Still a lot to do Alan. I will be held up for a while until the other parts and hop-ups come from Hong Kong, Japan and Germany.

Plus I have the body to paint as well.

Next up will be the New Shocks to build............

Default Battery Posts & Straps !!

Got a little time on the TRF 511 today.

I fitted the Battery screw down posts and Carbon Fibre battery straps. New screws and blue washers fitted also.....

New Chrome and Blue TRF stickers fitted to the straps...

I do have the TRF 502 Lipo cradles but they wont be fitted as I wont be running it......

The battery posts are a perfect match for the Tamiya TRF Blue....

Default Shock Build !!

Shocks went together again fantastic. Forgot how good these shocks were/are.

To be honest, I've never used the Tamiya Shock Oil that comes in the kits. But, I thought, I would use it for this build, as the TRF511 wont be drove by me and good enough for the shelf.... and to be honest I'm shocked !! at how good it feels.

The shocks have been built to kit spec, and how the shocks show in the instructions.

Pictures show rod guides fitted to the shock cartridges and shock bodies.

TRF Gold shafts with pistons fitted.

Default Shock Build !!

Up next,

Shock orings and spacers. All covered in that nice yellow Tamiya TRF shock oil.

Oil placed all over the orings, in the cartridges, bodies and shafts as not to snag any of the orings....

Default Shock Build !!

On to,

The New shock caps require drilling to allow the tops to vent oils. Why Tamiya didn't do this is beyond me. Oh well, no hard ship. All caps drilled in the inside centre, New screws in place ready....
