TC SPEC owners or rc market:

i Am planning to change the frot driveshafts, lannyn to change the aluminium originals for steel ones

does 3 racing 3r-cy-14 driveshaft fits on tcspec?

and HB61398 44mmHD universal driveshaft ver.2 fits on the originals universal axles?

Thanks
for a good repalcement of the front driveshafts to steel ones... replace them with the Cyclone S version.. i installed steel in the front for sometime now and rarely have problems.. yes aluminum is lighter.. but for longevity, i now run the steel. Hardly an wear, especially at the joint. Been running mine for 2 months now, and only see a small bend in it..... As for aluminum, they bend too fast on our track, and the wear is too fast at the joint.
Original driveshafts $8 each.
Cyclone S steel shafts $10 for 2.

Have Fun!!!

its just the track material we use... and also i guess running a spool. tapping boards here and there take a toll on the driveshafts.... actually eventually makes a chattering type noise exiting tight corners.... sounds like a tire peeling off the rim, but more metal type sounds..

Have Fun!!!

It gives "TRUE" rear toe settings and it gives you an inbetween camber location compared to the stock rear hub.

Keep in mind if you're running stock classes with 1.7 idr's you'd better have a wiiiiiide set or pinions (big) and pulleys (small) to toy with...

First of all, good job Mike.

Second, you know everyone is curious about your set-up. Care to share?

yeah ill post when iget home from school, i cant remember what weight oil was in the shocks tho! I also ran my BMI/Surikarn foam edition in stock foam class, just missed podium, was tied for points but other guy had better time That is one hella stiff chassis tho, even by the xray guys standards! i should post some pics of my car and the race, my foam car is like a frankencar with the blue aluminum, but purple CVD's .

One thing i did notice while prepping the car before the regionals during teardown was that the BMI chassis does not use the same hinge pins (at least in the rear) because it hase the screw holes for the toe blocks drilled a different distance than the reg. chassis. So i couldnt put Ti-Ni pins in. and I had to use the pins that were with it, they are so worn (but not bent luckily) that on the front ends the pin is worn to a black and gold/brown color. the kind of color of a perfectly roasted marshmellow. I would like to know what pins they are if they are from an xray or something, oh and they have a flat end (sorta half circle) on one end (also the worn end) like they fit into a slot or something.

Did I mention i played the Rick roll song in my pits after i won?
