Issac, not sure if it's any help, but the setup I sent you for your page is for mod on carpet... either 8x1 or 9x1 for motors.

TRF- yup, it's same razzo from rct, ttt, and various other places.

Issac, can you post the link to your site? I seemed to have lost it somewhere. Opps, never mind I found it.

Anybody care to share a stock setup for rubber tires on carpet?

TRF -- I bought the car used and the seller included aftermarket shocks, not the original Tamiya ones. I think the car came with the threaded aluminum shocks. The shocks I have are Integy threaded aluminum.

post your racing result after sunday Issac.

It should be fun.

Nice paint job you have there.

I have never use any other body for racing besides tamiya.

I just have the habbit of being Tamiya only. Unless I'm just practicing.

Try the F360 body from Tamiya. It is a very nice racing body. I'm currently using NSX raybrig 2000 for racing. It's very nice too.

I finally see some body run TRF414M at SoCal raceway today. That car is fast!

I assembled my TRF414M already, but haven't put any electronics in it yet. I'm not planning on running it soon. i need to get my driving skill up fast before I ever drive that car.

TRF-Powered, Razzo and who ever else wants to know. This past weekend at our annual Charity Race sponsored by Hobby Works (www.hobbyworks.com) I placed 4th in Pro-Stock "A" main and 1st Tamiya stock "A" main.

Pro-Stock 414M:
1.5 degree negative camber all around
80wt front, 2 hole pistons, white springs
60wt rear, 3 hole pistons, yellow springs
yellow sway bars front and back
switched between Sorex 32R's and Yokomo 138G's (about the same) The Sorex like the sun and the Yokomo's were the same all around; sun or clouds.
All shock mounts, camber links and what ever else were in their stock locations.
Protoform DTM 2000 Mercedes CLK body. The one below.

The car had a slight push and sometimes the rear would *try* to come around. The surface had medium traction. Everyone had the same problems not matter the car. The tire to have was the Sorex 28R's. If you had these tires you were pretty much stuck. Needless to say I didn't have any. Dang things were sold out when I wanted them. There was mixture of sun and clouds and believe me you had to gauge when the sun was going to show or not. No sun made the track was totally different as the track temp dropped by at least 10 to 15 degrees F. It's about to hit fall here in Maryland.

Tamiya Stock 1st Place:
same set up as above except for these items:
blue springs up front, blue sway bar in the rear, and Yokomo 206F with firm inserts. Surprisingly this car was stuck. No push, no oversteer just traction. These were year and a half old tires too.

Questions email: iwilson@georgemeany.org

Oh yea Pro-stock mains went as far as an "E" main and I think stock went to just a "B" main.

I think someone posted in a thread somewhere but I can't find it.... so here goes the same question: can the TRF414M front and rear gear boxes be used on a TA04?

Thanks,
Alvin
