Default 48mm swing shaft

Although the manual said if u using LW suspension, you will need 48mm swing shaft. At page18 Ghostfit already post how it looks like on LW suspension with 46mm swing shaft. Now here is LW suspension, A-D suspension mount, with 48mm swing shaft.

As you can see, swing shaft is all the way into diff. It's good since it provide best efficiency. But problem is: you need to get 48mm swing shaft...

So if you haven't get 48mm swing shaft and you plaing to use D suspension mount, you can still go ahead with 46mm swing shaft. Just your diff might wear a bit faster, but it wear sooner or later anyway, so... 48mm swing shaft is not necessary for LW suspension.

The play on the TA05 is acceptable for it's price range and general bashing, But I'll shim it up for the extra "Pimp" factor !

Thanks for sharing with us dude,

I've noticed that you didn't have any form of reinforcement on the drive cups. I dun think your stock outdrives will last very long with that BL motor setup ! ...suggest you find/make some 11 x 10 x 1.5 mm Alu rings and ca them to the ends of the cups (Refer to my past pics)

OMG, i can't wait I'll be ordering today for sure.. If Not then some time this week. I just pray to God this car is the shizznizz hehe... I pretty much got everything you guys are getting, cept I dont have a discharger, probably dont need one though. Other than that, whats a good Stock 27t motor? Right now I have a Monster Stock Pro and i've had it for almost 1-2 years. I dont have a comme lathe either. Hehe, all I did was change brushes. Everything totaled together + shipping I believe is around 466+60 shipping so around.. 526 w/o motor.

Chassis flex generally generates more grip, and makes the car more progressive, but may not necessarily be as fast.

Most of the dedicated rubber asphalt type cars use a thinner more flexible chassis.

Yes...Tarmac car will need more flex in the chassis to let it grip the low traction tarmac. Though need of grip will compensate in the quickness of the car.Car that flexes in theory are less agile,as the chassis flexes and slows down the suspension movement a little...

Got everything on today. It looks so sexy now...
I also did some balance testing. Seems the car is balance quite well if you consider my SS ESC is super heavy.
