Default LoSixx-S...

didn't you sell your TC4? Just wondering what difference it makes to you.

Diskostew it feel lazy because it's so sloppy. Sloppy arms, sloppy hubs, sloppy, sloppy , sloppy. I did notice the new aluminum blocks help tighen the arms up some.

Default First upgrades

What upgrades would you guys recommend getting rightaway before building the car? I'm looking for the most economically efficient parts that will make a difference on the car.

Default I recommend...

the carbon kit, lighten screw set and change to the NTC3 bumper. Otherwise get some tires and tunning parts.

I did put the aluminum blocks in. it did help a bit. i think the thing that will help the most is swaybars. I hope i can find the by next week the slop in my car wasn't that bad.

Default Lightened steel diff question

Hey guys,
What parts do you need to change the plastic diff to a steel one?
I know you need the regular rings no d-rings, but will the bearings work? and what kind off diff nut do you need? the plastic one that has a locknut in it or do the new steel outdrives have a place for the regular lock nut to fit into?
Thanks
Tyler

What u need are tuning parts like 2 and 2.5 deg rear toe in blocks, 2 and 4 deg caster c-hubs and shock springs. Then ur set tuning ur cars in the track.

For those of you waiting for the swaybar kits just take a long rpm ball cup and attach it to the swaybar end. Then you can feed a screw through the bottom of the arm into the cup. It works but not like the original parts.
