Get the ta05R then convert it over to ifs. You'll get all the goodies you need with the 05R and the conversion is simple.

I paid about 19 to convert my TA05 over to IFS, and that was with the hop-up parts

Can someone please give me a straight forward parts list to convert my 05 into an IFS. Part numbers would be appreciated. All I really want to do is to run the 350R body. do I just need to do the front end suspension or rear too?.... thanks!

Default TA05 IF/RS...

hiya IFS brothers!

ima just completed my IF/RS car. lotsa epoxying, dremeling and bolting. let's see if it works.

have fun!

-alexander

p.s. for those of you who are contemplating conversion from your regular TA05 to TA05 IFS, it is important to use all the IFS parts for it to work properly as intended. this includes the front steering knuckles, and c-hub. i realised it was different when i printed out my blank setup sheets. also, the smaller c-hub gives the front lighter un-sprung weight. actually, as far as possible, lighten the suspension as much as you can for greatest effect. (by the way, this is for ta05 iIFS, not my conversion )

I was in doubt if go in TT01, TB02, or TA05 (many versions), reading this thread, I'll go with a TA05 IFS for sure now, someone know the difference between #58389 EBBRO BTEC Maziora 350R and the #58394 Eclipse Advan SC430 bodies, to use outdoor on track ?
track is this
http://www.aarcdoabc.com.br/modules....showpage&pid=3

Start with the TRF aluminum shocks and universals front and rear. Makes life and adjustability much easier.

After that, it depends on what you want to accomplish and what your budget will allow. Carbon parts trees will stiffen the car. Aluminum suspension blocks will increase adjustabilty, and there is plenty of blue bling that just looks good.

hi guys. just wondering a couple of things.

i am about to purchase a TA-05R from tower hobbies (found a $30 off code) and do an ifs conversion on it as i have a couple of good books on suspension setup on (real) cars and know a thing or two from the Formula SAE project at uni.

i was wondering if these 3racing alloy c-hubs are similar to the ifs versions or should i not bother as i'll be getting the 05R chassis?

also, are these products necessary for the conversion?

TA-05IFS C-Parts
TA-05IFS D-Parts
TA-05IFS E-Parts

sorry if i've gone over old ground, just wanting a clarification as i'm fairly interested in how this will go, especially since it's my first foray into r/c

okies,

here is a list of stuff you need to get if you are converting from ta05 to ta05 IFS; exclude all the red items if you own a ta05R cos you already have those parts in your kit.

- N-part = 51294, can be replaced with reinforced N-part = 53991 (you will need to get 4 850 bearings for the rocker arms unless you get 53993 which comes with bearings)
- 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.
