Hey, the IFS has its own thread now! :D

Man, this car is so cool its sick! I wonder if it has enough in common with the standard TA05 that I could convert my already tricked out TA05 to a tricked out TA05IFS. :D

pure speculation here:

ball studs go on the outer most holes on the chassis. we'd need the center assembly to hold the rocker arms. the bulkhead looks the same. we just lose the front brace. i *HOPE* there's a conversion kit. :nod: :D

I sure HOPE there will be a conversion... Doesn't LOOK like there is much to it.. GOTTA get those pieces..

I want this also. How wicked would this be? I bet a conversion kit will be about half the cost of the new kit.

Doesn't look like there's much to it. I'm sure if Tamiya doesn't come out with a conversion kit somebody else will. They need to make one for the front and rear, and mount the shocks lengthwise. (like an F1 car) :nod:

Besides the super slammed body, what handling characteristics are we looking at? I imagine different ratio rockers and such. Any thoughts??

kinda like the F201 i would assume..... you can vary the leverage of the rocker arm by moving around the spacers at the end? where's our F201 experts? :D

So this thing is going to be a chassis geek's wet dream. I like the concept and would like to see more of this work it's way into TC.

gone in to hiding a long time ago...lol

I used to race the F201 for ages but that was a long time ago. It will be hard to compare the two I think to an extent due to the fact that we used to race on the F201 tyres which are completelely different in regards to how a touring car tyre reacts (much bigger sidewall and flex). Mix that with the fact that it was a longwheelbase chassis and it wasn't easy to control droop, makes them very different, even if the front suspension theory is similiar.

Frost 05-17-2007 05:35 PM

Doesn't look like much droop available for control.

Interesting combination :smile:

Interesting idea. It reminds me of the front rocker setup on the Tenth Technology predators :nod:

The rear suspension should be inboard too though methinks. That would be truly awesome but the size restrictions prevent that I suspect :(

Yeah, you'd think it'd never been done before the way some of these guys are going on ;)

I ran a T Tech T1R a few years back and it was fine. Once it was setup, that was it...it worked. I don't think we had the adjustability but who knows, maybe this will? The car was very sensitive to droop settings, possibly more due to the other characteristics of the chassis.

tc3team 05-18-2007 03:45 AM

I ran the Streetwise, which wasnt too far off par with the top spec kits, the bud drives were a pretty cool idea, but mine usually popped off so I had to superglue them together,lol.

The geometry was a cool F1 inspired idea, I still think it deserves a place in modern day t/cars though, so its good to see Tamiya give it a shot :)
