I think that those are for the 950 bearings. The TB03 uses 1050 bearings like the 416 and would use the same rear upright.

Will the shocks be the shorter version? Therefore lowering the body mounts so the NSX body will fit properly.

Even if the shocks were shorter, the IFS bodies will never work in the 416. We have the M Chassis TRF dampers (54000), but that is not what prevents the IFS bodies from working. It is the damper mount itself. The HL dampers will be like the regular sedan TRF dampers, but with a new coating.

I tried out the v-dezign 1pc deck last night. I had originally intended to try it back-to-back with the 2pc without making any other set up changes but my car was not great in the first heat so I ended up changing a few things on the front suspension at the same time as putting it on. What I noticed straight away was how responsive the car was at the front while being glued at the rear. I figure the responsiveness was a result of the slightly increased stiffness and the rear grip was from the removal of the crossmember. I only ran it for the one heat and a few laps in the final (DNF ) so will post more once I've tested it further, but I'm pretty happy so far

one thing, Tamiya might consider in producing is a nice metal Lipo-tray in Tamiya-blue-color
Just to add some weight under the Lipo where it is best.
I'm certain, a lot of people would be interested in Blue metal Lipo-weight-tray.

It may be too early to ask, but does anyone know if all the new parts for the TRF416WE will be available as an upgrade package for people who already own the TRF416, or will it just be a whole new kit?

well a 13.5 setup probably wont be the same as marcs mod setups, but there are a bunch of good rubber and carpet setups on www.thard.co.uk

Don't think the Euros or Andernach ETS set ups ever saw the light of day but from what I saw they weren't greatly different from the reedy race ones. If you have C/C up front, XA/E on the rear, and 3mm under every camber link then you are pretty close to spot on for rubber

Does Tamiya (or anybody) make the toe blocks in a harder material? I'm tearing through 1D blocks up front lately, and it's starting to suck. Yeah, I've got longer screws through them.
