someone confirm this rumor.. But is it right what I heard?? Someone told me Surikarn is no longer going to be in Tamiya? Will he really be racing for Corally?

Surikarn will be just running the Corally 1:12 car. That´s all. He will stay with Tamiya for touring cars.

Yes, I think Rheinard has a good chance at the Worlds and would love to see him win it. But I also wouldn't mind seeing the new TC4 and Barry Baker win it as well. He's long over due. They need a World Title under their belt with a car (TC3) that has done soo well over the past several years. But then again, I'd like for Tamiya to win again just to show everyone that it wasn't a fluke last time. So I don't really have a top pick. Mine is a top 4 pick for the Worlds... Mark, Barry, Masami, or Hara.

If I had to pick an "under dog" it would be Tamiya's Kazuo Muramatsu or HPI's Yoshioka (these guys are fast, but not on everyones top list). Maezumi would be another good choice in my book.

Going back to the instructions of my old MR4, it should be 6 balls in the thrust wash, sandwedged between the two plates. What I found best when building mine was to take one of the plates, put it on the screw, coat it in AE sleath (black) greese, place the balls on (the greese holds 'em in place) and then add the top plate.

And on the worlds front, what about Dave Spashett... he's done it before, and will probably have the new Losi too.
Still want a Tam driver to win it though (and preferably Marc with a 415)

Hope it Helps
Ed

My bet is on hara, not because of hpi, just because he's hara...

Other than:
ZS-501 DIFF HALVES you will get two sets one for the front and one for the rear. you will use the FRONT parts, these will have the equal spacing for the outer bearings.
ZS-506 DIFF RINGS,
ZS-507 THRUST BALLS AND WASHERS
ZC-507T if you want carbide balls
ZS-508 DIFF SCREW AND LOCK NUT.
cost.. less then $20.00 u.s. (little more with carbide balls)

...what parts are neccessary to complete the front diff. Does the stock tamiya pulley work, or do I need a different one? What about bearings, shims, etc?
