Probably ebay or RCMart... I just checked Tamiya USA site, not on there.

Finally getting around to building the FF04 Evo I have. Next will be the Black Edition, but I must admit - I love the BLUE





Added the Tamiya aluminum suspension mounts and blocks...

looking good so far.. except..

your rear arms are backwards. you are currently mounting the shock in the holes for the swaybars... don't worry, I did the same thing when I first built mine.

if I'm not mistaken, the manual actually tells you to do what you did.. but it it works better (for the swaybar) if you flip them

$0.02

You mean flip them over, front-to-back or to the other side? Flipping them over front to back only puts one hole in the rear of the arm for shock mounting... is this what you mean? Here is the manual picture.



So, flip them over, on the same side, and put the droop screw through the other side. Got a pic of yours??

Thanks for the advice - and I think this is the FF04 I bought from you.

yes, swap the arms left-to-right as you have them now.. droop screw will be forward of the arm, sinlge hole for the damper in the rear (similar to the Front arm). then you will have a choice of three holes to get a proper (better) leverage on the swaybar link..

hope this helps

Thanks brother!! Will fix tonight. I also had the rear susp blocks reversed for the rear arm hinge pins. Basically had +toe on the rear... Swapped those around and is much better - looks better anyway.

You have to buy the whole kit. They don't sell those parts separately.

The black motor mount is especially for the black evo kit
the only way to get it would be to buy a standard xv01 plate, spray it with tamiya metal primer then coat it with a gloss black preferably tamiya ts-14.

or buy the kit to be simple

Aracefan thats a sweet blue one.

Guys in your kits did you get some hardware for the front swaybar, but not all required to run one like the rear? In my black edition kit i have all the parts except the aluminum ball link parts that mount to the swaybar and via cups to the arms. I'd like to get those in black as well.

Hi guys, I'm looking to buy spare parts for a FF04, but can't find anywhere except tamiya-usa. I'm currently in the UK. Where you guys buy your replacement parts in Europe?

In special, the parts that I'm looking for are:
BA33 - Front Bulkhead - 3458163
BB29 - Steering Post x2 - 9804846
BA16 - Spacer x2 - 53539
BC11 - Center Post x2 - 9804847

Tamico in Germany might have them. But ultimately you buy Tamiya spare parts from whoever has them, because Tamiya kinda sucks at keeping parts in-stock if they're only used on one or two kits.

Default Spare Parts

Sorry to say. You will not find one spare part in Germany for FF04Evo.

Tamiya Germany sucks! The lack of spare parts was the reason, i didn't bought this beautiful kit. Every part has a special order number.

They did the same shit with Evo6MS. Tried to get a spare aluminum lower deck...

You can ask the customer support @Tamiya Germany if they can get the parts from Japan.

Good luck.

Google your partnumber. I found a swiss shop that still can get rare parts (like aluminium parts for FF03evo). Maybe you are lucky!

Thanks guys, that's what I was afraid of. Apparently, since this is sort of a TRF chassis, there's no real market for hop ups, which means that the replacement parts are very scarce. In fact, I was looking for these parts in order to make a new carbon fibre conversion for my XV-01. I guess I'll have to wait until I can find a used FF-04 EVO for sale somewhere.

Cheers guys.
