You could modifie the fastrax underbody from the tc3 (FTTC01) or you could use curry pots or little plastic boxes to put the electrics and cover the holes where the electrics come out with silicone or blue tak

I'm sorry if i'm going to cost speedtechrc or yokomo some sales on the RS mip cvd's, but, they bind up the axles when you tighten down the wheel nut. There was supposed to be instructions in the cvd packages telling the customers to shave down their steering blocks and rear hub carriers to stop the binding. Hopefully RS will be getting with MIP so they can fix the problem but for now I would stay away from them.

Matt,

can you explain exactly what is binding and where to shave the steering blocks to eliminate the binding?

Thanks,

Blake

I don't exactly know. I only know that when I asked yokomo for some they told me to stay away from them because they are binding the axles, they also said RS added instructions in the packages telling customers where to shave them to get them to work.

Hi Matt,

Let me get in touch with Robert Itoh at Yokomo USA on Monday and see if I can find out what the problem (if any) is with the RS MIP CVDs. It seems very unlikely to me that Yokomo will put out a product that you have to make modifications to make work. But I will find out for you guys.

Steve, if you have some in your shop just look and see if there's instructions in the packaging telling you what to shave, Robert told me there is.

You know, you would think that MIP would have fixed this long ago. The old CVDs did this as well when installed on the SD.
