Your biggest performance change will be your tires
; this is overlooked by so many racers....this is the secret....your grip can make the difference between a lap or two, even with a poorly set up car.
sorex 36 medium insert
take off 27
Go with kit set up.
then start with these minor changes
(This work great with a front and center oneways)
1mm blocks under each block (giving the car more roll)
note:you can get away with just the rear.
I have gone as high as 2mm under each block
1mm shim under the inner camber link front and rear(using the longest setting) Tamiya Aluminum Bulkheads.....
2mm under the outter camber link
these changes alone should make the car bite down hard.
1.5 - 2 degree camber all around
Damper (CF Hop Up)
top 2nd hole from the outside
lower outside hole
top 3rd hole from the outside
lower inner hole
I have stock blocks it the rear(1b) if it start to break loose, which it shouldn't
I will go up a letter 1c 1d 1e. And or move the top Shock position inward.
front 1mm up travel
rear 2-2.5 up travel
If the shocks are working great I will tighten this baby down
I hate body roll....or watching the car settle.
Due to the uneven Molded I sometime may have to twist chassis then adjust the Tweak with my Preload.
I try to keep my preload even
the samething with the droop. It will be off by maybe .3 and 5.mm or as much as 1mm
That is okay for this chassis is solid... The tweak will not be offset by hit anything.
I run Brushless and I have run as high as FDR 5 and As low as FDR 4.5
I will run as close to termal as possible......
There is alot of butt to move on this car.
The only reason I kept this car over all my others, is I love watching the faces of other racer Once they realize they have been done in by a Ta05R.
I did change the Internal Ratio (IR) to 1.944
