Here is how it works. (lets ignore the '1' for now, and assume your car has 0 degree uprights fitted).

Everything is referenced to the A suspension mount. This is the standard width suspension mount is most of the current Tamiya cars (TA05, Evo's, 415's and TB02's).

Any suspension mount with a 'x' at the start is smaller in width than A.
think of it this way
A = 0
x = negative numbers.

so as ttso said perfectly correct earlier they narrowest suspension mount is XD and they get progressively wider as you go to E.
eg XD, XC, XB, XA, X, A, B, C, D, E

What does this mean:
If your car is fitted with standard, probably plastic parts for TA05, then you will have;
A front and A rear = 0 degree toe in
change now to
A front and B rear = 0.5 degree toe in
A front and C rear = 0.5 degree toe in
XA front and A rear = 0.5 degree toe in and slightly narrower track.

So you can change suspension mounts to adjust the "track" (or width) and also the toe-in.

All the '1' means is they are 1mm lower than the standard (non '1') suspension mounts.

so if you want to set "kick-up" of "anti-squat" you can actually use a mixture of the '1' and standard mounts.

Dont forget when setting toe, many cars have toe-in built into the rear hub carriers.

For example;
TA05 on Rear
1 Degree hub carrier, T53685 1A bridge suspension mount front and 1B on rear. Which gives standard kit width with 1.5 degrees rear toe-in.
EvoIV on Rear
1 degree hub carrier, X front mount and C rear mount. Which gives 2.5 degrees rear toe

Hope this helps



Great write up!

I was holding back from buying suspension mounts due to not knowing what the x's and 1's meant. Your write-up made it uber clear. One quick question though - I recall reading that if you flip the X mounts, it'll eliminate the need to buy bridged mounts. Doesn't this raise/lower the height, affecting the "kick-up or anti-squat" you were talking about?

Hi Gerok,
Example: The 1XA Flipped can be used as a bridge, you will need to add 3mm spacers between the chassis and the 1XA Sus Block (which comes together in the new package) to equal the height of a 1XA in normal position, therefore no effect to heights and anti-squat/kick ups.
To add anti-squat etc, just add more spacers in addition to the 3mm (in the flipped around position) or use the Tamiya Alum Sus Mount Spacer #53932.

Just seems no one has a Carpet Setup for Foam???..

The car is already pretty solid as standard, but I guess there is no harm in buying alloy outdrives for the differentials and TRF shocks for better suspension control.

Ballrace the steering too, there are 4 bearings in total to the steering arms.

Remember though, the more alloy you add to the car the more it will weigh, and although alloy wont break, it can bend

CVD's will make it bullit proof (almost), alloy rear suspension blocks make the only other weak part of the car strong. Everything else is just there to make it faster.

53724 is the 46mm LW (blue aluminum) swing shaft
Can anyone confirm this to be the correct part # for the blue aluminum 46mm swing shafts. I've seen a conflicting number. Also I'm having trouble finding a part number for the stock foam bumper. Does anyone know it? Is the 415 bumper a direct fit?

Oops! A search of this thread found that the bumper is the same as the Evo 4 which is part #51088. Still unsure of the blue 46mm swing arms though.
