Stainless steel is actually a little softer than carbon steel in general, but it depends on the grade used too. All steel screws are harder than the titanium and aluminium types, titanium harder than aluminium (again depends on the alloy in use).

Use a better quality driver. Like a Losi 2mm driver.

Default Better Wrenches

If you can get a set of the RD Logic's wrenches you will not have too many more problems rounding out the hex heads. These wrenches fit so tight you have to wiggle them into the opening of the bolt!

Doesn't look llike it yet. Its not listed on Tamiya website, and thats usually the first place we see things before they come out.

Does it have a 7 digit part # in the TA05R Book, or a 5 digit part #?

Default TA05 and AMB transponders?

Hey, Anybody figure out a way to mount a transponder to the chassis? The transponder mount is for the rechargable models, not the hard-wired model.

Not sure if they fixed this problem in the R package.

Jeff

Hey guys, would anyone happen to remember seeing a post about some aerodynamic drag data on Tamiya's bodies? I seem to remember seeing something about a comparison of them(& I mean only Tamiya shells, for TCS racing), but I can't remember where & the Search functions aren't turning up much either.....

There should be enough room to servo tape the personal transponder to the top of the servo or onto the chassis.
