    the real 'big' one that most go for is some type of steel front universal shaft...if you're running mod, or a not-so-clean driver, the aluminum ones have been known to snap and/or twist
  • understanding tcx
    hello guys,

    I have several questions about this car:
    1.- I have notice that the suspension arm are reversible, I would like someone explain me how to get the maximum of this, they have 2 ways of installing and I would like to know in which situations do I have to put the arm in other position.
    2- ther are no "low-grip" setup sheet, does anybody have setup for asphalp very low grip track, please? I have look for them and I only found 3 or 4 setup sheets
    3- I have a lot of troubles understanding the roll center in this car, can anybody tell me why should I put shims under the blocks right out the box? the car is a little bit undrivvable...

    thank you guys!

    - 3 hole pistons for shocks
  • The TCX is race ready right out of the box. Here are some hop-ups that are important IMHO

    -3 hole 1.1mm shock pistons
    -Steel 46mm dogbones (when Hotbodeis releases them )
    -Hotbodies titanium tie rods (strengthens the car)
    -Some Pink and Blue HPI springs

    dunno....yet I have 2 sets on order but they just shipped today from overseas - supposedly I'll get them mid-July...Not sure if i'll swap them out right away or wait until the 3Racings one i have break

    either way, for the price they aren't too bad - still not quite as good of a deal as the 3Racing ones (set of 4 for about the same price - versus set of 2)

    It will allow more flex overall then the stock chassis. It mellos the car out and also lets it drag less on the edges.
  • is after market chassis better for asphalt or carpet?
  • The standard chassis works great on Asphalt. Either kit or Smokem are the best for asphalt depending on grip conditions
