Any tires chunk when you hit something, or dont have your body cut out with proper wheel well clearance. No companys tire will chunk any more or less then another...

There was a time when the Jaco wheels were very brittle. That could be part of what you were having problems with.. That problem has been solved now.

He has a bunch of other great Xray optional parts.

Do you have a number for your LHS? I have been trying to get ahold of two FK05 kits but nobody has them in stock, and according to RC Screwz, RC America has said 2-3 weeks for the next shipment.

Dude, didn't you see that several people have mentioned recently that the TC3/4 spring retainers also work?

Got a quick question.

Reading through the manual building my new 05 got to the length of the turnbukles that go from the hubs to the steering assebly.

It says:

Left 62mm
Right 60.5mm

and they both have scale drawrings. so i mesured them up to the drawring after i messured them. left drawring is shorter than the right drawring!

seems the drawrings have been swapped aroung or somthing?

Yeah, but i need the bling I can probably pinch a friends TC4 retainers until the Team Tamale ones arrive, he pm'd me with a lower shipping price due to the items being tiny that i wanted

Another update on the one-way foam/carpet setup for those interested:

http://www.teamxray.com/xforum/viewt...?p=25562#25562

Not a whole lot to share, just some info on rear anti-roll bar use and driving style recommendations for the setup.
