Thanks. I had seen that but in my head I thourt I'd have 2.3mm pin on my tcx. So won't need them for 2.0mm pin.

Sorry about the spur gear, it was a picture of Robinson for my Awesomatix...

This is the item mounted on my TCXX:

the origin chassis is not good : Cry:
Thank you
They are all optional parts and not necessities. This is a common occurence amongst all cars, them using other parts from other cars. Just like Tamiya and Yokomo drivers use our springs on their cars. Look here to understand the 2.25mm option chassis

It stands to reason that the pin on the Spec-R is 2.3mm and if so then you will need to use our 2.4mm blade with with the outdrives included with the gear diff. The gear diff comes with both 2.0mm and 2.4mm blades. The easiest way to know for the sure the pin size is to measure it with calipers.

If the item(s) say in stock on the site then they are in fact in stock. All product for North America ships from HB USA when ordered through the site. Last week was our month-end inventory, there is a notice of this on the account creation page. The "of" 11/8/12 should have been "after" 11/8/12. Give them office a call tomorrow to get more info regarding your order. Thanks

Hi guys,

Just after some feedback from other racers on Ceramic Ball Bearings, i was thinking of getting my TCXX kitted out with these bearings is it really worth it you think over the standard ones?

Thanks for your time.

Hi

Does anyone have the internal ratio of a TCXX when using the optional centre pulleys 19t and 18t?

Thanks

Just divide the number of teeth on the spool/diff by those on the centre pulley.

39/19 or 39/18

Fred,

Just wanted your input with the one piece FR and RF .5- 1.0 blocks. What does widening this part actually do to the handling of the car?

Actually using those blocks (1.0FF & .5FR) will make the front of the car narrower than using the kit setup of 1.5FF & 1.0FR. That configuration will generate more initial steering and the .5* of arm sweep will give back some of the mid/exit steering you lose by making the front end narrorwer.

So at the moment Im running 2.0FF & 0FR up front. Sweepeing the FR I will gain more mid/exit steering.

How will this apply to the rear blocks of the car? im currently running one piece 0RF & 2.5RR blocks

Also not to be impatient but, Yokomo got their spares up on amain. When will we get ours

I don't understand the point of your question about how this would apply to the rear of the car because arm sweep doesn't apply. Let me ask if you understand the effect of running less rear toe? Guys I've said this a couple times before, everything is in stock at HB USA if you need something contact your LHS and have them order it unless you want to pay more by ordering directly from HB. If you just want to see what the parts look like then you can look at the HB Europe site but even then you can't order the parts from that site. So please support your LHS by having them order the product you are looking for, they will appreciate you for it The part numbers for all spares and option parts are in the manual
