Default TA03 Outdrives

The TA03 Diff comes all together with everything that you need to make it work. Put it together and put it in.

Anyone know the part# for the TA03 outdrives? Mine are wearing out.
Thanks

Ok so from what I have read in this great thread the following things are recommended for a good setup for racing a m05 pro

TA03 ball diff.

2 or 3 degree rear hubs for more toe out? To prevent it from wandering at high speed.

I think the m05 Pro covers the most but also TRF shocks?

Cheers Rhys

Rear hubs can be handy, note they are toe in.

Personally, to limit the wander i have found that you put a fair amount of toe out on the front (not the rear).

Your right about the front... in fact the instruction manual even says to make sure you have some toe out in the front.

What I found is if you have a minor amount of toe in it makes the steering more responsive, even a little twitchy.. Two degree toe in rear hubs seem to work better for stability. If you have your car setup with a minor amount of toe out it typically takes steering out of the car, and decreases turn in. This is true in a M05. M03's are the opposite

This might well just be the Ultimate FWD Mini kit.
The CF-R M05 conversion from Tech Racing.





We've built it, we've driven it and the full story will be up in a few days. In the meantime, here's some pics to whet your appetite.
