Tamiya crooks

i race a serpent S411 tp you think tamaiya release alot of up dates try keeping up with the serpent

any way doesnt really matter its ones own choice really to buy one or up date parts in attempt to see if its going to be better, i race on rubbers on a large track so every little thing i can try is always a bonus

Ask Sean at TQ to help you, if he can't hook you up, he will point you to someone there that can for sure
Great group of racers at TQ.

Dude Tamiya is a business. Frist rule in Business 101 is keep your customers coming back. You don't make any money selling one fully blinged all up to date kit. You make your money selling a lower spec kit and keep people buying upgrade parts... you make a loss on selling the kits but then make all your money on selling parts.

Just like the iPhone. 3 comes out with sub par features, then 3S comes out a bit faster, then 4 comes out but has a dodgy antenna then software upgrades come out to allow all thef eatures you had on your phone 10 years ago functional again on an iphone 4... and all the while suckers liek me keep buying their products :P

I am putting in a good size order and I will order a couple of all the black edition parts in with it . Everything will be listed in the online store soon, just trying to get all of the bodies done and shipped.

The split deck and heavy pivot are hop ups for the damper plate configuration and are great for those that aren't gonna change to the side damper config.
Kinda apples and oranges as it seems that quite possibly the "plate" config may be the ticket on carpet and the "tube" might own the asphalt.
Jury is still out?

As has been said before... you need the roll-damper split top deck to use the roll-damper, as it has an additional mounting point specifically for the roll-damper not present on the standard split top deck.

And has also been said, Tamiya are business.. be thankfully Xray doesn't make an F1 that you need to (re)optimise every year...

Just calm it down a little eh!

If you don't like the cost of the new upgrade parts, don't buy them!
I'm still tinkering around with the F104 Pro setup and have made great progress just by mucking around with how and where the chassis/suspension flexes with the std parts.
O rings and removing screws are my favourite tricks

The RC hobby is all about spending lots of money if you can't afford it maybe you should take up Knitting or Cross word puzzles.
