$275 to get it dialed in? Sorry, but that's not "fun" anymore, might as well spend the money on a real TC.

Default tcs

If you wanted to keep the cost down then the class should limit the hopups to the bare minimum. I would say bearings, shocks, rear toe in uprights, and titanium steering links. that would cost around 90 tops plus the cost of the kit. I would not worry about the ball diff. You can use a few tricks to tighten up the stock diff and its bulletproof.

Oh yea Jacko mine goes to 11.

TRF shocks
Titanium turnbuckles
LW carbon shafts
aluminum front hubs
LW kingpins
TA-03 ball diff
Tamiya blue sealed bearings
Flourine coated 20t pinions
Short touring car springs
Aluminum Hexes
CVD's old and new style
Hard outdrives
Aluminum Motor mount
Rear 2deg uprights
stainless sus. shafts
sway bars

come on Dan, it's $8 to race all day!

If you need to and it's not dbl pink/pink, I have several sets of mounted purple/greys on Yokomo wheel I can sell to you for cheap.
