On-Road Part Suggestions...

We were wondering if anyone here was interested in giving us some cool ideas for touring car parts.

What is something that no one makes that you wish you could buy? What is something that you find many racers in your area doing to their cars that you wish was publicly available? What concept parts would you like to see in the touring car world? What material would you like them to be made from? What features should they include? What should they fit? What would you change? We are interested in expanding our line of parts to the on-road world...this is why we need input from many different on-road racers.

There are multiple ways you can let us know what you want. You can either go to www.TeamPlatinumRacing.com/Contact.html and send us an email, you could go to www.PlatinumRacing.ProBoards79.com and post in the "Concepts" thread, or you can reply here. All three options are good and will better help us understand what the TC world is looking for as far as aftermarket upgrades and accesories go.

How about shock towers? Aluminum rally conversion items? Heat conducting aluminum battery straps? Extra beefy drag links? Anything that you wish was stronger, cooler, or different!

What exactly do they do? Are they a mod that offers more tuning options or do they alter roll center? What are they made from?

Not really, and in all honesty, the aftermarket market for that car has been molested. You really are unique if you DIDN'T make parts for that car. One thing I would like to see is beefier shock towers for the Pro4, especially low-rise for the front. I would also say super tough knuckles, but those have been made. Maybe titanium hingpins for the Pro4?

XRAY FK 05 bulkheads that don't require the removal of the bulkhead to access the diff.

How about a rally conversion for the T1FK05?
Aluminum Shock Towers, Longer shock bodies (to coincide with Losi or AE springs) Longer Arms, Outdrives and turnbuckles. ( I guess you could just pick up lunsford buckles)
Some sort or undercarriage to prevent dirt from coming up.
I would definitely get a project going with that available.
With the car already made for 48 pitch, it would be perfect.

It's that time again! Anyone got any good ideas?

Anyone have any more ideas?

What's with the T1FK05? Any other ideas? They aren't very popular around here, so what kinds of other things would racers want to improve on?

Thanks guys!!!!

I agree with Josh regarding the titanium hingepins. I would also like to suggest for aluminum bulk head (number 3 & 4 of part # 73511) for the Pro4.

Where do you race on-road? I know that you have been to RC Excitement for off-road trophy races, but I don't think that I have seen you on the carpet yet. The FK05 is a very popular kit here in Fitchbrg. Everyone that hasn't switched to the T2 is pretty much racing the 04 or 05.

I'd do some research on the JRXS, as that front camber mod seems to be very popular among the Losi contingency.
