Default hb tcx parts

just purchase a hb tcx kit used, the kit is missing the front and back pivot blocks. Does any one know were I could find them? Or any aftermarket ones that would fit.
thanks in advance for any help.

You can also try the exotek ones, I think they are pretty universal for the earlier time period cars such as the HB, Team Associated, Tamiya cars.

Thanks, so far have found 3 pivot blocks, just looking for pivot block 68755. I found different ones that have different degrees, they are front rear, how much does the degree effect the car? I'm probably just going to purchase the 1 degree pivot block

Are we talking about that?

Originally the TCX use 2.5 as FF, +1 as FR , 0 as RF and 3 as RR.

It was clearly one of the important setup point of the car. It will change the behavior of the car...

I think those go on the outside of the bulkhead not sure the one I'm looking for goes on the front behind the bulkhead if that makes sense. I can't post pics yet, so can't add an example

that's what I meant with the notation I used, they are quite common:
  • FF is the part fixed behind the bumper
  • FR is the part near the steering
  • RF is the part behind the motor
  • RR is the part at the rear extremity of the car
Your RF is probably more like that

The +0.5 indicates that you must substract 0.5 to the FF block. It also exist in 0, +1 and -1.

You can also find split blocks like these:

Yes, 68755 look similar to your image. I was just going by the manual and trying to attain the parts it calls out for. I wasn't aware I could use the split blocks, are they preferred?
am I able to use any block as long as it states its an FR.
thank you for the info, I'm a noob to these touring cars

You can, this is a setup option. Split blocks will give you a little more front flex, so it can help the car enters the corners. Mainly depends on grip...

Do you happen to know if the tcxx pivot blocks will work? I found (tcxx)68476, from the images it doesn't seem to be the same as the (tcx)68755, it does state its F/R.
I did look through the old tcxx thread and I believe one post stated they were interchangeable. Your advice would be greatly appreciated
thank you

quite hard to remember. I know that Cyclone TC has only 2 holes for FR block. I think TCX has four. If it is the case, they are the same parts (as most of the rest of the car by the way)
