TRF419X Notes

We got to see the first official picture of the upcoming TRF419X Chassis Kit today. But what can be seen from this one picture?

– Short big bore dampers

These were mentioned in the TRF419X presentation text I published March 14th as newly designed Super Short Oil Dampers. As you can see from the picture, the top and bottom caps are black, the springs are short (20mm?) and it appears that the TRF Ball Nuts are now included (42231 Ball Nuts for TRF Dampers (4pcs.)). We’ll have to wait for more detail.

The use of some black alu parts is somewhat of a surprise, although this was also done one some previous TRF buggy kits for example. It would appear that the alu spacers used on the car are also black anodised.

– Lower damper towers

Looking very much like the damper stays on the cars used by the TRF drivers, they are mounted with 2 countersunk screws and 2 normal round head screws.

– New upper arm mounts

These are a bit of a surprise as they have not been seen, or mentioned, until now. They look to be black anodised alu parts, screwed into the bulkheads from the side, making them infinitely adjustable. Obviously this feature has been on some other recent cars, most notably the HB Pro 5.

– Roll bar mounting

It would appear this is still the same as on the TRF419, which one could say is a little bit dissappointing considering what’s on offer from other manufacturers. At least the one-piece Stabilizer Stoppers are now included. It also appears that the fluorine coated rollbar pieces are included. The rear rollbar type is still the one introduced on the 418, so on the production car they have not gone back to the older (more fiddly) way of mounting it to the arm, like the factory drivers have been running.

– Servo mount

The servo mount is now officially a multi-piece alu/carbon thing, as opposed to the one-piece alu parts employed on TRF cars so far. Better?
That’s about it for now I think. What we can comment on from this one picture released.

There are obviously some more new things already mentioned in the product information released previously, but which can not be seen in this picture.  These include:

– New suspension arms (see previous post today on new parts)
– New rear uprights (see previous post today on new parts)
– 05G front suspension mount 
– Motor mount
– Bulkheads
– Battery holders
– Front and center ballast weights 

Hopefully we get a chance to see these sooner rather then later… 😉
