Diggity, can you share some info on your TC4 conversion kit? Our main carpet class is 17.5 blinky with a FDR of 4.0-3.6 can that be accomplished with your chassis?

Which Team Associated parts will I be able to use? (arms, arm mounts)

It would be a bit hard to get an exact FDR since I have no idea what tires you are running but the largest spur gear you can run since the driveline has been lowered is a 69T 48pitch or similar 64pitch (i think 88).

All of the Associated parts listed in the advertisement or in our instruction manual http://www.diggitydesigns.com/downlo...-V2_Manual.pdf can be used. The stock arms and arm mounts will not work since the design of the XLR8 kits has changed all of the geometry.

You might be able to get the arms to work with some modifications or else another TC on the market possibly since the XLR8 is diverse and allows the use of many different components.

Do you think you are going to be making any carbon parts for the desc410r?

Very possible. We just got done making the DEX210 parts. Check your PM and get back with me.

I went racing last night with my diggity designs caster 1/10th buggy. It was a BIG night as we had over 10 fast guys come up from California to race at our track. It was a night of N. Nevada VS N. Cal. LOL In mod 4wd buggy we had a full 10 in the A main. I would have qual'ed 3 or 4 if laped traffic didn't get into me and hung up on my wing. It's all good though. I qual'ed 5th. Before the main i put on a new set of clay raptors with proline foam but still had some real loose fitting rear switch and aka foam. I got some proline foam to try in some new rear tires i just got for my buggy. I just missed 22 laps by less the a sec. I took 4th place. The caster buggy ran great in both heats and the main with no problems at all.

That is awesome and very informative! I will take note of this for others that might be having this issue. Is it a direct bolt on or what modifications did you make? Can you share that for others? Also, is it possible to flip your servo so the saver is towards the outside? Just wondering. Thanks for the post with the pics!

Default Schumacher twin point steering diggity XLR8-V2

in order to do this i bought Schumacher twin point steering upgrade 29.99 plus shipping, right length tie rods assoiated ? length (probable tc5 tc6 steering tie rods), two 1/2" aluminum spacers form hardware store, and extra long m3 bolts use ginder to make right length. you have to drill new holes in frame two side by side to hold steering rack and to staggered to reposition servo. Note: cant remember why i had to put servo saver facing inside something wasnt working right when i did it so this is what i ended up with. Note 2: 1/2" aluminum spacers would work better in length shorted but no way shorten them at that time so i cut grove out of steering rack center support for drive shaft about half way through strength hasnt been an problem.

Just curious, does the TLR22 battery strap (the 4 way mounting version) replace the stock battery brace?

Might place an order if so, since the battery brace is $20 alone.

Always fancied trying an XLR8 conversion and after alot of time playing with a tub TC4 I'm now at the end of the scope in terms of adjustment to make it go any faster. Diggity, could you tell me what the front/rear weight bias on your conversion and if the left/right chassis flex is equal. Thanks!
