Try this, to shim the narrowed diff:

We were racing cyclone this weekend and after some crashes changed all the arms to spec-r ones from s1. They are much-much more durable. All the sizes are the same, the only thing is different size of balls for swaybars - you need spec-r or X-ray cups.
I really don't like tc because of the battery (very narrow) and top deck.
Many things changed in TCs.

Hey trinity, I apologize for being a typical one language American, but you you give the highlights of that mod in English.

Hello,
Of course.

- Front and rear gear diff (sakura zero s) steel outdrives. You must to build custom spacers to fit well those diff. (I made my own spacers in a lathe).
- You must to add a rear belt tensioner because diff gear came with 38t instead 39t.
- Sakura zero s steel drive shaft 44 mm.
- Exotek lipo chassis.
- I also cut the top deck front stiffeners because i never use them.

That's all. Sorry for my english, i think isn't good enough.

Regards
