Hi, This is my first post. Like many others on here, I’ve revisited my childhood in acquiring a Hornet and Hotshot during the lockdown. I have an Egress on the way and was just wondering if any members would have any of these hop ups they’d be willing to sell: 53031 - Avante posi joints front 53032 - Avante posi joints rear 53053 - mini Hi Cap damper springs 53054 - short Hi Cap damper springs 50346 - Avante body set 53045 - Avante undercowl Would any of the TRF dampers fit the Egress and would they be an improvement? I also have some Gmade aeration shocks and was wondering if they would be worth putting on instead of the Hi Caps. All suggestions are welcome many thanks Justin
So as the title describes, I've just picked up an Avante 2011 re release. Looking for hop ups & mods. I'm currently in Japan at the moment, and I have posted it back home. I should be there in a week or so. For the time being, I have access to cheap rc bits for a good price. So far I have picked up some touring wheels for road driving and a new set of gravel hound wheels and tyres. I love those! Anyway, I plan to put in a 3 turn vector x-12 I also plan to machine the drive shafts with 8 uni joints instead of 4 unis + 4 dog in cup joints. I have also worked out an easy and reversible way to lock the diffs. (by reversing one of the moon gears in the planetary diff) however I am a little concerned if this will be able to take the torque of the lrp 3 turn. Also another issue I can foresee is the 4wd torque splitter. What is the best way to lock this? I was thinking maybe drilling some holes from the back and inserting some pins through the assembly, however that assembly is already pretty heavy... is there a single locked piece available? Another issue I can see is to do with the top deck of the chassis where the left swing arm connects. This looks pretty weak and I'd hate for it to break. I was thinking about maybe putting some reinforcement there... maybe a triangular brace that extends down to the bottom deck and extends to the other side? What do people normally do with this? Os there anything important that I need to consider? Thanks for reading.
