Was announced to be released with the cut chassis.

I do not know if there is another chassis.

From the first pic, what's with the gold ball bearings on Hara's table? Are those special bearings of some sort?

Abec35 xco's. Just a different color shielding than most brands. Ceramics with orange shields.

Thanks for the info. Per chance would you or anyone know if there are advantages to these vs the standard ones? I need BB's for at least the diff carriers (the large ones supporting the ball diff and the front spool).

Ceramics roll more effeciently, at the trade off of being quite a bit more expensive. I wouldn't say it is necessary by any means to buy ceramics, but they are no doubt the very best option for maximum performance. Abec35's are very good, as are Avid's.

is there a general rule of thumb of oil when using gear diff? front and rear.
currently using 300k upfront and 1000 in the rear. ie thinner oil for low traction conditions and thicker oil for high traction conditions.

At the rear 1000cps is the best compromise, for high grip track or very hot temperature 1500/2000cps, for low grip condition or cold temperature, best 700/800cps.

At the front is good 1000K, also used Putty, but for me no constant operation.

I believe that i mentioned that before but they both will be available. The one with cutout is the kit standard chassis and the one witout cutout will be the option item.

Thanks,

We are not waiting to see who is going to win the worlds as there is no point to do like that. We have developed the new TCXX already, all we need to do next it deliver this awesome car to everyone who is waiting for long time.

I will make another post here as soon as we get the kits arrived here (USA).
Thank you.
