The stock shaft is aluminum, I am looking for CF because it's lighter weight.

Default More newb questions.

I just assembled and installed the front shocks on my MR-4TC SD and the edge of a bare wheel/rim rides very slightly lower than the chassis...between 1-2 mm. Is this normal, or should there be more clearance?

Just got my order from RainbowTen today, the Suzuki steering blocks are extremely nicely made, and the anodizing matches the SD perfectly. Square axles fit perfect, also bought their delrin shim kit, and it came out great as well.

What kind of gear ratio should I run on a Reedy Kr 8x2 for a track with 90-100 foot straight?

Randman: How is the performance of car on the track? Have you ran your car yet? Are all these hop-ups needed?

Randman, I see that you got bitten by the R10 buying bug too.

I got my order in today too from RainbowTen. I too got the Suzuki Steering Blocks and a few other things. They look nice! Didn't get my Tobee Craft light weight main shaft though. Maybe next time when they actually have them.

As for the Graphite Shaft, mine is okay so far. Been racing it in Stock so far. But I have ran a few packs of Mod through it as well. I guess I'll have to switch back to the stock one for the Nats.

Lonestar, my opinion on the SD is that it's a great well designed car. Yes it's new. And yes it will go through changes. But the XXX-S has and so is the TC3 (still changing/improving). So you will not get one car that is "perfect." As for flaws... the only thing I don't like are the front axles. But I bought titanium ones to correct this. The main problem is they tend to break easy. But I've only broken one of them out of the 2 SD's that I own. I've had 2 TC3's in the past... XXX-S and XXX-S G+ and other cars as well. The SD is a great car. Very easy to work on and maintain. It won't be a wrong decision as long as you can get parts for it where-ever you are. TC3 is not a bad car either. As I'm sure you know. If you are just looking for resell value... I dunno. They both cost almost the same new. I think this is just a personal decision.... so why not just try something new!!

Anyways, like a kid with candy... or new toys... I gotta go play with my RainbowTen Order!!

The car is quite potent in stock form. It performs well and is very durable.

Hi Guys,

I'm updating the website with our shipment of Tobee Craft stuff as we speak. I should have the SD section up tonight.

My goal with Speed Tech R/C is to be able to carry the parts you guys need so you guys wouldn't have to purchase from over seas anymore
