Yup, Part# TAMIYA49343 TRF415 BELT STABILIZER.

From what I've been told it adds a pulley underneath the top plate, and pushes down on the top of the front belt.

Hope it helps

I just installed the LW arm set, locked center and white belts. Just going to try stock set up and go from there. Race Saturday(tomorrow), we'll see how that goes.

Thanks in advance!

Stock setup for the lwt arms is very good, I think the only things you might want to change is springs and roll bars, otherwise leave as is.
I have a setup for indoors, running on a running track with rubber tyres, but it still has kit springs, so I'm pretty sure I can make it better now I have the tuned spring set.

Not sure, depends if you use the spool or one-ways. Probably would work quite well, might want to stiffen it up a little (blue or white springs). The track that that setups has been used on generally takes a while to rubber in, so the grip is pretty low. For a track with lots of grip, there might be way too much steering.

I'm gonna run on carpet tomorrow night, but I'm gonna run the one ways after last time. I think a good starting point (with one-ways) is white springs on the front, blue on the rear, and no roll bars.

Hope it helps
Ed

tcmerf,

Check with Fred Medel when you get to the track on Saturday, he's got a very good LW suspension setup already (worked very well for him at the KO race)
