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
Hey Rich,

I replied to your email yesterday, had been busy this past weekend and was a little late on responding.

Yes, the V1 and V2 kits are both in stock.

Unfortunately, I do not know where to get the 200mm arms, Im sure you have been watching eBay, but thats where I would look.

You could also start a thread on RCTech asking if anyone has them available?

Thanks

Yes, you can use any of the different diffs that are used in the TC3 or TC4 on the V1 or V2 kits.

First, thanks for the compliments

For the quote, the arms were made about 4 years ago, if we would have changed anything now it would have been to add a capture screw for the pins

Default XLR 8

Ran my new XRL8 V1 last weekend for the first time. Car worked great, just need to dial in the correct gear ratio for the brushless system I'm running and maybe go with a little heavier shock oil in the rear and I should be good to go. Thanks for the fast shipping on the new hardware I ordered. Great Service.

Jim

Awesome racing this weekend. Friday night I took TQ and the A main win with my Diggity equipped GV2 and Saturday I was 7th in the A for buggy and 6th in the A for truck at round 3 of the JConcepts Super Cup. Damon, thanks so much for the quick shipment and excellent service!

Default XLR8 V1

The last two times I've raced I broke the Diff screw. The screw that holds the two diff haves together. Is anybody else having this problem? In the 15 years I've been racing I don't think I ever broke one of these screws. Now two in the last two races. Both times it has been the front diff. Any help would be apprecaited

Jim, Sorry a little late

Sometimes you will get a bad screw or else maybe you are using one with allot of time on it. I have broken a couple in the past, Associated diff screws are known to break, B4, T4, TC3 and TC4's. Someone once told me that there are titanium or stainless screws available but I never looked into it. Hope that helps.

i just started racing about 1.5 months ago. i was looing at a new car kit then i found the diggity vlr8-v2. i was wondering how much it will help me as far as cornering speed. i run a tc4 with a novac 5000 kv or 8.5 turn bl motor along with a mamba max pro. I run duel cooling fans. I have a fdr of 4.95 and a really hevy car. i picked up a fellow racers car and it weighed alot less then mine. am good enough to come in for a podium finish i just need to drop about .5 seconds off my lap time without hurting my esc or motor. i dont want to gear up any more and loss ecceleration and overheat my electronics. If any one can help out that would be great. i would like an estament on what my times may drop. at the last race i ran a 20.07 to 20.9 the guy that beat me ran an xray t2 at 20.02 to 20.09. sorry for such a long post. just thought that any of you all that run the vlr8-v2 would be able to help me out some. the track is smooth asphalt with a lot of grip with 35 shore foams. thanks for any and all help.

I couldnt tell you exactly how much you would gain, but I do know that our kit improves the performance of the TC3 and TC4 kits when in the right hands. I know that guys who are running the V2 kits are super happy. The V2 kits works excellent on outdoor tracks.

thanks, Digs

Cool V2

I have been running my XLR8-V2 in our Trans Am series for the past two n half seasons and its doing very well , Its the perfect car for the Trans Am class , And if your going to run mod I would definitly get the alum steering knuckles for it . I have the same diff in my car from the TC4 kit , I keep the front a lot tighter then the rear ! I use blue lock tight on the threads !. good luck
