For those of you making the trek out to NorCal, be sure to introduce yourselves so we can swap data, tips, tricks and debrief about the cars. I've got pretty limited wheel time with it (previous seasons I've run AE & XRAY), so I'm open to hearing about everyone's exepriences with the car so far.

My name is Martin Mejia, I'm running Open Mod.

Nice paint! I hope my airbrushed body survives a local event this weekend because I won't have time to get another done for RROC! Maybe we can pit together, I won't know anyone at all

Rock the single-color practice body for the local event and save the good stuff for the Reedy! You can pit by my buddies and I; we're a local bunch who are all pretty decent... but you better like to laugh a lot. I'm the only local Tammy guy though... all of the homies run AE, XRAY, or Yokomo.

Martin~! How long have you been racing TAMIYA?


Oppps, quote the wrong post. Craig, if you pit with Martin, he's a good guy.

Sounds good, I'm getting seriously excited now - I've always wanted to go to RROC

Is it good idea to have 1 deg toe out on the front?

Looking at the chart do i just need a 1d part no, 54072 on the v5?

sorry for the noob question but what happens if you change the front toe but reducing the steering links?

The front toe out is set by the steering links. Changing to a D ff block will give you 0.5 arm sweep (in board toe out).

Thanks Joey. I ran the original 416 for a couple seasons, and since then raced Xray and AE too. This year I've come full circle and returned back to Tamiya. I just got my car built not too long ago so I'm still teething it out a bit, but so far I love the way the car feels. I guess old flames never really die!

How are people building their gear diffs these days? Still grinding the bigger bevel gears to 3.57mm like Jilles does in his video?

I do not. I am using the metal bevel gears from TA06.

are they a pretty straight forward swap, or is there still some sanding and whatnot?

like JoeyE, i use the steel bevel gears... no need to sand anything.
i also use the 1-piece .3mm shim (417v5) instead of using 3 x .1 shims
