i found out about them a few days ago, and i have one problem with them, they dont take paypal! i got all my cash in paypal, and well, dont have a credit card (no checking account either...) so all i have is a savings (im 17, cut me some slack..lol). i emailed them to see whats up, and we'll see what they say....ya think the majority of online stores nowadays would accept paypal i mean, it is much safer than entering a credit card number manually at some store, ya never know who might be peeking @ your computer!!!!

im actually waiting on jeff of speedtechrc to get in some ta05 parts! i've been waiting for a long time for him to get in the parts because everytime i get an opportunity to order from jeff, people always snatch it up before i do! dang tcs. LOL.

Do you need the parts in a hurry? Some of the EBAY stores out of Japan have great pricing on the stuff and take PayPal

You'll get some shims too, they'll help get rid of any excess side movement where the outdrives go into the bearings.

Thanks for the info.

Follow up question.
Im using 10.5t brushless motor is it advisable to chang my 1way to spool?
What will be the advantages and disadvatages for both?

in short, the spool is the most preferred option for a lot of racers. you loose some braking with a one way and you have to take a different line in general and sometimes you have to scrub some speed off as an extra brake.

hard to explain, but personally, i prefer the spool to the one way, one way is good for a fast flowing track, the spool is probably better on the twistier tracks.

it is just one opinion though... and opinions are like as*holes, everyone has one

is there anywhere to get a separate belt tensioner? my front belt has about 3/4 of an inch vertical play on it. I could take the diffs out and change the tension there, but I don't want to.

Why not? It takes about 3 minutes to do and works perfectly.

You could try fitting one from some other car like an Xray or Corally but why bother, just use the tension adjustment built into the bearing holders to adjust the belt tension. It takes only minutes to do.
