Hi all,

I plan to buy the new Lt weight reversible 53899. Is this option part, different from the ltwt reversible for TA04/TB02 ?
I mean the bearing size, etc..

I heard also that I need to buy the swing shaft separately for this new lt weight rev. unit ? Is it true ?

Thanks for the info.

I beleive you will need the 48mm swingshafts with the Lt Wt Susp. Set. If you are running the stock arms then 46mm swingshafts. Others can confirm but I am pretty sure this is correct.

I think I forgot to mention that you need to buy universals for your car also...............
I just weighed my TA05 with the stock suspension and the Graphite chassis and the car is only 5g. over R.O.A.R. legal weight .............

I think it depends on what blocks you use. I'm using some X blocks and the 46mm shafts are perfect with the lighweights. If you use D blocks you may need 48mm's.

Thanks Slot. Ordered them from Speedtech on Friday night and just waiting for confirmation. Ordered the precision diff joints, the uni's and the center diff bushings this go round. As soon as I get the "RC Budget" replenished I will get the rest that you suggested.

Thanks Bane, MikeR and Slotmachine.

I've found this Tamiya Univ 48mm :
53871 RC 48mm LW Rear Swing Shaft alum - blue (for rear)
53836 RC 48mm Swing Shafts - For Assembly Universal Shaft (for front)

Do you mean those 48mm parts ?

MikeR : I have some questions about X block and D block,

1. Is it part of TRF415 ..

2. I plan to use the graphite tube lower deck, do these block fit ?

3. Do you have any Tamiya part number for these blocks ?

4.
Any other blocks avalaible and can be used ? and what degree 'cause I also plan to buy
53807 RC TB-Evo4 Alu Right Upright - 0deg.
or
53784 RC TB-Evo4 Alu Right Upright - 1deg.

5. And are these for both front and rear suspension ?


Thanks for the info.

Thanks for the info.
1. Yes, my blocks are all from the 415. Right now I'm using x, xc,xc,c from front to back with the 46mm bones.
2. Yes, but if you use all really narrow like xd, xc together it seems the arms hits up against the bulkheads- too narrow I guess. This goes for both tub chassis.
3 Speedtech- most are here in stock http://www.speedtechrc.com/store/ebp...?catmainid=269
4. I have been sticking w/ Tamiya only because of rules.
5 Ditto.

Looks like I can go up to A blocks but then I would be exceding the diffs...

what 415 blocks would you use if you wanted to have the same setup as the plastic blocks the kit comes with?
