It's confusing since Tamiya lists both as "low friction"

53918 - TRF V parts, Low Friction (gray)
53334 - V parts, Low Friction (black)
Thanks Ling!

3) Where can I get a basic set up guide for foam carpet racing?

4) Which foam tyres do you suggest? What shore? And trim to what diameter? Will front nitro foam 26mm on all 4 corners works?

Thanks!
I think most people that tested the chassis preferred the 2.25, the 2pc top deck seems to be the best change if you're using a single piece. Apart from that I'd raise your RCs front and rear, and go to stiffer springs e.g. white/blue

Thanks CraigM...at least theres something I can do to my car...When you say raise the front and rear roll center... does it mean taking off or adding the spacers of the inner or outer camber link?

Adding spacers to the inner links lowers the roll center. Adding spacers to the rear outer link raises the rear roll center. I don't think the designers had any intent to allow for spacers to be added to the front outer link.
