So what was he final verdict on the Ta05 pulley mod. Can someone list what is needed. The center pulley is 16 teeth regardless so i would think you would just need the pulleys and then adjust the belt tension. Does anybody think we will see the steering,chassis,topdeck from TITC anytime soon? The chassis is about the only thing left from my original 415 and it is getting kind of tired looking. Sound like we may finally get a carpet track in SoCal so hopefully the 4mm chasssis will be drilled or the new parts

xenon sux dogs balls. the sticky part of the tape comes off the plastic bit when peeling off the reel. also doesnt stick the best either.

go with 3M, they aint the biggest and the best in office products and sticky stuff for no reason. also its half the price and 3M aint the cheapest going around, so goes to show how expensive the xenon stuff is!

To be honest, I hope Tamiya does a little more fine-tuning of that new steering set-up before releasing it.

To me it appears to be a "quick fix" when the real solution is staring them in the face.

There is enough clearance between the belt and the upper deck for them to place an X-Ray/Cyclone style steering bellcrank in there - without resorting to making us buy a new chassis.

There are already similar designs to what I'm talking about on the Top Scythe and an option part for the Kawada Sigma. Even Tamiya have a similar part themselves for their F1 car.

Basically, you have very short steering posts (in their current position) and bolted to the top of these is a little carbon plate which moves the single bellcrank back, and to the centre. The centre post of this new bellcrank simply extends to the upper deck and is screwed down (this would need a new upper deck, alternatively, a secondary upper plate could bolt in the original post holes in the upper deck).

If I can get my hands on the required X-Ray or Cyclone bits I'll have a go at making this up myself

Well im sorry, they just happen to say discontinued on the Tamiya website.. PLus i was looking for a Part Number, and all I could find is a Order number, which will do me no good in a hobby shop in Japan.

Anyone know the aprt number to the little black plastic pieces that fit onto the end of the bulkheads to hold the stabilizers/sway bars

Sushi Man-

If I were you I'd forget getting the standard 415 roll-bar mounts and get the ones for the Evo4 or the HB Cyclone.

The standard roll-bar mounts allow the roll bars to move too much in the mounts, rendering them useless (unless you're running very thick bars )

Speaking of roll bars, can anyone tell me a part number for the front roll bar kit. I have found the rear set but can't seem to find the part number for the front set. Is it the same as a previous option ie: Evo4?
