Default Rear Uprights

Hey guys, I asked this question in the M06 forum and looks like no one has an answer.. hoping you guys have one...

1. The stock plastic up rights are 2.0 correct?

2. Does Tamiya offer plastic 1.0 and 1.5? Not interested in the aluminium ones.

One has more silver coloured option parts.. The other has some blue stuff. Not too much different otherwise. The limited comes with alloy dampers, while the regular S doesn't...yup.

I think all of the Tamiya plastic uprights are either 0 degree or 2 degree.

Tim

I think all the internals for the TRF shocks are the same. Only the shock shaft lengths are different (mini vs. touring). The oring and guide set I)arkness listed, #53574 should work. The shock bladder at the top is #53576. The pistons are #53572, 2 hole, #53573, 3 hole. The TRF shock shaft for touring car is #53575.

I would try higher rear ride height than the front and see if that helps with you push.
On my shocks, (Al ones) the shockends can wiggle on the balls to avoid binding. Using step screws to mount the shocks, still should be loose enough to avoid binding. If there is a lot of up down slop then are the plastic end holes worn and now too big?
Thanks for the help
I got out this weekend to race after playing with the mini on the bench for a couple of weeks.
I did all this plus looked at what you guys told Ivan and started doing tire testing........

AJ I have no clue how you can get your M03 to turn with slicks all around.....

Slapped some M-grips on the front and holy steering, tossed a set of S-grips on the front and now I have to limit steering throws.....

It turns again.....

Larry

Thanks for the help on the 2.4 receiver location.

Again, I'm about 1100+ pages late to the party.

We are trying to start a box-stock, no mods (other than bearings and tires) Mini class. We race on medium-grip Ozite. What Tamiya rubber tires work best on this surface? Inserts?

Finally, regarding the acres of slop in the steering rack- no mods allowed, but can I shim some of the slop out?
