I take it you ordered the tamiya 2mm diff screw as well which is required to use the TOP or JAAD racing thrust bearing??

The small things, I am already buying.

Found the shocks on rcmodel.

I have bought the bearings and screw at precision rc in the past but they are not trustable any more.

Does someone knows where I can get it.

Also I was told that the screw used on the HB Cyclone is quite good because have a metal cover and does not get hot with the friction getting looser, have someone tried that?

I am going to give a look at it, but if you guys could post where to get the thrust bearing because where I bought in the past there is no more stock anymore, tried to find the top at amain but there is no stock of it.

I always got the JAAD bearings from Precision RC. They are hard to find. That is why I'm using the Top Racing one now which I ordered from Top Racing USA. Not sure if they ship outside the US.

Very good for my point of view and very cost effective I have to say.

It's good and costs nothing no doubt about that, but those bulkheads are weak enough without taking material off them

Which is why I prefer our bulkheads, superior in strength and allow the car to flex more evenly
