sorrie for the ultra late reply

I do have the alu servo mount and also the alu steer components,but still slop.

It's a shame,because I really like this car,its damm fast,really direct when I steer in the corner,(lot off corner speed)and a lot off grip.And I think its a joy ,tuning the tb05

You may need to shim your steering setup. Also check your bearing in the linkage.

A video showing the slop you're complaining about would help us make useful suggestions.

It's definitely faster out of corners than a front differential, especially on med/high grip. On low grip a front differntial can make the difference. Cons for spool are the forces and therefore wear, that are working on front axle. As an alternative you can put 1.000.000 - 2.000.000 cst or diff putty in your front differential, to test the difference.

I am, much more speed,corner out.

Drive train, does have wear, because an spool is harder on the drive train.
But for me the plus always wins....

Make sure your bearing seats in the steering (arm/rack) is not worn i.e. anodizing worn away. In the older TB cars i would coat the inside with a tiny amount of blue loctite, so the bearings would stay put better, and not develope play. I only needed to use a heatgun to remove them for changeouts. You can get out most play, just remember a little is ok.

No need for a fan. I'm adjusting the gearing with a temp gun.
