Hi

Do you have the Flexy upper decks in stock for the B44? Need front and rear decks.

Just wanted to know before placing order.

Thanks
Ryan

All right, I'm ready to try this again...

I ran my XLR8 conversion at our Regionals in Stock Rubber in March '08 and found the car to handle, accelerate, etc very well. The only problem (and it was a biggie) was that the outboard hinge pins on the rear arms walked their way out EVERY heat. Machined a couple Jaco spec tires/wheels into 2-parters from the inside like the pin was a dull parting tool. This was frustrating enough that I parked the car on the shelf since.

The front arms have holes for the 2-56 screws to capture the pins but the rears, oddly enough, do not. Nor do the spare set of arms I've got.

Over a year and a half on I want to get the car back on the track. My intent is to set it up as a Vintage TA car where we still support 4-cell formula locally. What do I need to do to keep the darn hinge pins from walking out? Worst-case I can drill and tap the rear uprights to use grub screws to anchor the hinge pins in place like we did on our RC500's "in the day" but to really do that properly I should put Helicoil inserts in there as well and I'm not "jazzed" about doing that either.

Am I the only guy who's struggled with this?

Cool

eazy fix - remove them - then add one maybe two drops of thin CA run the length of the pins , try after first drop drys . may need second drop - let them dry complete . they are good and tight , you won't need set screws . I did this when I first put the car together . Haven't had one move / come out yet ! I think it is a good car for VTA racing !
If you need Damon you need to email him . . . .
Good Luck !

And that doesn't cause binding in the arms themselves where they need to pivot freely? I'll give it shot.

Still seems odd that they'd drill and tap the front arms (front and back!! Couldn't make a near "blind" hole like the TC5, etc) for the capture screws but not the rears. Ah well. Kind of a weird oversight for such an otherwise well-executed conversion. I tell people it's the car Xray would build if Xray were building shafties.

Speaking of shafties, and to your point re: VTA, I think shaft drive and front spool are THE ticket for such a power-limited class. These put the power STRAIGHT down to the track. No muss, no fuss, no backlash...just GO!!

First race with the new CF parts went well. The 4mm rear shock tower that is slightly taller is great on the GV2. I noticed a quicker reacting car in the corners and it had a more direct jumping feel. I would sudgest any GV2 owner look into these quality upgrades!

Hey Diggity,
Do you still have this kit/upgrade in stock XLR8-V1?
Have sent three emails and had no response. maybe somethings not getting through, so thought I'd try you here.

Also would be very interested in a Rally kit 200mm. Originally got in for the T/A racing and am pretty new to it but found others talking about this Rally kit TA used to make. Sounds like even more RC fun.

thanks
