I have heard from others, this car feels well with an associated 70 up front, and 60 in the rear.
Although these are approximates. Try this out, and see how it runs.

I can only think of 3 items I would like to see for the car,

1. caster blocks in 2 and 6 deg.
2. additional sway bars
3. additional rear toe blocks

not sure if this has been asked, but how is the car on foam tires?? Is it "foam friendly"?? some of the chassis' have issues with the wider foam tires (i.e., Tamiya 414, 04, EvoIII series) so you need to use spacers to get the wheels from rubbing on the camber links...

so has anyone tried running foams with the car??

Tamiya's old suspension has no problem with foam tires. You may have to buy the aluminum rear hubs which is recommended anyway.

I have mounted Jaco 28mm's and the front wheels are close to the camber links. But they will not rub with those wheels.
As far as parma's or GQ's I haven't tried them yet.

not sure which one you are refering too, but I know that 28mm tires will rub against the camber links on the 414/04-style suspension - even when using the 6mm clamping hubs....

I've been running tamiya's 04/414 suspension since the 04R came out...and every foam tire I've run rubbed to a certain degree - and I've used spacers as well...

I never made any modifications on my 414,415,evo3 with the old suspension to mount foams on. EJ Evans is a local tamiya driver. By the way his original 415 is dialed. He use's the original suspension with it. No modifications needed to run foams.

Bojar your not using the caster blocks where the plastic sticks up really high on the top? Those caster blocks usually came with the plastic ta04 car kits.

can use spacers on front but if you do middle hole on a arm then bring in the tops to 2nd from outside the car will handle the foams better. with so much traction you also need to stand up rear shocks as well. one in on a arm then 1 or 2 in on tops. 50= oil is needed with at least 23lb fronts aned 17lb rears to start off with then go from there as everyone drives diffrent then everyone has own setup. good luck

Anyone know if this company has plans on making a car with the Tamiya 415/ X-Ray FK05 chassis layout. If they could deliver this newer chassis design for a price even close to this 707R it would be a steal, not that this car isn't a steal, but I think they would probably sell a grundle if it had the newer chassis layout for a price under $300. Too bad the 707R didn't come out about two years ago for this price, it would have put this company on the map! Nice looking car for the price though, looks like it would be fairly easy to do maintenace on as well with the easy axcess diffs. Curious to know if most of the Tamiya car and 04 X-Ray parts would fit, allowing the use of Tamiyas DJ Pro Module rear suspension setup for instance, I heard this can be used on the older 414 cars even though it was made for the 415.

I was told things are in the works for the chassis and lowering of the spur/re-designing of the rear bulkheads.

So far TA04 front and center one-ways fit. I plan on trying xray spring steel hub axles, as they are much stronger, and seem like a good fit.
