hello, I need help for an initial setup to run on carpet, I have raced a few races in this surface, but i donīt have more experience, because that here is not very popular these races.

My car is a HB Surikan Edition, but with some updates from TC car, only the blue parts are from the original car, all the rest is from TC.

I tested the setup a few pages back of published STLNLST from Chico Carpet, but I have to test in asphalt, for which I do not have to test carpet tracks, and worked very well, fast response and easy to drive.

The setup is for LRP Car Masters, is for rubber tires and modified motor.

Thanks in advance, Luis C.

It will be nice if the street price of the DCJ is also similar to the LOSI LCD which go for $35 a PAIR.

At $38 EACH these new driveshafts better be "optimized" and provide the a warm feeling of total and utter "luxury"!

Here is the part number and the price.

#67699 DCJ Drive Shaft Set (1pc)
Retail Price: $38.00

*This item is pre-assembled set with dog bone, center coupling, axle and pins.

Thanks,
CV in the auto industry has been a double joint since I started wrenching. Nice to CVDs are finally going to be real CV joints.

What are some other battery strap options besides using tape? Anyone make something, like a velcro strap?

You could use other options but really good strapping tape is the best. I use the black intertape and I use one piece for a full day of racing. Not all tape is created equally. I hear that the Hudy tape is really good too.

I'm just looking for something more permanent and that doesn't peel off the sticker on my lipo.
