Maybe you just should go to Friedel. I think they should have a good tape.
Just found out GM-Racing still sells the glasfiber reinforced tape.
Part# is 98709

Unfortunately they only had the tamiya tape This is where I got my current tape from. Maybe I'll try Obi

Default Sorry

To all those I have offended, it was NOT a personal issue. I just find the similarities amazing. I said this once, and I will say it again, "If I was not running a Schumacher, I would be driving a TRF 415". So, you all see these are only my observations, and comments. I drove Dawgmeat's TRf 415 and like it, very similar to my car, but not my car. I am sure that all of the parts will be TRF's finest, and most innovative.


C.G.- Thanks for the word's, and I cant wait to settle your confusion once and for all! Hobby Chamber baby!!!!!!!!!!

OK now back to the topic at hand, The TRF 415. Raul is still angry that a Tamiya Avanti used to beat up on his PRO-CAT...the good old days.

Since this is my first time with the TRF touring car. What is the internal drive ratio?

Can it use Kimbrough Spurs and what size is best for carpet stock and 19t?

What option parts are necessary vs. what's nice to have?

Thanks for the help.

Carl:

internal drive ratio is: 2.1875
i use the white speedtechrc/xenon spur gears (100-102). im sure the kimbrough will work also.

option parts? car runs good bone stock id say heat sink bar (makes the rear bulkheads stiffer, and low friction belts.

or hit up rtypec, linger or martin crisp. those are the fast guys that frequent rctech.

The Kimbrough will work but the Speedtechrc/Xenon spur gears are far better. Running much more true than the Kimbroughs.

And if you can find the Kawada Super True Spurs they are "Much" better than any of the above..

Well i think that in carpet race is a lot better to use the old suspension...since a little hit with a board could make you loose the race..., and for all of us "normal" drivers could be a lot more interesting than 0.003 tenths of a second
Had just a little report on the Zillisheim indoor race posted in this thread http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...threadid=54203
Also some pictures.

I think Marc runs a Xenon gear currently. But I think he also used the RW gears in the past.
Regarding the white rear diff outdrives I don´t know. I never asked him on this. I have heard there are some white prototype but I also have heard the white EVO3 outdrives will work using some shims.

The EVOIII's are the norm ...here in Japan.. about .7mm~1mm worth of shims
