My TR Arena FRE
It is a work in progress. All I need is a lid and I need to drill holes in the chassis for the engine mounts to move the engine and clutch bell closer to the spur gear.

Hey Tree, nice work, are those kyo diff cases? I have em in my Cen buggy, seem to be a lot lighter and 1 less place to leak. BCE should be coming out with there chassis for tr soon, it will convert to small spur too. Can you give details on what you used for diffs,and universals? Thanks, Pooldoc

I have sent e-mails to BCE to get info about their chassis but I haven't received a response. I don't have a drill press and my cordless drill took a crap on me so I am not able to drill the chassis at the moment.

For my set up, I am using Kyosho STR diffs front,center, and rear. I currently have a lightened Kyosho 52t spur gear on the center diff with 50T, 48T, and 46T gears in my box.
I am using Kyosho Universals I bought from AMainhobbies(part # KYOIFW308) for the center/front & (part # KYOISW502) for the center rear. I think the rear is a little too long though I had to modify it slightly so it wouldn't bind.

Once I get my chassis drilled out I can see how everything works. I'll keep you posted.

Tree, how far over are you going to drill the holes over? I think Robert.Hull did the conversion too, maybe he knows where to drill the holes, Thanks Pooldoc

If you look at the picture I posted, you can se that I already marked the hole placement on the chassis. I put the engine and motor mount on the chassis and traced the motor mount and marked the holes. I think this will be close enough to get the gear mesh right. Now I just need to buy a new drill.

I am using the stock springs. Anyone using different shock springs? I seen people using the red Mugen springs on another forum. I might look into getting a set of those to see how they work.

Any body for the mbx5t will fit the TR, RCBodyworks has a body specifically for the TR and I see Odonnel has a body for the TR.
Robert.Hull says the stockers are big bores,the Jammin bigbores will fit the TR with no mods.
I have a Jconcepts Illuzion on my buggy.Mugen springs will work on the Tr, they seem to be longer though, makes it a little harder to set ride height. Alot of people run the Cen blue springs on the TR, I run the Mugen red springs.
