Any one got the part number for the B's?

Default NSX & 360 bodies

Does anyone have the part numbers for the light weight version of the NSX and Modena 360 bodies? I need to order one and want to make sure I get it right.

Thx,
Sccotty P

I don't know the part# of the NSX body, but you should be able to get it from the parts list for the TA04R kit that includes that body. Is there a "heavy" version of the 360? I didn't notice any difference between the bagged and boxed versions, but I have one of each at home so I can weight them.

Default part #'s

Nsx lightweight 49276, Ferrari LW 49179. If the part # starts with a 5 then its the standard.

Default RE: TA04-R TUNED CHASSIS KIT

ive got a TA04's and im looking at possibly getting a TA04-R TUNED CHASSIS KIT, from what i understand this is TCS legal?
also how would this compare to say an EVO3? handling/speed wise. would i notice much differance from the S tot he TUNED? i was going to get a few hop-ups for my S when i saw this and decided that i might aswell just buy one instead of going through all the bits and pieces.
it is a worthy upgrade? i want to run an 11t at TCS. but i normally run in 540 and am just moving into stock as im still new to this.. :P
or should i just keep my S for now (and TCS) then upgrade to somethign else better in a couple of months.

I am currently running the Tamiya 0.4 module gears on my TA04 and have found that the smallest speck of dirt will cause damage to the alloy pinion. I am running 120/50 with a 540 motor.

Is there any combination in 48 pitch that will give me the same ratio and that will fit? Am I forced to run the Tamiya gears knowing that they won't last very long and will have to be replaced on a periodic basis which is more frequent than I would like?

If I run 64 pitch, am I still likely to encounter the same problems as I am experiencing now?

Thanks.

The R chassis is well worth the upgrade from the S chassis. It is the dominant chassis in GT2. All the hop ups are worth it. Although, if you plan on running an 11 turn, you should strongly consider an EVO3. The R would get it's butt kicked from the EVO's.

I use .6 module, Hardened 83T
Tamiya only makes pinions up to 26teeth, but you can always order after market .6 module in Japan!!!
48 pitch is hard in the TAo4-R, you need around 90+++ teeth

and also, you have to lengthen the holes for the motor mount, to be able to use aftrmarket .6modules. as long as you are not running any TCS race

peace and happy racing!!!

Lems,

Congratulation on your first win. Hope to have some friendly race with you on the track together with our TA04. Do you share some racing tips with a newbie?

Swanny try to use 84/35 48 pitch combination. It will work. Now I use 85/34 for my TA04

LHS where I bought my last few spurs said Robinson only makes them in the 'odd' numbers.

(anyone wants to refute?)

I got mine from rainbowten.co.jp in japan, they are made by Cross. You just have to scroll downthe list!

The 48pitch as suggested by Rhes4 will work good also. I just don't like the idea of having a Big pinion for stock class.
You can try that first.

TAO4 guys, to make your steering like melted butter, get the alum knuckles for the TBevo3!!! RC-Square makes them.
And to make it more stiffer, I used 2 upper decks!!

BALUGA: i should be the one getting tips from you!!! and yes I do not have any secrets to my setups.
