  1. Hi, your front shock tower is mounted too high. Your bolts are going through the A parts into the lower holes of the shock tower (arrowed), they should be going through the set above.
  2. Better to have a front shock tower fail on the egress than transfer the force to the front A parts and write these off. Spares still a plenty but was a real problem before the avante and egress rere's. Anything that could strengthen the shock tower whilst distributing the load away from the A part mountings would be a great improvement 👍 Great work on all your parts. Out of interest would replacement D1 and D4 kingcab parts be feasible?
  3. Sorry, I mean the thrust washers with the hexagonal centre, almost all the diffs I've managed to find have the race area badly pitted, and are a pain to find
  4. Bigger problem I found is trying to find unpitted SC4 parts for rebuilds?
  5. I've got them in a diff I rebuilt for a monster racer, if I recall everything else is the same, so should be a straight swap out with madcap.
  6. Metal SC1 thrust bearings available here: https://www.rcbearings.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=54
  7. If its just for the shelf/visuals, failing any alternative you could perhaps modify the egress ones to fit (N parts tree still readily available)??
  8. Anyone know the centre to centre hole distance for the B8 parts? If so happy to check against other kits eg egress etc
  9. Oh, and NOS front stabiliser wire is available from fleabay as I've had this in my watch items a while now, if you cant find a cheaper one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/165459183618?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=22Slubt5Qyq&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=jwhm6zvwThS&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY
  10. The thrust bearings are available from RCbearings, I can't recall the item code but Colin was very helpful identifying the right ones.
  11. If anyone has the same issue, these are available in 25mm from eBay, and without the knurling so shouldn't mark battery cases.
  12. Good call, checked 25mm standoff and found these. Will see if there are anymore faithful reproductions otherwise these will do the trick.
  13. Thanks for taking a look, much appreciated. Will have to search for an alternative solution.
  14. Hi all, I posted already in the wanted section for 3 chassis stays common to the avante and egress, however does anyone know if there is an alternative as building a runner from parts. Wondered if the top force/evo ones would work as they look more readily available, but do not have measurements for either. Does anyone with an avante/egress and a top force/evo know whether deck spacing is the same between the chassis types? Thanks in advance
  15. Hello all, Does anyone have any of the deck posts/chassis stays for sale or know of a suitable alternative? I'm looking for 3 ideally. Are they common to anything other than avante and egress? Thanks
