The only thing I can think of is a servo saver. The kit servo saver is junk. I assume you are good on springs, tires, and shock oil options?

Thanks!
Yes, they will perform the same. What tires are you planning to use? If you don't know what tires you will be using, just get some Much More aqua inserts. They work really well and are inexpensive to purchase. Your list looks good, but I would add a hex head screw kit to it as well. Trust me, the phillps head screws will drive you nuts! A friend that I recently converted to Tamiya...HEHHEHE.....bought a TA05 and got a nice stainless screw kit from Tony's screw kit or something. Worth checking out.

I just can't imagine where the foams should hit the knuckle. Which foams are you looking for / by using which foams will this appear?

I use LRP VTEC foams on several cars and i don't have a problem with that. Normally the knuckle is turning in just parallel to the foam tire while steering so the space between will rest just the same.

The only problem i had on my trf 414M was that the inner rim touched the upper end of the tie rod attached to the knuckle. I solved this with some Dremel work on the inside of the rim. Just taking off 1mm on the inside removing the sharp 90 edge.

Dont take the Tamiya (#53724) 46mm LIGHTWEIGHT For TB Evo.IV use the 44mm . I buy the 46mm because the manual said that and its very tight with an allu diff or a spool ( never try the plastic diff with it). I use them with 0 camber for drift but if you go more than 2 degree of camber they dont fit anymore . I have to replace them with the stock for now and I will order the 44mm

I think the offset of the stuff he sells or maybe just what you mentioned. I will know soon enough.

Thanks Tech5!

My goal was to be on pace with the average of the 13.5 TC's with my 17.5 RCGT car. I was close I think I was .6-.7 seconds average a lap slower than they were. not bad for a car with "radial" tires on it.

Hey... that would be me

It's not a SS screw kit, but Tony's Screws are good stuff.
This is the kit I got for TA05v2... http://www.tonysscrews.com/product.s...&categoryId=60
It's a 136 piece kit for the TA05.
There is also a 180 piece kit for the TA05MS... http://www.tonysscrews.com/product.s...&categoryId=60
I also have various RC Screwz SS screw kits from other models; so far I have been able to avoid using the phillips heads
