i really recommend to try them if you are looking for more steering.

Thanks,

Does HB offers replacement parts for DCJ? How is the wear as compared to the steel driveshafts?

Hiro got me there... I have talked with a few people on Xray that have run them extensively. I'll give a full performance and durability report very soon of our own DCJs.

I can't seem to find any rebuild kit or replacement parts for DCJ. At $70 per pair, it would be too costly to run.

Hi guy's , I have been running the HB dcj's for a few weeks now & hold them in the highest reguard, In my opinion they only inhance the cars strongest atributes (grip in the corners).They help the car carry way more speed through the turn without the chatter or scrubing speed off,An absalute must for the spec racer, YES they are expensive but worth every cent me.
Thanks Adam.

Just ordered some of those DCJ's. I think they will do the trick! Have my lipo pack in and made some trick mounts for weights so I can take out the battery and switch it out without F-ing up the weights.

Spools can work on foam tires... but they are REALLY hard to drive. I remember we experimented with that a few times when I ran for Corally. Chris Tosolini has done it on several occasions... Parts wear out really fast, and the car is pretty wierd to drive.

BTW, if anyone needs a solid foam tire setup, PM me. I have a few that work pretty well.

Turbo-
Just waiting for the rest of my front diff parts to come in for the IIC race. The car has not seen any drivetime yet any I hope I'm not in for any surpirses. I already noticed that all the pro 53 wheels I got rub on the rear shock eyelets. So, there's gonna be a couple of things I'm sure I got to get worked out.

Now that everyone is talking about foam here is my Asphalt set-up. I've been working on it for the past 2 months and seem to endup where I started. I haven't tryed any of the option parts but I can't seem to desire anything more out of the car. It has a great amount of stearing but will not loose the rear end. The car just feels like it rotates so well that I don't need to try any option parts. Let me know what you think or if you see anthing that I should try.
