Keep in mind that if you use the 3-Racing front one-way, it wont be TCS legal.

53833-Is the part part number for the Tamiya TA05 one-way.

Depends on what your running. If your running rubber tire, not only is the upgrade not worth it, but it may actually hamper your rubber tire setup by making the car too stiff.

If on the other hand, your running foam/carpet, then I would definitely say its worth it.

This is what I learned from my years with the TA05, so I assume the same will hold true with the IFS.

thanks a lot Darkseid...
BTW...if you're running on rubber tires..what upgrade would you recommend that is really worth it...(other than the oneways which depends on the driver)
this is after you installed bearings on the steering and rocker arms..

First, which version are you starting with? If your starting with an IFS-R, you don't need much. They threw nearly everything in it. But here are a few things...

-You may want to consider the front spool. Again, like you said, this is a track/driver preference sort of thing, but still something to consider.

-You could consider bearing for the steering system, but amazingly enough, the steering system is like silk even with bushing. But for some reason, the rocker arms aren't nearly as smooth with the bushings, go figure.

-If you haven't already done it, upgrade to a 64 pitch spur. The included gear, while it will work with 64 pitch kinda, is not true 64 pitch. And the larger your pinion gets, the worse the mesh will get. So you'll have to leave it looser and looser until, bam...a stripped spur. Look to something like RW or PRS spurs, they are THE best in my opinion.

-Low friction V-parts.(Tamiya 53918) The low friction ball ends are already included with the IFS-R, but not the V-parts. Top top ball cup for my shocks were fine, but the bottoms were garbage! Not smooth at all. So I plan to switch to the low friction V-Parts to replace the top and bottom plastic parts on the shocks. I use them on my M03 and they work great.

IF your starting with the IFS-R, thats about all I can think of. Its pretty well loaded out of the box. IF your starting with a standard IFS, let me know and I'll throw together a list of good things to have.

Shoot, then your pretty much set.

Just take a look at the few things I mentioned before, and grab some spares.

Hi all, i need help with gearing.

I will be using 2s2p 25C 5300mAh Li-Pos, mamba max esc, and 5700 motor, and maybe faster one later on. I have the IFS-R version.

I am thinking of the kawada 64p spur/pinions.

What do you think would be good? -i will be driving on track and street, top speed must be good, but with not burnt motor .

105 spur and 43 pinion ? -what speeds should i get with thease, or different gearing?

just to share with u guys. i started with the normal IFS but have since modded it to IFS-R. first of all, ditch the long suspension arm with the 48 mm dogbone. change to the short reversible suspension arm with 46 mm dogbone. better still, if u can change to the trf-416 bigger bearings. the long wheelbase makes the IFS sluggish.

Set-up for asphalt/tar surface:
Droop: 6 front/5 rear
Ride height: 5 for even smooth surface/5.5 or 6 for bumpy surface
Camber: 1.5 for all front & rear tyres
Suspensions: TRF suspension with hard(blue) springs & 400 damper oil for the front & medium(yellow) springs & 300 damper oil for the rear.

I also use front & centre one-way. makes the car easier to handle to enter into corners & turns. just let go your throttle, turn your car and in it goes. but dun use brakes or your car will skid. if you want the car to be stiffer, try to find the tech-racing upper deck and use it. it works wonders to the car.
