Take a look at Post #61 from Boxey, which will answer your question

Default IFS and Universals?

Has anyone upgraded the stock dog bones to universals yet on the IFS?

Any troubles with the upgrade? It seems to have a 3mm gap between the locking hub and the front knuckle? I compared the stock wheel axel and one of the new ones and the pin holes don't match up . It seems the axel collar is shorter on the hop up (part 53499) which puts the pin 3mm away from the bearing?. Anyone have ideas/suggestions?

Thanks

Erm, which axles did you use? If they are the ones from a standard 05, then they will be too long, which is what it looks like.
The standard TA05 suspension is the older style (TRF414, TA04, original 415, Evo3 etc) which uses 1150 sized bearings (iirc). These are spaced further apart in the hubs.

The IFS uses the LWT reversible suspension (standard on the 415MS-MSXX, Evo4 and Evo5, plus the TA05R, MS and IFS) which uses 950 sized bearings and are spaced closer together in the hubs. To use the CV's you'll need to use the LWT reversible axles, TAM51094 Tamiya Evo4 Wheel Axle.
These need to be used on both the front and rear.

Thanks, Ed.

I figured it was something simple like this.

Actualy when I ordered the parts I ordered them as listed in the IFS Manual . (highlighted incase some one from Tamiya is reading)

I guess this is a heads up for you IFS owners.

Not sure what to do now, I could call Tamiya and wait to see what happens, or I can suck it up and just buy another set of axels. Guess If I want to hit the track again soon I better buy


Later,

Later,
Hmm, dunno what IFS manual you have been looking at, but mine clearly identifies the #51094 axle as the one to use (see page 18), as Ed has already confirmed.

The #53499 axle is the original Evo III item for use with 1150 bearings.

hmm, odd indeed, to your question, I've been looking at the manual that came in the box.

Seriously tho, yeah on page 18, listed under the options assemply diagrams.

It clearly states, OP499, 53499 Wheel Axles for Assembly Universal
Shaft set. Also states it's to be used with OP500 and OP836. Diagram
even shows how to assemble them.

In fact, I'd say it's the identical page comes with the stock TA05 Manual.

I'd scan and post it for ya, but I don't feel the need too.

I've already contacted Tamiya Canada, but I'm not sure of their turn around time in regards to communication with them.

The product ID the manual has is RCC TA05-IFS Chassis (11050632). It looks to have been drafted on 0607 based on the copyright.

Very odd indeed,

Just wanted to point something out...the EVO IV & V have different LWT reversible suspension arms. I had both cars and the EVO IV arms are longer than the EVO V.

Correct, and the TA05 and its derivatives use the shorter Evo 5 arm.

The manual downloaded from Tamiya is the same number

I have attached page 18.

I'll check my hardcopy manual when I get home.

What are the copyright numbers on the front of the PDF manual? Should be on the lower left corner? I must have ended up with an early production product manual? I've check it three times now and my copy definely has a typo with regards to the OP number.

Really odd.... Still no responce from the Canadian Tamiya distrubitor either.

Actually, the TA05R, MS and IFS come with the longer version. The only car that comes with the short is the Evo5.
