The steel CVD have a little chatter, but they are more strong, to reduce it a little, advice to remove the set screw and use the universal axle pin cover http://www.hotbodiesonline.com/products/en/68759.html

Thanks dude, I've made use of the method in the past but unfortunately doesn't do much. Definitely reduced the chatter effect but when I use the normal uni drive I have to tone down the turning travel to at least 65% to completely eliminate the chatter. Which is fine when i'm messing around on a non technical track but anything else that extra 35% of travel makes a huge difference. Should just get myself a TT01 again lol, coz as much as I can remember the TT with the stock dog-bone setup didn't chatter at full lock what so ever and it sure as hell didn't cost $30 odd bucks to replace each corner and it had a 5.5T with a spool at both ends.

Hi,

Does anyone make any specific lipo holder's for the TCX other than the the kit (67841) (5) ? at the moment I'm using 4 (67841) (6), two by the belt and two at either end.

Or will this be on a new chassis

im at the moment running the 115 spur and a 34 pinion and that gives me a fdr of 6.60 but i will switch to the 36 pinion and that gives me a fdr of 6.23

another question with 17.5 fully boosted should i run a heat sink and a fan on the motor or will it not get to hot??

depends on what your temping now. I run a fan and heat sink just for extra cooling. If you run a fan, make sure you get a good one.

question... I am actually working on building the new CEFX evo sedan and it uses a sliding rack steering system like on the AE TC3, I know that the Tamiya 416/417 steering system fits but I would rather run the Hot Bodies one. I just don't know the spacing between the two pivots and the length of the steering arms part HBS68735 http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...eering-Arm-Set

If someone could help me out with those measurements that would be appreciated, thanks.

Distance between the two pivot mounts is ~29mm. Length of arms ~17.5mm.

These measurements are from center of screw to center of screw.
