Well I've been running the TA05ms now for 3 rounds of our local indoor carpet racing and its been quite impressive out of the box. Easily competitive and the handling has been quite neutral. The main issue I'm having is back end grip, or lack of it. On power its fine but once the powers lifted the back end just slides around on the bends. I've tried reducing the rear end droop incase the weight transfer was picking up the back end, but still no real inprovements. I don't want to lose any of the steering as the tracks are quite twisty but this sliding is really killing my lap times.

tried lowering the rear roll center? or laying the rear shocks down a hole or 2?

Hey Martin,

I would go with trying moving the front shocks out on the tower to start, and also try running more shims on the front axle.

If you really want to try something different, try D/D on the front suspension blocks. This will widen the front end, and make the front arms parrallel, which should help massively with reducing your lift off oversteer.

HiH
Ed

cheers Guys,

I'll try a few options out. Just need the car to be less twitchy through the bends, hopefully one of the suggested fixes will work. Its crazy, but even at club level one spin can cost you the race.

Hi guys!
Does this fit the TA05MS?

RC Front Direct Coupling - TA05
Item #53877

Is there anything else needed to change from the kit front 1 way to a front spool?

Thanks!

That is the correct part, and that's all you need

You can also try:
Stiffer front springs - stop the nose from going down.
Stiffer front stabilizer - increases rear traction.
Stand front shocks up - similar to the already suggested lay rear down.
And as already mentioned and as you have tried less rear droop.

You can also mess with the front roll center or add anti-dive.

I know this is overkill, but what pinion size should I start with for a 9 turn double?

I hate to post this in here, but if anyone is interested in a clean, low usage 05MS, let me know. I have chosen to sell mine due to other interests this summer and my budget won't allow me to keep it. Great car, lots of usable spare parts, etc.
