Probably the arms were not spaced right to begin with. Sometimes, flash on the pivot balls doesn't let the ball seat all the way, so even if you shim it perfect, it's wrong in a couple of runs.

Re shim the arms and have another go at it.

What happend? What parts are worn out? Arms, plastic spacers? Another problem maybe? My TA-05v2R has the the same rear suspension, but build in CF and the spacers are in aluminium; no wear here.

Thanks for your input, Alwin
If it's like mine and you are running the stock plastic suspension mounts, it's probably just the mounts shifting a little. If I push the rear mount forward while tightening the screws there will not be any play but after a run or 2 the play comes back. I just put an extra shim in to take care of it.

By the way, has anyone heard anything about a carbon tub coming out soon. My chassis has a twist that comes back every run .

Thanks for your input. I've rebuild the rear suspension and it looks ok now. Probably, I was a bit cautious not to over tighten the screws into the plastic.

I'll see how it looks like after a few runs.

Wow that looks awesome. How are these working on carpet tracks? Also how does it work with the 6 degree caster compared to 4?
Has anybody switched from a TA06 which is what I currently use on carpet?

Haven't try at carpet yet. Is another great product from Tamiya.
I can't tell the different between 4 degree to 6 degree, but the car handle good in the corner as is stock set up out the box.
Thanks.

Why is the drivetrain noisier than belt drives? Is this normal?

Hi guys,
I would like to know how long are your new short dampers?
Can they reach approx 54/55 mm
Thank you for the help

I have a TB-03 and it is noiser than my TA-05. Shaft cars have gears in the drive train that trasfer power to the tires, this gives a sound that the belt drives don't have. But, if not shimmed correctly it can be much louder a sound. I can't decide which car I like better but the torque coming out of the corner on a shaft car is awesome and the smooth acceleration of the belt drive is easy to manouver through the corners is so easy to drive.
The TB-04 has an extra set of gears to compensate for the motor at 90 degrees from the shaft so again if not shimmed properly it can make a lot of noise and bind the drivetrain.
I race at the Tamiya track here in Aliso Viejo and it's hard to compare the three chassis but based on the last Speedtech race, the TB-04 made podium the first time out, now that is impressive!
Just my 2$
