Before you try lifting the block, try running with less toe-in and harder spring in the rear and/or softer spring in front.

Hi guys, went through another 10 runs tonight and a full race. Still no wear at all on the same gears with the new shaft.

No, it's with Tamiya's new lightweight shaft (2mm longer).

No, the lightweight shaft is lighter than the blue shaft, but same in length (both 2mm longer than the red shaft).

Cheers, Mark.
If the value is below 45EUR you normally don't have to pay any taxes.

I figured out that most small packages make it through the customs "alive". If your package gets caught you'll have to pay 0,8% duty and 16% taxes, but it should still be cheaper than getting this stuff here (as seen with my Savage SS ).

im still quite confused how this new shaft is sorting the problem? how i see it the main reason the drive train gets damaged is cos there is no leeway in the prop so no float n so on? how does it fix the problem?

has the gears got any binding?

thanks

Tarnjit

But donīt forget costs for shipping are counting also for that 45 EUR limit.
As shipping from Asia or US is very expensive 45 EUR arenīt very much.
