Can you give me links for some good setups? Do you have setup Marc Rheinard from EC 2005 from last week? I know that he was using MSX.

Please give me links for good on-line shops with spare parts and aftermarket parts for Tamiya.

Thank you in advance.
Suspension blocks are a good idea. Get a range, pretty much so you can run the same blocks front and rear.
A couple of other parts to look at;

World Champs Part kit: Contains locked pulley, Alloy rear hubs (a very useful option to stop you destroying the small 950 bearings), and the narrower X-series blocks
Tamiya Spool; Another useful tuning option.. the tamiya one is the best I have used yet.
Springs; Pretty obvious, you might as well get a range (Tamiyas on-road set is what I use)

I have a Titanium Racing Spool for the 415, it looks a lot more sturdy than the tamiya one but I've not run it yet - I'll report back when I do!

I think the world champ set is a limited edition hopup part. Maybe you could try some online website like Speedtechrc.com or rainbow10.

My best bet is with rainbow 10 though.

Thank you.

Can you tell me how to buy at www.rainbowten.co.jp?


Sorry for my stupid questions but i'm new in Tamiya. I don't know where to buy parts.

Can you tell why people use XA XB XC XD blocks? And why i have in parts D bridge block? Stock blocks aren't good enough?

Email R10 on their enquires email address. They are very helpful and quick and speak/write very good English. I usually use PayPal to pay them, but there are other ways of doing it as well.

Dont use Rainbowten they are expensive when compaired to www.RC-champ.co.jp They are a fair bit cheaper than RB10. Email them and then they will tell you how much the part is then you paypal them the money.

Well, when ordering overseas, service is hit and miss. Rainbowten has never let me down, and I know alot of others that always have had great service from R10. You may pay a bit extra in your eyes, but the parts arriving at my house in close the same timeframe as ordering from within the states is worth it to me.

Tempted,

51104 is the part # for the lwt arms. You get fronts and rear in the same pack.

Thanks Jonny. I've ordered myself some spare arms along with some other common bits.

I'd be gutted if I got caught short in the field so to speak!

Can't wait for it all to turn up now *rubs hands together*

If RC Champ made some effort to have an English parts page like R10, then I might be interested.
