ttso: The deck mods look very good!! If I was'nt using the BMI chassis I would go with your setup, that's whats needed get the weight below the driveshaft. That's what makes the BMI chassis so great, the CG is very low with all the weight below the shaft.

Nostrixoxide: Maybe get your machinist buddy to go ahead with the alum diff gear project. Most people that have gear problems would diffently be interested in them.
I've kick around the idea of making brass ring gears and leave the nylon pinion and see what happens, but to lazy! especially when $5 will fix the car. ( not a cure, just a fix) Most machinist I've talked with say it would be easier to make molds and pour the gears instead of machining them.

Test run today. First of I facing a serious radio interference problem, heavily glitch just 100m away. This problem forces me to relocate the RX to top of steering servo.

Even with RX on top of radio plate, which make the CG slightly higher than original design. My car is still noticeable more steady than before. And weight is well balanced like my predict. Now the only problem is how to move RX under the radio plate to lower the CG. Hope tomorrow weather will be good so I can test with differnt RX configuration.

It's 3mm graphite, same thickness with AE graphite option radio tray. But without weight-saving cute, my plate does heavier than AE one, but also much secured (I think maybe too secured.. )



RX relocated to shorten the exposed radio line. Hope this will help to solve to the interference problem and still keep the CG low.

Very nice ttso. The plate also protects the stuff underneath from the nitro fuel.

I see the Spectrum DSM receiver system is now shipping from Horizon for the M-8. So it looks like the other radio systems should also ship on time. It should'nt have interference with the 2.4 Ghz system.

I`ve found that running 2 degrees of toe-in on the rear, and -2 degrees of camber helps tame fishtailing (oversteer), but you may need to go for a little more than this dependent on your driving style.

Ya, I found nuts-in is easier to disassemble/assemble than nuts-out when you need a shock position relocate...
