I would think the new stiff chassis (the Tamiya one) and the Tech upper deck would be the hot ticket for carpet...at least with foams. If I were running rubber I would go with the either the stock or new chassis (TAMIYA CARBON TUB VERSION) and no upper deck.

I had a pair installed on the front. It seems to work fine, just had to remove the red foam spacers. Haven't tried it on the rears though.

Part# used: 53871

I was at Steve's yesterday and saw the XR-05 he is working on in his case. As far as the way it looks you would never guess it was not Tamiya's flagship. Although i would be getting the car for TCS so i can put all the really cool stuff on it!

Btw, I'm not looking for the upgrade parts like the Lightweight susp. kit, just the normal usual replacement parts. Thanks in advance!
Can use the same lightweight suspension as the TB-02 and TA-04 i think. There is a set on ebay

ZacMan777 I've had the same problem - in one case I even knocked a steering turnbuckle set off completely and had to look for it on the track. Is there an aftermarket tie rod end that has a tighter fit or perhaps another brand?

you can try to change the ball cup to the open ones like the ones for the shocks. And change the ball end to the other type where you can screw it from the top, use countersunk screw, this will prevent it from coming off.
sorry i can't explain it properly, hope you can understand...

well... pictures worth thousand words.....

Thanks Dodo, I get the idea and will give it a go. I also appreciate the effort you put into your reply.

Cheers,

Hi guys,

When you guys say "turnbuckle falling off" I'm assuming they are popping off the ball studs? If so, you might want to look into replacing the kit black nylon ball cups with the low friction ones. The materials are different, and the low friction ones are stiffer than the stock nylon black ones as well. Also, while replacing the ball ends, you might want to look into the FL coated ball studs. The stock ones are steel I believe, and for about $6 you can save a lot of weight, gain even smoother suspension movement with the FL coated ball studs. Personally, I only popped off the turnbuckle on the steering a couple of times, and one of them is when I slammed full speed into the driverstand at Tamiya (it was one of them layout with a chicane right before you get on the straight . And yes, it was one of those that was felt by everyone on the driverstand )

yea, i think i've popped it also maybe once or twice but not so often and barely a problem for me.
the trick i posted was from last time when i used a kyosho tf-2 and it popped out most of the time so i just had to do that.

well... i succeeded for the first try, but failed on the second try, now i have to use small c-clip on one side, it clears the slot on the engine mount nicely.
