You have to buy 2 sets just to get 4 red springs huh?

Will HPI shocks fit? I heard they will, which ones will fit?

WHat are the shock mm?

yes you have to buy 2 sets, not sure if tamiya has it in separate packages just like the short version.

HPI/HB shocks should fit cos TRF drivers use it but i'm not sure on the size.

I run the reds in the rear. I run a stiffer spring in the front. This seems to give me more rear grip.

If anyone knows what type of HPI shock springs will fit the stock CVA shocks on the TB03 let me know. Much appreciated.

After some more research, it seem some are using the 46mm Swing Shafts rather than the 44mm I purchased. Am I OK to still go with the 44mm???
Thanks...

I'm currently using the 44 swing shafts and they are working great, maybe if you are using 3rd party hop up you need a longer swing shafts.

Thanks Max.
Pretty much done with the build, and they seem to fit fine. Hope to finish up this weekend and give this thing a spin! With a 2 1/2 year old daughter, and a wife with an ever growing "honey do list", it's a nightmare finding the time to work on this project.
By the way Max (or anyone else), what are your overall impressions of the car? I have read every post on this forum, and it's turned into one big blur in my brain
Regards,
Don

Anyone know where I can get the ball studs seen in this picture? I like the fact they can be removed with a hex wrench (rather than having to pry off the tie-rod or shock), not to mention the cool blue color .
Thanks!

Anyone know where I can get a good starting setup for rubber tires on carpet? I will be running stock class on a smaller indoor carpet track. I have found little in the Evo IV thread. Any help would be great, thanks.

Ciao Don,
i'm also fighting with my wife, and for my luck i don't have a child yet, but i hope for a boy .
Anyhow, thaking into consideration that a resume my hobby after 6 years of stop due to job trouble, i'm very happy of the car, the model is quite easy to set up and with the right hop up also fast, when a start once more i purchased a team magic e4rs, but the feeling with the model was not good.
last sunday i was on the track and my model was faster than many xray, that here in italy is the most used model.

For Phisher,
Check previous post as Timmie published a carpet set up for me.

Ciao
Max

Front spool is a must on asphalt and carpet.
