sorry I cannot be too bothered looking/googling it up, but are the nt1, xceed, KM metal gears?

nice work. i find it interesting to monitor the preferences of the drift cars based on how they need to work on the course.

this a rare moment of generosity for someone who wants something handed to them, but here you go: (now get out your $$ for 'luxury' diff gears)

Have any of you guys had issues with the front chattering when going lock to lock on the steering? I just built a new car for the Nats (so I know there is nothing bent or broken) and the front wheels chatter bad when turning the wheels....?

FYI, Thanks.
Took a look at that, wow I didn't really know they were that cheap. Can you run these straight out of the box (asphalt) without need to immediately upgrade or change anything? For the price I may have to grab one sometime.

Edit: Probably wrong thread... if no answer here I'll check in the correct one

Not really. You running mod or blinky? Gear or spool? I would say run some 416 ecs or whatever axles from RCMarket. Not the SpecR ones, but Arrow? I've never had durabilty issues running them with a gear diff up front. But its a little late for that if you are prepping for the nats. Did your old car have this issue?

On another note, I doubt I will run touring this weekend. I'm wussing out with the 100+ degree temps... Hehe I'll just run the evening offroad race.

Yes! Have not found what was causing it. I also noticed this when I built my car.

Isn't this what the new double universal drive-shafts are supposed to overcome?... not sure if 3Racing have them yet but if Tamiya ones fit I am sure there are some somewhere

On a different note - which body are most people using with this chassis?
