Cheers, Mark.
Glad it worked for you as it does for me.

Are you kidding Pyramid? Don't go putting Kyosho gear diffs in the car.

Seriously Pyramid? What maintenance? I have not taken my ball diff apart for very long time already. Still very smooth and grittyless.

Just managed to take out the stock 3 x 9.7 mm pin on the dogbone and replaced it with 3 x 11.7 mm ones for just the rear diff outdrive side dogbone. Will post pics later.

And for the 3 x 9.7 mm pins on the other side of the dogbone that get flattened and worned out due to overuse , I took it out also and turned it 90 degrees so that the flattened and worned out part is not in contact with the outdrive anymore. Walla. As good as new set of doggies. This trick is courtesy of NTC3 drivers.

Careful, you may need to start looking for a concubine to vent all that aggression.

OK, OK, only kidding ... time to get an 11 finned 5-port beast!

Default protoform bodies

I have just recently bought a nemisis and mazda 6 body but they dont seem to fit, the rear wing mounts are directly on top of the rear posts. How have you guy got around this issue?

With the mazda six, mount your body posts on the other side of the shock tower. They should then come through the front part of the rear wing support.

Aiks ! You revealed your latest trick ! Good job of hiding all that dirt with a freshly painted shell.

I must say that you've improved on your bodyshell trimming from the "old" days...

Yeah, you can do like what Mark does. Or join the "two towers" gang and do like what I did ! You can find it on mytsn on how Mark Green does his.

Ok, question about the bodyshell. How high/low do you trim the body shell? i.e. what is the gap between the bottom of the body shell and the track after the supension has been compressed?

When the front chassis hits the ground, there's a 1mm gap between the ground and the front bumper...
