RC Martin, Have you had any issues with the dog bones falling out or jamming since the ball diffs were fitted?

I have been having issues with a modified bigwig, I fitted Top Force uni's and it seems to be ok now

 

Love your work,,,,,,,

Hi, yes, the dog bones are too small, i was pretty annoyed as they're an expensive hop up. I've got some old thundeshot universals on the front now which are fine and on the back i have added a small spring inside the diff outdrive and a 2mm foam pad inside the hub drive and the shafts seem to fit ok at that.

Ah, ok I am pretty sure the Thundershot uni's and the Top Force uni's are the same part,

 

Thanks for that

Looks great. What wheels are those?

They're Tamiya, same as fitted to Dark Impact but in white

Awesome project - hats off to you . How about black or carbon front damper bell cranks to blend in more ? .

Are there any files you can share to print the chassis locally?

Awesome project. This Hotshot with 4 dampers remind me one I saw on a video with 5 dampers:  It was made by a Japanase guy, probably a designer from Tamiya, it kept the orginal external design from the front, but had 2 dampers hidden in the chassis with pivots. But yours is already a great one :-D
