From my experience dual steering bellcrank is good for MOD cause the steering feel is more precise and not too aggressive while the single steering bellcrank is more direct feel and faster steering response which is good for stock.

Cristian, ended up with a TC5R in a trade. Think I might keep it and come run with y'all occasionally. I assume the bladders will fit the TC5 shocks?

Yes, the bladders should fit the TC5 shocks.

Sounds awesome about the car.

Really impressed with the steering mod on the last page. I'm going to do the same thing to mine.

Fan Mount is just a couple of weeks away. The drive shafts we have not yet received the prototypes, but we will soon (hopefully ).

Also in the works is a battery spacer/Belt tensioner to prevent the battery from rubbing on the belt and make belt tension adjustment a little bit easier.

I looked at the S411 setup but couldn't easily find all parts I needed. The 416/417 and TCX are nice setups also but both look like they need to be mounted to the top deck to stay together. The XRAY setup comes as a package and is surprisingly the cheapest.

You'll have to drill the holes, and can't use the stock battery mounts. I cut 2 tape slots for the battery.

I do have an idea for a setup that might work as a bolt-on (for dual arm and turned servo) but I'll have to look at the car later and see if it'd work.

Nice to see the new products! What about the anti roll bar collars? Are these still planned?

Kevin, the sway bar collars are actually in production as we speak. These will be the next ones to arrive within 3-4 weeks (hopefully less ).

What method is everyone using to build zero rebound shocks? Drilling the cap and leaving the foams out?

Also, product idea: Diff covers like the Photon. Keeps dirt and grit and carpet fuzz out of the diff. Works amazingly well!

A 1mm hole in the top cap worked great for me.it's difficult to get zero rebound but the 1mm hole gets it to around 10% That's as close as I can get them. The TC6 shocks don't have foam like the Tamiyas do. Cristian pointed out that the stiffness of the bladder contributes to not being able to get true zero rebound. the new bladders should fix this.
