Jdeadman, it's not the price of the pad that makes it expensive, it's the priceless time that it takes to keep it working correctly, and endless doubt that comes with such a mod..... On the other hand, the spool is a set it and forget it affair, and you only pay attention to your body&bumper when you hit hard... Voila !!!! Simple and the best solution here !!! No more funny stuff while braking either after only two meets, let alone seven years....
I also run 17.5t blinky buddy not VTA(not really a serious class on the WEST COAST)....lol...

Cool

Ronald Volker says spool(not slipper spool), so you should say spool too....lol.... Don't listen to Bert...lol...
Remember Volker runs a rear gear diff(no slip) on top of the spool(no slip), so why run a slipper spool(slip) and ball diff(slip) in your tc4 .... It would be nice if someone would release a tc4 gear diff in the near future though......

Before I buy a VTA motor, Does this goes for a VTA 25.5 motor as well or just 17.5?

The biggest advantage to building your own slipper diff for a TC3/4 is that you can use the plastic outdrives (to save weight). While it is not the most durable option, it can be used on a more open track where hitting boards isn't as likely.
Dont bother, been there done that, works with drifting tires but not racing. I build my slip spools with lightweight steel outdrives #31062

Ray K. won with a spool/lcd combo, and that's good enough for me.... How many real races have the slipper spool folks won ???? NONE !

Here is the chassis, really not much to show. I trimmed the Chassis to 94 mm width using a Dremel Cut Wheel.

The only legal rotor for USVTA is the 12.3 sinntered rotor. It does real well tho

Help!!! I'm looking for the Ae part # for the TC3/TC4 front spool, is it the same as solid front axle part# 1703. Also I have a borrowed LRP X12 21.5 I am going to try in my TC4 CTA.(Canadian T/A) The instruction manual suggest 3.5/1 for TC. Also max temp 210*. My Ballistic 21.5, Novak says no more than 160*????.

BE KOOL

Yes, the solid axle is a spool, 3.5:1 should work okay for a 21.5 if your track holds some speed through the corners and you're not running a max timing, and 160 is probably just right for good performance.

Yes ,spool and Losi lcd's . No hard bumper , but flush cut axles with the wheel nuts . Which helps protect axles from getting caught on boards . The only problem with hard bumpers ,is they tend to be heavy ,which takes away initial steering .

Yes 1703 is the spool part no#

I would not start a 21.5 at 3.5 FDR, especially a borrowed one ! 4.0 to start and stay away from the max timing slug .
