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...

I am just sharing my experience. And I hit plenty of stuff.

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.
