    Help with Top Force Rear Diff

    T-F rear diff should be the same as the 53070 Manta Ray set. Might have some spares around. Are you in the UK ?

    TC website in EDGE browser

    Just checked it again and all is fine ! Very strange...
  3. Anyone else having issues with the way the TC website is displaying in the MS Edge browser ? Started plating up a couple of days ago but displays perfectly OK in IE11 or Chrome. May be something to do with the latest Windows 10 updates. A couple of other forums I use have the same issues with displaying incorrectly.

    Agree, not cheap but incredibly satisfying...go on, you know you want one...

    Do I want a truck???

    3-axle trucks have longer chassis rails, rear axle is the same as a 2-axle but the middle axle is different as the drive goes through it to the rear axle. I'm sure someone else asked a while back about converting a 2-axle truck into a 3-axle truck and the cost of the parts needed for the conversion almost came out to the cost of another truck ! Just buy a 3-axle truck if that is what you want...you will end up buying more anyway.

    Getting into the 1/14 trucks is a bug...1 is never enough.

    Super astute body to rear shock

    If you go to the Tamiya USA website the re-re manual is available to download and the pics for trimming the shell look the same as in the vintage manual.

    Super astute body to rear shock

    Are you sure you have trimmed the shell correctly ? Just had a look in my vintage SA build manual and it would appear there is some more trimming to be done.

    Anyone ever been suspended from YouTube?

    Don't know a great deal about having a YT channel but it might be a good idea to have a separate ID for posting comments so they are not traceable back to your own channel ? A lot of YT clips are mirrored on channels with similar interests - can you get someone else to host your videos ?

    Probably the flat earthers you have upset - they have 'friends' in high places.
