I would like to ask one major question to previous xxx-s owners, why did you change your chassis, what is better in newer cars like TC5, BD5 and so on?

I gave up before cause that droop screws on the bumper. i was racing at carpet track with touring for first time ever, I was struggling with those ever changing droops.

Now I gotr a type R for Carpet/prepped track and brought back XXX-S for unprepped asphalt track.

once you start drooping with shock rod ends, car is still on top of the game.

Default My xxx-S/4

Here is my xxx-S/4. It started out as a xxx-s but would shread a belt ever 4 races. So I swapped arms shock towers cvds on to a spare xxx-4 chassis I had. Wheel base is now adjustable from 255mm to 275mm with spacers for the rear.

One thing I did notice is that the xxx-s Black belt is the same length as the xxx-4 yellow belt. Right now I am running a slipper clutch from the xxx-4 but I can change it with the xxx-s setup if I choose too.

Only thing is I don't know how to figure out the FDR for my setup. Oh well. Heres the pixs.

Well, this thing isnt the fastest car to race anymore. It's a heavy car compared to most, unless you run roar rules I guess. It's really built like a "toy" compared to the newer chassis's out now. So much technology now in the newer cars compared to this thing. Belt skips on braking. Changing a pinoin sucks and/or spur. To get gear mesh right on you need a flashlight. But I still love racing it on asphault tracks because it's closed driveline and ease of adjustments. I still love it though. HA

Yes, they use the same spindle carriers.

Yep, this is total old skool car. BTW it's a GT7 with Trinity Monster Jr's and it still hauls. lol
All the newer stuff goes in the type R. The type R will be the 13.5 class and LRP TC spec.

Default front spool.

Just a question, can i leave the two small bearings out of the assembly when using a front spool and replace them with the plastic bushings from a RTR steering rack? Considering that it is all locked an spins as one anyway, i cant see the bearings doing anything.

Seeing this car is already a flying brick, i thought it may help reduce the rotating mass of the spool.

Any ideas???
