I believe I see the shadow of a hole but is there a hole drilled on the side for the battery stop and how much does it weigh?

Yes, there is hole for battery stop. I haven't check weight yet.

This servo holder cannot use with TCXX chassis as they need 1 more extra holes for secure it and TCXX chassis cannot drill this extra hole. (I've checked it yesterday)

Hi,

I am looking for a bit of guidence. My Tcx chassis has has a hard summer lovin on tarmac and as we ware starting to look to winter I was wonder before I order a new chassis plate what everyone has been running.

The options I can think of are the narrow HB option chassis, Exotek soft chassis, Smokem and stock HB chassis. Guidence on these options would be a good starting point for me to go forward, I will be running on carpet this winter if that helps.

Thanks in advance

Liking the chassis and servo mount. How is the testing going with these items and the top deck. Are they avaliable to buy yet? What thickness is the chassis.

I've been using the Exotek soft chassis and top deck, absolutely brilliant!

Does anyone know if the Exotek TC-XS chassis will be okay for the new TCXX. The holes on the chasiis look the same btween the TCX and new TCXX.

I only ask as I want to fit a shorty lipo and the solid chassis with no cutouts would make it much easier. The HB option chassis is 70 where as the Exotek one is 49.

In Hara's tcxx preview video he says the new steering system is moved back 2mm. Im sure if you use the TCX steering crank it will fit but you wont get the extra steering throw the TCXX offers.

Yeah I saw that too. It looks like the arms are 2mm longer but the post holes still seem to line up with the carbon battery stopper mounting holes. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.

Does anyone know the part number for the Gear Diff?

Also will the TCXX motor mount work in the TCX motor mount (Like the mounting holes up and bottom)...

Yes the holes line up, but the lipo mounting holes have moved also. The steering rack holes are 2mm further back. I know this because my TCX is currently on the TCXX option chassis.
At a pure guess the new rack will probably fit an old chassis but you'll have to use 2mm less ackerman spacers on the rack.

Gear Diff Set part no is 68833

The new mount does fit the old car and moves the motor out a little.
