I have not driven that car but I have a ton of laps on the tcx and I know for a fact that moving the motor out is not a good thing.
I understand why they did it , I am just disapointed that they did.

I understand Josh's concerns as when you get a certain amount of force twisting the graphite under extreme high bite situations there can be some drag and weight balance issues as Josh stated. As I don't think there were any or many of us that don't have scrapes on our motor endbells after running at the asphalt Nats. Same with the local boys in Joliet at Lesiure Hours. So I know that the motor probably hits more than what we think. Hemesteede from what I understand isn't classified as a High bite track for him to run the TCX motor mount. Although the speeds in which he was traveling was high enough to twist the chassis to a high level. Which may be a reason why he was running the TCX mount. But in a high bite carpet track a motor rubbing can cause my car not to handle and be eratic. So to have to change the mount isn't a huge deal to me. Now the weight balance of the car with the battery I can understand as well. I will be waiting till I get my kit in hand and judge the balance from that aspect.

There will never be "the perfect" car. So pick one you can get super close and rock it. I'll take the car that I can swap motor mounts on. Josh you know there will be a way to adjust weight somehow.

The Battery is in the same position, only the servo was moved back 2mm compared to the TCX

So the steering posts that touch the battery now were moved back 2 mm "according to hara" but somehow the battery doesn't have to move?

Must be a Christmas miracle.

Default Spur fitment

Anyone know if any spur can be used or is it a special pattern?

You should be able to use the same spurs being used on the TCX, the hole pattern for attaching the spur hasn't changed. The motor mount now has 2 vertical holes as well so if you do use a small spur you don't have to try and go through the hole nearest the center pulley to try and attach the motor.

The spur has to have a 4-hole pattern just like the Xray spur gears have. There are a handful of spur gear manufacturers (e.g. Xray, RW Racing, Kimbrough) that put this hole pattern in their spur gears.

anyone's spur will work on this car as well - since its the same setup as the TCX

did you get one yet, Orlando?? I'm on the fence about getting one, when I already like my TCX

I guess the new tcxx still has the closed ball cups. But in hara's video they are open. Which will the car come with??

All we offer are closed but you can take a hobby knife and cut the top off of them.
