Front one way it is. I always thought you should buy both one ways all the time.

some will disagree but i think that centre and front one-ways complement each other, and you should get both for asphalt, less important on carpet.
the centre oneway give you off power steering while the front oneway gives more on-power steering. depending on setup and track conditions, the front oneway alone could do it all. the fact that many centre oneways tend to break (1way bearing locks up) makes it a point of failure anyway.

my two cents.

Updated pics of the Porsche on Tamiya's site. Wish they could have put some wide wheels out back as the narrow ones look wrong on the car.

Should be gold plastic with chrome plating on the rim.. 5mm offset too.. heh.. likely just for the porsche and its protruding wheels, making it look like it has wider treads.

They should have went to foams..

Are there a differences in springs weights and lengths between the trf springs, #53630-'33, and the tuned hard springs that are included in the set #53440.
Thanks

The TRF springs are much shorter, around 2/3 of the length.. I think the red and yellows are relatively the same force, but the blue and whites are stronger per inch than their on-road counterparts..

I use them a lot for my TA05 and Mini to reduce ride height.. sometimes those on-roads are a bit too long to get below 6mm..

Also don't forget 53635 and 36, Super and Ultra-hard..

Thanks for the information. I just got mine put on and it looks great. I'll get her dialed in and see how it works Tuesday.

This is how I would rank them.
If you change to the Graphite towers you will like using the short springs more.

53636 - Purple [Hardest]
53635 - Grey
53633 - Short White
53632 - Short Blue
53631 - Short Yellow
53440 - White
53440 - Blue
53440 - Yellow = 53630 - Short Red
53440 - Red [Softest]

Each spring is useful depending on track conditions.

Hi guys, I just got a TA-05 kit. I'm looking to run it on an indoor carpet track. I have a question about foam tires. I'm sure its posted somewhere, but I read through about 15 pages and didnt find what I was looking for.

Anyways, will 28mm tires fit this car, or will there be a rub issue? Thanks for any info.
