I had fun and ran well with the standard MY02 and I can't wait to run the new M. I'm keeping my R3 for Stock and 19turn class. Monster for MOD
i think i read it here somewhere that my02 and 415 parts are interchangeable. is it true? if it is, i might keep both when the monster arrives looks like a really interesting car. too bad the forums seem to have died down on the monster and the website is in jap. did the r3 arrive already?

Just to move back on topic (ie TRF415.... J/K )

Tried the new suspension arms on saturday, racing stock indoors on carpet. (I'm not going to mention friday nights racing of mod, it was that bad...)

Managed a pretty good comparision bettween the old and new suspension, as I had run the car the previous week on the same surface. And I can say the new arms feel a little quicker. However, I did need to shim up the arms a little to remove some slop, ended up placing an extra 0.7mm spacer on the inside piviots all round, and a 0.1mm spacer on the outside pins on the front C-Hubs. Now I have lovely smooth suspension, that is slop free ..... apart from a bent rear hinge pin

Anyone know of anywhere that sells Ti hinge pins? (or Ti ones from other cars that can be used) I don't want to have to keep ordering std ones, a most of my parts come from abroad, as I've been finding it exceptonally difficult ot get parts for the car over here in the UK (damm you The Hobby Company).

Anyway just a quick update really, still loveing the car, and the Kudous it gets in the pits too

Now I really need to learn how to drive mod again....

Regards
Ed

i dont think Ti hinge pins are worth it mate, they arent stronger then steel , just lighter. They bend in a different way, ull get a more obvious bend with a Ti hinge pin but with steel a more "clocked" bend..
So the new suspension... worth the purchase?

and has anyone managed to steel surikarns reedy race setup yet? id love to see.

thanks

Evo.

PS: Ben C has stopped racing for tamiya in the uk.

Yes it happened a few weeks back. He was offered a TRF drive from Japan but a certain person/persons would not give the authoroty for this to happen.

Alittle trick I learned when running the TC3. For the 415, get some 3mm hardened drill rod blanks and cut them to the proper length. I got some from McMaster-Carr. You may break one, but you cannot bend one. A smooth suspension every time out.

Trevor, Fred has disallowed the car feeling that it was just too much race jellybean and not in the spirit of what TCS has been in the past good or bad. Also if it was allowed just about all would run that body only whether they needed it or not and it. This would make TCS just like any other club or national event with a bunch of the same car in different colors.

Probably a good idea. I sure hope every race has different real car like bodies like the TCS.
