I am almost closer to maxing out my steering. The 42mm Swing Shafts for the TB-03D stopped the vibrating and gave me slightly more steering.

I need a longer servo horn. Mine is just to low to give me the little that I need. I am at odds at which servo horn I should get. I am not familiar with them. I need it a little taller. then I can make stuff happen. What would you guys recommend?

ALSO: Do you guys Lube/Grease the Front One Way(54057)? If so what grease/Lube do you use?

No, do not grease the one way. Nor do not spray it out.

TB-03R?

I googled it and found some pics. What's different from the normal TB-03?

Does anyone have a vibrating problem with their cars? My car vibrates. could be the PVC pipe, I ordered some T-Drifts to see if it still vibrates. I added universal swing shafts to the front and rear and removed the urethane bushings.

Maybe the PVC are cut unevenly.

One is real and one is fictional as of now. There has been nothing announced as far as a TB03-R at this point in time.

Hey your car looks very nice Thanks for sharing. I have been wanting to try some foams on mine but haven't had the chance yet. Do you race on carpet?

Is the TB03R going to have any changes or does it just come with all the hopups?

Here is a modification I wanted to share with you all. With some slight work you can install a Parma aftermarket bumper on the TB03 for better crash protection. The bumper is actually for a Top Photon, Parma #PAR8045. This bumper is very hard and also larger than the factory one. It sits closer to whatever body you plan on using so it helps prevent the front fenders from cracking in a bad head on by giving more support and not allowing the front of the body to buckle. Here is a picture of it installed on my car. Enjoy!

Timmie, why not just use the 416WCE/TB-03 hopup bumper? its a direct bolt on, modification needed.

I have been using those, but there not as firm as the Parma bumper. The Parma one could bruise someone Go find one and give it a squeeze, you will see what I mean

they already announced the new kits for the Nov. toyshow in Japan. the next one is in May. thats probably when it'll be released. but thats just speculation and past history of Tamiya's announcements.

Argh! Jimmy, you rabble-rouser! What is this, "good cop, bad cop"? Which one of you is the bad cop?

If there's going to be a $250-ish TB03-R similar in spec to the IFS-R you can sign me up.

And to think I almost drunk-ordered a TB03 from speedtech the other night! I already bought a 416WE mere days before the 416X was announced -- not ready to go down that road again!
