According to the translation of the Tech pages that is a drift conversion - can't see why it wouldn't work for racing if you like that sort of thing.

Also from the Tech page is this;

Tamiya TA06 18T spur gear with built-in pulley holder (black)

Integrated spur gear pulley holder made ​​Touring Car Tamiya TA06.
spur, we reduce the blurring of the pulley, the drive significantly reduces the loss are also support high-power motor, excellent durability!

TA6060B Release Date: October Release Product No. 8: TA6060B
Price: 2,800 yen

Think that could be useful/more efficent than the standard item.

Also they mention big bore shocks...guess we'll see about those soon!!

I like the rear shock mount, but the carbon chassis itself has waaaay too much carbon, you can reduce a bunch of weight if they start carving into it! Its only for pretty, not function.

rear shock tower is the most ugly part i have seen on a rc car! wouldnt use that in racing, one hit and its broken..

the chassi looks to have lot of flex in it judging from how its been milled out (hard to tell from a picture)

looking forward to see more cf kits for the car availible on the market!

Im not looking at looks, Im looking into adjustability and weight savings.

its also 3mm carbon fiber. Its going to take quite a bit to break it. I would trust this over the plastic factory piece!

i have broken cf towers before when being hit, and the tech one will most likely crack in a hard crash due to its design, i think

a "normal design" cf tower would be maybe 2g heavier, i would take those any day if it makes the car more durable

its easy to get blind with weight saving things, but its important to look how it affects the car both in handling and in strength, a light with less strength car is worthless when sitting broken on the side of the track!

would like to see what Alien RC`s car weights with his cf chassi compared to a std ta06..wish i had a scale here!

Can someone design the rear shock tower with the body post on the outside? And if possible put a couple of extra holes in it to install body post pointing towards the rear of the car? Shock towers should be at least 2.5mm thick, preferably 3mm thick.

Here is some news of the testings I have made with my Carbon kit.

Track Conditions :
The track is very bumpy and abrasive. It's the track of the coming french Cup at the end of the month.

Car :

3mm thick lower plates give a lot of stiffness. Too much infact compared to the top Car like Yokomo and Xray.
Because I have fix the esc behind the steering servo (didn't want to buy extra long motor and sensor cables), I had to add 60 gr on the right side of the car...
So the car, was really too heavy...

On the track, the car was faster than the original one but not enough to follow the top cars...

Work is already done : 2mm thick lower plate and Steering servo on the right hand side of the car.

putting the ESC near the motor requires you to put more lead to balance the car. This amount is way more than the extra weight from the longer motor wires.

Because the motor is so far back, this car needs a little more weight up front to get better high speed steering. That's why the ESC is mounted where it is. Probably why the car felt better with the standard front damper layout than the IFS.

I normally ran all four of the same springs on my 416, but for this car, it feels better with a one step softer on the front.

will post a vid later today from Sunday's race. I was able to hold my own against the other high end chassis.

this car should, the basic science behind it is wayy better than those 415 type of cars. The motor and batteries in the middle is already a big plus.
