Why all this?? Are you going to 'copy' Marc Rheinard or do you want stuff which fit best to you?? Sounds pretty weird to me if you want all the stuff Marc has, especially when you're a newbie.....

I just want to know what he uses. It doesn't mean I am going to "copy" him. I may end up buying another product. But it's a good idea to know what the professionals use.

Could he be using a KO receiver and a Sanwa Transmitter?

That's possible. In the past, when he was using M8, he use a KO reciever too.

Tamiya must do something about this...

How much does one ballend cost?? They could have given 1 extra to add customer value.

Harsh, she looked pretty dialed today! i don't know how many packs you had ran through her before i got there, but the 2 runs i saw were pretty darn quick.

If you still like her in a month, Ronin and I will show you the "secret" Tamiya handshake!

Whats the secrect to building these diffs? I followed the directions and even tightened all the way down the diff still feels extremely loose.

Thanks,

if you put an allen wrench in each outdrive slot, try and make the diff move by rotating it. if it moves, it's not tight enough. if it doesn't move, back off the screw until it does move with a bit of force, then tighten down a bit more and it should be fine.

don't tighten it down all the way though

Does the diff pulley need modifying? Because the diff balls do not appear to extend out on both sides of the pulley.

When assembled the diff does not want to tighten up and feels like it is just the diff rings rubbing on the diff pulley.

Thanks,
