May I ask what this aluminium crank bell is? I have a TT-01 Type E.
Will it fit my car and what are the advantages?

the bell crank is the piece that goes inbetween the steering servo arm and the steering rods attached to your knuckles, its mounted in place with two arms attaching to the steering rods that pivot 90 degrees left or right which turns your wheels,
the advantage of having an aluminum (or carbon fibre even better as its lighter) is that it will tighten up the stock plastic steering slop and play which in turn will give you better accuracy and response in steering along with the car not verring of to one side when going down a straight,
the pic attached is the bell crank you need which fits all TT01 and E, they are about $24 at most

Default To rotate or not rotate... That is the question :)

Last race at TCS one of the Pros marked my tires with a sharpie (RL, RR, FL FR). But what for I asked, don't you rotate them?

When running foam tires after each race I rotate them to prevent uneven wear. Do you guys recommend or not rotating rubber on the TA05 V2?

Thanks for the input...

Marcos

I ordered this Hitec low profile servo, it is easier to fit a reciever in its spot it has 61oz of torque...it is about 2 1/2X the price of a standard servo so I hope it will perform better.

Questions??

My TA05 is way louder compared to everyone else's cars at the track. Is there anything I can do to make it way quieter?

I think it has something to do with the spur/pinion?

Zac,

If you are using 48 pitch gears, it's going to be louder than the cars that are running 64 pitch gears. That being said, you may have the gear mesh a little tight. You can run the 48 pitch gears pretty loose. Try backing the mesh out just a tad. You may have a bearing going bad too so check those.

You have a pm

Thanks, I am using a 48 pitch pinion with the stock spur. There's already a little play inbetween but I'll try backing it off a little more.

And belts are more loose than tight.

Since the TA05 does not come with a 48dp spur gear as standard, this is probably your problem. Your pinion does not mesh with the spur. Depending on the TA05 kit you have, it either has a 0.6 or 0.4mod spur, and you need to get a pinion of the same pitch, or exchange the spur for a 48dp one.

Really so your still looking for a shorter servo? Are you mounting the receiver on the floor of the chassis? That might be it. I usually have to mount it on top of the servo. I went going with a savox mg125 I think, but I think Im still going to have to get one of the pro receivers so all the electronics can be on the "floor".

Won't be very effecient......either get the correct Tamiya pinion to match the Tamiya spur or change the spur to a 48P and use 48P pinions.

Will still be more noisey than running 64P but not as bad as you have it now!
