Any standard spur fits. Use two screws and a dab of thread lock.

If you want to run 17.5 or less, buy a 72 tooth spur or smaller if you can find it.

That's one option, or you can grind the inner radius out on the stock plastic one, takes about thirty seconds with a Dremel, can't tell once installed.

Raced the car last night in RCGT / GT10 class. Traction was pretty poor, at times it felt like a drift class. Car was great, very balanced. I played a little with rear settings, switched from D to E block, placed 1mm shim under blocks... I noticed minor changes at beginning of race, but once traction compound wore off.. Was hard to tell.

Overall very pleased with the car. Had a couple of mishaps, no broken parts!

Default servo mounts

Does anyone know about aluminum servo mounts for a TB04 ProII? I stripped one of my plastic servo mounts and I would like to replace them with some blue ones. Thanks

Check the TRF418 manual on TamiyaUSA for the part number. Should have it

Does th TB04 Pro use the same suspension mount bars as TRF418? I just changed the a-arms and wondering if can I can change the aluminum suspension mounts too.

I'm using the ones from RM01 when combined with direct servo horn (futaba in my case).

I have installed and tested the dcj shafts, I am very happy with them.

im having a bit of trouble getting even steering throw. The left is 34deg and the right is 31deg. What angle do people normally use for their touring cars? Should I set steering throw both at 30 then use other tuning options to help it rotate better?

Default worked like a charm

I have been having issues during my build regarding the transmission output shaft binding and the top cases not sitting right on my TB04pro II build. Basically the same ones already mentioned earlier in this thread by others.

It seems all of it is due to poor top case plastics not fitting right on the thinner of the two 10mm bearings on the output shafts. A touch of a grind with my dremel and everything is dare I say... 'free'. I hardly removed any material, but it made a world of difference.

Raced the Pro II again in RCGT. Traction was much improved this time around. Car felt really consistent which says a lot because I am not so consistent as a driver. It took a good wack in the second heat, popped off front right shock.. amazed I did not break anything.. the softer plastic on the arms helps a lot.

The transmission has broken itself in and is feeling pretty freed up at the moment. Still running stock kits gears (non re-enforced) No problems thus far.

I'm guessing you're running without a servo-saver. With a fender'd body, I don't understand with benefits of using one, but I'm new road cars. Is skipping the servo-saver standard or recommended practice? Thanks.
