Yea, I will be down there. It is gonna be a rough weekend of racing for me though. I have a challenge race with the truggy on Sat and I'm trying to debate weather to run my 960 or my 720 to this azzwoopin on Sunday. My 960 is running great! My 720 is too! Get that steering servo straight so we can all run this Sunday!!

I forgot at what length you need to have the arm....also I've used a exacto knife to shave a little of the arm that touches the radio tray and a drop of CA.....

But if you want them, try www.the-border.com
I know that. I've figured out that is not worth to change the whole gearbox to the 960.. I mean $$$ So I'm trying to find these parts instead, as my problems with shifting are in these parts.. Anyway, have you had luck? Did you upgraded your Vector gearbox? Thanks for your help.. you're a guy that I can count on to help solve my dumbs doubts
see ya

Well, I figured out it was, because the LC gearbox is a lot better. Shifting to 2nd gear without hesitation (the Vector gearbox quite soon develops play on the 2 small bearing it runs on)
For me it was different, because I renewed the LC gearbox in my 950, so I installed the old one in the vector.....
Also now I can use the centax 2 on the Vector, and can forget about the centax 1.....

Yes I managed to install it on the Vector.
I installed the Vector (NT) shaft, only needed to shim some space between rear left ballbearing and belt pully. This pully and thus the belt are a bit further away from the chassis and engine's backplate, which maybe makes it possible to install an engine monoblock, didn't check that, but looks like it.
Didn't run it yet, am waiting for 1 part to come:

I used to race at Revelation and never tried Crystal Park, okay now I know who to go to when I need help if ever I go to Crystal Park, so it is better to approach the team drivers correct?
