Here is mine with the new TIR spool and the TIR front CVD's. The only thing about these CVD's is that the threads for the wheelnuts are different. This spool is pretty darn solid compared to what I am used to from the Pro 4

Interesting to hear that the threads on the axle are different. The ones for my Pro 4 use a normal M4 nut like the Cyclone...

I happen to like the purple so I swapped the shocks with my Pro4 before I sold it.

Seems like these CVD's uses standard threads. It meant I couldn't fit the nice purple wheel nuts on there.

Does the front belt touch anywhere as was mentioned a few pages before, as i am going to build mine soon and rather want to file the chassis now rather than when its been assembled

do you have in the usa some other threads then here in europe ? we have here also purple wheel nuts and that fits on anything this is weird.

my front belt doesn't touch anything so i think youre fine, have fun building it it's simpel if you already built a pro4 or a other TC

If you meant the threads on the TIR axles then yes the nuts are very tight, the threads have been cut a little wrong but measure as standard 4mm threads.
The threads on the standard axles are standard metric threads and the nuts foit normally.
US produced cars have imperial threads which are very different!

Yes you will hav to file out abit of the front cutout underneath the front 1way pully as the belt rubs on it. The best way to do it is just get a slightly rounded file and put it in parallel to the sides of the chassis and bevel the slot.

Hope this helps Phil.

I noticed on Hara's car at the recent JMRCA
the front drives are MIP's. the rears are kit stock CV's.

Actually I think they're Titanium Racing CVD's (see colour of front wheel axle).
