The only way to deal with that issue is to buy double cardan joints. As for the best Tamiya wing for usgt I'm not sure there is one. Hpi makes a great set of molded wings that are usgt legal.

Indeed I do have the double cardan joints and it really solves the problem of the chatter,too bad they are not included with the pro kit(not so pro at all ...)
I own the tamiya ones and they are great quality,highly recommended

no other way to solve this unfortunalty

Clearly you're not well versed in the Tamiya product lines. "Pro" kits aren't the top of the line TRF kits, they are a step up from the standard kits with basic upgrades like bearings and oil filled dampers. At least it's not providing the crappy dogbones.

Old worn standard driveshafts with more play can reduce the chatter.

All plastic? Are you trying to troll us?

no,I am not,just my opinion,I like the ta07 for the handling,possibilty to beat more expensive cars.Even my 419x

But all the plastics...

Look at your servo when you steer with the plastic servo mount,the whole servo moves,terrible wheel hubs at stock,they fall out wheel you remove the wheels and break easy when you use a 16t or equal
The terible plastic pulley,it breaks easy.
TTe sock servo saver does have a lot of flex to
The flex within the standard damper stays is very noticible.Look at the damper stay when you push in the damper.
Plastics off those parts is too soft
C hubs are not hard to break(yes the stock,the carbon reinforced is worse),at our club we have a lot off ta07 racers,this is a common problem
Plus those blue ball connectors they include are way to soft,they easy wear out.
The alu steering shafts bent easely with a crash or something(due the length of the shafts and the material) like that,steel versions would be better


I love my ta07 with all the hop ups that I have on it now,but,standard there is room for improvement.

The 419X is *not* all plastic.

Also, your complaint about the servo mount is apparently a design feature nowadays; they call it a "floating servo mount". I don't comprehend the purpose of such a thing, but apparently some people think it makes the car faster.

I think they're trying to say (quite poorly) that the TA07 is all plastic. Again, that's a common trait among the "Pro" Tamiya kits.

The floating servo mount design is to prevent the servo mounts from causing uneven flex in the chassis itself, as otherwise it braces the chassis.

yes,but some parts break down too often and with ease.like the pulley and wheel hubs If they where made, from better plastics,I would not complain,but some parts are just too weak.

i like this car,really like it,with the replaced parts

the floating servo is great,but again of the servo mount was build from better(stiffer) plastics,I would not complain.It moves way too much.

You don't get that in this level of kit for the price but what is nice about this kit is you can pick and choose the level of upgrades you want to install in the car and don't have to just purchase a $500-$600 car out of the gate. if you want a better floating servo mount go buy the hop-up part. I believe it is part # 54724.
