i think it depends...i'm still running the original (as in out of the box when i bought it), arms, c-hubs...but i did change my knuckles to aluminum ones..

I'm definitely not the cleanest driver and had my fair share of big crashes - and the cars been solid...

the kit chassis wont work for you. maybe an aftermarket one will.
the tc6 has alot of flex compare to tcx. but part support for tcx is pretty bad. you may have to wait for long time, i mean long time around 3-8 months for the upgrade parts

I saw the gasket and gears of Tamiya TA06 diff are so similar as that of Sakura, could they share the parts?

About the width, does it fit perfectly in the bulkhead, as what i saw, i guess it is a little bit shorter than the TCX ball diff, maybe must put little bit shim.

Best regards

What's the diameter of the solid axle? I have some out drive cups that I want to use. I would rather just buy the axle than the whole spool set.

I wouldn't jump to the conclusion that the stock chassis is BAD. The stock chassis is actually very good, but it makes the overall setup of the car more critical. The Exotek chassis broadens that window for your setup, so it isn't perfect the car still works pretty good.

Both chassis sets have their place, and are both very good in their intended conditions.

Hope that helps some

That's interesting to hear.
We have worked on the option chassis and spent so much time because it was
"really" hard to make it better than the original chassis. Yes, the kit chassis is that great from our testing.

Thanks,

Hey Mike, do you know if the TOP axle covers are a direct fit on HB drive shafts?

We run on multiple different track conditions for testing. The kit stock chassis works really well on low bite of-course with the flex and also on the high bite as now we want almost the same amount (may be even more) of flex for the high bite condition. The chassis works really well on both conditions.

On the other hand, the new option narrower chassis (#68760) has a bit different flex characteristic. We found that the new chassis gives the car more aggressive drive feel compare to the stock one. You might feel kind of hard to drive but for some condition it works really well. I think it's nice to have both the stock one and the optional one as setup parts.

Thanks,

I have found my tcx's to be very locked in cars, i really wish i could make them turn more for my tastes on pavement but they are competative for sure.

As an aside i am going to sell a few of them lol, coming up on carpet id like to put together a fresh kit. If anyone is interested please pm me.
