So at 490-415$
Is this car the middle of the road, or higher end of cost?

Was this a raised price compared to the cyclone??

Looking at this one and the Associated T6....

what was the T5 like??

Thanks.

Broke both of them.....geeeezzz bro. On the old car steel Tamiya bones worked out. I'd check and see about those if you run into problems with the Top one's.

Tamiya offers a 46mm bone too I believe.

I had a dogbone "redesigned" too last last week-end...

I obviously try the Tamiya but the kingpin are too small to fit the spool...

I've ordered some Sakura parts to adapt the gear diff... Maybe it could be a perfect replacement for our dogbones... And if it does not fit, maybe I can try to adapt the outdrives or the totality of the Sakura spool...

why would tcx make their aluminum axles so weak and not offering stronger option front axles for tcx?? does every tcx owner have to modify other manufacturers axles?

Where are your bones wearing? Can you post a picture up?

With 17.5 zero boost you shouldn't have ANY wear problems pretty much ever.

I've been running mod and 10.5 (with boost) for about 40 runs so far with no wear or broken bones....

What type of grease and anti wear grease are you using?

The bones wear on the slot where the UJ pin goes through. I have gone through one already, the original other one is showing lots of wear.

I am running 13.5T

Hopefully steel 46mm bones will be available soon, at 9 each for the alu ones it is expensive!

I am think of trying the TC 44mm steel versions - as long as they don't pop out

Yes, stock 46mm shafts are showing extreme wear. After two weeks of running at Horsham, the axle end of the shaft is already egg'ed out. I run 17.5T Open.

Does anyone know if the Sakura 46mm shaft a direct fit?
