Looking superb Mark.....
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..!

Default Steering install & Front Diff.

So steering was completely stripped and cleaned, came up like new. A lot easier than cleaning 1990/91 white nylon parts.. 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..
