Aside from the rear gear diff, I'm not seeing all the difference between this "Hara Edition" and the standard TCX. Can someone post the differences?

As far as I can see, the changes are:

Narrow chassis
Low mount shock towers
3mm top deck
New knuckles and rear hub
Belt tensioner @ bottom?
Rear cvd / driveshaft?
Easy shocks mount - instead of the looong screw.

Pretty much the option parts + new rear cvd / driveshaft and belt tensioner @ bottom - its connected to the servo aluminum mount.

Hiro will chime in and confirm.

Is not a bottom belt tensioner but it is a battery stopper...

I run the JR Z9100S in all my cars and love them. They are very fast, always center and have never failed me even when I dont use a servo saver.

Is it just me or does the rear gear diff look larger than the SPEC-R unit ?

Im wondering if this is to combat the over drive of the front end (one rotation of the front wheel while holding one of the rears, allowing the other to spin see's a difference in rotation length, meening the front is overdriving the rear) ?

I dont think you need to run the Pro4 front arms, though I do find they are better when hitting a barrier they also end up producing to much front end grip though as they are not as harder composite as the standard TCX one's.

Always run 3 hole 1.1mm pistons, never run with hole in cap as most UK indoor tracks need a very responsive car to change of direction.

Love the car though, best car I have driven since coming into touring, and have driven 4 different cars so far over the years. The fact the car hasnt changed much in the last 2 or so years shows it is a good design.

Noted on the Hara though there is no steering brace. I tried this and found the steering to not be as accurate lap by lap.

Like the servo post/LiPo stopper, that is a good idea, and simple. Needas something the other end. I ended up using two cut down composite servo posts, one screwed into the spare hole in the chassis towards the motor, the other is screwed under the ariel mount. Keeps the LiPo off the belt, but bring it in by about 4mm and gets the weight left to right spot on perfect with a TekinRS, MMM, Savok low Profile and IP5800 LiPo's.
