Add a front roll bar if not using it already.

in my opinion... I tried many varies tuning..

1. changing the spring at rear (may be harder or softer depends on what shock oil you used)
2. changing the upper shock position ( just find traction at high speed)
3. try the spring tension with adjusting the colar....

before I put any additional parts on board the car such as stabilizer...


Using foam tyres...I cut and put them for F/R 24mm size and I never use any droop/ arm limiter...i will unscrew them... give it a try.
IMHO

Yip it will more than likely come with a geardiff but with a new transmission casing to allow for the slightly wider geardiff as opposed to the standard ball diff. It will be a direct replacement so you can remove your old transmission case and replace it with the new one which accepts the geardiff.

There is speculation that it is the one from the TA06 (rear geardiff)...... and would make sense as Tamiya often use the same parts across all their models to save costs. No need to redesign something that works just for a particular platform when you can just design around proven parts! Also cuts down on the amount of moulds they need to make for the different parts....saving the costs

TA06 rear diff case wont fit the FF03... screw holes are all different... its probably a totally new case all together.

If you buy the FF03 basic kit (either Civic bodyset), what must-have option parts should you get? Is the front diff still a problem?

as said before, here ir is again:

I think the Pro version is the better value. Upgrades that I recommend are;

- sway bars #54230
- alloy servo mounts (TB03 items)
- Carbon steering link #54261
- Alum spur gear adapter #54234
- Carbon rear damper stay #54258
- Carbon rear stiffener #54264
- Set of CVD (need several parts)

It's official, TA06 gear diff it is

From Tamiya's site:

The popular FF-03 chassis has been upgraded with a variety of race-spec tune-up parts to create the "R" version. This version of the chassis represents excellent value as it features newly designed parts including a carbon battery plate and a redesigned gear case which houses an oil filled gear differential unit to further enhance performance.


Includes the following Tamiya Option parts:
54289 FF-03 Carbon Reinforced K Parts
54290 FF-03 Carbon Reinforced M Parts
54031 TA05-IFS Carbon Reinforced F Parts
51333 TRF416 E Parts (Rear Upright)
51332 TRF416 C Parts (Front Upright)
53928 Short Reversible Suspension Arm
42102 TRF Special Damper (Hard Black Coating)
54078 44mm Swing Shafts
51444 TRF417 Cross Joint Set
51445 TRF417 Wheel Axle Set
53823 Clamp Type Alu. Wheel Hub (5mm Thick) 5
3709 Fluorine Coated Suspension Ball
53539 5.5mm Aluminum Spacer Set
54067 TB-03 Aluminum Suspension Mount (1XA)
54072 TB-03 Aluminum Suspension Mount (1D)
51000 Hi-Torque Servo Saver (Black)
51466 TA06 Gear Differential Unit Cup Joint Set
51464 TA06 Gear Differential Unit Gasket
51462 TA06 Rear Gear Differential Case Set (52T)
51460 TA06 Gear Differential Unit Bevel Gear Set


Watch sales of the 06 gear diff sky rocket..........

Ok the new R manual is already on Tamiya's site

Gearcase is not from the TA06 and it is a redesign of the old one to accomodate the TA06 gear diff! TA06 gearcase looks totally different.

100 000 weight oil is supplied.

Swing shafts are now 44mm and have the TRF417 style spring retainer to keep the whole universal together. Just hope the 46mm swing shafts will work otherwise most will have to go out and buy 44mm's...well for those that will upgrade to the geardiff/gearcase if they are needed.

Most R chassis kits usually include a set of wheels but they have been left out in this one!
