THD, which i think stands for team hoagie designs made some sleeves that fit over the molded outdrives. they seem to work great for me. i run a trakpower 4900mAh in mine and it is extremely fast and punchy, no more nimh for me!

Alloy? I think I might have one I don't use. I'll have a look and let you know if you like?

Cheers.

Default XXX4 over B44?

I ran my XXX4 for the first time today. I only ran 1 pack and all i can say is WOW . It had tons of traction and plenty of steering with the oneway installed. i have a b44 also that is now for sale.
Now, this struck me. I have a xxx4, and it is alright. But I had been thinking about replacing it with a B44 (which I have never tried driving). I thought everyone liked the B44 over the xxx4. Is it possible to like the xxx4 over the B44? My xxx4 can get a bit goofed-up over choppy terrain.

Glad you like the sleeves! How is the screw kit working out for you? A lot of racers that bought them really liked what installing the screws did for them. They would still break a carrier in a bad crash, but it ended all the minor incidents.

I only have a few pairs of aluminum sleeves left, less than (20) pairs, and once they are gone they're gone. I have to make too many at a time to keep the cost down, and they don't sell well enough to make them anymore.

Also, I have sold out of the screw kits and will only make some if they are ordered in quantities of (14) packs. They aren't selling as well anymore either for me to keep them in stock.

I'm now making Teflon shims for the clutch shoes on 3 & 4 shoe clutchs for Nitro Buggies and Truggies, and they are doing pretty well. Those are available on www.amainhobbies.com & www.tnt-fx.com

Feel free to contact me if anyone is interested in anything.

Sorry, it's 10 deg.

BTW - glad to see this thread firing up again, I love these cars. I'm not the worlds best driver but on a good day I still keep up with every other car out there. Feeling a bit sentimental at the moment, just bought another one S/H but NIB for a shelf queen, Now to get it painted like original......

Thanks for the reply anyways.
I use the concepts carriers. They work great!
This is what I did for the install:
A set of B4 hinge pins not kingpins and two 5-40 set screws for each side and I used 2 kyosho washers on each side for spacing
Any washers could will work but, the kyosho are m.m. and fit great
The set screwa will capture the hinge pin perfectly

Thumbs up XXX-Concepts

Hell yeah, I just got done fab'n them up. The only difference is that I used a 3mm .5 set screw. Ground down a little valley in the pin for the set screw to seat in, and installed washers. Plus they look great. Thanks for the help also. Cant wait to get this thing back out. It's been running supurb

How tight do you run the front diff compared to the rear diff to get really good steering coming in and out of a corner? No oneway.

What front block works the best for more steering 5, 7.5, or 10 degree?

Thanks
