TA04 TRF Special Chasis Kit Question

Hey Guys,


Im about to get a TA04 TRF Chasis, and I just a quick question or 3 regarding some of the stock/standard parts that come with the TA04 TRF.

Does the TA04 TRF Special Chasis Kit come with the Hard Front Uprights TA-53579?
Also, is it the 2 Degree Rear Hard Upright that comes as stock/standard on the rear? If not, is it just the Hard Rear Upright or is it just the normal black plastic.




Also, does the TRF come with ALU Wheel Hubs?
Would it be considered a downgrade if I got the Blue ALU Wheel Hubs (4mm) ta-53570??




Also, does this come standard on the TRF Chasis aswell?
Tamiya TA04 Blue Aluminum Ball Bearing Steering Set TA 53612




Thanks for any replies.

according to the tamiya site:
"Toe Angle-F/R: adjustable/5 or 6deg "

5 or 6 degree rear uprights? NO IDEAA!!

it comes with alloy wheel hubs, but not blue ones. they are exactly the same other then the coloring

it does not come with the alloy streeing set as seen here:

Default Hi

Hi

Question 1 the answer is Yes

Question 2: It comes with the silver ones, for me it should comes in the blue ones as this is the TRF colour, so by changing to the blue ones, you should be hopping up.

Question 3 the answer is no

Hope that this helps.

2. Actually the silver hex's are wider than the blue ones so you would be narrowing the cars track if you fitted the blue ones. Rick

Yea...the Silver ones are 6mm and the Blue ones are 4mm right?

So I get the Blue ones still? More tunning options? What does reducing/increasing the car's track do?

Thanks for the replies

A wider wheelbase will give the car more stability. This is mostly used on highspeed tracks. Sp the narrow wheelsbase is less stable but better to handle on technical tracks.

You can also use wheels with +2 mm offset which will even wider the car.

personally, i don't 'feel' the difference
