Questions?? Alum Racing Steering Set (54191) - Bearing

Hi,

Need your help... I'm trying to find the size of the small bearing that goes into the Alum Racing Steering Set (54191) from Tamiya. I'm searching everywhere and cannot find the information.

Thank you,
Martin

That'd be 5x8mm. (and if anyone asks, 4mm wide.)

Hi,

Found it it's a 3x6x2.5mm... the 5x8x2.5mm is Ok but in the tamiya part #54191 there is two bearings and it's the smaller one I'm looking for.

Thank you,
Martin

While we're here - Any thoughts why there seem to be different lengths of front upright for the M05? There are the standard ones that originally came out around the same time as the 03R and have carried through, then there are the stubbier looking ones, like those made by 3Racing. Just wondering.
Monkey,

Not sure for Tamiya's reasoning for not allowing gluing the sidewalls but makes it so much harder to tune out traction rolling. It could be just to even the field. I have heard stories from past worlds that racers saucing the insides of their tires before building them because of the no saucing rule. Tamiya put a stop to that as you have to build your tires at tech.

As for the rally uprights, I haven't tried them.

The only way I read Japanese is via Google translate. Here's what it gave me:

http://www.tamiya.com/trf/content/view/1614/229/

About M-05 front pillow ball suspension shaft (08.30)
And SP.1436 M-06 PRO 3x34mm ball Suspension Shaft on sale included "M-05 Chassis Kit Gold Edition (RC only)" and "pillow ball front suspension shaft (3 35 mm ball Suspension Shaft <Short>)" is The length, becoming a different shape, such as identification line.
Usage that is according to the illustration will be observed in the Tamiya Grand Prix, but please note such as the use of the front of SP.1436 Because you are not permitted.
So, you can or can not use these?

More Tamiya sales pushing the rules, you have to buy the Gold Chassis to get the new shorter suspension pin with the damper attachment as it is only available in that kit, similar thinking to the hub weights and lower damper mounts on the M06R, also only available with the kit not as a spare part.

I wonder if a call to Tamiya will get you the parts you need, by just saying you've got the kit and broke the part, and want a few spares.

Has moving the damper to the new position proven beneficial enough to bother making the change to an existing car? If not, then you don't have to worry about it.

OMG... So, wait... Now racers can't glue the sidewalls of their tires?!? In Mini class? What about F1 - no gluing?? Holy crap...!!??

haahahahahahahhaahaaahahaha

EDIT w/o delete: after reading and catching up on 30 pages. I'm glad to see that brushless is finally in the 'planning' for mini class. I'm not sure why mini pro class rules will/did not work. We can get used 'crappy' brushless ESC CHEAP - but whatever... Gluing tires is not a crime IMHO - but I'm out, so I got no stake; and I'm sure noone cares

where's the popcorn? Oh, right here...
