So Diff went in like a dream. Why Tamiya stopped making the TRF stuff is beyond me. Its just a work of art and the bling factor, well !! its just that TRF Blue against the carbon.... Stunning, Just Stunning.......:)

I have some spare bearings etc - they're used but shout if they'd help - will do a reasonable price on eBay - I splashed out 50 on Acer ceramics you see - may have a latshaft new too - that's for the chap thinking of doing one up...

Hi JamieStewart,

Looking superb Mark...:thumbsup:..
I agree about TRF, but Tamiya seem to want to concentrate on mass market , plastic, kits.... I guess that's where the money is though......how many TRFs would they sell compared to,say, Lunchboxes..!

xfactor 31-03-2018 07:47 PM

Steering install & Front Diff.
 
10 Attachment(s)
So steering was completely stripped and cleaned, came up like new. A lot easier than cleaning 1990/91 white nylon parts..:D I went with the standard plastic linkage rather than the Tamiya blue alloy. Steering nice and free. Diff went in like a dream.

Again top bulkhead fitted just to keep diff in, while awaiting Tamiya Shock Tower..
