Thanks.
The original 415MS "Worlds Kit" that came with the 1XA, 1XB.... blocks has all the blocks = degree toe for front and rear.

For regular suspension arms and regular blocks (1A, 1B...) , page 20 from a 415 manual.

For lightweight arms and regular blocks (1A, 1B...), page 20 from a 415MS manual.

For lightweight arms and "X" blocks (1XA, 1XB...) page page 20 from a 415MSX manual.

Some of the manuals list the set-ups based on 1 degree rear hub, some on 0 degree hub so you need to check closely for that.

For your TA05 sway bars, the front and rear use a link connected to a ball nut you screw into the lower A arm. The link is basically two turnbuckle ends trimmed with a 10 or 12mm grub screw between them to make your link from the sway bar to the lower A arm.

Where did you download the manual? This is the only manuals available from tamiya http://tamiya.com/english/rc/manuals.htm

Yup its the A"'s for the mounts. I just got my order of alloy screws from fastener express , Oh boy the difference in weight, I would suggest to anyone to replace those steel screws to a much lighter ones.

Heres what to look for:

-The big holes in the middle of the front suspension arm...these will hold a ball mount that is screwed into place by a screw going through the back of the arm.

-The holes on the front of the rear arms...these will have ball studs screwed into them that will serve as the mounts for the sway bar ends.


So all the sway bar provisions are there, you just have to know how it all mounts to "see" where the stuff actually goes.

Default HOP-UPS?

OK I got one...well I'll be getting one for Christmas, I Picked it up from LHS today ands gave it to the wife to wrap it.

Now the hop-ups ???

1) Does anyone have any Tamiya stuff in stock??
Looking for TRF Shocks
Carbon Damper Stays
Front One Way
Stablizer kit
Center One Way ( Maybe ) - How does it help beyond the front one way?

2) What are the most important hop-ups? Is the order listed above the best order to get things in?

3) I would like to keep it TCS Legal so the 3rd party stuff is out of the question for right now...


Thanks

SpeedtechRC has some of the stuff in stock. But not everything on your list.

Other hopups I would get is the precision diff halves. Also the tuned spring kit for the shocks. If you are gonna keep the stock suspension, I'd get the aluminum rear uprights. These rear hubs are 1degree each where~as the stock plastic ones are 2degree's each I believe. Also another thing(s) to get are the aluminum suspension blocks so that you can adjust your rear toe as well as front. Tamiya also makes a spool if you need that. But it's not here stateside yet.

Mostly just stuff that allows you to tune the car rather than Bling Bling...

Finding the stuff in stock is a matter of timing. When Steve from Speedtech comes here to tell us that he has stuff back in stock...GO THERE IMMEDIATELY!!! Cause the stuff goes fast!

As for the hop ups. I maintain that there aren't any "need" items other than a spring assortment. But if your looking to buy some...


-Spring set: this is at the top, because its a must have for tuning any TC set up and its the only "must have" on my list.
-TRF shocks: for me, this was mainly for the threaded bodies. If the stock plastic shocks were threaded, I wouldn't have upgraded.
-Sway bar set: I like my cars with sway bars when racing outdoors. When racing indoors on carpet, the front sway bars really help take away some of the massive front traction the car has.
-hex hardware: Whether you go with anodized aluminum, stainless steel, or Ti screws, its just nicer to work on the car with hex hardware. And it saves a good bit of weight as well.

I would start with those items, then if your still looking to pimp your ride some more...

-Titanium turnbuckles: Lets face it, the stock turnbuckles suck. The adjustment nut is too small and strips to easily. Remember...stick with Tamiya Ti items if TCS is in your future.
-One ways (front and/or center): this is a preference thing. On carpet, I can't imagine wanting more steering from this car, so I'm holding off on the one ways. For outdoors, I'll likely get a one-way just because I also run one on my nitro car and I don't like to run a one-way in one car and not the other.
-carbon towers: They don't flex as much as the stock units. And they add an extra tuning hole. Other than that, thats it. They don't save much weight over the stock ones though...

Thats how I have/would approach the hop up purchases. It leaves you with a slightly lighter, but still close to stock handling car.

Universal shafts,with the 46mm long shafts front and rear is my #1 item. This will allow the swing shafts to go further down into the stock plastic outdrives(weak-link) which will keep them from getting blown out! Stock dogbones are POOH-POOH!
Then#2 would be the aluminum wheel hubs instead of the plastic ones that come in the kit. This will keep your drivetrain (Wheels) running true without any unnecessary vibration.
Then 3rd item would be the aluminum suspension blocks! This would be the narrower aluminum blocks.Some racers may not agree with me on this but,
narrower suspension will drasticlly improve cornering and would definitely affect the handling and enable you to increase the rear toe to get the rear end planted! This would be my 3 main items to get first!
Just my 2$

Are you sure the TRF shocks has a threaded body??? Is the part number 53571??

Reason for my question is because I see some spacers to adjust spring tension in the pics that I have. Let me know what part number is the right one if I have the wrong number.

Thanks,
Roy
