These are what you will need,

1. Spec-R gear diff for Tamiya 416x

3. HB Cyclone TC front and rear drive belts
4. Tamiya 416x rear drive shafts
*For the rear drive shafts, you can also use our HB universal drive shaft (44mm) with plastic blades w/some dremel work on the drive cups on the gear diff.

I would suggest to start with #1000 diff lube.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

Thank you.
Hi just want to ask if you try to use the spool of 416 and cups of the ta05. can you use 44mm driveshaft in front? Do you need to change or modify anything on the spool of HB to fit the tamiya pulley? thanks

You don't have to modify the hb spool to fit the tamiya pulley on, but you have to re-drill the tamiya pulley.

I beleive that spec R should have the HB gear diff out in November. So I'd say it's worth waiting rather than having the hassle of modding tamiya parts to fit.

Default 46MM drive shafts alternatives

Just saw these on the 3racing website for the Sakura Zero...

Has anyone tried the 46mm Swing Shaft For 3racing Sakura Zero (#SAK-40A)
or the Universal Shaft 46mm For 3racing Sakura Zero (#SAK-40)?


Not sure if the pin is long enough or is it a tad bit shorter like the Tamiya ones?

I am running TOP retainers http://rcmarket.com.hk/product_info....oducts_id=7487 with the grub screw removed, so maybe this means there is less wear as the joint is more free as the steering angles are applied to it. Mine have done over 30 runs now

Got the car from the first US batch. Very easy car to drive, tons of transaction and extremely balanced from left to right w/o the need of lead weights.

Use the IIC setups as a starting point for your Jaco Blue setup. You might want to go with 1.5mm spacers under the front pivot blocks if traction comes up during the day. (Korey's suggestion)

Nothing else beside a body like Speed6 or LTC-R to make the car handle out of the box.

A little OT but from all your experiences with these two bodies...
which body gives more better in-field steering/stability?

Pros & Cons of the Speed6 vs LTC-R?

I've never tried the LTC-R...Been using Speed6 for quite some time now..

also whats the major benefit of the 3Racing Wing added to these..

I'm not one to feel sensitive mechanical trends from a car's behavior, just don't have the experience under my belt yet. But the one thing I do feel between these two bodies is the corner entry aggressiveness. The LTC feels more aggressive around the turns.

Most of the drivers at Horsham use the LTC.

Well after a bit of research I believe the TCX is for me. The only thing I am worried about is the part support.

Does anyone have some tips with the TCX they would like to share? That would be nice!

Thanks

I've been able to procure parts from speedtechrc, and the only reason they may not have it, is because *I* bought it already. They have told me that they are getting parts as fast as their distributers are getting it, so its only a matter of time before they can get all the parts they want to carry.

Overall, the car has held up to some pretty rough driving, and I have not broken anything yet *knocks on wood*.

As far as tips go, just follow the instructions, and when you come to the sway bars, use .5mm (the thinnest ones) shims in-between the bulkhead and the sway bar mount. This trick was mentioned a while ago, and it works really well in keeping the sway bar free from binding. Also, don't over-tighten the sway bar mount set screws, you want the bar to move freely up and down, but the bar needs to not move side to side in the mount.

Enjoy the car, mine has been outstanding on the track, and has responded VERY well to setup changes.
