Thanks for the info. I may get one to try and make it work. If I need one in a pinch I would have one.

The diff is fine as it is so don't take it apart.

The P-Dub bumper is an aftermarket bumper that is way better than the stock bumper and will prevent as breaking parts even more. I will get you the link shortly

Another bumper with which I've had a great deal of luck is the Parma ultimate foam bumper for the TC4. The holes line up rather closely and the foam has just enough give to it to fit. You have to do a bit more dremel work on it but it really fills out the front of the body. I've never broken a C-Hub but, I used to bend the snot out of the screws that hold the hingepin holders in place. Since I put that bumper on the car, I've not bent one yet. The P-Dub is a little bit TOO hard and it doesn't dissipate the energy of an impact at all. It just transfers it to the chassis. The Parma bumper is a bit softer foam and it will absorb and dissipate the energy of an impact 1000% better.

I ran the P-dub bumper on the RDX. It worked great. Parma makes a bumper for the T2 (using it now) and it works great also. Can't go wrong with either product.

Not to pre-judge your driving but if I were you, I'd go ahead and order a new bumper now or your Break-in period could be a literal one. Some (I) tend to drive a little hard even with a new car which could take a little getting used to.
I've also decided that one of the "flaws" with the T2 is that the threads on the axle tend to stick out too far and they are the culprits that cause the infamous C-hub damage. I added axtra washers to the outside of the wheel mounting nuts but others have just gone with Tamiya 6mm Hubs. This "Hides" the threads inside the nut and keep them from "Grabbing" the boards. (Couldn't be My driving)

Now that the car is assembled I see what you mean about the axle threads....
When I put on the foam tires that came witht he kit they rub against the arms and knuckles....

And I ordered the bumper....

Cool S U R G E !

Mr. Northern Va. Racer ,

Also when you run foams you have to use the inter shock hole on the rear arms , So the tires dont rub . Outer holes used with rubbers tires !

Also rear shock tower where the roll centers R (the four small holes)you need to reinforce them , thats the weakest part of the car . You can add washers mod. them to fit ! Or someone makes the upgrade for them also !

Xray revised the shock towers after the early batches. They have more material around the roll centers now, so I'm pretty sure that modding it isn't really necessary anymore.

Tony, I'm looking forward to running carpet again soon. Gotta love the dirt, but I don't love the hour plus drive to go race. If you can, send me your set up. I'll be getting the BMI kit for it soon. Also, how does the KD compare to the C2 and the Atlas 19t? Haven't ran one yet.

I'll send it to you. Great pick on the BMI chassis. It really stiffens the car up. There is no comparison with the KD and the C2 or Atlas. The KD is awesome. Get ahold of EA and you'll see what I mean. See ya soon. "Now back to your regularly scheduled topics."
