Hi rowdyrj,

I guess this question is addressed to me... well, the site is still on the net somewhere. It's just that I haven't updated it in years (yup, that long already... approx 2 years of no updates)... I've been wanting to revive it but just do not have the extra time as before... another problem I had was a permanent home for the site. I was too cheap to pay for a hosting service back then so I had to deal with limited space and pop-ups all the time. It went from AOL to GEOCITIES to XOOM and finally to 0catch.com.

If anybody's still interested to see this site... go to http://taobracing.0catch.com ... just a warning though, the popups are terrible as always!!! (Anybody out there want to share 50megs of space? Hehehe...)

Yes it's me I'm in GA. I also race Oval cars as well as touring cars
I have a 04R that I picked up for $100 buck and a Yokomo MR4-TC Pro. I will start racing at RC Toys For Boys in Atlanta in a few weeks. Its an indoor carpet track so my gear will have to change.

Does anybody know if the new al. adjustable suspension blocks can be used with the carbon tub? Somebody told me that they could only be used with the CF lower chassis plate.

It will only take a side by side or stick! the chassis design is from the original ta04 and not the 414.

Thanks for that information, in that case i do not really see any reason for me to buy the kit as i have a TA04 R and a TA04 with the carbon lower chassis and the geometry does not change on the new one does it? I think the shock towers are different and the new front roll bar, but those are the only change? Rick

From what I understand the toe blocks will be a must have upgrade for the car as they have 2 hinge pin locations so you will be able to further adjust roll centers and they will also retro to the carbon tub.
This was from Fred at TA they just got their press cars in this week to send out to the mags
