I'm looking to run the TCS race in Memphis this year but have no idea which tires to run. Usually I use CS27's, but since you have to have Tamiya tires... thats out of the question. So what Tamiya tire gives the closest "feel" to CS's?

Bs felt the closest to CS-27s.. but they're not available anymore. The next best thing is the Tamiya B3s.

Also depends the type of track your running on and conditions.
Best advise is to check the back of the Tamiya tire boxes for the best slection and results.

my take on this is that you could flip the plates and just renew the balls when they get notchy

Yea my converted R looks pretty much the same.

I like that new body scheme. I wish I waited for that. I just had 2 EBRO bodies come in.

Default Confirmation?

Can someone please confirm that if you use this:


(RC TA05 Alum Center Plate - Blue - Item #49440)

along with this:

(RC TA05 LW Carbon Lower Deck - Item #53893)

the "sparks" and fried servo issue will be resolved?

Yea I've been running that setup myself. No static problems.

That center aluminum adds a few more grams compared to the carbon version.

The carbon chassis eliminates all chances of a problem, and gives the obvious advantages. But running a jumper wire fixes the static problem too, but looks ghetto.
