Hey Adam,
How'd that setup I sent you go? I hope you got it in time.
Oh and I've changed my mind about the MSX.... I'm already saving cash to get one

You have to trust the minds at Tamiya. Winning back to back World Championships was no fluke.

Hey Ed,

cheers for the setup. it was good. i put a about 1.5mm anti dive & anti squat and that smoothed it out over the bumps quite a lot. it pushed quite a bit out of corners so i tried the fl blues on the back. a little better but still had some understeer. especially the 2 corners coming towards the rostrum. very stable though and i could nail it coming into the chicane and through it onto the straight.
I'll be getting the msx as well when its released!
Adam.

Default KO Race

Good Job to DJ for winning the KO Race! I heard the pro suspension was dialed.

I wasn't going to use a spool for TCS. Anything less then Modified and I don't really think that a spool is going to be beneficial. I think a spool would have worked well at Fairy Meadow as well, even if Surikarn and Hara were going to use a oneway. 3 big braking areas would have made it fairly even between spools and oneways, especially as the EP layout was slightly diff then GP layout. Had we been racing GP layout, oneway would have been awesome around that top left corner.

Sorry if this is off-topic.

Do any of you know if Tamiya discontinued the TB02 that was recently released? I was thinking of getting one for my son and someone told me that it had been removed from the Tamiya line. If true, does Tamiya discontinue cars in short periods of time?


I just noticed that RCTYPE is on here... Any info Rod?

Graphite if any were discontinued it might have been the limited release TB02-R. As far as any of the other kits they should all be available. Parts will be easily available for quite a bit as the TA05 will be using the same suspension too.

Nah, you need a very open track or very high grip to use a spool.

The first three corners would have killed you, tho coming onto the straight would be better. You use steering for about 85% of the track so reducing it would reduce your lap speed a lot!

We shall see. You can still dial out the turn in understeer. You have to have a very different setup with a spool then with a oneway. I will be racing a spool I think. A guy was using a ball diff apparently with good results on the track too, so I think it'll suit most options fairly evenly.

Hi Lee...I'm not very familiar with the TB02 but I do know that it has huge hop up potential...to the point of being a tub Evo3. I'm not sure if they will be or if it is already discontinued but with TA05 coming out soon (and at a nice price point) I would look into that. Also, despite it's age, the TA04 is freaking bullet proof...but I believe the TA05 is here to take it's place. I'm patiently waiting for mine

dont you use a spool or a diff on tight lower grip tracks, and one way more suited for wide open lower higher grip tracks? thats always worked for me.
