Exotek are Alu C-Hubs and I don`like them. More steering results from no longer play in the steering

hey Simmi thanks for the idea on the x ray front as I have always disliked the amount of play on the C hub of the TRF cars. I personally own two 418's with the Samix chassis conversion as well as ultra low shock towers to run the new low profile shocks ( running X ray PSS in the car now ) and have actually just completed the conversion using spares from my T4 17.

Are you still running the TRF anti roll bars at the front or have you switched to the x ray bars as well? I switched to the T4 bars which are a tad longer but still works well.

Looking forward to test the car tomorrow!

Hi Simmi!

Quick question: did you change ball joints only to xray (302663#) or the ball conectors/ends as well? Xray 4.9mm, trf 5mm as per manuals. I use titanium version...

Thanks
Marton

@Stein Tumert

I use the XRay ball joints and connectors since the TRF 418.
You can also watch my videos on youtube under "Anders Alsmandenkt"

Default 419X WS

Does anybody have the part# for the XWS-aluminium chassis plate and the new upper deck?

Does not seem that any of the shops have them as spare parts. I hope, Tamiya didn't jump on make-money-train again.

I wouldn't buy a complete new kit only for the aluminium chassis upgrade.

It does not look like it is listed yet as a separate part. However, that is hopefully coming when they release the WS kit....

The Plastic is anymore better than the love toy NO sorry my loveley Tamiya

The wonder.... play is history ...

COME ON TAMIYA

Is the 05G wide front end is only good for high traction ? How well on low traction asphalt ? Thanks.
