Droop has a lot to do with entry/exit traction also.

yup.. not to mention the 100 different ways people measure it. even the terminology behind it can get confusing.

Idea is the same.
2mm over the base ride height is where I start.

1. Measure the ride height.
2. Measure the height as you lift the car. When the tires are no longer on the ground...
Take the difference between the two measurements. That's the droop.

If car pushes going into the turn, the rear end might not have enought lift(droop) for the weight to transfer.
If the car pushes coming out of a turn(on power understeer), the front end is lifting up too much and weight is transferred to the rear too much.

If the car spins out going into a turn, the rear might have too much droop resulting in too much weight transfer forward.

From the base set up the tire and saucing seem to have the greatest effect on handling.
And the next thing is droop, IMO.

I just redid my ta05 v2 and I am loose on exit,

Seems like the rear end is hopping when I apply power on exit causing it to spin out

I might have my ball diff to tight. Would that cause it?

have red springs, blue sway bar, 40wt oil

The front end of the case is stiffer but is exactly where I want it,

Any ideas .

depends upon the surface your on.
or go back to full stock set up and go from there one adjustment at a time. oversteer stiffen front or softer rear. Ball diff should be back off a little past 1/2 turn from full lock up.

My set up for TCS carpet is yellow springs, ball diffs. lightest swaybars, 40 wt but every track is different. if it oversteers stiffen front, less rear droop,
no spool. make one adjustment at a time.

Here is the Quick guide from Xray. It is helpful. Once you get your car setup decent, you only have to play with one or two things when the track condition changes.

Not worth it. To be honest if you are even considering a $499 purchase, I would look at higher level cars like Xray T4. You can get a used T4 for less but it is a lot more car than a hopped up ta05.

$499 is probably the MSRP.

I have seem a few on ebay and on here. Buy all were quite expensive. Better to just get a v2 and upgrade i think. You dont get the pink wheels though
