Default transponder mounts

thanks for your info!
so are both sets of holes used for transponders? there's 2 holes just behind the front left wheel and 2 more near the pinion. do they expect you to use whichever one you prefer or is there something else that you could screw on apart fom the transponder mount?
cheers!

You choose according to your electronics. They're located to balance the chassis.

John, this front anti roll bar system is not supposed to be this, is it ? To me it looks more like you used the belt tensionners for the anti roll bar. Nice idea though.

hey John D,

Are those Blue parts that you have on your car the following:?

Item 49308 TRF Damper Aluminum Top End (Blue)
Item 49309 TRF Damper Cylinder Cap (Blue)
Item 49310 TRF Damper Cylinder Nut (Blue)
Item 49311 TRF Damper Aluminum Retainer (Blue)

and the blue aluminum turnbuckles?

just want to be clear what part is what, let me ask you:

are the "top-end" the thing that snap onto the ball ends on the damper stay?

What are cylinder nut? is it the thing that goes on the cylinder threads? do they come as 8 pieces in a pack? (I saw you have two on each cylinder)

are the retainer the one that goes under the spring?

TRF Powered - maybe I can help. The top end is the part which you thinking of, although with the blue ones they don't snap on, the are held in place by a screw. He doesn't seem to be running the blue cylinder caps. As for the cylinder nuts, they are the part which goes on the threaded body of the shock. Although it looks like there are two on each shock, there is only one (they are one piece, but look like 2), and they come in packs of 4pcs. I don't know who makes the turnbuckles, I know its not Tamiya though.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the info John. I saw you are using blue aluminum screws holding the upper linkage and the sway-bar. I would sugguest you to change it to titanium ones. Since those places are high-stress areas, it would be easy to bend one of those things when you hit something.

Just some idea that you might want to consider.

Default Caster

Can someone please tell me if you can buy different caster blocks for a 414MII? If you can what are the part codes? If you canít do you alter it by adding spacers under the hinge pin mounts?

if those turnbuckles are tamiya aluminium ones, does this mean that the blue turnbuckles on the 415 are aluminium...I do hope not!!

Thanks for the info.

I have actually been using the titanium parts all over the car since it is based on the WCR kit which I baught.

I must say though that I have never done any damage to the car, even now that I use the alluminum parts, and I am racing competitevely and I have won a lot of races with this kit.

You may also notice that I have trimed the suspension arms to make them lighter. Still no danger there either. I just won another race this past Sunday. I actually laped everyone including 2nd place man in all A mains. And it wasn't a matter of good batteries or better motor because we all race the same, TAMIYA Sanyos 3300 and TAMIYA 11 X 2 modified motor. Same brushes, same springs. I just think that I have succeed in making it soooo smooth and it handles so nice that it is a dream to drive.
The way it changes directions and accelerates it is breathtaking. It reminds me of a Pro 10 I used to have.

I really like this chassis and I am afraid that TRF 415 is just nothing else than an odd looking car with the motor way out and exposed. I like things to be cimetrical and in the center line of the car.
