i had the same problem, scrape the threads(on the collar, not shock body) with a hobby knife or xacto 'till it's manageable.

Are you running mod or stock? When I ran a TC3, I couldn't run them in mod or even 19 turn. They wore out so fast from the torque and in mod, they'll just snap. May be a good option in stock though.

John,

How are you getting the AE bones to fit? When I broke a CVD and tried to use a buddy's spare TC3 bone, it didn't work. The Losi diff outdrive was too big in diameter for the pin on the AE bone. Just curious. Let us know your findings. Good luck!

He was saying that when he ran the TC3 the bones were weak...

Next my XXX-S: Been starting the shocks. What do you guys usually set the length of the shocks to for asphalt/concrete? I'm also having trouble screwing on the plastic spring load collars. I get pretty much to where the collar has threads showing barely above it and it's too tight to turn by hand. It went on fine until that point. To my knowlege it isn't cross threaded.
Ok for the shock collers here is what you need to do,get the shock coller threaded to where all the threads are over the body then get a pair of pliers and pinch the shock coller,just make sure not to pinch them to much as you can bend the aluinum shock body. when you do that it makes the threads a lo t easier to turn. This also works with turnbuckles,like say if you are adjusting your camber and your ballcup keeps popping off or its really hard to turn then get a pair of pliers and pinch the threads and you will notice a big difference in how easy it is to turn or adjust.

Let me know if that all makes sense,and if it works for you.

Hey, all, my 1st post in the xxx-s thread whohoo. Anyway, Im reading throught the thread and haven't found the answer to my question: What is the size of the stock orange spur gear and the xxx-s G+. My novak dually doesn't fit where recommended. I was thinking if i can get a bigger spur gear then my motor will be further to the left and away from my esc. Is that a good solution to this problem? Thanks
ps Right now im running a monster stock and the esc barely fits when thats installed. When I run mod, I run out of room completely. Thanks for your time

I run the same ESC. You've got to stand it up on its side. I've attached a pic of my setup so you can see what I mean. Make sure you thoroughly clean both the chassis and the ESC before you apply servo tape, since the tape has less surface area to hold onto. Once you do that, it will stay securely in place.

Then aren't you going to have a big difference in center of gravity? I love all my cars to be low

That would be sick if you get em to come out, Nate should have enough power, he always does...

Just bring out a buggy for her to run in gearbox, she'll still have fun running over pipes and crap, lol.

Yeah, it will make a small difference in CG, but probably not enough for the typical driver to notice. My next big purchase is an LRP QC2 - it's lighter and easily small enough to fit flat in the xxxs.

It will be a higher CG but since you have a big ESC there isnt much choice... unless you are an expert driver you'll propably never notice the difference in CG anyway.
