I think I might JUST have to buy some, and maybe even make a 'shelf queen' as I just don't know if they are up to the rigours of indoor carpet racing.

If I were to make a shelf queen, Id rather have all aluminum parts rather than clear, so at least if i drive it around it doesn't get destroyed. The clear shocks are cool though.

Man seeing your car makes me what to open up my blue parts and hook them up. Well at least you can see if something is going wrong. I doubt they would just crack under normal pressure from racing. You should install the blue belts hehe. Get all blue stuff. I have the blue steering arms and that large black piece covers them completely. BOOO!!!

With the clear shocks and tamiya oil there is no disguising your weights (unless you add food coloring to throw people off) hmmm let the mental games begin.

Either those shocks are clear blue or he's using blue shock oil. You can also screw with people by adding food colouring to clear shock oil.

Should have upgraded the screws to the blue tamiya ones also. I got my 3X10's and they look sweet.

Does adding food colouring change the viscosity at all of the oil... tis a thought as I like to use Schumacher oil.

My 3Racing chassis is nearly finished, tis sweet.

Run associated clear shock oil and nobody will know what weight oil you are running in those clear shock bodies.

by the way, for 3 racing chassis may i know how do you route the ESC wire? (from ESC to receiver). I encountered problem since it has to go above the motor and I don't prefer this. any other way?

Yes.... I plan on it.... all blue.... CFRP (Flaps), ballcup (RPM), the rest is big T... but that will cost me another fortune....

The transparent part is quite good .... but I don;t dare to race it... Just for my shelf queen, ...
I have another TA05 to race (not for TCS, but stock 23T class).

You're right but not cool . ..... and see also the white springs ... actually they are not all white (tamiya hard) .... they're mixed up of all color (red to white tamiya spring).

Hehe ... 60 works on not (so) smooth track ....
I've come to know how to set them from some Japanese racer .... they even use 80 .... The key is on how you set the damper and your car...

Btw, it's only for my shelf queen...
