Anybody? What's a good list of parts to stock up on if you can't get them locally? C'mon, help a brother out, my kit shows up tomorrow.

Steering blocks, arms, and CVD bones is all. Get the BRP Bumper for the TC3 and do the modification as shown on the Corally USA site and you shouldn't have a problem with breakages.

That's a big friggen kydex bumper. Doesn't look like a BRP one but it would work to trace the pattern on.

You can also order a Rubberneck bumper from CorallyUSA for the car as well.

D.O.B.B.s.......... i'll try to stop by tomorrow night weather permitting.

Does anybody know what thread size the Duraluminium camber links are?

The reason why I ask is because I am looking at getting titanium camber links since one of my rear links broke in two just after a brief dash with the boards and I wanted to make sure that I get the correct size since I laready know the lengths.

I am somewhat disappointed with the durability of these camber links.

Anybody else have the same issues?

Better question is, will parts become scarce like XRay after they became popular...

Hopefully a resounding NO...

Michal101, what did you hit?

I've had a couple VERY solid board meetings in the last couple weeks...things like cutting the sweeper a bit too tight and the car bouncing to the other side...unharmed. I have not had a problem with durability.

Brian,

That is what concerns me since I did not really hit anything that hard at all. Maybe it just hit it the wrong way.

So, for right now I am hoping to find another camber link that will work so that I can go racing this weekend.

Yeah, it's funny that often times the worst breakages are the slight taps that shear stuff off (any car). I still find it interesting that you broke one of those links.

Default Camber link

Any Lunsford turn buckle will work fine or any standard size turnbuckle should work as well. I have lunsfords on my car.

Do any of you guys have pics of your cars with a specktrum and q2 using the big cap. Just need some ideas on the cleanest wiring possible. Does anybody have ceramics for the car yet?
