Marcel Geiger is a German LRP Team Driver, he had made a few Chassis for his teammates. I think the Chassis is not for sale. I had buy my car from a Team Driver, he only drives Offroad.

Much cheaper too - AND you get 4 blades to a pack vs HB's 2/pack... Only downside, they are an obnoxious blue
3racing has 2 kinds, blue and black. only the blue one works?

3Racing work well and you can barley see the hideous blue.

I'm interested in running this car some in VTA Classes. We use 25.5 motors at our track an the FDR is usually around 4.0 or so. Has anybody geared this low and if so what spur/pinion combo are you using???
thanks

You will need the following combo,
48p 78Spur x 38Pinion = 4.003
64p 90Spur x 43Pinion = 4.081

Was testing today FF and FR block 1.5 complete.

Great result, the car is the way easier to drive and smooth into the corner.

Spacers under blocks 1.5mm complete.

Hey Guys,

New to the TCX and as everyone else is experiencing or has experienced I have a large amount of steering chatter

I have noticed that there are many options for reducing this by using Tamiya/Yokomo/Top dog bones and various required changes for the spool.

I have been hunting around for replacement parts and most are out of stock everywhere

Just to make sure I am looking for the right parts, can anyone tell me the suggested tamiya dogbone part number? is it this: http://www.rc-mushroom.com/product_i...oducts_id=6905

Thanks
