Hey rc-zombies,
Didn't you see pics somewhere of a dremeled front bridge (toe block) that left room for the steering parts when adding spacers underneath the bridge? Where are those?

Thanks rc-zombie,

As for the tamiya univ., the drive shaft is a little shorter, and the axle is the same but the mounting hole for the drive shaft is a little more to the outside so all togehter its almost the same length. Plus the tamiya axles have two sets of pin holes for mounting the drive shaft, so when one wears out you can switch it to the other.

I haven't run it at SWR yet, only on carpet at Stockton last Sat. with my new Novak Brushless. So I didn't do to well with breaking every run and trying to fing the rollout for the Brushless, but Billy and I are going to go next Wendsday night.

Hmmm...I thought I saw you post something about a dremel fix.

The problem is when I want to add 1.5mm of spacers (like in one of hara's setups). It will give clearance at rest, but when I configure any significant amount of droop, the turnbuckle will hit the bridge when the suspension lifts. It gets even worse if I want to increase the ackerman.

I have 1mm under the bridge right now and it seems OK...but just on the edge. I was making these changes rather quickly on a race day, so I have not had a chance to look at it more closely...

ah...yes... I did say that...before I tested it out... now I'm running 6mm of droop..and clearance is not an issue. I'll probably dremel mine a little bit before I send out the toe-blocks to get purplized...

breaking... you need a p-dub bumper... or one of the p-dub me too's...Parma makes one now... super light and stiff... I'll be installing one this weekend.
or you can cut up some Kydex to make a wider bumper or do what every Pro4 racer is doing...using the bud's TC3 wide bumper plate.

Hara hangs out here in Thailand a lot with Surikarn. I heard that Hara has a gf in Chaing Mai, haha. Maybe I'll have to get a Cyclone. I'll post pix of my friends purple Cyclone when he is finished putting it together.

Raced last night on foams on carpet. Took a couple of heats to get a good setup and then the car was great. I ended up qualifying 2nd from a lower heat. In the final I got away well and then after a couple of laps collided with someone who was on the opposite side of the track. After that I made another couple of mistakes and then broke the ball stud which goes into the servo saver. I think I need to get some titanium ones of those

One thing that I did notice however is that my turnbuckle for the steering was rubbing on the F/R block, with no spacing on the block. I did rebuild the servo saver after the last race but I can't see anything that I put back together wrong.
