Are the short big bore dampers from the Evo.6 MS the same as the older Evo6?
I checked the shock shaft part numbers from both manuals and they are the same. Not sure about the shock body. Thanks

Wow..... I hate to say it again, but I told you so ! Yeah I only run tc4's and Awesomatix A700ex, but they are all the same basic drivetrain design.... How many other shaftdrive (Awesomatix or other brands) cars made the top 20 ??? No tc4's ???...lol....
You can still get more speed out of your car if you use a ewhippler carbon driveshaft, aluminum screws/ turnbuckles/diff outdrives, blitz 0.5mm bodies, and remove all your bearing seals+ gear two teeth higher......Good luck....

Congratulations on the the finishing positions guys!

Redbull, what front cupling are you using for the main drive shaft to the front gearbox?

Good eye Professor
TB04 aluminum pilot shaft, use the long shaft in the set, but it needs to be cut down to length of Evo 6 front shaft

This and other weight shaving without compromising durability, put my car at 1380g with 15g of weights added to meet minimum at Reedy tech

Thanks for the info. Saving weight is good, but not at the expense of durabilty. Do you run any alumnum or ti screws? I also see you don't run the bearings on the battery tabs. Curious as to why? Also what Mah battery are you running?

Just trying to get all the puzzle pieces together to duplicate weight savings.

Thanks

Steel screws on the bottom of the chassis, combination of aluminum and ti on top

Don't see the need for added bearings and screws on the battery holders
Have Yokomo rubber pad underneath so the lipo doesn't slip, and double layered tape for added insurance

298g
