I don't think VBC approved the TQ listing of the mounts so it wasn't a factory thing.
Ok, I stand corrected on one item. The individual split mounts do fit the screw holes. The outers do not because...

David: The 406 has a pretty low discharge rate (80w/channel or 140 total). That is why I use a 4010 (130w/channel or 200 total). That lets me balance discharge at 15A on a 2 cell without using a...

I hope that you know by now since it was also covered. The D-10 mounts don't fit the car and that is why your arms aren't flat or are possibly binding. The bolt pattern is different. My solution was...

Myron: I didn't sign up for the invite for two reasons. The main one being that with my back issues I couldn't run a 10 minute race. I can barely do 6. The other I am a privateer. But I am old and...

I don't think that that is true. From what I understand a motor wind will be one brand for the year. That is what is being determined now by the Can-Am crew. Now the FDR might change track to track...

I got them from TQ. Not sure about the brand. That is also where I got the 6mm ones and a shim set to get .5 mm increments. Most hexes will work as long as they are for metric axles (most are).

And that is still correct. I haven't had a wheel come off with 7mm hexes on the front using serrated locking nuts. With 6mm hexes the VTA rims can still contact the steering knuckle. It will clear...

We are required to run odorless compound on our tires. I use SXT standard to start. Typically the tires have grip right away with the fronts being a little grabby. Make a couple of runs and the even...

I have the CRC car and there is very little difference to make it a rubber tire car. They used the rear pod from their F1 car and made a chassis to accept that. The front end is different in servo...
