Hey Mike! I have some but the part # is 53284 That may help you to order them. If not, I can bring you a package in a couple of weeks to Memphis. I know my local shop started the online sales thing but not sure how good it is. Check out www.trackside.com
to see. Don't think we have the steering post. We have the whole set but don't think it came with the posts.

tamiya motors come with a instruction sheet which states the recommended gear ration range... follow it!!! make small adjustments according to ur track requirements but try to stay within the range...

Default SHOCK PROBLEMS

HI guys,

problem i have with my TAO4-R is that when if i take the springs of the shockie and i push the piston up, the piston doesn't return all the way out stretched, some of them only come out a little. i have tried to see if i had less oil, but it seem nothing i change seem to make them come out all the way like my TC3 does?

any clues

You have air in the shocks or you didn't put enough oil in them when you built them originally. I would suggest that you replace the o-rings that seal the shock shaft. I like the GS Racing silicone o-rings. They work reallly well. The orange ones are crappy and don't seal well.

The piston does not have to rebound all the way.
If you want to create more pressure. Try using the black rubber o-rings on top of the round seals instead of the red foams.

I don't race mod in my car, but I found that the car works best with Tamiya tires. At least, on the tracks that I race on. I use Pit Shimizu tires on my XXX-S and they are great. They have a wide range of compounds and all are excellent. I mostly run 27's or 30's with Echo red, HPI green or Yokomo medium inserts. I prefer to set my cars up to use the same tire/insert combo all around. I've raced my TA04 on carpet and asphalt and my laptimes are always better with Tamiya tires on that car. Dunno why, but I guess it was designed to be used with Tamiya tires for TCS. Ride makes the tires for Tamiya, so their tires should work equally well. I have at least one set of 26mm Type A, 26mm Type B, 24mm Type A and 24mm Type B2 and all work well depending on track conditions. I run a medium/hard insert on the 24mm tires and medium on the 26mm tires. I hope that helps.

Psycho: First off, thanks for your help!
I have 4 Type A tires and they do work well, there allitle old though, ill pick up another set. Also some of the Shimizu's and HPI's. Thanks agian.

Difuser: Ya, thats where i get most of my tamiya stuff at, I actually work at HobbyTown down there in Southcenter, I dont think ill have time to go down there this week though, life has been very bussy this week.

Also, i just put in an HPI center one-way on the TA04 by cutting the rear drive gear pully thingy in half, Its a whole new car, Alot harder to control but its acceleration and turning are well worth it.

Anyways, thanks guys

That HPI part is TCS illegal as well. Interesting, though.
