Hi guys,

we were wondering were we can find a TBU/IR reciever compatible with tamiya units?  from my understanding it seems like we will require these.

so, any ideas?

The most simple way is to look on eBay.

Or you can try here: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXWU14

You do not need Tamiya TBU for your tank. The Heng Long will do quite well for your application. As a matter of fact most of the tanks will have them in the box. we can discuss further if you need to.

I was under the impression that the CANAM used the tamiya system. from my reading  i was under teh impression that the 2 were not compatible. ie the henglong reciever would not recieve IR signals from Tamiya emitters tamiya.  ie tamiya and HL systems were incompatible due uing different pulse widths etc

does the clark board address this issue?

Steve,
The Clark boards are compatible with Tamiya, they give and take hits and hit every requirement laid down in official rules.
It is not the reciever that is important, it just passes a signal with some code in it. The electronic board that generates that code is what is important.
Now that being said the Heng Long recievers are at a disadvantage when it comes to tamiya apples because they don't have the 45 deg defence, meaning the tamiya apples at a distance of 10' or less can be hit at any angle, beyond 10' the apple needs to be hit at a 90 deg angle to register a hit.
Heng Long apples register a hit at any angle at any distance.
I can show you how to put the 45 deg defence on your heng long apples if desired but it will have a 45 deg defence all the time. 
There is lots of things you can do but my recomendation is to stay with the Heng Long apple and if desired move to the Impact apple as it is less expensive but basicly the same quality as Tamiya.
I stock the plug in cabnles that go toi the board so all you need is the apple itself.
Here is the Impact one  http://mitosal.com/73003.htm 
I don't know much about the SLU apple so I won't comment on it. As an fyi, you can make anybodies apple work with the Clark board.

I used a Tamiya apple because I got lucky and someone offered me a spare one they had, but they do pop up for sale from time to time. They're tough, and I use just the 1 on all my tanks separately. The 5-pin connector from Clark is directly plug and play and easy to set up with the Impact / Tamiya apples. 

As Curtis said it's all about the control board, the apple is just an IR sensor. SLU apple's won't easily work with other systems but they are all generally "Tamiya" compatible, EXCEPT stock Heng-Long systems. With a Clark board, both Tamiya / Impact and HL receivers will work. 

If you want to use the more readily available Heng Long receiver, there is a fairly thorough step by step on the Clark website as to how to set them up!!
