Thanks i thought i might need a low profile one, Ive got a Hitec HS-5645MG spare but when mounted its very close to the belt..

I was looking at a Savox SC-1251MG..

the savox is also a good choice - the same size of the futaba, but 2/3 the price

I just replaced both of my 9551's with the savox servos

the 1251s are great. I love low pros, Especially with my exotek chassis!

Default Spec R

Hi mate just get a Spec R gear diff for the TCX.. have one in the rear of my Cyclone and its works fine.. use it with 2000 oil and its perfect.. just get some automotive silicone sealant to use with it to make sure it doesn't leak.. also u will need to use a couple of shims on the diff to make sure there is not too much movement..

Cheers

did you end up changing the bulkhead bearings?? I ran my TC with dual TCX diffs, and didn't like how slow the car felt...i threw around the idea of change out the bearings since the diff doesn't run on the bearings once everything is all shimed out

I used a wider bearing on one side to take up the slop.. another guy at the track put two bearings in one side and that seems to do the trick too.. also I only put the gear diff in the rear.. not the front.. I like to have the brakes a spool gives.. if ur running a gear in the front.. I would put some really thick oil in there.. like 100K-300K

A couple of pages back u put a pick of ur gear diff in the car.. there is not that much slop.. only a couple of mm's..some shimms would work ok.. just not wide ones.. thin like the hot bodies diff shims..

yes i did, but after looking at the car and running it...the outdrives were not actually supported by the bearings - so the car had a ton of drag

I need to measue the diameter of the outdrives then try to hunt down some bearings..

it will work and has great potiential - but you need to replace the bulkhead bearings with smaller inner diameter bearings to REALLY make it work

If you have the dimensions and/or part # for ordering the bearings, please post them. Would like to do this without having to use a bunch of shims.

Sounds like too much power to the rear wheels, front lifting too high, maybe adjust your front droop.

XXX main chassis set up book is a good reference.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Flanged bearing + plastic bearing holders from tc with few shims will do the trick. You have to rearange centar pulleys.
