Hello all,

I have some questions about
Tamiya F-150 race truck I just finished
to build yesterday.

Kit's tires didn't come with Inner Foams
Is there any problem with running without
inner forms?

Original pinion gear is 17t but I use Paradox so I changed to 18t.
How high teeth can I go with Paradox and original spur?

Any Alminium Damper you recommend?
I think I'm gonna buy DuraTrax
Competition Shocks.
Which length fit to F-150 ? 3" or 4"?

Does HPI MT Mesh Wheels at top of the page below fit to Tamiya F-150? http://www.hpiracing.com/wheels-t.htm
Which combination should I get?
"4 x Rear MT Mesh Wheels" or
"2 x Rear MT Mesh Wheels and 2 x Front MT Mesh Wheels"??

Have you ever seen "Tamiya 4WD Rally Car Skid Guard Set(Item No. 53143)"??
Is this cool thing to search hard? I
couldn't find it at LHSs.

How do you think about "Tamiya Touring & Rally Car Hollow Carbon Gear Shaft Set
(Item No.53164)". Is it tough enough for
off-roading that transmit to car very
hard shock? I've heard that carbon
shafts are lighter but weak soon to be cracked.

Any big difference between original servosaver and Tamiya high torque saver?
