For my non basher cars I like to upgrade to stiffer CF parts
as used on TB Evo 5, TRF417 etc. Arms, knuckles, c-hubs.

Have done that to 1 of above cars, difference is noticeable.
I have not yet done CF tub nor carbon shock towers
as they were not shipping yet then.
thank you, do you think the standard shock position is better for you? or I should say which one do you prefer?

Where can one find setups for this car runing 17.5/13.5 or even 10.5 on say short tight indoor carpet tracks?

The question is what is the standard setup.
I did not see anything in my box other than toe which is done by the blocks.
But my S710 (yeah back in the day) came with a default setup sheet and a blank one. this is my first time owning Tamiya.

If it's for the weight, how much difference is between the Normal plastic chassis and the Graphite reinforced chassis?
It is stiffer, more balanced and can take a hit a little better than the standard chassis.

biggest PITA would be changing the shock shafts but if
you've got a spare pair of TRFs then its a nobrainer
586 oz v 616 oz... im surprized that it only increased by that little...

I have opted for all the eacgle racing except the bulkheads. Im rocking the Tamiya graphite ones.

Do you have a part number for the graphite arms?

I asked the same question a few pages back. happy hunting!

WC, i found part # 53928 and I wanted to know if your width changed any...It says short sus arms, but the diagrams look nearly 100% the same, even where the holes line up.

53928 **sells by the pair (1F, 1R)**



51353*sells by the set of 4(2F, 2R)**

Might be an odd question but our indoor carpet season is only during winter. I am switching from 1/8 eBuggy to 1/10 4x4 SC (Durango) which uses saddle packs. Any chance saddle packs will fit the TA06 Pro?

then why include #51353 in a "pro" version? getting rid of old stock? why not include those in the non pro versions and give us the 53928's?

as a traditionalist... i prefer a shock tower - but i try remain unbiased.
Didn't buy TA05IFS, couldn't avoid it on TB03... until TB03D arrived
with shock tower when mine lost its IFS shortly afterwards

Reasons:-

a, there's more parts to break/jam/loosen/falloff

b, TA06's pushrod can interfere with steering knuckle arm

c, T has done linkage really 'flat' on 06, which causes lateral force on 850s.
Bearings aren't designed to take much sideways load.

d, on 06 IFS they use long shock shaft, no way i'd go buy more just for IFS.
When tuning cars i usually bring a few sets of TRFs in different weights
so i can snap them off/on within seconds to try different settings.
(my filling routine takes hours, never do it trackside)
No other car needs long shaft TRFs!!

e, also on the 06... the pivot for the rocker is on a plastic bit that does flex,
ideally this needs to be on alloy or properly triangulated so it doesn't flex.
T is getting slack, the 05IFS and TB03 pivots weren't noticeably flexy.
(I added a turret brace influenced by T Avante)

in the manual they specify what lengths your turnbuckles need to be

if u do those accurately then you will end up with a workable base setup,
without need for any other measurement tools other than a good ruler
(i like 15cm/6" steel rules where the 0 goes right to the square edge)


most of us have our own preference, so when i build i don't bother measuring
and only after everything is at running weight i'll put car on the setup jig.

generally i'll start with

camber 1.5-2.0deg (-ve)
front toe 0-1deg out
rear toe 2/2.5/3.0deg in or whatever is kit std
lately with flexy chassis i'm liking lots of droop, leave screws out
rideheight 4-6mm

same

bear in mind IFS car has extra
3 turnbuckles, rockers with 4x 850s, pivots
vs
chunky plastic shocktower and mount wedge

IFS done in stainless hardware vs black steel on the other
but there's not much difference in weight there afaik.
Might lose 20-30g if it were Al or Ti.
