Need a setup for TA-04R
a buddy of mine just started RC cars... actually he started again since he owned a couple of offroaders a few yeras ago. But anyways, he bought a TA-04R. I advised him not to, but still he did it... Anyways... once he had a few runs on it, I put it on the Hudy bench, adjusted everything symmetrical, dialed 1deg camber front 2 deg rear, 1.5 or 2 mm of droop everywhere, 5mm ride height, 1 deg toe out on front... much better than the floating assymmetrical setup he had before, but the car is still not what I'd like it to. It's very unpredictible and is not as fast as what I'd think it could reach. Corner speed is nil, it spins out either off or on power.
I know the TA04 is no FT TC3 or a T1, but still it should be able to perform better, since it is a rather nice design overall (although too much soft plastics and play for my taste), and shares a lot with the 414. However I barely have enough time to set-up my own car right, let alone spend time on his, which I have no clue about... Can anybody give a good overall starting point for that car with rubbers, on concrete? I'm especially looking for shock setup, since geometry is pretty much the same on all cars (see above).
thx a lot!
