Hi all, got a few questions to ask?

1. Does Nanda/TQ sell diff gaskets separately or do I have to buy them with diff cups?

2. Do red Kyosho diff gaskets fit Nanda/TQ diffs?

3. Can the new parts be purchased as a kit (similar to Hong Nor x2) including tank, chassis and other light weight parts? Or can they be purchased individually?

4. Which stores stock the current light weight parts?

Thanks.

Had a great time at Nitro fever this weekend in Alabama. My Sx8 was very good in quals I just could not get a clean run to contest for the TQ spot. I qualed 6th over all in the A main and ended up 8th after a bad start that I just could not recover from.

Liam Santos will be running at Don Tilley cancer race at the Farm II runnning TQ SX-8.Trying to get more word out on the the SX-8 car here in North Carolina. Liam ran at Nitro Vally Raceway in Cherryville NC had an awesome day made a few setup changes on is car picked up a few extra seconds on lap time best lap time 35.8 Pros run in the 35s I think it might be time to bump him up to pro. Everyone down here knows thats the car we run. Liam will be practicing alot at the Farm II since it's in our backyard only 20 miles away hope to see alot of TQ SX-8 buggys there I might just put one of the backups together and race myself. Hope they have an over 40 Class these youngs I can't keep up with. I will be working on set ups for the track will post when I have a good setup. Liam will be race reopening day March 15 at the Farm.

At Nitro Vally yesterday SX-8 ran with the top brand buggys that people pay to much money for. Liam got the third spot in the A main sportsman. Pushed up to first in the last 5 minuts of the. The battle for 1st 2nd and 3rd spots were between Liam's SX-8 and 2 MBX6's. Liam placed 3rd due to some lap traffic that he got mixed up in and pushed his win back it was a great race. Congrats to the winners THE 10 YEAR OLD HIS COMEING FOR YOU OLDER GUYS WITH HIS SX-8.

Looking good at NVR. I have gotten the bug for racing 1/8 scale and have been looking in to the SX8. I am south of you Desal760, here in rock hill. My son has been racing his slash at the grove and I have several friends that run buggies and want me to start. I will say this is the buggy I will be purchasing.
