You can still use your TCX rack on the TCXX chassis. It will just be positioned 2mm back and you will need to add a 2mm shim to get the ackerman back to what it was on the TCX.
thanks, Shaun

everything from the TCX will bolt onto arrowmax chassis
remember if you get the Arrowmax lowered shock towers you will need to use different shocks...i.e. Xray T4 or the CSO small shocks.

Chassis is very nice....the floating servo mount is very trick.

thanks, Orlando I already am running the lowered shock tower (spec-r's) and like them, but am running the standard shocks - didn't try a smaller shock on the car since I like how it runs at the moment. but then again, I've only run this for USVTA lately

So did everyone pretty much jump off this thread and onto the TCXX thread? I just didn't want to be double posting if so.

sadly, that's your best bet...I know I'm still running the chassis - love it -but everyone else is over there

saw your post in the tcxx thread, don't know about the bearings, but if the graphite one fits (which I have the exotek version), the the aluminum one should..my only concern would be whether it would fit under the upper deck

Default Rear belt

Need Help. Got a used TCX 2 years ago, broke my rear belt. In the book the part number is 68704 ordered 2 belts part number 68704 64 tooth. It won't fit, the belts are too small. I rotated the bearing holder and it's still to tight. Can anybody give me a hand? Thank You

Center pulley 20 tooth, rear def 39 tooth. New rear belt part number 68704 64 tooth. Fits so tight you have to put both hands on front and rear and if you let go of one hand one side will pop off.
