Thanks.
If you don't already have one or access to a complete Factory team car no. Because you can no longer get the factory team motor mount.

Man, where can I get a CF chassis for TC4? Diggity is out of *all* the aluminum pieces. I have the FT motor mount but can't get aluminum DC4 servo mounts......

Unless someone knows of a substitute floating servo mount?

The diggity chassis has been updated to use the TC7 servo mount. I was the first customer to get it

What? Wow.

Which bottom plate do I order, do all new bottom plates come TC7 servo mount ready? I don't see any reference to that on their website.

Any new order should come that way but the best would be to speak to Damon ([email protected]) just mail him and tell him you want to place the order and ask him what is best way to make sure its shipped with the TC7 mounting holes

Default Solution to DCJ pin slop

Drilled out brass tubing in steps starting at 1.7mm and increasing .10mm till 2mm, seems tight enough on the pin, but I will add solder as extra insurance

Jet racing makes an aluminum c hub that does not need any clearancing at all. Im running the tc7 hub carriers with the 7.1 double joints. The steering is very tight compared to the carbon or plastic versions

It's also great to see soldering that doesn't look like someone tried to trim the wires with a dull beaver.

One thing you may want to check on your cars is whether or not your driveshaft and yokes are spinning true, because if they are off the vibration can eat a lot of power.

Kinda new at this, but I just ordered a tc4 club racer for vta, and a hobbywing 25.5. Trying to get to a final drive of 4.0. Will a 78 spur and 50 pinion in 64p fit? If not what spur and pinion in 64p will get me closest to 4.0?
