Hey Dan,

Can you please have Troy contact me or OG through email? I'm intersted in the spool, especially with the results I got from the E3.
Hopefully I will have my car this week.

Have any of you guys tried using the upper hole in the front steering hub?, if I'm not mistaken this provides you with a bit of aggressive steering or a faster reacting car, another tuning option that can be considered.

Later

He is working with Steve @ Speedtech to carry the parts at a great price and alot easier availability. He is also working on some parts for the R3 and Yok SD.

difuser... since you'll have two 415s.. and i might be getting another one if steve has extras..... wanna swap one way halves.. that way we'll both can make a front spool? we'll just need the F103 part. according to that image that rod posted. PM me and let me know.

Ray if I could figure out how to get this POS wheelchair on the airplane I might come back but you would also have to take out all that fuzzy SH** on the racing surface.

Chris- we'll see I want to see Troys parts first.

Tristan are you saying the forward hole on the steering arm? If so yes I run that most of the time. If the surface is loose I will run the rear hole on the arm. Say hi to Tom for me also. I am sure Troy is talking to OG already he still has to do the proto work on the parts for now though

Dan, will do. Plan on coming up here on June for the CTCS, Tom will be here. He made a fix pulley using the ones from the TAOx line but I have to confirm once the car is here.

Graphite plus, offset carriers, belts... as you can see, every car kit manufacturer changes things along the way. as people use the car, they adapt and change to what most try to run. i am currently waiting for my 415 from my local LHS... i have ran most all the normal cars, tc3, xxxs, xray, etc. and i always come back to my Tamiyas... plus, i usually like to be different than all the rest of the guys at the track!
AMEN BROTHER

Why go through all that trouble with the keyed oneway halfs to make a spool. Just through some JB Weld in the bearings put it together and in a few hours you have a very solid spool.

Has anyone used the inner camber link holes on the shock towers? Any significant difference in handling when compared to the default positions?
