No problem. Is the speedo mounted in the car yet? I'm going to use a dab of shoe goo instead of servo tape to hold down the big capacitor. The servo tape works but it moves a bit on a hard impact.

I use ShoeGoo on my TC2's cap. I "gooed" it to the side of the case. I've had the speedo come loose, but never the capacitor.

I glue a piece of lexan to the chassis so that when I either shoogoo the speedo or servo tape the speedo to the car it wont' come off.

What in your opinion is the best combination of shock oil and spring hardness for a quite smooth tarmack (asphalt) track outdoors?

Heh! just picked up a bargain!! Got a full graphite chassis with loads of spares- spurs, springs, shock towers, chassis etc. in fact enough parts to build another car, so now I've got 3 XXX's!!
All for 175, its also got lots of the fastrax ally parts, some are still in their packaging!!
Once I've inspected what I've got I may sell on some of the parts, let me know if any of you guys are interested (UK only, sorry)
Pete.

Big Pete, I would be interested if you had a graphite kit for sale. I haven't got many spares and I'd like to lighten my car, not that I need many seeing as I'm such a good driver or maybe it's just a strong car

Sorry, I've just fitted all of the graphite components. As I said lots were still in the original packaging, only thing thats not graphite now are the front wishbones but I'm not too worried about that! all the rest of the parts are the standard plastic, I think I'm going to build a complete spare car and just have loads of spares!!
Later,
Pete.

I thought you'd put all he graphite on your car, I'll have to get a new kit when the latest version comes out
What transmitter do you use? Are there still loads more sticks or are pistol style TXs getting more popular? Everyone here uses sticks (I have a 3VC) only 2 people have pistol grip transmitters and they only race nitro trucks.

Louis, must people use sticks, it appears that the kids are using more of the pistol grip radios- they are cheaper and have limited programmes (well mine did!). I used to have a KO something or other with a wheel but now use a Sanwa Super Exzes (stick, more model memories and better programmes)
The same tranny used for-
HPI Super Nitro
Nitro TC3
Losi XXXs
RC10L3
Schuy Cat 3000
Only thing I can fault with the tranny is NO ABS wich for the Nitros in winter can be a problem! Although it has brake exponential so I can alter how they work.
Later,
Pete.

Oh, one or two things I have noticed about the chassis I bought- front CVD bones are seriously beefy and shiny, anyone know what they are off? and the rear diff outdrives have ally collars around them I assume they stop them from splitting under power? I'll try and post pics some you can see what I mean.
