You can always do it yourself. Had mine done and installed last November, after splitting the front chassis with a wall collision

Was that sanded and sealed? That's the right side near the back of the battery?

Default credit where it is due

Friday night marked the end of the indoor carpet season at Richfield Racing. Over the course of the entire season I broke exactly 0 parts. I've raced quite a few touring cars. The t4 2014 has been the best one for me by no short margin. This car has brought me a good deal of enjoyment and has made me an Xray fan for the foreseeable future.

Before you toss that out, if your running it on asphalt where its going to get the edges beat a bit. Try to clamp the really loose edges and then fill it with "fast glue" and then sprinkle some baking soda on it, keep doing that process till you get it built up to the thickness you need. It will look rough once it dries up but you can finish it by filing or grinding it flat. Not sure how much it will effect the flex of the car but that break will be hard as a rock, and you have nothing to loose anyhow.

Thanks for the info. Yes I run on asphalt so I will have a go at a bit of a fix. I also have some glass mesh I could use as a filler too

Default Front Gear Diff Oil!!

Hi,

I run in 17.5 blinky on medium to high grip carpet, what have people found to be the best weight oil for a front gear diff?

Also what would you recommend for outdoor racing on tarmac?

The baking soda is far harder than Fiberglas mesh and easier to use.
