For the front belt I ended up using a second tensioner on the chassis plate out of spare parts. Tam diff is MUCH smoother than spec r, 1500 in tam diff feels like ~1000 in spec r. Word has it that there is quite a bit of variation however. Pm Korey for the whole explanation lol.

Hope this helps
Dude, did u try to fit the Tamiya 417 gear diff set into a Ta06 pulley which is 39t, same as our HB pulley

I think it's just a special package deal that shop is putting together, not an official kit. Like Hiro said, he WORKS at HPI/HB and has no clue what it is.

The rumors have been rampid in here lately!!!

I received my new shock towers and narrow chassis last Friday. It was our last outdoor round on Saturday and I changed to the new shock towers during the day and definitely saw an improvement in grip - the shock towers along with the new three hole steering blocks made the car very nice and linear to drive along with lots of grip. I didn't get a chance to put the new chassis on.

I am now rebuilding my car with the narrow chassis and plan to run the shock towers, chassis and steering blocks along with a gear diff front and rear for indoors on carpet. I have been running dual gear diffs outdoors (1000wt oil in the rear and Serpent cleaning putty up front) for the last few outdoor events and it has been fantastic.

Hoping this will be the ticket indoors... and hoping the top deck arrives this week as well. Really enjoying the current upgrades
