Just clearing and sorting the post-build spares and odds-and-ends from my DF03 build and found I still had part MD4, the Spur Gear Bushing In the kit manual, it goes in during step 6. But because I used a slipper clutch, I didn't use MD4 as it's not shown on the slipper instructions. Is that 100% right? Looking at it, it looks like MD4 sits inside the gearbox plate and helps the gear shaft 'sit' securely. And that it would still be needed with the slipper, because that gap in the gearbox plate is still there? Or does the tension of the slipper spring do the same job, removing the need for MD4? Would appreciate anyone who's previously completed the slipper option giving me a 'yay' or 'nay' on MD4! Cheers, Matt
I'm trying to upgrade the attachment points for my GF-01 and as far as I can tell the 3x14mm step screws are unique to Tamiya. I did manage to find the side-grade component (OP-1409 Tamiya 54409 3x14mm Low Friction Step Screw). In a move that is fairly baffling, they have molded the 3.78mm in to the chassis components - requiring a bushing/bearing/flange/eyelet/adapter (call it what you will) to keep a standard M3 screw held firmly. The more common 4mm (id 3mm, od 4mm) are too big for the molded holes. I know these components must exist: I see them in some of the member builds and I see them in GPM and other manufacturer ads on ebay and aliexpress. But I can't seem to find them anywhere. My goto location (McMaster) doesn't carry that non-standard size. Does anyone know a good source for the 3.78mm adapters needed for mount 3mm through rods (or screws) in place of the existing 3x14mm step screws? Flanged/flangeless it not particularly important to me. Any info is appreciated, pictures attached of the screws, usage example, and screenshot of mystical flanged bearings in the wild.
