I actually mean the c-shaped alum silver things that clamp around the rear trans housing - this is what the bottom of the rear shocks mount to. They wiggle left/right a tad. I think you might see the parts I mean in the 4th pic.

How are they attached to the axle housing? Hard to see from the pics.. they are not screwed on or something?? Interesting that it would be moving.. [&:]

They are a C-shape. At the open end of the C, you drive a screw through it to close the C (it also passes through part of the diff housing). But - that only fixes one end of the C. The other end (closed end) can wiggle left/right a tad, since it's not fixed. It's real near a bump on the underside of the housing which limits how much it moves - but it's not a perfect fit, as I'm experiencing lately with the GPM parts. [&:]

I guess you get what you pay for.

Say, you're using the GPM Racing steering upgrade, right? And you had no slop in the fitment between the steering shaft and receiving end under the chassis?

Some better pics of my T-Egg, now with decals on. Question - do most people run without the rear bumper thing? If you use it, does the double sided tape hold? I haven't put mine on yet, so it looks a little funny since I trimmed the main body to accommodate the rear bumper, but don't have it on.

Note: blue steering knuckles are about to be replaced with orange alum ones. Drat, shoulda saved pics until that was done. Oh well.

Looks good, Eman! For the rear bumper, I used a couple of rivets, I think..

LB I count 24 T-Eggs in that earlier pic. Am I right?

Also how, and why, did you have 24~ T-Eggs?

No reason, really... Just an experiment, see if I can control the T-Egg market...

A couple of pics showing the stroke extension kit working.

It is kind of a silly mod, I think.. but I figured that I'd give it a try..

Is it functional. I wouldn't mind a little more stroke. But then I have the gpm rear end so it may not be compatible with mine.

Yeah, it does its job of extending the stroke (see pic).. Obviously there's some drawbacks.. (the suspension has no control during down travel.. for example..)

Saw this on eBay... pretty cool! Glad that the CC-01 chassis continues to enjoy the aftermarket support!
