Following the introduction of new adjustable suspension mounts for the TRF419 touring car Tamiya have announced the release of more optionals for the TRF range of cars. First up are aluminium 3 degrees and 2 degrees rear uprights. The parts allow to apply wheel toe-in on the outer part of the suspension rather than using the arms and inner suspension mounts, which will free up the car in certain track conditions. In addition the strong alloy construction will improve overall rigidity. The uprights come as pairs and they fit the TRF418 and “reversible” suspension components.
Next up are the TRF-SSBB aluminium upper damper caps for the use with the already announced #1871 plastics and the new larger diameter 5.8mm short pillow suspension balls. Combining the parts will enhance shock performance while also offering a wider setup range. The shock caps are machined from high-quality aluminium and they come blue anodised and in a set of four. Last but not least comes an 8-piece set of 5.8mm upper and lower shock mounting balls. The steel parts are precision machined for best possible fit in the #1871 plastics and they feature a low-friction surface treatment. An inner 2.5mm hex allows for quick and easy shock mounting.
