nice. thank you
quick question... does having more belt exposed w/ these bulkheads offer more chance of getting debris jamming up the system?

also, how much "slack" should my belts have?
thank you

I have never dropped a race due to stuff caught in the drive train i drove the car like that for about 9 months (600+ mins on the track)

As much as possible without them slipping but with the rubber they stretch tons so you should think about upgrading to arimid or kevlar

Make them a little lose but watch for stretch and adjust accordingly


I have seen black, blue, white and grey arimid/kevlar belts

The turnbuckles thread are opposite on either end. The end where the "nut" has a line follows the common convention of clockwise to tighten, the other end requires you to turn counter-clockwise to tighten.

Hi

I'm having an issue fitting trans-am tires on my Ta-05. The front tires hit the ball cup and the back side of the steering knuckle. How much have you guys shimmed your fronts in order to get the front trans am tires to work?

Thanks for the help

I'll have to find the part number, but I bought a Traxxas hex. It came with one thick, which is a little thick than the Tamiya plastic and one thin.

The 2 together I use on my son's TA05 since it dosen'e have the lock on hexs and I use just the thin on mine with the blue lock on hexs.
