I thought I had the short arm set up down on this car when I last posted my set up sheet. After a little bit more testing, it turns out that the car had too much forward weight shift under braking for corner entry.

So, I set my 416 aside for a bit to get my TA05MS working well. I made a number of changes (blue front spring, front lower shock mounting position, roll center) and though I only got to test the MS a little, I can already feel that it's much more dialed. I may think up a few new things to try if more laps will reveal new weaknesses. If anyone's interested, I attached the set up that I am currently using.

I'm new to reading these, but is that 5mm wheel spacers?

i presume the "wheel spacer" figure that is used in that setup sheet includes the clamping wheel hub...

the TA05MS comes with the 5mm hubs, so the figure of 5mm means there are no additional spacers..
i have seen this also used to just show how many additional spacers above the default wheel hub

eg. 4mm hub 1mm spacers could show as just 1mm, with the assumption the default hubs hadnt been changed etc

With short arms at least, it seems like the blue springs up front are the way to go. When I used a one way and the regular LW arms in my TA05MS, yellow up front with red rears worked well.

It's great that there are set ups being posted for this car. Even when the MS was first released, there weren't really any set ups posted to get ideas from.

thats interesting, because with the long arms i opted for a much stiffer setup

The softer springs probably worked because I used the one way for a tight low traction course.

when i first started racing the TA05MS i think i went down the "stiff is better" path to get the car handling consistently on the carpet track i was running on...
it worked for me and carried well into the modified touring class

Yup, too much roll with a lot of power equals instability.

Those electrics look fine. Check to see if the lipo will fit (it should do)

As an aside, my car is racing really well atm

Hello everyone,

I'm getting back into racing RC cars after 10 years (last car was a Schumacher SST2000), and I just got a crazy good deal on a TA05MS.

I plan on running Canadian TCS GT2 class, which requires a tub chassis, so the plan so far is to convert the MS to the TA05R chassis.

Now, what parts are required to remove the beautiful carbon lower plate and replace it with the R tub?

Thanks for any help, and I look forward to tearing it up with my new toy.

Erik

AFAIK you can't put tub chassis on 05ms.
It is designed for carbon fiber.
