no, the front drive shafts on the TCX are longer then the TC so the current DCJ's are too short..

Anyone looking for a Cyclone TC with an Exotec chassis and spare parts should pm me or hit the classifieds after Saturday. That will be my last race with mine.

Default TCX to TC/Exotek

Anyone with a TCX that had a TC Exotek care to tell us the difference in handling..

Some of the guys came to the track with a TCX and it seemed allot stiffer then my Exotek Chassis..

Cheers

These are my two models: TC Exotek and TCX




I did some comparison tests and the result was that the TCX is much more stable, very neutral steering and cornering very consistent, has a very "easy guide" unlike TC which is very much "nervous" when cornering.
TCX chassis is more flexible of Exotek

Is that the Gen 1 or Gen 2 Exotek Chassis?????

I have the 1st gen chassis and wanted the 2nd gen chassis to do the belt flip mod just curious if you thing moving the electronics more inboard on the TC would help it.

agno - how do you like the savox servo??

from the looks of it, its a gen1 exotek chassis...the gen2 has an extra cut-out under the front spool/diff so you can swap the belts

The Gen 2 also has a cutout under the motor mount to give some more flex.. would love to drive the cars back to back run like you have..

I have the Savox servo and its awsome for the price.. just as good the the little futaba and allot cheaper..

Cheers

Savox is an excellent servo, excellent performance, aluminum case and low prices,the servo Savox are easily available in Italian shops, however, and available here, but I do not know if it makes international shipping, try.

It has a Exotek gen.1 chassis, personally I not find indispensable flipped the belts in TC Exotek chassis, with standard weights setup, my car is good balanced

cool thanks...A-Main Hobbies over here in the USA just started carrying them - and i figured for the price it couldn't hurt trying considering its $20 cheaper then the s9551 and, i think almost $40 cheaper the the KO low-profile

Default TC - switched belts

I switched the belts on my TC and I am very happy with the result as chassis is now perfectly balanced without the need to add balance weights on the battery side.
Total weight with a 85gr body / Much More wheels, tyres and medium inserts is 1330 gr. Our weight limit is 1350 so I will add about 25-30 gr to be on the safe side.

Very nice i have looked at some of the belt swaps and am i correct that all i need to do it is get the Rear Front block to put in the Front Rear position.

I think i am gonna do this swap on my car.
