Ey fred, where's your source for the tech racing hopups? Did that guy selling at the for sale forum push through with his offer to import? I doubt if tamiya releases an upperdeck anytime soon unless they bring a pro or r version within the coming months.

Here's the hard stuff..

53579 TA04 Hard Front Upright
53428 Hard Rear Upright (TA04)
53427 Hard Suspension Arm (TA04)
53472 TA04 Toe-In Rear Upright

Hmmm. The C hubs are actually part of the F tree, haven't found any in hard material, just these:

50985 C-Hub Carriers (F-Parts) (4 degree caster)
53458 TA04 Racing Hub Carrier Set (6)

The second has a little more caster, and I'm still not sure about the material. I figure being "Racing" they'd be harder... otherwise, all we have is the F parts tree...

Hey guys,

I am chomping at the bit-a bit-here. My cars late in coming so I can only ask questions.

The stock hingepin blocks on the car-are they equivalent to evoIII/Iv blocks or are they narrower or have built in kick-up in front? Maybe different roll center?

Please advise. Need t know if I need ot go shopping again

Also-whats wrong with running the stock blocks? Lack of bling?

Thanks in advance,
Ray

Ray,

here you go.

1. The stock hingepin blocks on the car-are they equivalent to evoIII/Iv blocks or are they narrower or have built in kick-up in front? -- the bridge blocks are like the 415 "A" Blocks.. front/front block is same as an "A" block. im not sure about the rear/rear block. no they are not narrower and no they no kick up. roll center is the same

IF you use evoIII/415/IV blocks.. you need to buy suspension balls to go on the hinge pins. since the stock blocks are plastic, they just insert in without using the suspension balls.

2. Also-whats wrong with running the stock blocks? Lack of bling? -- nothing is wrong but knowing you..like i know me.. you'll put the bling on there. on a serious note, the different blocks is a good tuning option for this car.

car is really good on asphalt btw

Hey guys, I'm actually thinking of giving the TA05 a try to go along side my JRX-S. What kinda stuff are you guys adding to them to bring them up to race spec? I'm not big on adding a bunch of unneccesary alloy parts, so if it isn't absolutely needed, I usually don't add it on.

Upgrading to the TRF shocks seems like the first step, so what else is needed?

Oh, and when is the full TRF version expected to be out?

Thanks

Darkseid

Well, the REAL needs are the CVD's and the ballraces for the steering, otherwise the rest are just realy fine tuning.
