Thanks that's what I was thinking, and yes it is same as the EVO 6.

Most of the Tamiya BLUE is for show and we all know it but sometimes it's easier to work with aluminum parts instead of plastic.

Slight clarification. The TB03 aluminium mount was a direct replacement of the plastic one that comes with the TB04 kit. If you have built the kit you see that you are required to use stand offs in front and rear (big spacers) to keep the shock angles linear. The new mount, pushes the towers out, so that you will not need the stand offs.

That's how I meant it.

BTW, will using part number 84317 combined with short springs on the TB04? If yes, how will it affect overall performance?

Tiko,

That mount moves the shock tower about 2mm away from the bulkhead, so you can get to the inner camber link much easier.

What dampers do you currently have? Plastic?

I currently have the low profile dampers. But would like to use the TB04 low profile dampers on another car. Should I just buy the same kind of dampers that came with my TB04 pro 2?

I don't know if they sell the low profile dampers as a set. I would keep them on the TB04, since they are designed to have the correct ride height for this chassis.

What's your other chassis?

The TA06 with low profile damper stay. Yes I'll just follow your advice. I'll keep them on my chassis.

I stand corrected by myself. The low profile dampers are now available separately. The part number is 42273.

I've been fighting with my ProII for weeks now and for the life of me I can't get this thing to track straight. I've put it on the set up board a half dozen times and still the same results. I had the same issue when I had it set up for USGT/GT3 and its the same with my current VTA setup.

I'm running about 1 degree toe out. I have another servo I'm going to try next, but I really don't think that's the issue. I currently running the hi torque server saver, but I might just try a regular horn also. My Xray T4 '14 tracks straight as an arrow, but it definitely has a lot less slop than the TB-04. Do I just need to shim the ProII out more?
