Looks like a project. Anyone thought of putting the TC3 steering bar in place of those bellcranks. Maybe some chassis milling would do the job. Does that thing come with a top deck? If not looks like another thing to make.

After a few races, using ordinary bones, the slots in the diff outs on the SD begin to wear - this is to be expected as the diff outs we use are very light and performance oriented.

The advantages of using blades is that this wear is virtually eliminated and the drive train will have less 'snatch' in it - clearly a good thing.

Disadvantages - besides the nominal cost, none as far as I'm aware but I'll reserve judgement until I've tried them out.

I didn't stand up the RX, I dont have any need to because all of my stuff is really small. I have a feeling that a lot of people will be looking for more space though.

I did think of doing that, and then moving the servo up even more, but I'm going to see how this works for now. I do wish they would have moved the batteries more forward.

Also, you guys can see that I put foam on the left side of the batteries, they have a bit of slop in the cell slots, so that pushes them all the way right. If anyone else wants to do this, I used Associated T2 Battery Foam.

I take it that my old Novak 410mxc won't fit then

Seriously though, that's a pretty tight space to fit all the gear. Bottom line is: if you want to race CGMs, you better have small electronics!

Or a top deck to stick stuff to!

I just soldered up a battery pack and turned the car on, I seem to be getting some glitching with how the electronics are setup, but I'm really not sure what is causing it, I tried with and without the personal transponder, and it doesnt seem to make a difference. Any ideas?

Their's a product by TN racing(Japan) it's like a Ferrite sheet you stick on your RX..suppress RFI interference.... or buy some copper sheets or tape from your electronics store and wrap your RX in it..

move the RX on top of the servo...

It could be to do with the orientation of the ESC in relation to the receiver. If you're loathe to put stuff on top of your servo, try putting your speedo on it's side with the power leads uppermost and change the position of the receiver so that its mounted alongside the speedo longitudinally in the chassis, with the Rx Xtal as far away from the motor leads as possible. It should help.

I'll try a couple different electronics setups and see if anything works.

Ramon - Did you bulk order those Ferrite things, you could propably get some good money for them I'd think.

One more problem, I'm trying to find a place with MIP CVD's in stock for the car, but having some bad luck, anyone know who stocks em?
