I wont be doing these modifications until after the Australian TCS as the chassis brace will make the car illegal.

Yes, of course... this is not for TCS...
This car is meant for modified class..... I plan to run with 10T old Yokomo mod motor, with QC2.

Also, any tips on Bender's website will make it illegal for TCS (IMO)... especially the steering modification ...

I still waiting for the oil damper set, and still selecting the appropriate turnbuckles... Alums (Tobee Craft) or Titans (AE B4). What do you think ?

And for the diff joint replacement (see my 3rd question), it won't work.... the bearing placement is wider for this lt. weight diff joint (TA04 and RF415) than the original DF-03 diff joint.

Rgds,

I have read on a couple of the other forums that the front diff joints will fit the rear which eliminates the plastic rings.

Front diff outputs will fit the rear, by rings, he means the plastic diff ring carriers that the outputs sit on. If anyone is interested, I can get some super hard composite outdrives made from the same material used on spool/one-way front units??

Akhunon, make sure you get PLENTY of cooling in there for the ESC.

Oh ... you mean the black plastic on the rear diff ?
OK.... So I can change the rear diff outdrive with the front diff outdrive ?

There's still one diff joint I might try, the TA05 diff joint....
But I'm a bit lazy 'cause I have installed the chassis.

BTW, thanks for the info.

Yes you can use front diff halves in the rear but not the other way around.

Are you sure, you will use DI on carpet ?
Then, those are not the right ones...

Default DF-03 with Tobee universal shaft

Does any experience the above title...

Well... I did..... I think it's a must to have them... no shaft pops up anymore... (I did some steering adjustment .... to the most..)

One suggestion if you will use this Tobee shafts is don;t forget to shim between the wheel hex hub and the outside bearing....

Front is 0.4 mm and Rear is 0.6 mm. Tamiya release the 5mm shim with thickness of 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3mm.
