Also, the 0.5mm shims on the suspension shaft it too big and will bind. I had to use series of 0.1 shims to get it right.
i did get the bind as well, but i used the 0.5mm shims anyway, just 5min of play around my backyard, and it will loosen after that, no binding at all, i guess just wear and tear.

I bought some 4 degree chubs from multiple sources, and they're a distinctly different looking material, though the part numbers are the same. One is the graphite composite look, like the stock pieces or the arms. The other is kind of a shiny black plastic. Was there some kind of running change on the material, or is there something else going on? The parts seem to have been originally designed for the TA05-IFS.

I notice some shops sell the plastic chubs. You will find them cheap for around $2ish. Then they sell the carbon reinforced chubs around $4ish. Just be sure the package says reinforced. You'll also find cheap LW arm set like this too. I think they are around $7 for a full set. But they are plastic. Not the reinforced ones we normally have for like $8ish for 1 front and 1 rear. So becareful what you buy.

If there isn't a spec tire rule I like Team Sorex 28 up front and 24 out back with Yokomo firm inserts. If the track is lower grip then Sorex 24 up front and 20s out back...same insert.

Wait, the HB steel bones work? That's good news, since you can use them in the rear if you have trouble.
