The car looks awesome.

I have one question for you:
Would the diff housings work with a FT kit?

Just thinking that those alloy housings would look great in blue.


edit:Having seen some pictures I'm not sure but it looks like it wouldn't work

ford_racing: Thanks!! Unfortunately the diff housings wont work with the FT kit They are wider and they are designed for the 1/4" lowered drive line. You know it might work if you could drill new holes and added shims, but im not saying it will work at all

Sorry...but if you drive that bad to do all that damage...get another hobby..or just quit this one and dont take up another.

Nothing is indestructible. I have a friend that has an XLR8 and has been into some decent crashes and paint swapping, nothing broken. Lucky? or just a car made from good materials? Could have been both!

If you are brand loyal...stick with it. No need to get into a Pi$$ing match here.

IMO the Diggity car is a great design, and with the right driver and setup can hang with pretty much any TC out there.

Tamiya shocks are very nice. I had them on my TC3's a while back. The TC4 shocks with the V2 upgrade are as good as most of them.

VCS2 Shock Upgrade Kit (part # ASC31123 ):

Most seem to be on backorder for a couple of weeks, so maybe AE have had a problem getting them out, but they're the cheapest and best way to improve your shocks.

Thinks that make you go... mmm. This tends to happen when AE is shipping or producing new kits.

It looks like anywhere online is out of stock of AE part number 31123, but expects them in next week or "mid August". You should check your LHS though. I saw some of these on the rack at my local Hobbytown USA just earlier this week when I went to get some arms.

I was hoping that some mite have some ideas.... I have TC4 tub and I normally have no problems getting this thing dailed in, but this weekend I could not get the thing to work. What it was doing was spinning out when applying throttle. I was running -90 on the throttle curve in the radio. I had greeen springs in the rear and blues in the front, 35 WT oil, Droop 3, ride height 6 (bumpy track) Front diff 1/8 of turn from full lock, rear diff 1 turn out. 2.5 rear toe, 1 front toe out... This was very confussion... I finaly got to to spin out, but not enough time to get going for the race... I had to be careful with the throttle, but before this, if I touched the throttle it would spin out. Also had Zero punch in the ESC.

Is there full drive going to all the wheels?

You might have stuffed a diff bolt (unlikely though if you are able to adjust it)
