What are the extra set of holes for on the bottom of the chassis beheind the front gear box.??

also did you put that thing on a scale yet.??? in grams and ounces if you can please

I would guess those holes are for the steering, if you want to reverse the swing racks to the other side. Kinda like the first BMI TC3 chassis.I also like the slot undernieth the screw for the saver. Not sure about wieght, But I would think with a couple more holes on the motor side will help lighten it. I still can not wait to get this chassis!

I aggree with you on the making the chassis a bit lighter via. slots or by other means... and possibly a slightly narrower upper deck maybe by a 4mm in the middle ..
but anywasy looks good sor far

Dave-not yet on the scale. I am afraid I dont own anythng accurate enough nor have I painted the body for it. But by Thursday night I should know.

And yes-the extra holes are for opitonal steering rack layout.

Default Re: First TC, parts to go with the kit?

Anyone? I pick the kit up on Thursday... and I know I won't be able to leave it alone for more than a few minutes....

Could someone summarize the 'must have' hop-ups and parts I should also purchase prior to building this car?

I will be running it with a 19T on brand new carpet with rubber tires, ermm and a track that is pretty nasty when it comes to breakage.

I am thinking I should look at something other than the stock outdrives and definitely be picking up spare front arms and a different front bumper. Oh and a sway bar kit.

Anything you guys can recommend for a first time TC buyer would be appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks again

Default Best things to get in my opinion are....

-full graphite kit
-bag of different size shims
-wheel bearings (stock ones crumble)
-Losi wheel hubs, knuckes and caster blocks
-sway bars
-lightened screw set
-spare arms (new ones if you can find them)

Sure they did...When I had lunch with the Easter Bunny yesterday he told me that as well

No one has seen them on the shelf anywhere?

I've checked the 3 shops locally and nothing. One shop was going to send the arms he did have back.
