Default Parts source....

I hope it's ok to post shop names here, delete this if it's not.

You guys might look up Speedworld Raceway and Hobbies in Roseville Ca. They had several of the parts that were on the list that was posted earlier a few days ago.... Call them Wednesday through Sunday.

fastener-express rulezzz, Great quality! Very fast to deliver!

I'm quite sure that the DCJ's are not compatible with the TCX front drive train... (they are not 46mm)

I am planning to get the TCX in 2 weeks (coming from a TC chassis)...

What are THE MOST COMMON upgrade parts that I should be picking up along with my kit?

- 46mm HPI Universal driveshafts (for rear only?)
^^is it better to run these with the Composite Outdrives or just upgrade to aluminum?
- MIP CVD Pro4 (for fronts)?

BTW: what is the major advantage of running the 416x diff gear?
I will be running 13.5/10.5

The fronts are now 46mm and the rears are 44mm.....
If you like having to run blades then swap to another out drive, the stock ones have been working fine for the guys around here....

I'm looking for a low-traction setup...

Has somebody some base settings for low grip carpet?

The IIC setups are actually good on low grip carpet. Try standing up the rear shocks on the tower a 1-2 more holes though, and it should keep the back end a little more stuck.

Hi korey just want to ask ive tried hara's setup in our track it was really darn good when the Grip is low (afternoon) however, after the quali when the temp is cold and the grip is high im having issues with that setup. All else equal ( in terms of setup) im experiencing traction roll when the grip is high and im experiencing massive oversteer. I tried making the hex in front at 5mm and in the rear i made it wider at 6mm i stand up my shocks at the rear like 1.5 holes but still having issues. Would u recommend any setup change? Tnx

You should be banned from posting for a week for that. A posting timeout if you will.

I recieve my Sakura Zero "Gear Diff Conversion kit" ^^

I mount the gear diff, no problem, place it in the rear with many spacers (nearly 3 mm) but problems starts with the dogbones... There is NO DIRECT FIT as written before!

The ball of the dogbones is too big to enter the 3Racing outdrives... I bought Sakura dogbones but the central articulation is too small to accept the HB part!

Blades have the same width, so I have to dremelize the outdrives, for 0.3 mm...

In the front, I just mount a Sakura Spool pulley (after having made three holes)

So, to summarize:

- Order Gear diff, diff spacer, front spool gear
- Mount the gear diff
- Add spacers to perfectly place the diff
- Then remove them and make the outdrives holes 0.3mm bigger
- Make three more holes in cross in the Spool pulley
- Mount HB blades on the rear , adjust your belts and let's go!

And don't forget that the internal ratio is no longer 39/20 but 38/20...

If this could help somebody...
