For $2.50 per screw. Also, machine thread so if you try to use them AFTER using the self tapping screws you're not doing yourself a lot of favors.

This is the thing I like least about tamiya. The base kits come with self tapping screws, and then most upgrade parts are machine threads. Which you then screw into ruined holes. :-/

You need to run a 3mm screw through and put a nut at the bottom. Tamiya sells a brass flanged tubs you can put in it. Not sure of the number. The Type-SR has a set of flanged tubes with a 3mm screw but I don't see any part numbers.

You can use some spacers for the rear body posts. Then you have to screw them with M3x18 screws. This is shown on page 19 of the manual.

Default Low cost steering upgrade

I use this setup for my steering.
Tamiya bushings #50593
2 lock nuts
2 3mm x 35mm bolt. Get the ones with treads only going about half way up so the bushings don't get chewed up. Run your screw through the chassis before you start, and blow out any debris. I used the spare steering bridge that comes with the car kit. Press 2 bushings into it from the bottom. Press 1 bushing into each steering arm from the top, and washer between steering arm and chassis. Slide screw through everything with little grease for bushings. Screw it into chassis, pushing nut tight into bottom of chassis as you turn screw into it.
Don't over tighten. Make sure arms turn freely.
This won't be as good as a ball bearing setup, but much better then stock



.

Looking to pick up a motor/ESC combo for bashing.

I had a 17.5T HW combo that was a little slow for my liking with 2S.

Should I go down to a 10.5T motor?

Are you running stock gearing? Does bashing = parking lot? 17.5 is a decent motor upgrade over stock.

I have a large range of gearing options.

Yes, mainly parking lot bashing and up and down my road.

17.5T was just underwhelming

With the speed tuned gear set, you can run a 63t spur (#51609) over the 70t stock one

Then a 13.5 or 10.5 is a great option to get more speed out of it

Best tires for bashing that'll actually last? I know that's probably an oxymoron, but worth a shot

My tire of choice for street bashing is the HPI X-pattern tires as they are 26mm and fit the TT-02 kit included 26mm rims. The belted version is the better choice, if you can find them.
