I've heard that the RW gears will work as well. We have both the 2.4mm and 2.0mm pinned DCJ's available now.

Partnumbers for 2.4mm and 2.0mm pinned DJC's?

Partnumber for the outdrives needed for these?

Partnumbers for RW spurs?

MACH Heemstede worlds 2012 piston 6x1.3 and 6x1.1 were used.
These are not in the kit.
Partnumbers?

You guys still sand the edges of graphite parts and treat with CA?

Frankly, lately I don't bother anymore. But hey, maybe that's is all wrong....

For no rebound, fully compress the shock then fit the bladder and cap before you pull the shaft back out.
No rebound gives the most grip on tarmac ?? are you sure this is right. I always thought it was no rebound for carpet and half to full rebound for tarmac.

Yep, I did say "generally".
More rebound helps on bumpier tracks and riding curbs so you can end up running more.
I'd expect to run some rebound at say, Cotswolds and Bedworth. None at Snetterton for example.
You could probably do a faster lap on carpet with none, but it's just too hard to drive.

Tyres Sorex 36

Track medium grip
So that would bel 500Cst? So that would be about 41WT.

What is Losi 90 in WT or Cst?

At the worlds 2012 in The Netherlands piston 6x1.3 with 2000Cst is used. Any comments on that?
What partnumber would that be?

The only true way to know what 90wt may be in cSt is to try different oils to know what they feel like.

You can find the part number for our option 6 hole pistons at http://hotbodiesonline.com/ We only offer 1.1mm and you would have to drill them yourself to 1.3mm.

Thought of buying me the above. But now I am a bit confused as to 2.4mm and 2.0mm. Are these two different versions, or what?


Also looking for the spring set part number. Thought I saw it floating around somewhere on this thread. Been searching for almost an hour. Didn't find it. My bad.... Please help?

Do Corally HMX and RDX Phi'09 springs fit the TCXX?
Yeah I know HB springs are the best, but I still have all kinds of Corally springs and thought I might use them.


Where best to buy TCXX stuff when living in Western Europe?


Coming from RDXPhi`09 and Asso TC5 and TC6 I always sanded the chassisplate and sealed it with CA. I see more and more racers that don't bother anymore. I am considering going that direction also. Any comments?

Thanks.
Could one please provide me with part number?
(because it seems there are all kind of spurs, as I learned the hard way with RW Racing spurs....)

Recent information from UK distributor:"The TCXX is a normal spur gear fitting, so the RW ones should fit without a problem, although some of them will only fit with two screws rather than the four that the HB spurs use."
For sure I don't want the ones that only fit with two screws. It has to be four screws, as it was intended.
So the part number is important, in order to avoid wrong ordering.
FYI 48DP for stock racing FDR 3.5 to 4.5.

Fit also for TCXX I presume?

On these spurs you can use all four bolts?
