Any hints? If I raise the spring rate, it negatively affects my straight line . My speed cannot be rivaled.
is this carpet? you might have too much droop. I have very little droop on my fronts. I run on sugar watered asphalt that makes mini's roll, but all TCs don't...

oh, no. they dont. no one does, that I know of...

I also think I may remove the center one way, This car has waaaaay too much steering. Besides, the NSX body wasnt "legal" in the class, but the IFS hindered me also, so I stood up my shocks and am running a TC body. i am at 1300.1 grams race-ready. I have posted in the "roll center" thread and it appears my roll center is too high. I have a 3.5mm spacer on the diff end of the tie-rod. I changed it to a 1.5 and have yet to have raced it, but I do need to see my droop...

I run on indoor high grip carpet that is HEAVILY USED and soiled with traction compound. There is a section of the track that is a u turn, right 90*, another u turn, 90* left into a chicane then a hairpin. My car cannot be touched on straight aways, not by a longshot, so I need to take advantage of this area and the straight away, however I am losing more time flipping over!

I feel it is a mixture of many things, one being the roll center, other being the "too much steering" with the NSX body, not to mention the inconsistant handling that the IFS setup would give. (too many variables! rod length, preload, angle, bearing type/cleanliness, friction on the cups/balls, etc.) Hopefully I will try it this weekend(with permission form the wifey-I dotn want to paint a bathroom!)

I did race it. I realized what the problem is. This car has waaaay too much rear traction for high bite & traction compound soaked carpet. On asphalt, zero issues. I couldn't be touched. Being as how the asphalt track is closed and it's carpet only, I'm selling it. It's on eBay, no electronics. $300 for a near $600 chassis. Serious offers may be considered.

Oh my fife surprised me with a trf417x reciept that should be here fathers day!

Anyone knows whether I can use the stock Front Stiffener on the Exotek TA06 conversion kit? That part is the plastic mount that holds the IFS rocker arm.

I know Exotek has the IFS aluminum mount, but I have a part from Overdose which is similar to the stock part and I want to use it.

Thanks in advance!!

No you cannot.
The ifs screws into the side of the front stiffener. As far as replacing the front stiffener, no also. The front of the top plate's holes don't line up arms you world only be securing the top deck with 1 screw instead of 3.

Is is smooth concrete or like pavement? If smooth, 1.5 front and .5 rear. toe depends on body. I had 0* front on a NSX body and 1* outr on a proline TC body.

I thought 3* rear toe was a given on this chassis.

but 3 * in on rear and 1* out up front.

I also lowered the reserve on my chassis. $275

If you are running asphalt, yes, you WILL love it. I, however, run on carpet. I cannot remove traction to save my life. I love this chassis, but it doesnt fit my need. It is incredibly fast!

$275 is steal for this setup!

Default screws for gear diff

Hi GUys...

I was wondering if you guys have any problems with the screws on the gear diff...both front and back...

I don't seem to be able to find the right size of allen wrench for it. Are there any other screws that I can use?

Those screws suck.....have to use the kit allen key, and push hard, until your fingers hurt.

Yes that is the nice big fail for Tamiya of recent times......I wouldn't think you could use those screws more than once
