I did have the opportunity to run a gear diff the other night. I filled it with Losi 5k, it defintetly accelerates faster, but steps out easier. I need to get that nailed down.
Could you post a pic of the JC hub installed? I have been looking to make the conversion.

actually I use J Concepts mono wheels for the 22. I also use the 2mm wheel spacer behind the associated roll pin, even though its not pic'd.

Try the AE roll pins. They don't fall out and you'll have them then for when you convert to the JC 12mm hexes

The AE compression pins should work too.

When I'm in a tight situation, I trim down an old body clip to fit


I have also used a metal coat hanger to fix the problem, but you have to find the skinny ones that will fit into the hole on the axle.

Default Battery Question

Hey guys,

New owner of a 210 but trying to if I can use a regular battery pack or do I have to use a shorty pack? I have heard some say shorty or saddle packs.
Also any gearing suggestions for starters.

Thanks

Paul

You can use any three types of batteries.

Nice long chassis shot. This car also has a brass front weight under the servo; has TD logo.

this car is really tempting and I may just fall off the a.e slope. Maybe i just had a bad day bc usually my stuff feels real good but this car is really solid looking.

Jmuck ik u switched from b4.1 to this, what are the pros and cons? part breaks? shocks? diffs?

I would like a car that is easier to push harder.

Highly doubt they are "new" from TD. Probably something they did themselves.

Although, there was the long chassis at Reedy, and at this race as well. Hupo was also running the aluminum rear hubs at both races. Funny though, considering those things have been on the TD website for a few months now.

I was dreaming the other day of milling some material off the motor plate. It's already pretty thick and getting some mass off the top should help with CG; how much, is probably not very noticeable though.

The drilled slipper plates cuts rotational mass, which is always a good thing if you're looking for acceleration.

Also, from the pictures Hupo stuck with the long chassis, but switched to the stock TD body. He was running the Proline at Reedy. Jorn switched to the short chassis.
