If I had to take a guess, they look like they are off a Slash Front (2wd). I'm glad to see this Thread regaining speed! How do the most of you guys set your front and rear diffs? I was told to loosen up the diff untill one tire goes forward and one goes backward. The way I have the rear set now is that they both go in the same direction when spun. This goes for the front as well. I'm only running a Tekin 17.5 with a little timing with the slipper clutch option.

As far as diffs go, after years of RC and racing, I've developed a "feel" for a diff. I guess not too loose and not "notchy" or too tight. Wish I could quantify it.

Well from tightening down, how many turns out would you say if you had to guess?I've also seen a guy use Traxxas Slipper Pegs to tighten down his diff to act like a locker. That will be going in after my diff balls go south.

Other than the Tamiya spring kit, what other springs will work on the shocks?

To my knowledge, there are no gear diffs for the DF03. Possible close subs would be the gear diff from M05 / M06, although they're most likely too wide

DF03RA is basically the Off Road DF03 buggy converted to a road car, so does well on the dirt. TT01 is essentially a beginners on road car, so not so good.

Which kits have the inner body included? Google was no help.

I'm about to pick one of these up. They look cool and I want something to run when I can't get to a track.

The closer I get to buying one, the more questions I will post after looking through this thread a bit more.

None of them come with an inner body. You'll have to find one online.. they're out of stock at the moment on Tamiyausa.com

This shows on the TamiyaUSA site that it includes a Dark Impact inner body.

Hope that helps.

Forget google - straight to Tamiya.com

Lancer Evo IV - Has the inner cover
Toyota Celica - Has driver figures, so I assume it has the inner cover too. Maybe not though..

Can anyone tell me how he got sooo much extra ground clearance?! The front shock tower doesn't look stock, that and he doesn't say what kind it is. I'd love to get that little bit extra! I really didn't feel like joining another RC Forum, so I'm hoping either someone else is a member with a DF and can ask him, or someone actually knows the guy haha! I ended up ordering 2 sets of CVDs (Tamiya#53792) from a place called Tamiya-model.com. Also, what are you guys running for shock pistons and shocks? I almost was thinking about running some AE B4 front shocks all the way around. But, I think they would be much too long.
I'm guessing, but I reckon he has longer shock ends on the bottom to give him longer shocks, and has possible shaved some of the chassis to allow the A-arms to droop further.

I just installed a few upgrades onto my chassis:
-blue aluminum motor plate
-blue aluminum heat sink bars
-blue aluminum steering rod

I also have a set of TRF shocks I might install as well.

What other upgrades should I get?
