I can see many of the owners are selling their cars so interesting..
In a pinch you could use the Xray T3 knuckles, caster blocks and rear uprights.

Tamiya spool outdrives fit.
Not sure of hinge pins

Tamiya Hing Pins and Susp Shafts will fit :-)
I use the Nitride Coated (these gold ones)
Also all Tamiya Damper Parts will fit (M0-3)
And Tamiya Driveshafts fit.

Tamiya Rear Diff outputs don't fit, they are just a bit to wide.

Best Regards

Robert

Looks like there is always new upgradeable parts for this car. So looks like investing into this car is a bottomless pit. The price is not too far from T3 and looks like with all the upgrades, it will cost more than T3.

So how ? Buy or Don't buy ???

3 racing is no different to other companies except they issue upgrade parts rather than releasing a new car. XRAY issue new cars every year so hardly any different

Do you think it's cheaper to buy upgrade parts or to buy a new car every year? Of course selling off the old one ?

Sorry if I sound odd but I'm a newbie.

Tks

For me it's always better to buy new kit end of the year if you take this hobby serious

Well and actually since this is their first touring car we don't know that really. Right now they are putting out hop up parts to fill the requests that many people have. But we do not yet know if they will do a whole new car in the years to come.

I'm only afraid coz I've been having this TA05 2 yrs and have been buying hop ups non stop even until now. If added the cost it's about the 416 price. I don't want to go down the same road again.

I am running the sakura in its kit form with non of the up grade parts and getting on with it well you dont need the parts but they are there if you want to give them a try. The same goes for all cars over the period of a year new parts come out
