Biggest change I see is you moved rear arm back, which took all the weight off the rear of the car, and less rear traction. Otherwise looks good. So the first thing would be move arm forward again (like when you got the car )

The inner hole on the arm is prolly the major point it softens the front suspension too much. Prolly point loads the suspension way too fast. Before you do anything else move the lower out on the arm and resume testing.

I agree with the D-man, that was the first thing I noticed.

Thumbs down Missing screws

I got a TB-02 yesterday with the Impul Z body . When i was building it i noticed that i couldnl't find some king pins that go into the caster blocks . The screw that has a ball end, then a cylinder type thing then a screw thread . Do i have to make this up or should it be included and it was the factories fault.

Thanks.
I bought it for drifting and im getting impacient!!

If it's the combined kingpin screw/ball stud, no, It should have been included.

4-deg caster, a/a blocks. BLue sway bar. 2mm uptravel for droop. Arms all the way back.
Ride height 4.5mm , camber 2, type A tires on grey rims and hard insert-full air gap. Sauced half with Paragon FXII

Rear
Shocks 50 wt Trinity oil Grey springs. Out on shock tower-out on arm.

Camber link is long on camber plate raised 1mm. Long on hub. LInk is pretty flat.

Yellow sway bar, stock hubs. 2.5mm uptravel for droop.

Arms 4mm back, a/b blocks. Ride height 5mm , camber 2, type A tires on grey rims and hard insert-full air gap. Sauced full with Paragon FXII

Body is NIsmo Skyline .

Let me know if I left anything out. OH_I would also traction roll if I even nicked a flapper. if I didnt touch a flapper-car wouldnt flip-probably because the car would slide instead of lift.

I also have now gone to 2 deg rear hubs, red rear sway bar and reduced droop all around. Also planningn on going to 3 deg rear camber..
even the F-R ride height to 5mm

Hey guys,

How should I shim the diff bearings (the 10x15mm ones) if I'm running Evo3 delrin diffs on both ends? should I stick with the TB-02 kit setting (0.1mm on both sides) or change the shimming (to loosen the bevel-diff gear mesh)? I'm running an MVP with 58/20 gearing...will loosening the mesh bring the danger of stripping gears?

Give them a call and say you were missing parts from your kit. It is pretty rare with Tamiya kits, but it does happen from time to time. In think in nearly 20 Tamiya kits I've bought and built, I only had parts missing from one (the diff balls, thrust bearings, and the screw were missing).

Thanks for all your help guys. I have added rear camber to the car (2+), moved out on arm on front shocks, added rear toe in via a/b blocks and 2deg hubs, moved my rear arms full forward. if it pushes but is other wise planted and balanced-I think I will be able to make adjustments from there.

I am also bringing a brand new set of type A's to run as well.

Thought of another question. What should the ehandling difference be between the Skyline body and the Acura 2003 NSX?

Thanks in advance,
Ray
