Ive been out of touring for a while now and wondering what advantage these floating servo mounts offer over the standard mounts?

By attaching the servo at one point, you allow the chassis to flex consistently across it's width.

Welcome to on road.
To your question there are so many variables..no one person can give you a definite answer. Tweaked, balance, bad bearing, etc,etc

The best advice I can give is download the manual and tear it down all the way then have fun building it.
As you rebuild check for any possible tweaked parts, etc.

Hi all Just picked up a TCX second hand and just wanted to know what kind of setup you guys would suggest for a small tight carpet track. I dont need it to go super fast but to be more balanced for this type of surface. I have never run on carpet ever.

Petit rc for setup sheets. This thread for info. As for belt tension you need to rotate the cams on the diff front and rear. I think also hb gives two different sizes for a possible 10 setting? Not quite sure

Hi guys. Thanks for keeping up this thread. I have a 2nd hand TCX and one of the steering arms is missing a bearing. Does anybody knows the size of this bearing? I was trying to put a new bearing instead of buying the whole set. Is in backorder wherever I try to buy it.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Do a search in the Hot Bodies website for the electronic manual. This way, you will 1) know about the Hb website, 2) you will have the electronic manual and find all the parts you need. I'd post the manual here for you, but that won't "teach you how to fish".

manual does not show the bearing size for the bell crank
it shows as one whole part number...since the bearing comes installed with the bellcrank.
but they fall out sometimes...

you can only fish if you're in water

from manual
b012 = belt tensioner bearing
b017 = layshaft bearing
b020 = diff bearing
b021 = axle bearing
b030 = outdrive bearing
