Was just wondering if it's possible to get any spares? I can't find any online and rc champ haven't replied?

The only plus side is the car was fast! Was is the right word to be used in that sentence

Any help would be great?

i was in attendance with Micheal at the meeting the above happened. Was actually in the same race and the crack it made on impact was huge. It was a hb413 that hit it.. What annoyed me was how the guy flipped at him, his car was undamaged and this tamiya 503 was bent like this! What a gorgeous car though, kinda wish it was my 22-4 that hit it, least it wouldn't have done so much damage as it would have shed wishbones!

My 503 with Proline Phantom B44.2 bodyshell and LMR 'Avior' wing.

I had to mount the side sections of the undertray as close as possible to the battery holders to get it to fit under the body (which is ~10mm narrower than the standard full undertray). I have also fitted a JConcepts protective film sheet on the chassis to at least try and keep it in good condition. Just the rest of the electrics to fit and it's ready to go.

Thank you,
In the manual they are listed as 'ballast weight', with part # 19402762

I don't know if that is for a pair or individually though.

I agree! That's car written off! With that much damage I'd be wondering what else is slightly out of square! With all that aluminium bent, you need a jig to press it all back into place again! But you then have the issue of those parts being weakened or containing micro fractures.

Those parts will be weakended and those canīt be the only parts !
And even if you can press it all "back" you īre lucky if the car will run straight again with them in it.

Have any of you found new things for setup? I just tried it on clay and it has very little turn in and quite a lot of rotation when throttling out. I took out the 2x25g weights and it didnt change much. Also went down in front diff oil so its rear 3k front 6k.. i was thinking how to simply have more turn in without adding oversteer for turn out.. Maybe soften the front somehow or change link positions? its just the front feels a bit passive or not enough weight transfer or something like that. You need to brake it sideways or just hit the throttle early to make it turn tight.

Other than that, it was a blast to drive.. Man those gear diffs really make it accelerate..

I also fitted "optimized" diff covers in the rear from my oldie 501.. The rear pulley collects all the gunk (the track was a bit damp still)

Guys we all should keep an eye on the TRF blog were the tamiya team driver are already playing around with the 503 setup .
For carpet setups I think we all have to help each other.
Here is the link http://www.teamtrf.com/index.php/drivers/blogs

I have a few set ups for clay I have been messing around with..here is a basic rundown of the set up
Front spring Blue
Rear spring Red
Diff oil F 7K
Diff oil R 3K
Front shock oil 35
Rear shock oil 27.5
12* front hub
0* rear hub
Rear 1.4mm stabilizer
1mm rear shock limiter
2mm front shock limiter
20mm front ride height
21mm rear ride height
Front camber link on outer hole ( shorter link ) 2mm spacer under ball stud
Rear camber link on inner hole ( kit set up ) 2mm spacer under ball stud
The biggest difference in turn in I found was on the body that was used.. The 511 body is very neutral and "safe" the Proline TRF502x bulldog was very different and had much more turn in but the rear became kind of sketchy .... I have yet to mess around with different wings but that might have a effect on it a little bit... Also for tire selection I was using Proline MC IONs up front and Proline MC Protons n the rear with closed cell inserts F&R...

Try this out and see if it works for you.. Or change it around and let us know what worked for you

Have you tried the 10deg front hubs? I think since the 503 has more built in kick up than the 511

Sure... I tried the 10* but I switched outer to the 12* front hub and have done more testing with the 12*... I might try the 10* next week when I have more time at the track
