Missing Tamiya Steering Parts

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have some steering parts that I want to use on my Blitzer Stadium but I don't have the aluminium mount (see pictures). If you know the number or code of this part (to fix the arms at the chassis) please comment.

It will be really appreciated.

Tks

Which kit number is this steering assembly from ?

Checked the manual for Stadium Blitzer kit 58482 and it does not look anything like the parts in your pictures.

I have no idea. 😊 I have those from spare parts bought long time ago.

Have a search for @kontemax blitzer beetle topic. He did a ackerman steering coversion in his RC.

Hi Collin,

By Ackerman conversion do you mean reverse the uprights. If it's the case, I have already done that. By the way, the uprights were too close to the front arms. So I modified the upright supports (see picture). Removed some plastic and and spacers (3× M3 0.5mm).

Hi mates,

I was planning to do onto the Blitzer Beetle but I took my break before.
I already did it on the Hot Shot 2 (Rat Shot) on the Egress and on the Wild Dagger:

Incredible! I modified the Ackerman angle on the Egress with a custom steering carbon plate and I forgot to make the pictures and post them in the thread... Ridiculous!

Hi Max,

Thank you for all the information. I need to find a carbon sheet to create the link between the 2 arms and also to fin a way to fix the arms to the chassis. 

I also want to replace some homemade aliminium parts by carbon parts. So the carbon sheet will be useful.

To find the right parts, some measurements might come in handy, ball bearing size and height/thickness of the ballbearing stacked parts. And how high does the parts have to be from the chassis plate.

The top force steering mount could fit as well as other parts from Tamiya. (Egress, Avante....)

Hi Waterbok, 

Avante or Egress bushing (5 × 4 mm - see picture) could work but the high is 12mm. I could manage one at bottom and one at the top with something between those two bushings.

I looked at some manuals but didn't these steering arms.

Will figure out. Pictures show what I hope to achieve.
