selection process - the only difference in the TA-04R NSX 2002 and the TA-04R chassis without the NSX body is just that, no body. Everything else is the same, correct?

Happy New Year guys! Mind if I join on the topic?

I'm currently using a TA04 Pro Blue collection -- extremely hopped up -- that ud look twice to make sure you saw an 04 and not a 414 I did have a TA04R before this but I gave it to my cuzin who just started the hobby. Both are almost the same, lil differences here and there but the same. Th e only reason I picked the Pro Blue was because I didn't like the wide profile of the Tub the R has. It keeps rubbing the side if you set low at 5mm ride height. So there.

I run it with the Tamiya 11Turn -- one hot motor alright!

I didn't use the droops screws, and my ride is better now than when I used them in my R. But mind you I use white and Blue springs.

A question you guys -- have you tried the 04 with the SS rear arms? Coz that's what I'm planning to do but wondered if anybody has tried it yet. I'm not sure how much shorter the wheelbase gets, but it could eliminate a lil understeer with no drawback eh? what do you guys think?

Also, is there any weight diff on the HARD ARMS and the stock ones?

May '03 be a good season for the 04!

Mike F,

We just got one of the new Raybrig NSX TA04R in stock and looking on the box I believe this TA04R comes with the new Tamiya shocks (the FL coated) 53471. These are suppose to be even smoother and a tighter seal against dirt. It's the same one they included in the new TBEVOIII kit.

You bet they are. The shocks in the 2002 Raybrig NSX Kit are the best you'll find. They are soo smooth and the finish is second to none!!

You'll get that a more stratuskyo. The problem is that these guys/gals are so passionate about the Tamya kits that they'll add some more to this thread then just set ups.

Steve I saw that you had some in stock, thanks.

Steevo - so the shocks that come in the 04R chassis kit are not the same but are threaded, correct.

I believe all the current R kits come with the silverish gold colored threaded shock bodies. These are the smoothest shocks I have used from any manufacturer. I've been using the non threaded ones on my F1 cars for years.

stratuskyo

Here's the setup I'm running stock on carpet. It's pretty good, but I think I can still get more out of it.

Front:
5mm ride height (track requirement)
one-way
2mm of droop
yellow springs
40 weight shock oil with kit 2 hole pistons
Shocks stood up all the way (inside hole on arm and outside hole on shock tower - kit shock tower)
camber link in kit specified location
1.5 degrees of camber
1 degree of tow out on each side
blue swaybar
I'm not running the torsion rods

Rear:
5mm ride height (track requirement)
diff fairly tight
4 mm of droop
red springs
40 weight shock oil with kit 2 hole pistons
Shocks in outermost position on lower arm and middle of shocktower.
camber link in kit specified location
1 degree of camber
kit included upright (toe setting)
yellow swaybar

Everything on the car is Tamiya except the tires, which are TakeOff CS27 with their inluded insert. I have the Tamiya Ferrari 360-GT body with the wing in the "low downforce" position. I'm running the kit shock towers as well. I hope this helps. I think this setup should work pretty well on fairly grippy asphalt as well.

Both are good kits. I had both of them but decided to stick with the Pro Blue. The diff could be that the R is lighter due to the Blue's FRP chassis - but the Blue has Aluminum Racing Steering and Front Aluminum Universals. I had to buy Turnbuckles for the Blue though, the R has them stock! The R has bodies (Altezze/NSX) while the Pro Blue is KIT ONLY.

Any choice would be great. get hte Carbon shock Towers, One-Ways and youre all set.

If memory serves the 04R kit uses the same front hub carrier as the M2 (racing steering set with torque rods)

I did hear recently that they might start making these parts out of the reinforced material that we now see used in the rear uprites etc.

They just cut off the part which holds the torque rods to save weight so it looks like what is in the picture.
