If your getting it next week, should be ideal for Wrexham the week after, time to test it at Ashby to get a feel for it too. Definately wouldnt mind a closer look at these, and im sure Karla will be tempted by these too.
Always nice to see new things being tried and tested, evolution is the way forward, especially when its a Tamiya evolution i guess

Left a message for Karl on this, (Morning Karl ) didnt catch a price for it though.
Alloy + Bling + Tamiya = "HOW MUCH!!!"

Tamiya "DJ" Pro-Module Rear Suspension System

Now available from Tamiya America, Inc. is a new concept in suspension design, the Pro-Module Rear Suspension system for the 415MS and Evolution IV chassis kits. Item # 1004

The Pro-Module Rear Suspension incorporates the upper link and wheel hub as part of the dampening system as apposed to a conventional design. This effectively creates a linkage system (cantilever) with no additional moving parts. The result is a reactive and exponential dampening geometry to enhance control and drivability. Both the arms and hubs are machined aluminum finished with a bold anodized plating. Hubs feature 0 deg. of toe.


System Contents
1002 Pro-Module Suspension Arm 2pc
1003 Pro-Module Suspension Hub 2pc
N/A Spring (Red) 2pc
9805611 5 X 9mm Ball Connector 2pc
53533 3 X 16mm Titanium Screw 4pc
9805894 10mm Spacer 4pc
9804153 5.5 X 2mm Spacer 2pc
9804152 5.5 X 3mm Spacer 2pc




looks preety good to me...by wat they say there it should handle better....it deffenatly brings the bling
i recon that is awesome! i wonder if it fits my xray 04?

Hi guys,

yes, the DJ suspension kit went very fast (20 units over night). We have another 20 or so unit coming in next week and due to the popularity we've seen from the first batch, we are now taking pre-orders for the next batch. So if you're interested in getting one, we highly suggest putting in a pre-order

Interesting concept, anybody know how to calculate the wheel rate of such a set-up?

easy, it's 1 (roughly though as you have to consider camber change as changing the stiffness, so it'll be lower than 1, but still very close I believe).

What i meant is that the motion ratio is 1, or very close to 1.

ahhh. I see where 1 would be accurate for equal and parallel links but I was trying to come up with an equation for the motion ratio when the links aren't. Thanks.

Well in that case, i can't be bothered to calculate it. It may prove hardly significant as the motion ratio will anyway be very close to 1 and the wheel rate's equation has it raised to the power 2, which makes any change even less significant (in terms of numbers i mean, maybe not on the track).

It would be a good exercize for those into that type of thing due to the fact that there are some leverages involved.

There should be more available after the Reedy Race. Some of the units were allocated to TRF drivers around the world, and to the media (magazines) so we were shorted some quantities. But more should be available after Reedy
