Hi all, just to let you know that I have built up my D12 and am looking forward to running it at my local club this coming Friday. I'll let you know how it goes after that! All the best. Chris.

Mart42: If you look back on page 1, there's a couple good starting setups. You can start there and stiffen or soften as needed.

Damon's been busy getting his XLR8 kits going so he apologizes for not being around.

DIGGITY RULES!

The XLR8 is in the final stages of coallating, bagging, etc....Damon is finishing up the instructions and set-up guide. Pretty soon it'll be available to all who wish to dominate and destroy the competition.

O'Doyle rul....wait....DIGGITY RULES!

Hi guys,

I still have n't managed to run the D12 at our club (we go outdoors during the summer months) but thought I'd post a pic to see what you guys think. I have modified the chassis to accept 2 damper tubes (although they are not in the pic because they have n't turned up yet!). Let me know what you think and I'll let you know how it goes once we go back indoors on carpet!

Cheers, Chris.

I wanna see! I'm pretty sure the tubes that come with Cyruls car would be short enough. I'll have to check that out.

Hopefully it'll work this time....

The damper tubes still have n't turned up so they are not on there yet, I'll let you know!

Also waiting for a differant top pod plate to turn up but looking at the pic, you'll get the idea.

Cheers, Chris.

Chris, The XLR8's weight for foam touring is between 51.5 - 52.5 ounces, It will all depend on wich motor you are running (stock or mod) along with which batteries you are running (3300 - 3800's) and also the size of your tires (small or monster)... Anyway you look at it, we are right on with roar weight being 52 ounces for foam touring class...

The XLR8 is Now available!! If you can verify that you are an RCTech member than I can give you a little discount, email me through RCTech...

Thanks, Damon Converse

Chris, Your D12 is looking sick bro, Its kinda funny how you have the CRC body mount brace mounted, the updated D12 that will be available this fall has a new battery brace that includes the body mount brace to go up and outside like the way you have your kit.. Keep us updated on how well it performs over where you are at!

Thanks, Damon Converse

Default XLR8 is Now Available 07/12/06

The Diggity Designs XLR8 conversion kit for the Associated TC3 and TC4 touring cars is Now available. Word on the street is that the Associated TC3 and TC4 touring cars are going under, but everyone seems to have forgotten how well a shaft car can handle and the amazing punch you get off the line and exiting corners. After 2 years of development and testing, we have produced a conversion kit that can turn your old TC3 or TC4 into a brand new competitive racing machine! The kit features a chassis that was layed out by weight meaning that it was designed around the most balanced set-up, we have lowered the drive line 1/4 inch from Associated's standard keeping the center of gravity very low and increasing speed, introduced milled aluminum components to keep the drive line accurate and to keep the structure if the entire kit well solid, carbon fibre components made from 3mm quasy layered panels from Kinetic Composites, new suspension geometry, new steering geometry, one-piece solid aluminum drive shaft for a more effecient drive line, along with many tuning options found on the newer touring kits i.e.(x-ray, corally). This is the ultimate shaft drive touring car available. Allot of TC3's and TC4's are laying around collecting dust right now, you can find some great deals on Ebay if you dont already have one.

Here are some pics: You can see more pics here: XLR8 PICS
You can purchase an XLR8 kit here: XLR8 ORDER

Hi all,

I managed to finish off fitting the twin damper tubes to my D12.

Ended up using a CRC cross brace, a Hammer 12 top plate and damper tubes off a Corally!

All fitted so I'll try it out next Friday and let you know what I think!

All the best,

Chris.
