Okay - torx sucks. I actually broke the tip of a torx driver trying to take the bulkheads off of this chassis. Bring on the Ti screws.

David - Back at you. I'll send it to the hotel. You'll have it.

Rob - You talking about the RDX? I tried the RCScrewz kit and the heads are too big. For now the Torx looks like the best option. If you like Blue or Purple you can go to www.fasteners-express.com and get some aluminum ones.

The o-ring that holds the pin in the spur gear adaptor was wedged between the bulkhead/bearing and the spur gear adaptor.

It's alot better, but there's still some binding present. Currently, the spur will only spin 2 or 3 times before stopping. Not as free as Gabe's, that's for sure.

What mounts are you using to mount your TRF shocks to the tower, and what ball cups are you using on the shock rod to mount to the arms? I'm not sure I have the stuff necessary to get the TRF's working correctly for me right now.

yeah, i have the tamiya ball nuts on top, then the schumacher stuff on bottom... cut the schumacher ballcup in the middle of the molded circle on the backside of it... you'll see it, then its dialed..... no spacers or anything on the springs.. you will need to space out the nut 5-6 mm on top tho... just get the shocks straight...

I used Tamiya blue hardware top and bottom. Like Brian said just space the top out so the angle is right. I left to the stock eyelets on the bottom.

Rob, have you taken the bearings out yet and worked them? I wish I had room to pack my ultrasonic cleaner for the trip.
