Wow, need to shorten them wires!!

Yeah I know but the plan is to pull it out and move it between cars and I don't want to have to solder and unsolder and then resolder etc.

Can you find an "in-between" size that works for both cars you are swapping? Not saying that the current length is going to hurt anything, but it is usually neater to have shorter wires.

But this is just an aesthetic thing, in my opinion.

I haven't worked out the next car to swap it into so for the moment I'll live with how it looks and then once I can try it in the next I'll shorten the wires to suit. If I find I never swap it I'll shorten them as well. I do agree it looks a bit messy!
Thanks

Default HELP.... Front Steering and Drive Shaft Problems

Hello everyone...

My son and I both have TA05-ifs' and we are both experiencing the same problem....

On occasion when we clip a barrier, our steering sticks (I think to the right).... (mostly)...

And, we both experience our front "dog-bone" axels popping out...

I would think there is a fix for this....

We bought some CVDs, that were recommended, but they "still" seem to be to short.... and they pop out also....

Can anyone give us a recommendention to fix this problem?

Thank You


Please , any suggestion will help,,,

ThankX

With the least amount of impact on the fron wheels around a corner, we either get the steering servo "locked" to the right, or our front "dog-boine" axles pop out... I would think there is a fix for this....

Please , any suggestion will help,,,

Think you can solve this by putting a little bit of foam/rubber into your outdrives. Leave a little bit of play though.

What size are your CVDs? Are they 46mm or 44mm?

You need to use 46mm CVD's up front especially if you run minimal front camber.

Regarding ESC layout, I personally would rule out option 2 with the solder tabs facing the outside of the chassis - if you took a particularly hard hit these would likely break which is not cool.

I think option 1 is your best bet as your leads are away from the belt. What I would also recommend are a few tips I use; first, rotate the motor can counter-clockwise so that the solder tabs are at 9 o'clock; this is a little dangerous as they could get hit in a crash but they could still get hit at 12 o'clock anyway. This means the distance between your motor tabs and your ESC is longer so your leads dont look so obviously overly long. You could buy a short sensor lead for a few dollars also.

Also, the rear chassis brace is a great spot for mounting your capacitor - if you look closely it has a little slot in it that you can fit a couple of tie wraps through. Place your capacitor onto of the brace and loop the tie wraps through the brace - keeps it secure, out of the way of moving parts and looks hella cool.







Now I have a few IFS questions of my own - I recently bought a TA05-R and now have an IFS that has been gifted to me from a fellow racer. I have reset the IFS to the completely stock setup and have noticed that the rear suspension arms on the IFS are on backwards. I know that this offers "more suspension options" according to the product blurb but what are the advantages and disadvantages in detail please? Put simply, can anyone advise which way around to run the arms and which mounting holes to use on the arms and tower for a track such as this one please (running yellow springs all round)?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, Please tell me where this track is located, It looks pretty awsome!!
Thanks

That would be Broxtowe in the UK, one of my favorite tracks when the Tamiya Eurocup was running

Hey Jeff,

Yeah, Jay_P beat me to it, its Broxtowe in the UK. Went down a week ago for a day of racing but being Britain it was of course a wash-out. At the 2.45 mark, my car is the one in front of the car that the camera is chasing in that video!!!

Can I ask you, what was it like working as part of the US Coast Guard please? I have always yearned to do something that makes the adrenaline flow and provides a service to others, but want to know what the reality is like.

Thanks, and pleased to meet you from the UK!

Hi guys i have been running a IFS for some time now. I have setup the front end as per instruction but I know that there are many adjustments that can be made in the rockers by spacing out the ball studs. What does this do and how does it work? I am after a setup for carpet with foams and wanted to know how the IFS works in this manner.

cheers

Hi all,

Ran my IFS car for the first time last night having only ever used it as a standby car until then. The car felt very loose at the rear when getting on the power out of the corners, and a little vague on the way into the corners - not a lot of initial turn-in and then suddenly the car will either spin mid corner or spin on the way out under power. Running red springs rear and yellows on the front.

I also noticed my rear diff kept tightening itself up - which element of the diff do I need to address to prevent this from happening please?

Would be grateful for any setup tips as I have a big race on Sunday. Cheers!
