The Hotbodies team is running strong here at the Nats. Ty is running well with the new TCX, remember he hasn't run On-road asphalt in a long time. There are also 3 Hotbodies in the top ten of Expert 17.5 We are all working together and getting faster every round.

looks like the same car he ran in andernach at the ETS (and also appeared at the worlds possibly the car referred to as reacting more aggressive):

it is still the gear diff for the 416 probably he also used this in andernach.

for the people looking to convert with the tamiya front pulley stop using the white one.
i think tamiya part number 84050 is the same 37t pulley but in black!

As for the drive shaft blades, if you use hb drive shafts the blades should also be the hb. If you use tamiya drive shafts, the blades should be the tamiya blades. I just don't know if those blades are compatible with hb drive shafts.


Hiro, I now this is the TCX thread but can you put the Tamiya gear diffs in the TC ? Actually my biggest worry are the belts. Will the TC belts work with the Tamiya gear diffs in the TC ?
Thanks.

There was a post a couple pages back regarding the Spec-R and all other parts to fit it in the TCX.

Or, more likely, if the bottom deck is found to be better in some conditions then it'll get released as an option part....

Jeez, some people really let thier minds wonder, when sat infront of a computer screen.

But on BD5 They use a Chassis just like Retail Version Tcx Chassis ! with many Cuts
At the end of the day they should find the best design works flawless on every condition because most of the racers hasn't got sponsorship deal and chassis options are not very affordable ...
but its a bit too late now...
