Actually I do not. I tossed the package when I opened them and never gave it a thought.

If you contact them Im sure they could help. This is exactly my email from them.

I am out of the DCJ for Tamiya, however I have a few options for you:
1.Send Yokomo ones. They are virtually identical.
2.Send you some of our own DCJs, with a Tamiya compatible bone installed (our DCJs are a bit more durable.)

Anybody tried any of the ArrowmaxRC TCXX parts?
-Towers, chassis, upper-decks, floating servo mount?

How is the quality compared to the kit pieces?

Hiro San,
I notice you only use two screws on the upper deck to fasten to the motor mount.
Do you raise your upper deck?

I currently have the rear layshaft screws installed to limit the flex a bit. The car is a real noodle without any screws installed. Which may be the ticket in certain conditions. I plan to test all options soon.
Have you tested all the options?

Two screws on the bottom of motor mount?

Not yet. I should be at the track this weekend. At the latest next weekend.

I'll chime in here after I get to do some testing.

He's referring to the four topdeck screws that hold the layshaft in place.

Some set-up sheets are showing the use of only two rear screws. I know that on JJ's carpet setup he was running the topdeck raised 2mm with only rear screws in place. He was also running a v2 topdeck. Not sure what the v2 topdeck even looks like or how it compares to the standard though.

I found a small picture. Can see the upper desk is raised and only using two screws. But cannot see any difference in the upper deck.

Hello Hiro.
Thank you in advance for a kind reply!

When new option parts will be definitely available ? (suspended servo mount, the new top deck, short shock absorbers and ultra lower tower...and so on) We are waiting a long time but apart from official drivers I do not think that others persons had the opportunity to use them.

My personal point of view is that HB-Hpi racing is not present in the market like others important rc brands like yokomo, xray etc. and this is very sad, because I know for sure that a lot of people really like the HB tcxx.....but.....if upgrade attitude is so slow and parts not available is normal that a lot of owners decide to sell the car and choose another brands...
It's not my turn to sell the car but I really can't wait for new parts, upgrades and so on.

Thank you again.
Ciao!

That topdeck looks to be cut a bit different than the stock piece. It's missing the front steering brace mounting hole. The cutout up front goes back beyond where that hole would be. Changing the flex up front a bit.

Hi Guys

Here is the setup I will be starting with next week in Germany for ETS. This setup also works great on Sorex 28JB tyres with HPI Silver Springs all round and LRP 2 additive.

Hi Stefan
Any comment about 1mm shims under pivot blocks, does it prevents from body roll on high-grip carpet?
Thanks.

Hi mate

I use 1mm under the pivot blocks in pretty much all traction conditions as for me it just gives me more overall grip compared to 1.5mm. However, on high traction tracks I think it also prevents the car from traction rolling especially on carpet where the car tends to slide/move around a little initially before flipping.

If I think the car is rolling over the rear too much I have used 1.5 all round at the rear before but I always keep the front of the car at 1mm :-).

Why do you use the TCX motor mount and raise it by 0.5mm?
Do you place 0.5mm spacer under the top deck at the bulkheads?

My 2.0mm and stock 2.5mm upper decks do not have any hole for front steering brace.
