I used 46 all around on my IFS-R and had no problems at all. The stock IFS-R turnbuckles are pretty short from the manual.

are the spacings wrong for the buckles. b/c our issue is the camber links being long.

So you want to change your ifs to a regular 05? Why?

Everytime I get out, sedan just keeps pulling me back in.

I'm in on the IFS party now, should be seeing my IFS-R by the end of the week or early next week.

back to our regularly scheduled prgm. is interesting to see that the IFS car was 35g lighter than the standard 05R. both cars were outfitted nearly identical, but the scales didnt lie. also didnt lie when they were both still quite chunky (nimh) vs the min weight.

Do you mean the 05IFSR is 35g lighter than a 05R? That's interesting...

On another note, are the rear shock towers any different between them? The carbon parts seem to have different part numbers...

They are different. The ifs version angles down at the ends. it lowers the body mounts.

yes a 05IFSR was 35g lighter than the standard 05R. IFSR was outta the box, both cars had spools, both cars had 4600s, 13.5 BLs and same radio kit. both had standard issue bodies (no LWs).

Does the IFS-R come with all the parts for the normal uprights? This is what I've heard, but haven't found a confirmation.
