The part No. in that blow up is VZ013, this is the same as the one you have. You want the wheel shafts from the VoneRR.

For the guys running the Kawahara centre conversion, be mindful of the altered ratio. With 20-25 pinions the gearing is about right for larger tracks, for shorter tracks you will be looking for 19-24 pinions.

flat front sway bar
black long spring front
gold long spring back
0 front droop
4 mm rear droop
reset rear sway bar
front suspension layed down( tried standing the shocks up but the understeer got worse)
after a massive testing session on different tires and shore with the understeer still there I finally tried a slight rear brake drag. What a difference! It drives where i want it to now!
After all that messing around fixxing the problem was as simple as adjusting the brakes a tiny bit.......Rear brake drag was the way to go! This car just roll too freely without a slight brake drag. I realized this when i ran out of fuel halfway down the back straight and coasted around 4 corners and all the way into my pits.
Anyway thanks for eveyones help!

My os tr te was still underpowered so i bought a new novarossi IDM 3 port has anyone tried this engine yet?
Thats how I drive my car. Drag brake is the way to go.

Is the IDM engine .15?

They say to run the Delrin retianers, anyone got part numbers for these items? Sorry for all the questions guys, I just want all my eggs in one basket before I go and start assembling my new beast! I do appreciate all the helpful input.
Ok here' s the list of hop up required

Ball cups with delring inserts for MTX 3
Steel 39t Bevel gears for front and rear diffs OR... Kawahara Centre conversion (I got the conversion its much better)
MTX-3 rear hubs and axles
V-1-RR rear camber links
If you have a powerfull engine get the K factory centre bulk head
Swap the self tapping screws that hold the top plate on at the front and rear for nuts and bolts (see earlier posts)

Everything else is eye candy!

Cheers

How much budget (estimations) needs to be set aside for the above parts?

No for the 39 ring gears only. Add 50 bucks for that

It was great day yesterday running the car w/ the Kawahara Center Conversion. But then that rear grub screw fell off and wasn't able to run my 3rd qualifying. Made me start 2nd to the mains.

Made a quick look after the mains.....finding out that I have this CRACK on that rear center drive cup!!!


You guys where I can get this part?

Hey Zig....can you Please tell me where did you get that part? Did hold though for the mains. But have to get a couple spares for it for next Sunday and also I'm thinking of using Red loctite instead of Blue. Coz, did put a lot of blue and still feel off.

Same problem - just on the end by the diif side, the crack line I got - goes along nearby the grub screw. And that sound sound from the diff...seems louder than the stock steel gears.

But the car is ballistic w/ this set-up.
