hi, i'm a starter so please be kind


ok, so i'm getting an IFS in the coming weeks and was wondering what are the pros and cons of the IFS over the regular TA05 or any chassis with upright shock mounting positions for that matter aside from being able to use shells with lower bonnets. i'm thinking about it's handling differences, if there's any.


thanks!

I run both but can't feel any difference between the two.

The combination of the ifs front weight distribution (shocks in front of axel vs way behind) with the low slung bodies do make a difference. But if you use those protoform bodies, it doesn't really matter.

I got the front one way drive from a TRF 415, can i use it on the IFS?

Didn't come with the manual, can someone share how to install the one way to the IFS. The bearing seems too big to hold the one way unit, are there any additional parts that is required for installation?

Thanks

Shadowless, I don't think you can use the TRF415 one-way, the TA-05 one-way is offset to one side and the TRF415 is more centered so if you use it will just chew up the front belt.

The front end feels more responsive. Think of it as a shopping cart. If you have a six pack way in front vs putting it about a foot back. Which one will be easier to turn?

People will say about the extra weight that the pushrod assembly will give, but if you think about the weight you lose from the shock tower assembly, it's not that bad. Someone actually weighed all the parts, and the difference was less than 10g.

It really is a good car. At 17.5/13.5 levels, it gets me in the A-main with the carbon chassis guys. They come to me asking "That's a plastic car?"

Yeah, the antenna wire is bundled. Its lightly zip tied right on top of the reciever. Its just a covered up by the other wires, but its there. With the Futaba FASST system, I could bundle the whole thing and not have anything sticking up, and STILL not glitch, but I'm still a little old school, so I have to keep just a little nub of an antenna.

This is what I learned from my years with the TA05, so I assume the same will hold true with the IFS.
I've been getting good results using the upgraded chassis and white springs in front and yellow in the rear with no stabilizer bars on asphalt with rubber tires. It's a prepped, cleaned and traction compounded track that has great traction. The tire of choice are RP36 or Sorex 38.

It's not too stiff and hangs nicely with the CF cars using 13.5 or 4.5 motors and a front spool.

- F-part = 51293 (trust me, its not the same)
- C-part = 51296 (trust me, its not the same either)
- 3x9.5 step screw, comes in a pair = 9805840
- rocker nut, comes in a pair = 9808126, can be replaced with aluminium rocker nut = 53992
- aluminium rocker arm set (for bling, cos you get real good and stiff rocker arms with 53991) = 53993
- carbon rear shock tower = 53994 (also for bling)
- LW reversible arms (your choice, hard/soft/short/long) and corresponding axles (ta05R owners already have these arms).
- E-part = 51298 (ta05R owners already have this)
- 2 3x0.7 aluminium spacer (from wherever, you can get this in a pack of spacers or singly)
- 2 28mm turnbuckles
- 2 4.6x4.7 flange tube (for the steering knuckles) = 51100
- 2 4.5x3.5 flange tube (for the steering knuckles) = 9808021
- 2 5x8 ball connector
(for the steering knuckles) = 53969

slap them together and you will have a TA05 IFS!

good luck!

-alexander

p.s. dunt bother with the alloy steering hubs as you will spend a minor fortune on replacement bearings... non of the parts you listed are neccesary, only the ones in my list.

Hi guys,

Sorry to bring out this old post for the standard 05 to IFS conversion.

I have 2 questions:

1. Can I use 2 3x32mm turnbuckles instead of the 28mm? (Read the IFS-R manual and they are using the 32mm)

2. The IFS-R is using 54031 for the F parts and 51332 for the C parts. Which should I follow? The part numbers as suggested by foampervert or the manual?

Please enlighten. Many thanks.
