4....but they fit perfectly!

Default New spool broken

Very disappointed...

Hot Bodies TCX-broken-spool.jpg

Used with 44mm DCJ and 17.5 DCJ booster, unfortunately, DCJ are still short, the new out drives are useless .
We need 46mm DCJ .
