Sorry if this has been covered before, but has anyone come across a problem with the steering linkage screws (connecting K4 to K5 & K6) hitting the support ribs on the sides of the chassis as the bellcranks go back and forth? After some disassembly, I cranked the screws a little tighter but to no avail. Any ideas?

Between school and a second child on the way, I decided to sell my HPI formula 10 when I was at work. I get home to pack it up to ship, and my 7 year old son gives me the "but daddy, WE were supposed to race it and we never did!" guilt trip... So... Guess what I bought?

I splurged for the front and rear ball diffs, Ta05VII alum sus mounts and nitride ball ends. I plan on running 21.5r, and Was curious during my build what oil is reccomended for the transfer case? What are the benefits of higher/lower oils? This is my first car with a gear diff, but my 5th tamiya, 4th ta chassis(TA05, TA05ifs, Ta05 vII previously)

I am getting the GT500 GTR body shell...

You are using the wrong screws. There should be 2 other screws with shallow buttons in the same bag.

Here's my car. Car comes in race ready at 1398g. Almost 50g disadvantage compared to the CF cars at my track, but not bad for a plastic car. We'll see how she runs.

nice install! I like the way you installed the servo, but I wonder how it will take a T-bone. I guess you have to add weight to compensate if you bring the esc on the left. The shorter motor wire is a good idea too.

I don't think there is hardly any weight difference between the Tekin RS and that receiver. You might be better off putting the ESC closer to the motor.

The tekin is 50 something grams w/wire. The servo is another 43 grams. So that's a total of about 100g on the left side if you put the esc on the left. The receiver/ponder is 14g
Even if you count the motor plate/spur/pinion(10-15g??), belt(2g), pullys(5-10g), the right side will be considerably light with just the receiver. You need to add weights to balance the car which kills the savings from cutting the motor wire short. The only advantage after that is the efficiency of the motor wire conductivity.

I don't have 4 kitchen scales, but the builds that I have seen with the esc on the right have reported that they get almost 50/50 with no weights.

What would the weight difference be between IFS setup vs stand up shocks?

Couldnt imagine much, But figure the aerodynamic impact also. The IFS setup allows lower/longer hoodline in addition to overall lower body.

Im curious how long the servo sensor wire is...

Almost finished the build and I'm very impressed with the quality of this mid end kit.
No slop at all, no excessive play either !
Silky smooth dampers as usual for tamiya, nice materials choice ...

What can I say ? Perfect !

That only applies if you want to run TCS bodies. Not everyone does or can ya know.

Just came back from a race. The handled well for its first run. Ran 17.5 boosted.

However, I noticed something. During the middle of the qualifying, I noticed that my belt was skipping on braking. Thought that the belts have broken in, and tried to tighten them up. But what I noticed is that the plastic front pulley holder (the one held down by two screws) has moved diagonally, causing the belt to become excessively loose. I had to tighten the two screws just before the point of stripping the thread to get a good hold on it. Even then, occasionally had to re-torque them down through out the day. That piece is in dire need to be produced in aluminum. The carbon reinforced parts are going to be a must for this car if you are going to be running faster than RCGT speeds.

Other than that, the car has lots of potential.
