Anyone use this car in VTA if so has anyone had issues with the inside of the rim wearing the bottom edge of the arm upon suspension compression because these

wheels are so wide notice the little v notch in the arm and this is on all four suspension arms I have tried spacing out the wheels to no avail any suggestions would be great only option so far is to put limiters on the shock shaft to prevent the wheel from hitting there I have also ever so slightly shaved the arm but now it's a weak point

not sure if its legal or not. But you can take a dremmel to the inside of the rim and remove a little material. Use to do that on a lot of older style 1/10th rims to fix that problem. You dont need to take off much. I dont understand how the rear suspension would do that though

I have a TA-07 Pro, but I'm tempted to buy the MS kit for carpet racing. As of this post (June 24, 2020), the price of the kit on Tamiya USA's website is showing on sale for $425.00 USD.

Agree, I have only ran it on black carpet and was too much flex with all the upper stiffeners attached.

The Christian Donath aluminum chassis made it much better, but too bad it bent easily (in my hands), bought 2 and bent them all already.

So little bit of a surprise to me given the rarity of this car, at least in my experience, but looks like we're getting an MSX

Hopefully like the 419X to the 419XR we'll get a conversion kit or at least have some cross compatible upgrades for the current MS

42364 TA07 MSX Chassis Kit

The TA07 has been a revelation since its first release, providing smooth and versatile drive in a single beltdriven setup. Now it gets an ultra-racy release in the form of the top-spec TA07 MSX chassis, based upon the TA07 MS (Item 42326).

Features a choice of two new motor positions, which are slightly further rearward than Position 2 and 3 from the original TA07 PRO respectively. Motor and spur gear positions are reversed, improving traction under acceleration and when cornering.
Dedicated chassis parts are used 2mm thickness dual bridge type vertical frame, and a choice of carbon fiber or aluminum lower decks. Different combinations of upper deck part (4 total are included) are used for the different motor positions.
TRF Super Short Big Bore Dampers are standard, but stays are also included for use with longer dampers.
Features the revolutionary TRF420 suspension setup, with plenty of potential for fine-tuning your car including pinpoint alterations thanks to suspension mount bushings..
Utilizes dedicated lower bulkhead, motor mount, and servo mount components.
Features a longer 771mm drive belt.
Comes in a stylish and handy carry case.

Default TA07MSX

Running on carpet, an aluminum chassis was what I was hoping to have for my TA07MS...

I'm already sold! Expecting a Christmas release similar to the MS.
