have you had a problem with the tamiya parts? Aside from using TA 05 c hubs

White is always for front, and blue for rear when doing carpet racing.
when doing asphalt,its white for front and STILL blue for rear,but you can use yellow for rear as its softer then blue ;-)
Blue and yellow are used in manual. Blue front yellow rear. Really it depends on the surface. I'm using blue front and rear and the car works great on high bite asphalt.

Where is the easiest place to get some tamiya rear sway bars? Everyone Ive found on line is out of stock. Some older black ones would be perfect!

Nope, they are great. The carbon tamiya hubs are sort of weak and the plastic ones have far too much flex. The xray plastics are stiff enough but almost indestructible.

It bolts to the chassis where your esc goes. It "keeps the motor cooler" but it is very useful for rebuilds so that you don't have to pick off double sided tape if you need to remove the esc from the chassis.

Yep...also provides a nice flat surface to mount your ESC on instead of that little strip of graphite. Please excuse the blurry pics!

Cool idea. Does it affect chassis flex?

I thought it kinda looked like a diffuser, but I figured it probably wasn't that.

I bought a full TA05 swaybar set Tamiya (#53842) off ebay for under $20. I used to run both (TRF, TA05), and from memory they are the same fit.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=220744934636

I'm not 100% sure, but I think they fit or are the same. they should arrive anyday now, I Will post here unless somebody can confirm.
