I'm only asking since most of the advice I have heard about IFS is to find a pushrod length that works and stick with it. I'm interested to hear your thoughts.

I'm curious too.

Rodzilla's setup sheets show the link to be set at 12.5mm and ride height at 5mm.
Doesn't look like the link is being changed to change ride height after spring rate changes.

Hi all,

I'm new to this forum and Tamiya. I ordered the car (civic) and plan to color the rims.
Can I dye these with clothing dye? I read years ago that some Tamiya rims warp in the boiling water.



Thanks
Benjamin

TA06 gear diffs. Rear diff should fit the FF-03.

Hope Tamiya recognize this as a hop up part for the FF so it can be used in TC events!

Exclamation FF03 GEAR DIFF

I mentioned this to Fred Medal about using the TA06 gear diff as a legal hopup for TCS on the FF03 and he had no problem with it. He also said there will be a gear diff for the FF03 coming out at some point, just not sure when. But, when it does I'm sure it will be identical to the TA06 rear gear diff~

May ok where you race but ours are sticky! It basically has to be on the FF03 parts list of the local supplier before it is allowed.

....but I am sure it is only a matter of time

I really hope it will.
However it also looks like the gearcase used on the ta06 is a bit different as opposed to the ff03's.
It seems to lean a bit to the spec-r gearcase (for ff03).

If anyone tries this please post here your outcome.

The SpecR is not metal, and don't think anyone has a Tamiya one yet.

Thanks.

Well the ta06s are being built right now (ta06 thread).
So maybe some FF-fan also bought the ta06, hence my Q.

Hope to get the fitting (stock ff03 case) answered as well.

Does anyone know if the 417 diff rings will fit on the tamiya aluminum diff joints for the ff03?

The 417 has 2 flat spots on the rings, but I cant tell if the ff03 alum diff has 2 notches or not (from pics) and if the diameter fits.

Thanks
