Hey guys, I picked up the carbon batt.retainer today and found out that the blue standoffs are way to tall for side x side cells. Luckily,my buddy had a couple of corally giants o-rings that worked perfectly. What have you guys done to make this work properly.

On another note, I've come to the conclusion that this car loves the chassis roll. I've gone throuhg many set-up changes and shock oils (stock shocks) limiting chassis roll,but the car loves the roll. I was however, able to find a set-up that doesn't use sway bars,but still performs very well.

Anyone know the part # for the tamiya grey springs, or if they are even made anymore?? Thanks for the info guys--Al

vege_B, go buy the TRF pistons, 3 hole and 2 hole is the simplest tuning mod, and then springs.

Carbon Battery Brace, not to sure, I know on the kit retainers, they sit on a plastice spacer, is that the same for the blue ones?

You could try them, or even the better thing would be to see if the TRF piston guides would fit in the CVA shocks (they come with the seal kit).

Guys, I just sprayed up the Subaru 2.0 shell Tamiya do, and it comes with two wings, anyone know which give more rearend grip?

If you have the traction, run sway bars. It makes the car transition quicker and causes less wear on the tires.

A good non-sway bar setup is:
Ball Diff up front: Yellow Springs in Front, Blue in the Rear.
With One-Way: Blue Springs in the Front, Yellow in the Rear.

The tech @ Tamiya told me that the TRF piston is smaller than the CVA pistons and too much oil will pass thru and may not have good results in the CVA. The flourine shafts work, but expensive.

according to the TA05 guide book, it is 0.1mm bigger diameter but has much larger piston holes....

Default Titanium Screws

Hi Guys,

I would like to check what have you guys used as replacement for the screws that comes with the carbon shock tower ? The ones that hold the retainer for the shocks .

The other screw is for the servo retainer. The one that closer to the side where you have to screw from the bottom of the chasis.

My question is replace or remain ? If replace, with what kind of ti screw ?

Any help is much apprecaited.

Tks.
