Probably not exactly what you guys wanted to hear with it possibly being a while, but at least they know about the problem and are fixing it!

For right now just look at the hubs. If the drill path is all cattywhompus then look for another set. Clint had a great solution, and the 3 Racing hub Carriers are also a good alternative.

you know the FBI is looking for me......no real names.. The 3 racing would be the best choice if you don't want to modify the rear arms and wish to run your camber links at the exact same as the stock hubs.

The main upgrade they will give you is the ability to adjust toe in the rear and inboard toe in the front. If you are racing I would say get them, if your not racing you don't need it.

Toe is how much the wheels point in or out, inboard is by the blocks inboard meaning on the chassis not outboard on the ends of the arms on the hubs. It is mostly used in the rear where you adjust toe of the rear tires. More rear toe generally equals more traction in the rear. On the front you can adjust this with the steering links.

Kinda quick explanation.

If you want to learn more about setup look for the HUDY setup book online or something similar it is quite good and gives you many explanations of what changes do what to the car.

I got mine from precision rc. I'm sure there are other shops that carry them as well.

Boy I'm really thinking of selling my TC as I can't find parts for the thing it's slowly turning into a Cyclone S.

Looking for the suspension arms #67717 and MIP CVD #61088 or at least the universal axle #75187.


No matter how much loctite I put on the right front CVD set screw that holds the pin into the axle it always broke free. None of the other 3 CVDS have the issue of coming apart.

Ya I know DONT CRASH THE CAR

I just buy my stuff over seas mainly Precision and RC Market as I cannot get spares here in Socal. I recently bought TC arms, shock towers, front 4degree chubs and a ton of other stuff. I have had the same issue with the CVD as well with the set screw backing out due to running the front spool with blue Locite on the screws. I recently installed the MIP CVD to see if this will hold up better...I shall see come next race day.

What i do is, heat shrink over the cvd where the pin is. If it ever comes loose it wont fall out this way. www.rcmarket.com.hk should have the parts your after.
