I want one for the rear of my car and some small ones that will blend nicely with the tamiya decal sets

Maybe one that says "Got Shaft?"
Anyone have one of those printers that do decals?
How's racing been?

I made some a while ago that say "Got shaft?" out of vinyl. shoot me a pm if you want me to drop some in a envelope for ya

No problem, thanks for the great service. If they say no next year, rent a icecream truck and vend parts to tcs racers out on the street. What happens on the street shouldn't concern them

Wow, that is so awesome! Thanks for staying open late. I will need last minute supplies, I won't be able to sleep, and I will be really lost Kinda wished I had waited on my last order since I 2 day'd it here, but I like getting packages in the mail so its all good hehehe. I do have a new perspective on the saying, "going for broke" now

I got some hop up question guys

The shop where I buy my stuff got this in the tb-03 section:

Tamiya Alu. Wheel Hub Clamp (5mm thick/ Black) 84011

and you got these in the evo section:

Tamiya Clamp Type Alum Wheel Hub blue 5mm 53823

so wich one I should take? I want to try to keep the same thickness as the stock (4.7mm) hub.

Also a turn buckle question: I want to change all my turnbuckle because they are all wear out ( my fault I use plier in a rush) and I find the blue titanium for the 32mm camber link , I supose I can also use the 23mm for the steering.
But what to use for the pushrod? I dont think the 23 mm will do. I was about to use the 28mm titanium silver one but I saw the picture of the tb03 previous page and the car got blue pushrod so I ask .

Also should I put titanium at every link or some can be allu without trouble?

Tamiya now sell a blue motor mount is there any weight avantage in this? I think we already have an allu one stock nah? maybe its just for the look...

And finaly where you find these blue screw ? all the replacement screw I see are silver.

thanks

jimmy would prefer the black clamps.. id prefer the blue. either way, both are valuable hopups

push rods.. i use the Ti on my test car (lots of adjustments). once i get my set up.. i use the alum. for weight savings on the race car. (i have two TB-03s). same for the camberlinks

the blue alum. motor mount SHOULD have an advantage both in heat dissipation and weight savings. the original i believe is some sort of cast iron. ill know more when i get mine and weigh it.

Default TB-03 Build Photos and Notes

I recorded my TB-03 build for a friend and he put it up on his website here:

http://sweetjumps.com/tamiya-tb-03-build-series/

There are a *lot* of pictures so if potential buyers are curious about what the kit is like, this should give some idea.
