Yup, there is no carbon brace. But there is a plastic bone looking brace to connect both arms though. I'm using a Surikarn EVO III to convert so don't really know what's going on...hehe

Ok TFR, here's what ya need:

Part# 50882 is the "King pin" that goes through the cross brace. They are basically specially shaped screws. There are also two 3mm (inner diameter??) shims, part# 50586, that fit in between the cross brace and the bell crank. The king pin goes through the center of the shim. You need two of each. The cross brace mounts on the bottom of the bellcranks. Good luck!

Cool. I installed the alum bellcranks last night and they come with the hardware as well. I didn't realize that before.

SSG reinforcing plate 53679 13.00

They are all using the same ones no matter what the header card says. They already make it that the )4 has every advantage known to man. Tamiya already catters to that car for TCS and don't really seem to want any other car to be fast in GT2 especially. Well they can try that but at my TCS race 2 weeks ago my TB-02 was a lap faster than any 04 on GT2 and was 4 seconds faster than any GT1 car so I'm vindacated by that. Even with that plastic tub, overweight none adjustable motor mount I laid the smackdown on the over privalidged 04.
Sounds like your ready to take a trip out to the left coast?

It would be really fun I bet. Sure that I could learn alot about what the left coast guys are doing to their Tamiya stuff. Plus to run on the Tamiya track would be great. More than likely the best track that I would ever run on to..

Wyd get yer butt out here for Nats the guys are all fun and you are right it would be the best track you ever drove on.

The worst cost for the trip is hotel and talk with a few here you could probably find a roomie to help the costs. You could Madjaclk ugly mug but he could scare the piss outta you in the Audi.

John you are probably correct on the count but it probably won't get much bigger cause Kevin has himself a honey
