Phalen, what is the part # for the ball studs, all of them on the TC4 with the new hex style head, including the ones on the hubs, caster blocks, shock towers, and also how much do you think they would cost, and also how many are in each package, I can't seem to find this info

Default I noticed something about the

chassis. There are cut outs for new fan thingy, but there is not enough surface area to tape my speed control down securely. Ugg......

Nightbreed- Depending on how much your LHS discounts from MSRP, you could look into a set of ceramics or something like Boca ultra seals for the price that AE will retail the whole set for. But then again, some LHS's do better than others. Something to think about.

I have thought about a set of Acer ceramics, but I have read good and bad things about them. Some said the seals fall out, and some said Acer told them to clean out the grease to get them to free up. I don't think so for $100. So I thought I would go with AE bearings since I know they are good. I would like a good teflon sealded bearing like AE's but in a high quality ceramic. I don't know of any company that sells them yet. Any suggestions? Are the Niftech teflon sealed any good? I want something with a good seal for carpet racing. I can always degrease them.

I think I found a slight problem with the new TC4 side braces/camber link mounts. When in place, they do not let you remove the diff from the lower case unless if you mod the brace. At least this is what I have found.... I dunno...

It doesn`t look to be that much of a problem...nothing that a nice file or a few seconds with a dremel can`t fix

how about a team factory hinged battery strap? One that is hinged on the one end and the one end screwed down. Just an idea.

It's not a problem, about 10 seconds on the dremel and now the diffs clear the brace. All ya have to do is cut a bevel or angle into the brace that sits right above the diff. Perhaps a quick simple revision to the TC4 brace would cure this... hehe

Is that both the front and back diffs? How much did you have to take off? I hope they mill out the battery slots for reduced weight. Cough...Cough....

Drumel off about 3mm. in length from the most inside hole at a 45* angle. This should be able to clear the diff and also clear protruding drive pins out of the drive cups, when you're using the IRS bones w' the pin cushions.
