no need for doing it this way. just plug the wire in and push the batterie in the slot. There will be enough space. :-) looks much cleaner this way. maybe I'll make a pic tomorrow and show you what I mean.

was that on the rear??

as far as the excel delrin diff halves, they last a very long time and once set no diff adjustments needed. however i find the same with the stock ones. not sure what the advantage is.

Maybe the weight!!! Lighter rear diff , maybe more stability at the rear???

I'm running foam on carpet, had the aluminum diffs front and rear. The front notched first. Maybe I'll try to widen the slots and use blades.

thanks, maybe on pavement it won't be so bad, i have the spool and diffs and thier so pretty i'd hate to ruin them, ( i didn't buy them to go faster just for the coolness factor)

on another note, sheldons hobby is having a 60% off sale and they have a couple of sets of the alum rear hubs. problem is they are not doing phone or internet sales but if you know someone in the bay area that can hook you up....

note #2 tried the front toe blocks, wow. way to touchy, took off the 0 degree front steering knuckles and installed the 1's, changed the white yok spings for the old school orange ones, car is money right now, if your running med to high bite asphalt you are welcome to pm me i will send you my set up. this set up is with a spool.

Yes, I ordered the same piece and had to call Yokomo USA to verify it's position. Sucks that you have to remove material from the arms to make them clear but should give more turn in.

do you run with 1deg front-front toe mount only with the 0deg front-rear mount? or can you pair it with a 0.5deg front-rear?
