Hey Randy,

The Faster-Express screws have a matte finish. Tamiya is also coming out with their new blue aluminum screws and they are much shinier!

Most of the MS parts have a matte finish, I want to use aluminum screws on my TCS car, just make it as light as I can since its only 19 turn Im not really concerned much with strength.

Has anyone dropped the sotck one way outdrives and the lightweight outdrives to see what the difference is? I think I can feel a difference by hand but I am not sure.

What can be used as the servo saver instead of the Tamyia saver that comes with the kit?

Mine is just a couple of weeks old and it is starting to fail.

Black Kimbrough Medium Saver. I think it's part number 201.

Anyways, ran the 415 on carpet again. Got even quicker. Ran 6 degree caster blocks. I even went down one rate on my springs with AE Purple/f and AE Red/r. I might go back to Yellow/f and Copper/r. Seems my chassis was rubbing on the carpet when deep into the corners. I don't recall them when I ran with the Yellow/Copper setup. I'll see next weekend I guess.

Use a dremel and a cut of tool. I have done it befor, and even slotted my deck alittle, but I can handle a slot in my deck better than the cost of a new bulkhead.
All screws are drilled out. Yay!!!!! ......
the drill didnt touch the bulkhead at all, the just drill out anti clock wise..

ermm... anyone selling lower deck?hehehehe

Foams will fit the 415. If you have reversible suspension the car will be to wide.

Scroll up and look at forty6's signature for all the parts needed for a front diff.

Hey Jack do you know if these parts are Tamiya hop-ups, or aftermarket?

70 wt 2 hole pistons frt and rear.
a bridge- C block
arms shimmed rear with 1mm spacer behind arm.
1.5mm pro-dive
no sways
shocks one hole in from outer on 415 tower
one way, layshaft oneway
purple frt associated springs
droop at 6 on hudy
1mm spacer behind hex
Rear:
a block frt and rear
1 mm raised blocks
no sways
outer hole on 415 tower
yellow associated spring
droop at 6 on hudy
1mm spacer behind hex\
alloy rear hubs ball in center, spaced 1 mm up
cyan/magneta tires.
Parma Alfa
102/29 Genesis Binary 2 ROAR stock.

Car as progressively getting faster as the night went on. It will only get better.

Marc lowered the steering but used 4mm of spacers between the carbon plate and the ball nut where the steering turnbuckles goes.
