Thanks Odude!

I knew I would hear that everything was ok if I paid attention to detail.

Man, your stuff looked hooked up this weekend!

I'm gonna start my build in a few minutes! This is gonna be cool.

Non pro kit so I gotta score some shocks, I have the motor plate and the tires in the kit actually look kinda sticky, foams not too terrible either.

Any tips on real race tires and foams?
Who knows what's in this kit?

I have a pm into Rodzilla too.

Thanks, any tips greatly appreciated!

Again, the attached image containing setup information a few post ago has been updated with a fix.
Just want to confirm no stabilizer font or rear correct?

the stock diff nut is a nylock.. i never had mine back out. my routine while building.. tighten till fully snug, then backoff out 1/4 - 1/2 turn.. should be golden.

Dang!

Which shocks rule?

#53571 Flourine coated, grey colored (titanium nitride coated shafts with these? can't tell) $88 retail/Tamiya or

#42102 "New" Flourine coated, blue anodized outside, titanium nitride shafts (listed) $84 retail/Tamiya

Does cost reflect the better shock package, or is color the only difference?
Looks like different spring retainers on each set with the grey set having the aluminum ones?

Not sure what the difference between those two sets are.. same words in both descriptions, just shuffled around.. if the aluminum spring retainers are the '1mm down' version, go with that set... may come in handy... '1mm down' version retainers allow for a lil more adjustment on the preload... basically, on some of the longer sedan springs when installed you cant put preload to set ride height. thus, the '1mm down' retainer drops the spring position on the shock by 1mm... giving you a lil more room to add preload/set your ride height at the collar...

If you can run whatever tires you want, I have had great results on outdoor asphalt with Sorex 36R front, 32R rear, SJ-R inserts, mounted on the FF03PRO kit rims. The car was stuck and wear was minimal.

Ok here we go again,

New shock #s (since the one set above was unthreaded bodies).

the new # to throw into the mix is #49355 Marc Rheinhard special edition "Special Blue" as offered in the TRF415 MS kit. That chassis kit's the real deal right?

compared to the #42102.

Both flourine coated and both blue threaded bodies

Different color blue?

Gonna try to call Tamiya and see if they can shed some light.

I only found shock parts numbers, bodies, shafts... no set of 4.

Both of these numbers are described as being for all touring cars so each will work, gotta be same size.
Just curious if I'll miss out on any certain advantage, can't imagine that the Marc Rheinhard ones would be anything less that the shizzle.

So while I wait to hear or jump into a set, what about springs?

Short or long are the choices. Sheesh.

I never did Tamiya touring cars so this is all new territory for me.

I did get TRF short shocks for my mini tho and of course they are short springs but I'm pretty sure they are also touring car springs.

Shock story:

#42102 = new, hard coated, black bodies, blue top and bottom, nitrided shafts

#49355 Rheinhard = older, hard coated, all blue, shafts?

i would imagine the Rehienhards had nitride shafts too.. just buy a set and call it a day.. they are still TAMIYA TRF shocks either way... Which are the 'choice' shock in all of RC, PERIOD.. EVERY Manufacturer to date has had at least one of their team drives who had used TAMIYA TRF shocks on their non-Tamiya ride once...
