Default OPEN MOD

i'm looking to a top deck for my xray and i'd be game for OPEN MOD sat, I've given up on trying to setup a Tekin too complicated, Just pop in a mod motor and let er rip. Plus no need to purchase a high dollar esc for MOD. I love the idea

it could be, I have always run the belt tension for front and rear in the middle position so I think you are right, you may want to run them middle setting once you have replaced them

All the Tamiya 416's run there belts in the middle tension adjustment and nobody has belt problems .

Randy has a 416 clone car!! Randy take a close look at your ,pulleys,layshaft and bearings. If all looks good ,you might have to replace all parts with Tamiya parts!

I think before that ,Randy will have a TC6 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! lol

Anyone interested in racing Tamiya Mini this Saturday? If so, bring it! My car will be setup according to 2011 TCS Rules, but you can run your Mini anyway you want.

Too replace everything withtamiya in the drivetrain be not be much cheaper then buying some other car used or some new. But you won't see me driving a tc6 anytime soon. I didn't really care for the car at the end of the day all I can say to thatthough isthat I'm glad I didn't buy one.
