That does not go on the MS. If you look closely you'll see the package states "useable chassis: TA05".

Cheers, I didn't think it did. The ebay ad states it fits the 05ms chassis, but they appear to be wrong.

What if any upgrade parts can you get for the ms ? I've seen carbon battery straps, bumper straps and titanium turnbuckles, but not much else.

this is just HOW i do it.. so it might work for you.. it might not.

1. i weigh all my electronics.
2. i weigh my lipo

i take the difference between the two, and put that much weight on the lipo.

once this is done.... i take the remaining weight that i still need to make legal weight...and distribute evenly around the chassis.

The MS manual makes no mention of antisquat.
Would the placement of a spacer under the forward rear suspension bridge give my car antisquat, or is there a problem with doing this?

Is there any benefit to using a power capacitor with 27T stock motors?

I measure each wheel's weight on a 500g limit scale. the position of the weight makes a huge difference when it is close to the center or far off the center, front or rear.

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.
I think the best way is to take out the rear stablizer bar, everything remains the same, just love the neutral handling of the ta05ms.

Right I've made the adjustments to keep the rear end from sliding, fitted my lipo and cut off and hopefully should have some good racing next weekend. They really don't give you much chassis room !
