Maski,

The TI Racing site is a little weird. Try watching the instructions on how to find what parts they have. I had been there before but never watched the video and thought they never had any parts :-)

I e-mailed them for the stuff I wanted. They referred me to Schumacher USA who will be selling their stuff in the states. The number is 813-889-9691. The guy there told me the parts would be in in about 3 weeks. I ordered the cvd's, hinge pins, and ball studs.

You guys must be computer illiterate or something, it took me about 10 seconds to figure out how to use it

johnbull, they are actually more expensive. I know MIP CVD's are 30 dollars a set in the US, and those are 40 pounds, so it will be more than 40 dollars in the US. Still, Next TC I get I'll probably get some, titanium is just cool

Exactly what did you do to make your JB special, and what is it?

Ralf, I would suggest using at least the center one-way, you will be so much faster.

40 quid for Driveshafts?
Thats close to $140NZ as opposed to the Yokomo CVDs retailing around $65NZ complete.
I think I'll stick to factory parts thank you very much

maski:

i think you better read the instructions on the website b4 you make yourself look foolish.

Select catalogue, click on those icons on the right to select 4WD, electric, 1/10 onroad. then click on the drive shafts on the diagram on the left.
this will bring up a list of cvds for different brands in alphabetical order.
then click on the arrow on the bottom right of the list to bring up a continuation of the list which should list cvds for the mr4tc................

oh now i have it! i should have read it b4 clicking on that flash site. nice idea though!

i will be running my sp on asphalt and need to know what oil to use? i had read here b4 that recommended using lighter oil like 40wt.

i'll try to use the ofna wheels but what i'm practically looking for is that the wheel doesn't tear at the wheel nut!
i hope nylon rims will solve this problem!

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Maski. Speedo is right about prices. Usually things are so much cheaper in America than they are in Europe. So MIP units at $30 is not surprising.

I can tell you my prices here. I sell okomo complete units - thats dog bone and stub axle unit for Lm34 whilst I can sell the equivalent Titanium unit for Lm27. In US$ those figures would be 75 and 59, so you see the price difference is massive. You are lucky in the states.

Speedo. My JB Special consists of MX4 chassis and front belt which are longer, rally car front bulkhead - which has more kick up, and lots of other subtle changes to geometry. I ran it yesterday and it ran very well. I am also trying a locked rear diff in combination with a front one way - IC car style. It seems to work. It would be great on a fast circuit but it creates understeer galore so would be difficult on a tight circuit.

I'll keep you posted.

regards

Joe from sunny Malta.

Ralf, stick the front one-way in there. Use sorex or pit 24/20 (or 28/24 for sorex if you are on a track with heaos of traction, pit equivilant is 27/24, it'll give you a bit more steering.) Anyway, ask what tire to use, this setup I'm posting is mine for 24/20 rather tight track, works excellant for me.

front 25wt oil, #3 piston, blue springs. Outer hole for shock on tower, outer hole on arm. Upper outer hole on tower for camber link, mounted on top of kigpin instead of usual hole on castor block. High roll center on the inside (upper) and 3 degree castor blocks. 1-2 degrees camber (whatever works) ) degree toe, silver "worlds" style swaybar.

rear 25wt oil, #3 piston, blue springs. Outer hole for shock on tower, outer hole on arm. Upper outer hole on tower for camber lin, 1 degree rear hubs cut down to 30mm and link mounted on top. Low roll center on the inside (lower hole). 1-2 degrees camber. No swaybar.

johnbull, sounds interesting! Wouldn't mind seeing some pics if you could.

Hi guys. Greetings from Malta.

Ran the JB Special this afternoon - momentarily. he plastic rear diff couldn't take the pounding of being locked and snapped. But it seemed very promising till it went.

I'll build up a metal locked diff, or easier still, I'll machine one out of alloy.
