Most of us in the team use the super small steel shafts in the rear almost all the time and are happy with them.

Can't wait for my kit to go from on order to shipping. As I'm a hot bodies noob I'd just like to thank every body on this thread for sharing info. I will be racing on asphalt medium grip and coming into an Australian summer so when available any setups will be welcome.

Thanks Guys.

To see the manual just click on this link --> TCXX PDF Manual.
Fred, thank you for scanning and posting the TCXX Manual as a PDF.

Can you tell me what the Internal Gear Ratio is for the TCXX. I see that the kit includes a 115T spur gear, what is the largest 64P pinion gear that you could fit in the TCXX with the stock 115T spur?

You're welcome, my pleasure 1.95 (39/20) Not sure on the largest pinion since I haven't tried.

Fred I was looking to purchase spares. Do you know if there is a kit as a whole for an extra gear diff?

There will be a gear diff kit. I know that all the option parts/spares were slated to ship sometime after the kits were released, I just don't know the exact date.

Don't know if this is posted already:

three times W -> .hotbodiesonline.com/kit.php?lang=en&partNo=68299_preview
(Sorry can't post links because I don't have enough posts yet)

Scroll down and you find a video where Hara explains some features of the new chassis!
Looks like the page isn't officially realesed yet.

Regards,

Robbert
