im gonna have to try that diff idea

what is TAOB? here is the definition from our old website:

"The term "TAOB" was coined by one of our original members, Amiel Molina. In the beginning, it sounded ridiculous, and moreover, an obvious mockery of what happens during our practices and early races. "TAOB" is a tagalog word which translates to "flip" in the English language, and that's exactly what everyone was experiencing with their newly built cars. As a matter of fact, R/Cing for many of us became a little bit expensive than what was initially expected. With so many broken parts to repair or replace, and 90% of the group classified as rookies, the "TAOB" word eventually was accepted as a symbol for our group.

And, thus, born a new team whose ideology is not so much on winning, but to be as a group having fun even if all else fails. "TAOB" also was a perfect choice for our team because of its English counterpart, "flip", which can also be used to define our identity. "Flip" is recognized as a slang for "Filipinos", our ethnic background. TAOB Racing Team... proud to be an "almost" (we do have Kevin, Max, Igor and many others on our team) all Filipino team... "

the rear diff already has some play.. which is normal from what i hear about belt driven cars..

now will the front NEED to be shimmed? is the play a normal amount? or too much?

The front diff doesnt need to be shimmed there is a little play in it as in the back diff . the tamiya might be different

I decided not to run it on carpet since carpet season is up in 2 weeks... and my TCS is in 2 weeks. So time is more wisely spent on asphalt setups than carpet. Plus I'd rather run a diff on carpet than oneways. Especially how our indoor track is designed. Best to leave my 1/12th for carpet.

As for the rear hub OP687, it's just another tuning option that I'd prefer to use over the current hub. It allows me to go with less toe (easier) for certain tracks. I could just change the rear D Block to something else. But I'd rather keep the D Block and mess with the front block. Plus it's more like my SD. blah blah blah...

I like the front diff idea. I'll have to mess with it after the TCS at RCO. If they let me race the car.... Plus I gotta wait for my spare parts to come in before I build one.

Duel billing for Pro4 and 415 winner takes all!

What about your 415? will it be getting some track action?

Just built my 415. Got a lot of spacers over. Are Tamiya generous or have I missed something?
