diff outdrives, can be upgraded to the precision plastic, or to aluminum.. Turn buckles, can be a better steel unit, Titanium, or aluminum. The reason I don't like the kit units, is they are very hard to adjust you have to use pliers, with the Ti ot alum tamiya makes a turnbuckle wrench.

Also any suggested gearing on a Novak SS13.5 Stock Brushless on the standard spur?

Suggested hop ups? Have settled on Lightweight Suspension set, have the TRF Dampers and Lightweight Screw Set and Aramid Belts, and am looking towards a front one way and alloy outdrives for the rear. Anything else going to help me?
have you tried a 21 pinion with the stock 70 spur.. or 20? i think that would be okay.. 70/21 is 7.5 and 70/20 is 7.8.. just my opinion..

Like to see what people have in the way of carpet foam setups? As has been stated here, not much out there to look at!

We're running 4300 Brushless/LiPo/Foam Touring here. Two guys running them and fast but both are slightly different setups. Just like to see what others are doing.

Maybe someone has a setup from the Novak Race??

Thanks Much!

No idea how the 3Racing chassis would be like, but I have long time ago upgraded my TA05 chassis to the Tamiya Lightweight Carbon Reinforced Chassis and it is good in my opinion (apart from the Car's overall weight being right at the limits). The Chassis provides a sharper overall response to my TA05. I particularly liked the TA05 for its good weight transfers.
Had I earlier bought an aftermarket Graphite Chassis (Xenon / Kawada) for my TA05, I would not have bought a 415MRE.

Anyone know where to get blue aluminum 46mm swing shafts? I checked all over Tamiya's website, all they had were black and/or 48mm swing shafts. Also, are the Tamiya universals (53847) made out of steel? I recall one of you folks saying to run aluminum cvds in the rear and steel in the front.

53724 is the 46mm LW (blue aluminum) swing shaft
51094 is the 46mm (steel) swing shaft
53836 is the 48mm (steel) swing shaft
53871 is the 48mm LW (blue aluminum) swing shaft

for the axle, 51094 is steel, 53718 is Titanium, and 53939 is Aluminum.
What people are saying is they run aluminum swing shafts in the rear, and steel up front.
53847 is made of all steel componants. (51094 [steel], 53500, and 51092 [steel])
hope that answers those questions.
if you want a lightweight axle you need to build it with parts, pick a axle, pick a swing shaft, and use 53500 cross joints.

Alum diff roll much more freely, even more freely than high prec plastic one. I got instant laptime reduced after install Alum diff. I would say it's a must for racing...

Alum swing on rear and stell swing on front is for safty as crash kill alum swing. So if you don't crash, go full Alum front/rear is fine. Ti axle is for weight saving, and it save a LOT of weight from TA05, also make the roll freely as less weight to roll, but costy.

Same here...

And I'm still using mine. They've spread a little, but amazingly enough, the universals(and dog bones before those) have grooved them very, very little. To the point where you hardly even notice.

Yep, I've used them lots of times, although if your looking for a "Tamiya" blue...they are a little dark.
