Well, best aluminum TVPs in the hobby. Platinum RC carbons are lighter and stronger, but also cost 3x as much... And if you break either the TCS or the PRC, the rest of the truck isn't going to survive, so the difference in strength is academic.


borneoben, take a look at the Savox servos they have. Much stronger than the stock SF-5 steering servo, but for a terrific price. My SC-1256TG can turn my Trencher X's on carpet without straining.

ANother hop-up worth getting is the GPM hardened steel differential gears, GPM #SSAV1200. I have them in all three diffs on my Flux, and they are well nigh invincible.  I might break the outdrive pins, but I'll never break those gears.

Nope that is one of the main reasons to install the Integy hub carriers to eliminate that turnbuckle.

You dont need anything else.

You may want to consider changing the pins that come with the hub carriers for Hardened steel bolts with a long shank

TCS sell them there pretty cheap.


Thanks Ascender i am happy with my Hyperion servo for now its has allot more tourque and speed than the Stock servo, it too can turn my Desperado's on carpet
If / When it fails i will look into the Savox

Cheers

[quote="borneoben";p="857185"]NO WAY!!

They are not there on your original link!!

Thanks for that, they are way cheaper than the Great Hobbies ones as well.

Oh and what do you mean about the 12.9 grade pins?


Cheers

I got them from TCS in the end along with the hardened hinge bolts

Plus Great Hobbies were expensive to ship to my forwrading agent in New York.

Did the bolts you got at your local supplier have the really long shoulders like the TCS bolts?

This makes sure that the hub carriers hinge on smooth surfaces and not the threads of a bolt.

Yeah, just use a Dremel with a cutting disc to cut the bolts down just short of the nut.

Basically, assemble one side, cut the threads down, then use the same nut to assemble the other side and cut it. Then throw that nut out and use the remaing two nuts to permanently assemble the pins with a drop of blue threadlock. Make sure to leave just a hair of space under the nut. You don't want the bolts tight; the nut is just a retainer.

Cool. Early on, some people cut the threads and didn't change the nut. The heat from cutting would fry the nylock insert, just like having a loose slipper does.
