Both steering block is ok. Can have full movement though

It was too bound up so it's more like a TB03 now

Is anyone else blowing through steering knuckles like crazy?


If I'm steering at full lock and knick the apex of the turn even slightly the bottoms of my knuckled break off or strip. I've literally gone through tons of them. I'm not even talking big hits here. I think I'm going to get aluminum knuckles and c hubs.

Switch to the Carbon reinforced version Tamiya part number 54568.

Never get Aluminium on suspension parts. They bend im crashes and also place stress somewhere; where there is plastic. Plastic atleast flexes and gives

Ok. Issue solved. I had the shims of the arms done wrongly. Built it front to back, thus causing the steering linkage to have some binds.

I'm going through the carbon ones too. I have xray steering blocks in there now. They seem to be stronger.

curious on some opinions/setups for this car ..... planning on asphalt, GT2 class for a TCS race

Carbon reinforced chassis or stock plastic one for flex characteristics ??

Shock oils ... 30 -35 - 40 - 45 .... whats the general opinion soft or med/stiff ??

Front Spool or Diff with 300,000 ... 500,000 ... putty ??

Appreciate any and all ideas on this - want to run a TCS race this summer in the GT2 class and some occasional summer runs. Looking for some good general setup ideas for running on the TCS tire and just overall.

Thanks for any input.

I'm running at Tamiya USA my fast lap time 14.7 with the TB04

TB03 Front Spool comes with 39T main gear
Rear gear diff with EVO 5 main Gear 39T
Shock oil I use TLR 40wt and 37.5 rear
Yellow springs on all 4 corners

getting the weight out of the drivetrain is very important for this car get all of the light weight parts for the rear diff and drivetrain.
