Does anybody have any experience with these ?
Thanks.

Hiro, Korey or Fred (or anyone) have you tried the Ver2 shock shafts ?
Thanks.

jag88,

Yes, i have. But we almost always used the upper slot for ideal amount of down travel.

Thank you.

Does HPI make an optional motor mount for the TCXX ? I thought I saw one that pushes the motor outboard some amount so that it puts a little more roll in the car.
I found a heavy duty mount but I'm not sure it's the same ...
Thanks.

We don't make an optional one but we often use the TCX mount to get more roll and make the car drive more fluid. If you do use the TCX mount then you must use shims to raise it up and the same shim height under the top deck as well. I use anywhere from 1mm to 1.5mm.

Well, it's not like "must" for raising the mount up. We adjust the height from 0-1.0mm max when we need, but we do it for both TCXX mount and TCX mount. Most of the time, the TCXX mount with no shims under it is ideal, but sometimes it works better with raised up some.

The TCX mount is nice because you can adjust the motor position sideway by adding/removing shim(s) between motor and motor mount too. Only down side on the TCX motor mount is that we have to remove the top deck when we change motor/pinion gear for stock racing. (no vertical motor screw holes)

Thanks.

Parts are slowy starting to roll into GP/Hobbico/Tower Hobbies. You can use the links below to search for what you need. TCX/TCXX graphite arms (67717) should be in by July.
