Is that a JDM Tamiya pie plate?

Thanks for the pics. The motor plate looks almost identical, save for the slight indentation on the motor side. I guess most of the 4.5mm came from re-organizing the chassis.

I don't suppose you'd want to show us the page in the manual with the parts numbers on it, would you?

And on the subject of Tamiya screws again - does anyone know if they're Phillips or JIS? I've noticed my Arrowmax "Phillips" drivers fit them very well, when compared to any N. American hardware store drivers I usually use.

There are currently no part numbers for the 3 new items in the v.2 kit.

Cool. Just thought I'd check. Can't wait to disassemble my old 05 and build something more to my liking.

I too have noticed that one of my craftsman bits works extremely well compared to other screw drivers and bits. My observation is that the phillips w/ a blunt end work whereas the phillips w/ a pointed end to not. The bit I use w/ the blunt end fits very snug and I have yet to strip a screw with it.

I believe the bits w/ the "P2" designation have the blunt ends, whereas "P1" is pointy ...but I may be wrong on that. Here is what I am using for my M05's screws w/ success:

P1 and P2 are both Phillips. They're just different sizes. I've got drivers from P4 down to P0, and a few that are way smaller than 0, but they may carry a different designation. That's probably why the article I linked earlier has 30 pages.

The biggest improvement you can make is to start using a JIS pattern cross head screwdriver rather than an American/European Phillips head (the two are not the same). A Tamiya tool would be the ideal choice, I have TOP tools which are JIS, I suspect a few of the other expensive RC brand tools are JIS too. Phillips screwdrivers strip the heads of JIS screws.

The tapping thread of the kit screws is ideal for the ABS plastic most of the car is made out of, the screw hole tolerances are engineered for tapping screws as well. You'll find that machine screws strip out the ABS a lot more often because they don't cut very deep into the relatively soft material.
yeah, something like this will help with those kit screws.


I picked up one a long time ago on sale for little over $10. Perfect fit on the heads. The hex is meh though.

Arms/DroopAdjusters is still a two-piece arm, just a different design, imo.

Rear arm and droop screw mount is a single change as they go hand in hand. It is also molded on the same part tree as the front and rear arm.

Only the rear arm has a separate piece to support the droop screw. You don't need to even run this piece if OAL's are still used on the rear to set the rebound stroke on the shocks.

The advantage is basically that the complete arm is a single piece.
