But i have seen the TB02/TA04 kit and that seems to be in production still, which on its own is slightly confusing.

Anyways, what extra will i need if i used the TB02 LW sus kit?? Will it just be the universal joints/dog bones??? ANything else anyone can think of?


Thanks Alot.

Do a google search on the part number...I saw Allspeed and Horizon show them in stock. I think Speedtech was out of stock.

Part #: TAM49346

$200, sounds about right, still pretty good value.
Going on current US prices, say $90 for chassis, $15 for top deck, $25 dollars for both dmapler stays. It'll be the bulkheads that might be costly, say another $90. Thats well over $250 on single items.

Then again, for me it ain't too much, given the current exchange rate (about $1.7 to the pound at the mo). Price still won't put me off though

Also, look at the cost of the Yok LCG conversion for the SD, $240!

Actually, your probably right Ballsie. Then again, I really don't know, I don't watch the exchange rates too often.
And your deffiently right, the events of thursday were terrible... don't think theres anything else I can say

49346 415 LW conversion is kind hard to get now. you can get 53794 TB02/TA04 LW conversion, plus you will need "at least" 4 46mm swing shaft. Some other shim/screw/turnbuckle might be needed but those are easy to get.

Conversion set is way cheaper than buy parts seperately.

From the limited info. I would guess that a diff or one-way would be fastest in those conditions.

We never use oneways out here. Its either diff or spool, well know one here in florida that I know has a 415.

roberto diff is always slower its just easier to drive. oneway is the fastest in stock and 19 but u cant use breaks at all really hard to drive. spool is good because it is easy to drive and u have rip out of the corners

IMO.

if your track is more flowing/the corners are more flowing a spool would be awesome.

if you have tight layouts with 180s, ect a diff or oneway might be better.

setting up your car for a oneway can sometimes be tough and if i don't have time to figure it out i just throw in the front diff. if you hit the board a lot also a oneway or spool will always cause more damage.
