I doubt they will see any more, they were limited edition and there are no more left now, only the ones currently in stock at hobby shops or for sale on certain auction sites!

I pop those on before I pop the lower halves into the suspsension. Then I put the swaybars in and tighten with the set screw.

Use pliars to push that sway bar end into the ball cup, it should be tight fitting. You can loosen it up by squeezing the ball cup with pliars, it helps.

In looking,some of the places say "out of stock,due late october",so hopefully there will be some more.Can anyone tell what the differences are between the MRE and the Refine2?Is it cosmetics or significant parts?That's the other option,I guess.Thanks,Mario.

Centre pulley is different, rear hubs are different (think someone said .5mm lower), gold outer hinge pins, evoV steering, spools, black roll bars, properly made pulleys to fit the car (instead of the TA05 ones), new wheel axes and probably some other things i've forgot.

don, tamiya will be drilling 4mm chassis for the reinhard steering but i dont know when. you can drill it yourself its easy. everything else fits the same you just have to use the msx steering rack and top plate. you have to use hpi pro 4 knuckles and axles for the lightweight suspension with foams. it works great. i run mine at southshore every sunday. you can check out my setup. it ran very well last week.

For medium traction outdoor asphalt, what kind of tires are you guys running? I am looking at the RP tires, but don't know what tires are for what.
