What dog bone blades are people using? I tried the Xray 3.5 ones and they are too big.

You can use the crc 10mm shims also(buy 2 packs). Not that I recommend it. Just did it on another TC I had.

I think I found a clever way to mount the battery, (Not saying I am the only person who thought of this). You really should ask me

I don't think I will ever have an issue with the battery falling out. No optional parts are necessary either, nothing to make, just clever use of tape.

So what is the verdict? Is 2 satellite gears in the gear diff enough or is everyone going to 4?

Probably too difficult to explain here, so I will take a picture or two. That would help in understanding it.

Steve

I ran my diff with two gears and it worked fine, I will get more gears at a later time to try it, but I don't see it as being urgent.
