The roller diff is still around. THe roller was always an optional item not standard in the kit

Well early on when the pics were posted they didn't say it was an option or standard so some of us assumed it would be standard.

From my recollection early on the roller diff was listed in the list of features as an optional part.

Whatever , the car is a very good quality fit. Everything has gone tiogether very well with very few issues.

It is true that the car has a lot of features the same as the Tamiya.

There are a lot of small things too that are good . Like the steering lock pin that allows you to lock the steering in the centre when doing turnbuckle adjustments etc

+1. Not everything on the list below is standard.....
The front arms and steering blocks are like Xray items.

I did mention the steering locker in my 3a.m post, which was rather detailed, that was until my browser had an epic fail when I tried to submit !! Hence the brief post !
I left the pin there while I set the servo up, adusted camber and toe out aswell.

They are features of the car. Doesn't necesssarily mean they are standard on the kit

The roll centre shims are not part of the kit either .. but available for the kit

Same for the weight balancers

But whatever .. I am hardly going to complain as the car is great value

The RDS was always an option, on 3racings website it states OPTIONAL.

Anyway can't wait for mine to come in Tuesday or Wednesday, taking off a half day to build it. I will be at the track, Thursday-Saturday.

All I am saying is the way it was worded was confusing...it is probably a translation thing. Option parts should be listed separately as option parts, not with the rest of the standard parts as that makes it look like they are standard. Unless it is part of the car it isn't actually a "feature" until after you buy it.

Ok guys my mini review.

I built the car last night, so far all was good expect a few things.

1. There were four inner hinge pins in the kit one of which was 10mm shorter then the other 3 =(. I still made it work but it looks like I have to order a new set.

2. Next has to be the easy to access spur gear adapter. First I hate those little shims they are a pain. Next you need to run a spur gear with some pretty big holes, these are not for the mounting of the spur gear but to access the motor screws, so you can change pinons. Its also a pain in the butt to remove every time, did it three times and hated it every time.

3. Shock springs - These things are so hard their usable period.

Other then that everything went well, car came together, just have to build the shocks, mount my electronics and figure out weight placement and throw a setup on.

I need to figure out a good spring kit... was thinking of going TA if anyone has any input let me know.

They are identical to the 3racing mini shocks, except the collars are three times as thick.
I used the mini springs to obtain the correct ride height. There are also -1mm lower retainers as an optional part. The mini springs did the trick for me though.

No, sadly not yet.

Due to some unforseen circumstances, it may not be for a week or two, which is really peeving me to say the least.
But I need some new rubber to do the car justice and my time is a little short at present.

I'll certainly post here when I do run the car.

Hi Troy

See the 3r reseller or email 3r direct im sure they will repalce the pins.

Spur gear setup, yeah it is a little fiddly, the 3r guys at TITC showed me the easiest way, they flicked the belt off the front pulley, giving you lots of slack to be able to pull out the layshaft etc. Re spur gear i have tried a few and the kit 3racing spur is by far the easiest, as well as very good quality (easily rates with RW and Xenon)

Springs - Word is ther was a packaging error and the incorrect springs were packs in the kit, i believe replacements will be made available, again see where you purchased it from.

Look forward to seeing how you go on the track.

Ok I found out that having you hinge pin 10mm short does not work and it came out last night while setting droop. So I placed an order for more hinge pins and tons of spares mostly, c-hubs, steering blocks, front and rear arms, a 3 degree toe block and rear hubs.

The next order will be the weights when they get in stock.

I had bought two spur gears neither of them worked so I actually drilled some holes in the spur big enough to adjust the motor and now the spurs work. The problem isn't getting the spur out but putting it back in.

Some other things I found out.

Can't use a 112spur, it clears the diff but not the chassis. I saw in the default setup sheet that a 106 will work, so im guessing thats the highest I can go?

The steering system in this car rocks, love the locker pin and love how easy it is to find zero.

All electronics fit with no problems, Futaba 9551, SR3000, Tekin RS, Duo 17.5 with heat sink and fan.

I will post some picks tonight.

Now I will just have to wait till tomorrow for my pins to come in. First test run will be tomorrow, BTW I am using Tamiya Short Springs which seem to be working perfect right now.

Is there a different way to solve the ride height problems? Different shocks? Shock shafts? Collars?

Is there going to be an update from 3Racing?

Best Regards

Robert
