Not if you put a one-way at both ends and forget about braking, it won't.

I think he said to use the one-way in front and spool in the rear. Many 1/10 nitro cars use that set-up but that is for using foam tires on a prepared high traction track.

What is it that you intend to do with your IFS? I race mine on asphalt, concrete and carpet tracks and the set-up is different for each surface. For asphalt I'm using a spool in front and diff in back racing mod sedan. For silver can I use a diff in both ends but on carpet I use the front one-way.

It seems that you do not have very much experience with RC. Just use it as it came out of the box and learn what the chassis can do before you screw it up.

I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share their Asphalt setup for the IFS car. I just picked one up and I was looking for a good base setup to work from.

Also, I would like to use one of the following bodies and was wondering what body people preferred, Lexus SC430, NSX or EEBRO? TIA

Yes, I agree the NSX is my favorite. I did not list it however because I did not think is was TCS legal for GT2.

One of the reasons I was asking questions on the bodies is I want to also use this car in the 13.5 sedan classes we have up here in Norcal. I no longer wish to run an accord, stratus or whatever is the current fast body. I am willing to sacrifice some performance for having very cool ride on the track.

Try the ebbro350R lightweight. Tamiya bodies are nice, but they tend to be heavy. The 350R LW weighs less than 100g vs 135 for the raybrig NSX 2007. You can put cool bodies on the IFS, and if you are sick of seeing the same wedge on the course, they are the way to go. It would be awesome if tamiya made the 2007 NSX in a LW style.

I'm just waiting on the GTR superGT version.

My brother has just purchased his first TA05 IFS-R and its winging its way from Hong Kong as we speak. As its his first TA05-IFS I was wondering if anyone could recommend the essential Hop Ups that he might as well buy now rather than setting it up and then looking to change things later.

He'll be racing on Carpet mainly.

Currently I'm thinking of the following:
2x 49425 TA05 Aluminum Differential Joint Set (Tamiya)
53993 TA05-IFS Aluminum Rocker Arm Set (Tamiya)
53994 TA05-IFS Carbon Damper Stay (Rear) (Tamiya)
TS-IFS/V1 Titanium Screw Set For TAMIYA TA05-IFS (3 Racing)

He's also tempted to buy the Aluminium Bulk head front and back but there only seems to be a front (i.e. Tamiya part #54019) can I assume that he can use the TA05 rear???

Also is there much slop in the steering? Should buy the carbon/aluminium steering assembly?

I appreciate your help and your opinions.

Cheers

You could get those but none will improve either the performance or durability, however, the bling is nice. Of all you mentioned only the diff may enhance the car but you will need to buy some extra drive pin pads.

You will still have the same slop in the steering but the carbon will cost you more. Get bearings for the steering, more bang for the buck than anything you listed. After all, it is an R type.

I bought all the screws from Tony's Screws for about $12 and have plenty of spares all good steel screws.

Drive both without knowing which is which and you can't tell the difference. I have both the R and the IFS upgraded a little and they both handle very similarly.

The IFS is only important to use a lower front profile body such as the EBBRO 390, NSX or the PTI Nissan 390r.

I got a chance to race my IFS-R today and I am very impressed. I have been running variations of the TA05 for almost 3 years and this is the best yet. For whatever reason the car seems to hold more corner speed than my 05R. Anyways, out of the box and to the track with very little changes. I went to a spool and blue front springs...other than that it's per the manual and the car is on rails!

if you are going to buy the aluminum bulkhead you can only use it at the rear of the IFS, front bulkhead of the IFS is different from the original TA-05, R and MS
