If you go to Patrick's FB page, you will see it.

Today I will done my new Protoform LW Dodge Dart. Tonight I run on carpet again with my BD7 Setup
Works now. He's running 0.5 under each block! This will increase the camber gain which is causing your grip issue (too planted). I would remove the 0.5 both front and rear. The front link heights look decent. The rear outer link shims should be dropped down to 1 mm, 4 mm is a little excessive.

Front camber - 1.5
Rear camber is good

Toe out .5 or 1

No, that's the authentic R1 esc.

Mine arrived today and I started the build this evening. All smiles so far.. Always a pleasure building a Tamiya, specially a TRF.

Just out of curiosity, does anyone know, what's the weight of the clear silicone fluid, that the manual recommends for the differential?

Man! I wish I could drop coin on a 419! You're not giving up on the TB04 are you?

Are there "better", metal diff gears that would be advisable to replace the GV/51567 tree?

Why does my EVO 6 have metal gears and a plastic/static cross pin and the exact opposite on the 419....plastic gears with alum/keyed (x2) cross pins?
