one other thought -- what is the width of the front spool? i wonder if a TOP Photon spool would fit.
I haven't tried any others, but Yokomo makes their own DCJ's for the front and rear. One of my had a defective outdrive, so I figured I'd run the Tamiyas in a pinch since I had some. They could probably be shimmed to work, and the c-hub's could be modified so they don't rub, but I should have a replacement in a few days so I'll just try the Yok pieces. I'm not sure on the spool width.
The car was super easy to drive today with one of the setups from Yatabe. Definitely an improvement over the kit setup. It was extremely stable where other cars seemed to be struggling for grip. I'm gonna get some solid practice days in the next couple of weeks to really start working on fine tuning the setup, but so far, this car feels like it's going to be really good. And durability hasn't been a problem yet. I'm running the graphite parts with plastic c-hubs and a hard bumper and everything has been fine.
