It doesn't really stick to the outdrive. It sticks to the pulley and sort of just covers the outdrive. I agree, those stickers work very well to keep diffs from getting gritty.

Default Tasmiya Shocks

Guys ,
I nedd some helpo mounting my TRf shocks on my Yokomo. I have the TRF "black shocks," But i dont know what size ball stud they use.

Secondly Is this Tamiya part the correct ball stud that has a 3 mm thread all the way through?

Thanks for you help

Simon

Tamiya ball connectors/nuts for shock mounting are 5mm.

Your link shows a 3Racing part. It should be threaded 3mm but...

I have been caught out in the past through buying third party parts for Tamiya, now I only buy parts identified by Tamiya part numbers.

HTH

Tamiya's 5mm is the same as the other Japanese manufacturer's 4.8mm.

If you want a ball with a 3mm hole in the middle try Kawada #AJ4802N, I am using these to mount my shocks and am very pleased, better fit than the Tamiya ball and do not wear when you remove the shocks.

do the ball cups on the car ever get any easier to pop off as the car gets older? i was trying to get off the shocks from the ball studs and they are hard as sh!t to get off! i had to pry them off with a flat head screw driver and managed to scratch the ball stud a little.

I would like to know as well. My local track is free flowing with a few hairpin and "S" turns. The back strait is very long and the track is slippery do to no grip.

My TA-05 keeps oversteering on power. I have already soften the shocks in the front and the rear by moving them in toward the middle. I will be trying softer springs next.

Any other tips would be great.

thanks

Using zero degree rear uprights and more toe in at the hinge pins will give more traction at the rear wheels.
