Tamiya never made a spool to fit a TA04, as they only recently got into spools on the 415 and 05. But a 'spiff' works just as well in GT2 and GT3- just tighten that puppy up and you'll be fine. Done properly, it won't permanently damage the diff, either. Just make sure it's correctly lubed and clean inside. And as cheap as TA04 parts are these days, it wouldn't cost much (actually less than buying a spool) to buy a TA04 ball diff setup and, um, "forget" to put any lube in there...

Thanks DOC! you just gave me an idea of what to do with my TA04S

Now, a question for Fred (I hope I made it in time before Fremont). I have a TB01 currently building on the double deck CF gearing towards GT-1. I want to get an aluminum steering kit for it but not one store including Tamiya have it in stock. Can I use its (TB family, ie: TB EVO plastic steering) siblings parts to compensate the unavailable part(s). The reason I put plastic because: (a) I already have it available; and (b) it will give me no advantage (other than the bearing but the owners of the TG10 Aluminum Racing Steering kit usually replaces the bushings with 850 bearings anyway and it was recommended by the Steering kit manual).

Per the posted rules:

"At this time there will be only 3 classes eligible to win the trip for the Tamiya World Championships in 2006. The two definite classes eligible for the Japan trip are GT-1 and GT-2. The third class eligible for the trip will be announced mid way through the 2006 season."

With 5 of 8 regionals completed, and it now being June with Nationals just 2.5 months away, it seems we're due for the announcement. Fred???

I would be happy with just a posted list of the GT-2 "Nationals" eligible bodies so I can paint one up in time.

My answer to that question must have not been good enough for ya. Fred told me last week that Mini was the class that would go.

Kevin you should have asked him last weekend. What I got from the conversation we had was, no Ferrari bodies, and no NSX bodies. Sounded like the Vette would be ok as well as the 350Z

That only makes it more confusing because that would add two seaters in with four seaters. I would have asked Fred but he looked a little busy. Definetly a long week for him.

Default TCS Legal Bodies

Is there a list of bodies that can be used for the TCS races, or are all Tamiya bodies approved for racing?

For regionals, any Tamiya body can be used (except the Subaru Legacy). However, you have to check the rules for wing issues if you are running GT-1, 2 or 3. For Nationals, GT-2 class will run a black can Mabuchi and can not run "sports car" bodies. It's pretty much known that the NSX and Ferrari 360 / 430 will not be allowed. It's just all the other options that are in question.

Default TCS

What are the top 3 body choices for GT1? What about discontinued bodies, can they be used?

Which tires are chosen for the Tamiya track in CA?

Thank you for the help.
