Quick question....

What's the cheapest place to buy a personal transponder online that you know of that also has hassle free ordering from other countries (no fuss like with Tower Hobbies)?

Thanks in advance.

You could order it from RC Mart in Hong Kong. You save lots on air shipping, Hong Kong - New Zealand.

BTW, you need to E-mail RC Mart, get quote on the total price including 3-4 days shipping, send Telegraphic Transfer Payments through your local bank, and wait 1 week for door to door delivery.

And that's supposed to be less hassle than just pick and click to add it to a shopping cart is it? lol Doesn't have to be the absolute cheapest just the best combo of price and ease or ordering will do fine.

Is the bomber driveshaft significantly lighter than the Yokomo fiberglass shaft? I raced all summer (stock class) with the Yokomo shaft and I didn't have anyproblem with splintering or breaking.

hi,

for the car i would like to have the alloy dogbones at the rear with steel axles and a the front steel axles al round, but i was wondering what you actualy get with the parts? can you order the front and rear axles without any dogbones and can you order the dogbones seperatly? if so do any of you no the part numbers? and also what is the part number for the maintence kit for the drivehafts? i believe you get the pin, grub screw and the little knuckle bit?

many thanks
A Gower

I don't know if the team bomber shaft is any lighter but I'm almost positive if you twisted both ends of your yokomo shaft it will feel like a noodle.

Matt, Alex has the bomber shaft and it is very light, not sure if it is lighter than the Yoke carbon shaft, because I gave the Yokomo one away. It is very light and stiff and does not twist. It looks really good too.

I've got the new RS towers on my car right now and I love the rear one but the front camber link positions seem too high on the inside for my taste, even at the lowest mounting position. Also, the wide front bumper kit will protect the front of the car much better than the kit bumper. Have fun and kick some butt with the CGM
Matt, I also think the front inside camber link hole is too high... It makes my car even more 'pusher' than using the original tower... Do these towers suit the RS graphite chasis more?!

I don't know if they suit one chassis better than the others, I wouldn't see why they would though. I'll probably just get another new rear tower and cut off the body mounting holes and use it up front.

PROP SHAFTS.

I put the Yoke graphite one on mine and yes it did flex like a noodle in no time at all.

I have a Bomber shaft in my son's mod TC3. It's been on over a year without any problems. I have ordered some more for both TC3 and Yoke from Speedtech but apparently they are presently out of stock.

As far as weight is concerned, I would say the Yoke graphite shaft and the Bomber shaft weigh about the same - both very light.

I recently fitted the Titanium Racing CVDs front and rear on mine. Very light and very well made, unlike their previous dog bones for the belt drive MR4s. They were terrible.

johnbull- how's the wear rate on the Ti CVD's? A friend of mine tried those on his losi last year and they got sloppy really quick.

Hi Matt.

Yes, the original TIR CVDs were lousy. I ran them for a while on my son's TC3 and threw them away and also ran some on my old belt drive Yoke - and threw them away.

The new ones are much better. They have a steel sleeve and the inner roller is also steel, whereas the original ones were all titanium. Yes these are a definate improvement. I have run 2 meetings plus quite a bit of practice with them, and so far no sign of wear.

Anything new in your part of the world ?
