Since the only flaw with this car is the steering slop I thought I would try to tackle it while waiting for my hop-ups to come from stellamodels. The steering arms are very solid and only need tamiya 450 bearings to make them nice and tight. They are the same size used in diffs and f-1 front wheels. The slop comes from the crossbar and the barrel spacers used in it. I took 2 bearings from the belt tensioner of a ta03f Dj. (they fit very snug on a M3 screw). I drilled out the cross bar with a bit that matched the OD of the bearings , 7/16, pressed the bearings in and walla
It is now perfect with ZERO slop.
I got the Idea by looking at the carbon cross bar tamiya sells for the tb03 and said to myself....heck, I can modify the plastic one the same way
See the pics for my handy-work
Note: I did not drill all the way through crossbar. I left a 1mm lip to retain the bearing. The Tamiya carbon one uses flanged bearings.
A cheap but perfect fix if you got the bearings laying around
