Jason I see you, are u coming up?

EJ if you are racing Thursday bring 10 hard spools and 4 sets of the aluminum outdrives with you. 4 sets that's 8 total enough for 4 spools since from ordering parts we know set has many meanings aparetly in top language.

Hey guys,

Has anyone played around with Chassis flex much?... Josh you might be able to shed some light on this.

I've run the medium rubber wings so far, and preferred them over standard, but i'm curious as to what people have found in running the wings as opposed to the medium upper deck etc.

Is it better, or more noticeable running a stiffer top deck compared to different wings?... or do you prefer one over the other etc?

I am running Rubber/Asphalt by the way

Cheers

Robbie

Default Spool

One of the UK team drivers has been using the Titanium Racing Spool combined with the existing TOP Photon plastic pulley (with the outdrives machined out!).

The TR spool will also fit the TC5 and/or Yokomo BD 40T pulley but if you're having trouble sourcing them then this could work for you.

The new out drives? Or the cups from the old spool?

Ok
I don't like the cups because they brake fast here on my track.
I like the new spool more.

Can't speak for others but these aren't available in the UK yet.

In the UK, the V2 hardened spool will be available with steel outdrives next month. Following that, the alloy outdrives (with blades) will be available too.
