i use the power HD B7, used by Marc Rheinhard. Really good value for money, basically anything under around 0.07secs, torque doesnt matter as much with TC. Anything over 10kg is good. Just my opinion. http://www.rcmart.com/high-voltage-digital-brushless-servo-black-steel-gears-13kg47g-p-80709.html?cPath=1099_1025

Do all servos need the inside lower ear to be cut off or are there servos out there that don’t need this done? All my servos have full aluminum cases including the mounting ears so I really don’t want to shave an Aluminium ear off.

Yes it needs to be cut off for the tc7.2

I am using a Sanwa servo and did not cut off the ear to clear the belt. The belt just fits into the hole and I have not noticed any wear of the belt or the ear on the servo after many hours of running the car. Not to say anyone else will not have a problem. Just saying so far I have not.

Does anyone run a diff in the front? Or does every one run a spool up front. Why is this?

I just got a tc7.2 to replace my tc7.1 and my pinion does not fit. I run 48pitch The biggest pinion I can fit is a 37tooth. What do all stock guys do about this? Are there different top plates that allow for bigger pinions.

Use a smaller spur gear. I use the Associated 48 pitch 69 tooth spur which allows me to use 33 to 40 tooth pinions.

the chart in the manual will have what pinion sizes will work with what spurs

for 48pitch a 37tooth is the bigger pinion I can fit before the pinion hits the top plate. I just installed a 69tooth spur and I’m running the 37tooth pinion. It’s it’s a 3.72 final drive. Should be ok I think for my reddy m3 21.5t motor.

Like others have mentioned, changing the spur is likely the best most cost effective answer. Shimming the top deck up .5mm can get you an extra tooth in a pinch, and although I haven't tried it, this top deck looks to give you all the clearance you need: RSD TC7.1 Vertical Top Deck Kit Installed

Is the TC8 on the drawing board, there to fix all the problems in the 7.2 design, maybe something that can be a center motor design.

I kind of wonder the same - been looking to get back in the game, and Iíve been considering either this, or a Serpent 4x Pro. Iím leaning towards the latter, due to itís radical, low CG design and the fact that I live in Serpent Americaís backyard, despite the fact that AR cars have always been close to my heart... Change my mind, AE!

what is wrong with the design ?

this gen of the car is the best its ever been (IMO)

center mount is a fad, if it worked then Tamiya with the ta-05/trf 415 back in 2008 would still be using it.

Tc8? The tc7.2 just came out less than a year ago. Doesn’t associated keep the cars for a few years?
