Default tl01 steering???

i have long arm kit, ta04 unvs. high trouqe servo saver, 0 toe angle.

my problem is that the wheels don't trun enough, it seem like such a short turn radius.

can anyone help me?

oh yeah.. one more

do i really need hollow carbon gears shafts?

i currently have:
ball bearings
Fl coated trf dampers
long arm kit
front unvis
servo saver
lgiht wirth chassie
carbon shaft
speed tuned gears

i'm running speed tuned gears and it says to use carbon hollow shaft but i don't see the use of them cause they are not rotating or anything...or are tehy? i understnad teh carbon prop shaft is usefull but the shafts that hold the inner gears is more of a weight saving hop up right?

Default TL01 Hop-ups

The Idea behind the Carbon "Main" shaft is to reduce rotating mass to improve accelleration.

Yes, changing to the Carbon internal gear shafts reduces the overall weight of the Car.

Sounds like the Car is Pushing in the Front. There are several ways to attack this problem. Try these few one at a time and see if they help.

1) Softer FRONT Springs and/or Stiffer REAR Springs
I try to keep fairly close in Front to Rear Spring rates, with the Front maybe 1 or 2 steps stiffer.

2) Reduce FRONT Droop to no more than 2mm.
This REALLY helped get rid of the Push that I had in our TL01.

Good luck!

i'll try those soon.

so the internal carbon gears is not need with the speed tuned gears right? casue on teh instructions it says use those gears.

and to limit droop would be adding o-rings spacers etc. on teh shaft of the dampers inside the shock body.

yea...cause i have like 6mm of droop right now in front adn 2mm in rear.

The droop is definately one of your problems, also it might help if you use the same tire and foam compound all the way around.
