Tell me what you think guys, maybe I should switch back to the symetrical layout or?

Yeah, it's pretty amazing knowing that you can make what ever you want really

I just finished making a couple of carbon towers for my friends HPI Vorza. He had made the carbon plate himself, it wasnt perfect, but it looked okay. I then took some measurements and made a cnc program, threw it in the milling machine, and 2 mins later, job done

OMFG These new adds are Annoying !!!

But back to RC. Is there a way to make front and rear ratio 1:1 ?
Basically eliminating OverDrive ? I cant seem to find the part to do so.

I finally got my one way diff for my D3.

I have a question. Do I take the pink aluminum spacers off the solid axle and put them on the one way? I have them on now and they keep sliding off. With the solid axle, they clicked on, but they dont do that with the one way. Or do I jsut use the parts they gave me with the one way diff?

The pink sleeve that goes over the solid axle cups? You don't need them for the one way, only use them on solid axles.
