Martin,
I see you are running the CGM steering mod and sometimes using this with MR4TC C hubs and sometimes with HB C hubs, what effect do these different hubs have on the car?

I'm currently running the CGM steering with the standard BD hubs, but have removed about 2mm from the hub to increase steering lock. I'm thinking of trying the HB hubs, but will this be much different than what I'm currently using?

Thanks

what about my new rear differential?



it belonged to an XRAY NT1...
I machined the original pulley with a lathe and then assembled and original Yokomo pulley which I had "carved" to fit the diametre.

Swingshafts are a mixture of Tamiya and Yokomo...

good idea but not for a touring car

a gear diff always lacks some traction even though it cannot slip

... you know... lipos, brushless and foam tyres make a standard diff last very little time...

Rear diff looks nice...

Martin, do you run your car with the narrow hex?

I used to use the narrow hexes but with a 1mm spacer against it -> same width as kit hexes but i just liked the clamp type hexes more :-)

now i use ZS-011C hexes which do feature the same width as the kit hexes but are clamp type, so no more spacers required

hey guys i think i might found the alu rear hubs from the prototype

http://www.genkidoridori.com/index.p...roducts_id=447

these arent the normal suzuki rear hubs as the old ones were part no TS-2101 which are discontinued now i think where as these ones are part no TS-2106

cant really tell from the pic but it looks like its only got 2 mounting holes like the ones on masami's car.

says its for the sd and drift which would explain why it could fit the cgm arms if someone was right in saying they were

theyre not as curved the back of it as the prototypes looking at it more carefully now.
