The arms are not particularly that brittle. There are many people running with the older arms where I race and I see them break very often and when I used to run it, I used to worry every time I would get near a wall. If anything, I feel that the LW suspension is actually more likely to cope with the hits. I've had some pretty BIG ones in my time and the car has coped with it fine, and that's with Alloy Caster blocks and Uprights too so even more force on the arms then usual. With standard components, the Caster block or front upright will break before the arm does.

I am not a newbie and I have been practicing for couple of years. I have LW reversible suspension on my TB-02 for almost three months and I haven't broke anything yet. I am not the best driver and sometimes I hit the wall and nothing happened. It's does not break as easy as you think of.

Encouraging words guys Might give the reversible arms a try How does it differ from the old suspension? Does it react quicker? I just sold my fk05 cause i think IMHO the tamiya suspension is easier to drive. The evo3 was very tame compared to the xrays.

If you use the stock 415 blocks,then you'll have a very wide track width.That would make the car very very stable.

If you use the narrower blocks,its should come alive.

I don't think anybody (maybe except the Hong Kong T-shirt monster) knows why some did get the T-shirt and some didn't. It seems that the people that bought the kit from Japan got a T-shirt included and the people who bought them elsewhere ( Hong Kong etc.) didn't. I'm glad I bought mine from Japan because they are a nice T-shirt.

I am going to Hong Kong on Monday and I "WILL" find those shirts! If I find where some of them are or on sale, I'll take a picture of it and tell you guys the price. I'll take my laptop with me and post from HK.

Started to add the MSX conversion for my carpet car last night. I purchased the kit from speedtech and my kit included a very nice tee-shirt. Since this is my carpet chassis, the MSX has been added to a 3mm chassis and the standard 415 suspension arms. I have a full set of LWS arms ready to swap out and compare the effects on the track.

Just a few complaints so far...with all the fancy machining on the bulkheads you would think that Tamiya would incorporate some type of Key system between the alum pieces to square the pieces....way too many screws...which are too soft of a metal.

Other than that, I still love my $1 million touring sedan
