Yeah I noticed it. That's why I said new top deck? I kind of wished for it as I noticed the 417 had some bracing there for a reason. My guess is it's more for a specific track, but I think it would make the frontend more consistant flex without using the stiffening on the steering rack. I'm sure someone will explain.

I'm sure my Futaba 3pk receiver won't fit. I'll be mounting stuff soon.

you dont need a micro reciver to put both a tekin and the reciver flat. i was able to put my Sanwa 801 servo in the short servomount hole. and runs a sanwa 2.4 ghz reciver (old version) and a tekin. only problem is that you are not able to use all the motor movement. but i can gear 5.0 with a 106 tooth spurgear. i dont think i need more in a 17.5 boosted class

Indeed, the Max Carbon ones simply allow the inner link to be in line with the inner ball end (using L1 & L2 QRC's) and outer position ball end (haven't compared as I've never used the outer position)

Can someone please suggest a gearing for running a 17.5 Phantom with an LRP TC spec v1 (no boost) on a medium-size indoor carpet track, temps currently in the 50's? Need a spur/gear combo that will actually fit properly as well.

50/100 will give you a 3.80 FDR.
That's a good place to start.

[QUOTE=flatspunout;8259604]I tried this and would recommend to everyone running it to look closely at the top deck after installing the post and make sure it isn't bowed up slightly. The post I used was also from the original T3 and although it should be the correct height it was slightly too tall and caused the top deck to flex upward in the middle. Lay the chassis flat on blocks or a setup board and try to slide the post under the top deck towards the front bulkheads and see if it catches on the top deck. If it does the post is too tall and will cause the top deck to bow up.

-rocky b[/QUOTE
i have checked my car a few time and the post doesn't bow my top deck, maybe you might want to check to make sure your car doesn't have a tweak in it. a lot of club members are running the post in there car at our club and i haven't heard anybody saying that there top deck is bowing. there could be a flaw in the post you have so i would double check it.

Frank b,

What is the difference between the standard roll holders and the Max Carbon ones?

Thanks
Karl

Why is everyone running the center post? How does it change the car?

it just adds more locations to adjust the roll centre and i find when moving the arm forward or back the location of the rods can have a straighter line to the hubs, you can also fine tune the roll center for more precise adjustments.

i have added the post because i noticed the top deck was compressing a little to much. there also was a racer that broke his top deck after a collision and i have never seen a top deck break before, the only reason would be the top deck is compressing to much. so a post was added to stop the compression of the top deck and adds extra security but allows the flex needed for traction and also it just feels a little more stable on the track....

Have you really never seen a broken top deck? We see them break fairly regularly on our tracks down under, we must drive faster

I broke 4 on my 09 by June this year... quick tip from a resident guru, and never had a problem again.

The topdeck where it sits over the layshaft bearings is awfully thin on the T3'11. That would be my only concern with breakage.
