Elitehobbyshop.com had the gears last week, that's where I got mine. (there's a link in 1 of my posts a few pages ago) Fast, friendly service, as well.

If you run the rear diff tighter then you'll get more rear steer. The more loose the adjustment, the less positive the diff will be. The tighter the adjustment, the more like a locked diff you'll get. Less= more traction, tighter= less traction.

I use neg 3 degrees camber front and rear, front OUT 1-2 degrees, rear toe IN 1-2 degrees. You'll get an even tire (wear), too. I run my car at 4mm ride height, as well.

The screw that you're looking for is a M2.5 (2.5 mm diameter) screw. The 9450 servo also uses the same screw. However the newer 9451 servos use M3 screws. Same screws like the KO servos are using.

It is good to have some spare screws handy. Anyway, you can always go to a hardware store or a store which specialises in bolts and nuts around your place. I'm sure it exist somewhere. Specify that you want M2.5 screws. It does not necessarily be Philips type. You can use allen screws instead. I use allen type screws as they are easier to work on.

Can someone tell me where I can get a better deal ????
Just check out the next URL : http://shop.the-border.nl/customer/p...01&cat=&page=1 where you'll find the K-Factory centax for a much lower price. It will cost Euro 90,-- (based on current exchange equals USD 96,--)

Check if your shaft is bent. Check if the hole in the shock is bigger than normal. Green slime is just a lubricant and will not prevent leaks. Also, dont put too much of it.

Default Hot Tip from SIMON

Ok guys, I'm going to give you some really important money saving information. If you want K-Factory parts, simply give this guys an e-mail asking for K-Factory Parts. Although hes in Hong Kong, his prices are unbeatable. e-mail him @ [email protected]

Hey dudes, I was out driving my NTC3 today, and suddenly i started to slow down...when i hit the gas...nothing happend except for the engine increasing in rpm...the car looked as if it were a brick lying in the road that made some noise! Well i took of the body, and to my attention the gears...were bent. (not the gears on the engine). How Did THEY BEND????
It also looked like the second speed gear on the engine was hitting part of the back of the chassis....hmmm. Im confussed with this..when i get them fixed i might invest in metal gears, Anyone got an opinion on those? if they exist for it yet.

Thanks,
David

You wont ever get a spur gear that isnt plastic for a high RPM racing on-road car. The spurs need to be plastic because the alloy teeth on the pinions will actually strip the teeth off an alloy spur a lot quicker (nearly always within one tank of fuel) and this would soon become very expensive.

Gears shouldnt be hitting the chassis in the first place... Do you mean the Spurs? The big black ones? What size are you using?
