Yup that's it! Thanks Rob! And yes I figured out my problem with the ride height as well. Just got to use smaller retainers I guess.

Oh No, ProTeam with a FT kit? You must of been a good boy for Santa to bring you that. Did you get another ball dif to put in instead of the one-way? You don't want to use that on carpet.

Good luck with the build. Let me know if you need advice on BMI stuff.

See you at the track. I should be getting another kit when RC America gets em back in.

Yup I got one finally! Told you so! She's build and set up (kinda). The BMI is being milled today on Gloss Black. Should arrive next week. The car got a diff. when I built it. Heck the one-way never say light! Got some parts from Ashford coming today or tomorrow so we're almost there. But yeah long story short, I'll take you up on the BMI offer . See what you get now! See you next week then. I plan to be at DC bright and early!

I was browsing ebay and saw some some nice Ti screw kits up on sale for the FK, TRF 415, and Pro4.

Here is the link

Default Broken c hub

Just ran my T1R fo rthe second time and broke the left c hub. Should I replace with original composite or aluminium? What can be done to help eliminate future breakage? Thanks!

Dbuck, The cheapest way to go is just replace them with the standard composite c hubs but if you want to replace with aluminum I heard the Teamtamale ones are great. The best way to quit breaking them is try to stay off the boards.

I've heard that pdubracing or rubberneck bumper will also help...

I haven't ordered mine yet....

If you upgrade to aluminum C-hubs then you'll start breaking knuckles instead...

The P-Dub racing bumper is sweet. Every car should have one.

Hey Dave,

Do you have a pic showing the difference between the P-dub foam bumper and the stock Xray? I have been to the P-Dub site and seen pics there but nothing comparing the two.

Thanks, Mike

Hey, guys. Just wanted to report that both the Rubberneck and P-Dub racing bumbers are excellent and worth the purchase. (Not trying to play both sides of the fence. I have both and they both work great!)

I also ran the Tamale 6* C-hubs on my ride for the first time yesterday and after putting them through 6-8 practice runs, not a scratch on 'em. I had several hits going for broke on this nutty road course near me and the suspension held up perfectly.

Long live hot Tamale! Get yours now.
