HeyTroy,
Do you have any M-03 gears in Seattle. The one that the pinion rides on is missing a few teeth after one day of running! Nobody here in So. Cal. has any, not even Gyro's where Deven works!
Help!

i was supposed to buy it the other day but i'm still reluctant because of the price and you have to buy two of those to complete the front and the rear just not yet sure if that aluminum bulkhead is for performance or for bling only

Those bulkheads will add heft to your car, don't forget. I don't know if the extra rigidity is worth that cost (the added weight) when using a tub chassis. For my TA05, I bought the 3Racing aluminum bulkheads a while back for ~$20 each. I didn't buy them for rigidity however, but rather for the ease of maintanence. The two piece upper bulkhead makes it much easier to take diffs out and put them back in.

Hey guys, I need major help here. My wife was building her TA 05R. (of course I'm helping her with the diffs and links.) Well an accident happened, she lost one of the metal bearing in the steering rack. I know it's an 850 size. what size would this be in normal __X__ size. I would like to replace these with proper bearing any how. any help would be great.

Sounds like the spool would be a good idea, ive used a tighter set diff with fairly good sucess, just dont overtighten it or you could snap an outdrive.

Im in the uk, so im not really sure about places in the usa

I use rc mart sometimes and I hear precision rc is good too if your looking for an online shop instead

the price of the 3racing aluminum bulkhead is just right Tamiya's aluminum bulkhead is selling here with our LHS is around US $60 to $65
