Also, i personally think the composit diff outdrives work better on carpet than the aluminum one. Feels like more consistent traction with them.

Hope it helps a bit.
Thanks,
Hiro, when you say composite outdrives do you mean the plastic ones. I am using the older plastic outdrives in the TC and they are very durable in 17.5. I like them better than the aluminum ones, feels more consistent.

Hi Eric, Yes the plastic diff outdirves. but it is actually composit plastic material so very durable. It is no problem to use even for mod so 17.5 should be no problem at all.

Thank you!

New tcx seems like mainly designed for outdoors...
Huge chassis cuts looks a bit too much ,it's available for a reasonable price but again looks a bit odd to me...
I think they also used plastic diff halves which is again not good...(correct me if I'm wrong)

Default gear diff

Hello Luke

Do you no what andy used to convert to run the tamiya gear diff?

Is it just front pulley and rear driveshafts?

Cheers inadvance
