Guys, what tool do you use to get out the ch-clip in the diff? Or should I say where do I buy that plier? Can't find it at my local homedepot or frys...

No I put a regular button head screw thru them, you could simply use a ball stud (i.e. the ones that come with the shocks) ...or like weaponx said use the normal xray stuff ...I thought the xray shock ends were to "loose" dor my liking on the shock shaft (shock shaft diameter on the Tamiya's is smaller) ...and I went with the screw thru thr ball cup, because I didn't want the shocks "popping off" in the case of a bad impact ...I actually had driven screws even thru the xray shocks when I was using them for this same reason. General silicone's website is down ...but when you can go to www.gsracing.com and the part number is GSCL130BL "3 mm Alum. Cone Spacers - Blue".

..here's a pic of the "assumbly" I'm putting thru the shock ends, hopefully clear up the confusion:

Default latest rebuilt

latest rebuilt of my car with a few mods on it.

As I race on low grip tracks all the time, I took away the upper deck posts, as per XRAY's instructions.
Added a servo saver on the servo, as I have glued the original servo saver incorporated in the steering of the kit in order to change the direction from 90 degrees to 180.
Changed the position of the personal AMB from next to the servo, to in front of the front diff/spool/oneway.

John,

Your cars (the 414, T1 and now FK05) always look trick man! Super clean, the TRF shocks and just the right mix of silver and red hardware. I just built a 12th scale I named the JD Special

Thanks for the kind words BlackKat.
Naming your 12th scale after me is a great compliment. Post some pics, and love to see it!

Thanks, Charles

Just 2 things comes to mind:

1- Pull the diff apart and make sure you have the current style thrust bearing. (old style= silver, open casing; new style= copper, enclosed casing)

2- get soft jaw vice grips if you can. The shock ends are a PITA to thread on to the shaft. It is possible without it (as I have done several times), but it is hard not to score the shaft up without it. (Look for "Locking shock shaft pliers" from www.teamtamale.com)

Read back a few posts 1 or 2 pages. There has been some suggestions given to the essential mods and spare parts needed for this car. I know because I ask those questions!
