Default Built completed

Finally i completed the built of my FF04EVO Black Edition.



It got a Tamiya Golf GTI 24 shell on it and i added some hopups or exchanged some parts to better versions, mostly from TRF419X:

- Switched to big diameter springs
- Switched to big diameter spring collars
- Switched to big diameter spring retainer (black aluminium)
- Switched to TRF rod guides hard
- Switched to TRF X-rings 50 durometer
- Switched to damper low friction ball heads (short) from 419X
- Switched to low friction ball heads for the turnbuckle linkages
- Switched to v-parts low friction
- Switched to titanium axles
- Screws were exchanged to FF04 titanium set
- Parts NN4 and NN20 exchanged from plastic to aluminium
- Parts NN2 were exchanged to the 419X delrin version (8x axle balls)
- Added aluminium toe blocks (1XD-xd/xd-1A)
- Added aluminium spacer in black (5/6.4 x 1.5) for better bearing support in the axles hubs
- Added 418 sway bar kit (front) with low fricton ball heads (419) and low friction ball cups all around
- Added battery rubber tape (419X)
- Battery retainers switched to aluminium (TB03 aluminium servo holder short and two battery posts from a TA05VDF)
- Front diff internals are steel (gears) and aluminium (gear axles) and added aluminium diff cover from TA06
- Switched to aluminium servo horn
- Added aluminium servo clamps (black)
- Switched to lightweight aluminium axles (rear)
- Added some other stuff like TRF body holders and some cable managment clamps etc.

It was a joy to bild this car. Everything is smooth and without play. Drivetrain is one of the freest i've ever seen. But the most important: it's the interesting and funniest car i've ever driven beside the 4WD and RWD i have. FF is so different!

Tamiya should push this class in Europe.
