a 94t spur should give you good amount of FDR range to play with

When you say " inside outer hole on arm for sway bar (wide) " what does that mean ?
Thanks.

Outer hole on tamiya hubs.

We will have test sessions before/after TITC in Thailand this month. We should be able to release some option parts for the tcxx to improve the performance even better! Stay tuned..

How about we concentrate on getting the base parts back into the pipeline first?

Supply of spare parts from HP/HPI has been, to be blunt, absolutely terrible in the last couple of months.

I prefer the TCX motor mount on carpet or tight tracks as the motor is around 2mm further inboard than the tcxx motor mount and I think having the weight further inboard allows the car to roll faster

On big outdoor tracks the TCXX mount works well.

A lot of the competitor cars on the market seem to have their motor really inboard lately so I think running the TCX motor mount isn't really ever going to be a bad decision

Sorry, not sure if this has been asked before, but what is the biggest pinion I can use with the TCXX stock motor mount and 115T spur?

Thanks.

On the rear arms you have 5 holes for different shock positions since our arm are reversibe. Standard setup calls for using the middle hole (#3). On the opposite side of #3 we use #4 when we use the wide sway bar. So essentially holes 2 and 4 are outside of the molded ball for using the short sway bar, so #4 is inside to #2 but outside of the molded ball for sway bars hence "inside-outer."

Hi chaps,

Just thought I'd add my pennies worth about this car. I just purchased the HB TCXX and ran for the first time tonight, coming from the xray T4. Although its not quite there yet in laptime, its lovely to drive. (This is on a tight medium-high grip carpet track). Good steering and very consistent car. Went away from stock and changed the front wheelbase by swapping round the shims from .75mm/2mm to 2mm/.75mm and changed shock positions to 3 front 2 rear with speed 6 body. Can't fault the handling, it just needs freeing up some.

Can anyone give me a bit of advice to get the car to generally glide a bit more, rather than stick? - I will be adding tamiya DCJs also, which should help!

Thank you.
