Like the suspension arm spacers, camber link spacers and etc. With them available then I will be able to better evaluate the setup given up by the factory as I have been driving the IFS with long arms and find it quite nice to drive already. But am a little interested to find out if the short arms would make it a better car like the 416 is with short arms.

Also thanks for the tips on building the car. Will take note on when I convert mine to 37/18 pulley.

Thanks for the tips and sorry for the trouble I caused you.
Sorry for the wait. I tried my best to get everything on there. If you have anymore questions, feel free to ask. I'm going to be racing this car tomorrow, so I'll give a report after.

Is there any other way of ensuring the diff ring stays put to the plastic outdrives? The outdrives itself has already the slot for D rings(or doubleD), i'm not sure what suggest tamiya to provide us with the round rings in this case. Or is there any other diff ring which is suitable that we overlooked?

I just got my IFS-R last tuesday and spent three night to put everything together.

So far, I only have few options in my car: light weight chasis and carbon shock tower. But I will put more later.Is anyone have any suggestion about IFS's hop-up?

I would check your suspension blocks, from the photo it looks like you have excessive rear toe-in and front toe-out.

Ditch the Tamiya connector for a Deans. Get the spring set and perhaps the hop up spring retainers. Get a front one-way and a spool.

Just bought a TA05 IFS-R today. The manual seems to indicate that the Pinion Gear is available seperately? Is it true? The stock spur is 107T right? What's the current best Pinion/spur ratio for better aaceleration? I'm putting in 18T Team Orion motor, Futaba MC330CR ESC, Futaba R203HP digital servo and Futaba S9551 servo.

Thanks in advance for replies.

Sorry. Are TA05 parts compatible with TA05 IFS-R models?

Start at a 6 to 6.5 FDR and adjust accordingly from there.

Thanks so far. Anyone has any chart for the Pinion/Spur?

Can anyone confirm if the IFS-R chassis package has any stock pinion?

As a rule Tamiya doesn't include any pinions in their "R" race kits. They do not know what motor the user will be using so they leave that decision to the user, same as with the tires.

Figure out the FDR with this equation: (# of teeth on the spur gear/ # of teeth on the pinion) * transmission interal ratio = Final Drive Ratio

Example: 105T spur and 40T pinion in a TA05 with an IR of 2.25 is (105/40)*2.25=5.90

Remember that the spur gear Tamiya includes is not 64 pitch but .6 module. You can replace it with a 64 pitch spur so you can have many more options of gears to choose from.

Ran it this weekend, and the car is awesome. Beat a lot of high-end cars overall. Turns in very well (used ebbro350 body), and planted. Try it out of the box stock first.
As for the diff rings slipping, scuffing the ring and outdrives helped, and no slippage has occured.

The internal is the same as the 416 now(2.055).

Best bang for your buck imo.

-So you did not use glue on these rings,only sanded them?

Glad to read that the car is performing OK.

Thanks for your suggestion. I definitely get a front one-way. Is that necessary to get center one-way as well?

My front block are 0.5 degree toe-out and rear one are 3 degree toe-in. Is that okay for TA05 IFS? Also, I have a set of springs and I put yellow in the front and red in the rear. Beside that, I also bought a set of stabilize bar I forgot to mentioned in my previous mail. But I left the original one (front -medium and rear - soft) for now.

About the battery connector, usually, I don't use Tamiya connector. The car was built for Tamiya Asia Cup, and we will get 3 packs of 2400 stick batteries for the racing. I am too lazy to replace dean connectors for batteries in the racing day.
