I am slowly going to start replacing the duratrax parts with Tamiya parts, I have the tamiya nuckles, kingpins, and servo saver on the way.

I think I will need to put the tamiya ball diff in as well as the duratrax one is crap

Will the Tamiya parts fit w/o much modification? More importantly are they durable?

yep, the kingpins, knuckles, servo saver, front springs all fit fine and seem to be much more durable than the duratrax parts,

I have been using the Tamiya thrust bearing with the Duratrax ball diff, this has made adjusting the ball diff much much easier,

got all the F103 gear from http://www.burienrcracing.com/

I have also managed to pick up a second hand Futaba S9550 low profile digital servo cheap that will be my next modification,

there is a another guy at my local track that is also now running a Delphi, he managed to fit the entire motor "box" and rear diff assembly from a F103 onto the delphi chassis, it looks pretty good.

Great! I can't wait to try 'em. I love how quick the Delphi is but those parts...man, they suck! Lol.

put in the S9550 servo in the delphi last week,

the extra torque has greatly improved the high speed cornering,

and the speed has made my driving much more precise in the mid field,

the guys with the F103's have nothing on me,

I will try to get some pics up soon,

Discovered today that the Delphi should not be raced on a hard packed clay surface. Oops...

Bumping this to the top. Does anyone still have this car? I would really like to find some of the hop ups. Anyone having anything they might want to part with, let me know.
