Are there any aftermarket parts for a casing over the belt to stop stones getting into the gears?

Can someone get Fred Medel to post his Vegas set-up on here? I plan on running my ta05 on carpet/rubbers Friday night.

Thanks,

The TA05 goes fine in the asphaslt ...

Only the open diff are not so happy with the little dirt ... they need to be clean and rebuild after 10-15 packs.

PS: If you use 0.4 module like me ... is better to check & clean the spoor time to time.

I used 45wt on the front, kit locations on the wishbone and tower, 40 wt rear and I stood the shock up one hole on the tower, I used Tamiya Yellow springs all round on the TRF shocks. it was precise on this setup.

Thank you-Do I also need o-rings on top of the bladders in the shocks with this set-up?

I just built them as is, with urethane bushings there, not sure what difference the o-rings will do at the moment, very new to TRF shocks I am.

I'll mess around with the o-rings tomorrow night if time allows. It gives more rebound on the shocks-usually advantage when running soft oil and soft springs.
