Interesting changes to the LW Suspension kit coming out..

Alerations to #53794 now allow a lightweight reversible suspension system to be added to the TA05 chassis as well as the TB-02 and TA04. Newly added parts include #53823 Clamp Type Aluminum Wheel Hub (5mm) and #53825 TB Evolution IV 2.6 Stainless Suspension Shaft Set.

The following parts have been removed: #53501, #53502 <42mm front and rear swing shafts>, #51098, #51099 <2.6mm screw pins>.
*Note that swing shaft is not included and must be purchased separately according to the chassis used.

So they dropped the screw pins, and put the regular 2.6mm shafts in.. are they just handier, or is it because the screw pins tapped into the plastic which caused easier breakage?

I know they say that you'd want 48mm swing shafts for this kit, but I have 46mm swings with XD/XC mounts and the regular suspension, and they're literally mashing the half-cut urethane bushings into the diff screw hole, they're so close.. Also, when I was using the regular dogbones, I had to take those rubber o-rings out from the axles, it was so tight..

It still includes bearings and the Evo IV axles, right?

-Blue short (front)/Yellow (rear)

but I wanted to go a little stiffer in the back, so after glancing at the chart, I threw the kit silvers on the back.

So then I ended up with:

-Blue short(front)/Silver(rear)

And the car handled very much to my liking. Now I see that the kit Silvers are actually stiffer than the Blue shorts. Wow...

I've run stiffer in the rear on cars before, particularly on my old Corally's, but didn't think it was something that would work with this car. I plan on trying White short (front)/Blue Short(rear) on my next outing, but I'll definitely keep my 'mistake' setup in mind, especially considering how well it handled for me.
Its good you found this out. We have been running harder rear springs in asphalt nitro for a long time, it works great to get more steering into a car.........

Yes, it comes with the ball bearings.

The black ball cups that come with the car is quite soft. Unless you are very consistant and not hit anything, they will pop off.
Switch to the grey ones(maybe someone can find the part no), they are very strong and smooth. Haven't had one pop off yet and I've been using them since I was using the EVO3.

U need to give out more info on track type, class, etc. before most people will respond. No point in giving wrong setup for wrong conditions.

Just an update:

Since I've picked up this car back in Oct. this car has rarely seen the outside of the A main. In fact, between myself and rcspeedo, this car is usually in tq or fighting for it. This car has been winning a few races over much more expensive competitors.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not bragging so much about the racer than congratulating the car. I just hold the radio.

I do have 1 problem, the car setup works so good, I've gotten lazy and not rebuild the car since it was 1st assembled.
I will have to put some wrench time on it before the TCS.

Not surprising they hit the outdrives, you're running the narrowest blocks. Besides with the LW you need 3/4mm longer dogbones than with the standard suspension so going from 46mm to 48mm they probably won't hit anymore.

Is anyone using the aluminum upright 53687 with their stock suspension? I just got mine yesterday and found that the rear sway bar collars are rubbing the uprights.
