Default TA05-IFS Damper Stay Rear - Carbon 53994

Is anyone using this part? I just installed one on my ifs-R and now the rear camber links make contact with the bottom of the body posts???

I suppose I could just move the body post to the back side of the carbon damper stay, but that would be contrary to the included instructions.

any1 want a sweet IFSR, i put my new 1 on ebay. wont make TCS this yr (ugh, at least i'm on vacation then).

damn sweet car, more folks should run it. especially if ur on parking lot. any1 come across folks tryin to pull the slip in VTA by changing the FDRs around from this car and a regular ta05. seen it happen once, unfortunately for the offender, the tech guy knew the difference.

Default What size swing shafts do I need?

Hi there,

I have a TA05-IFS and bought the Short Reversible Suspension Set (Item #54083). This one comes without the swing shafts and I see that these come in different lengths. Can somebody please tell me what size swing shafts I need?

Kind regards,

Cinq

Thanks for your quick reply! The standard dog bones are 48 mm. I tried with a 48 mm universal and even on the standard arms, I had several mm of play. I think I need 44 or 46 mm with the shorter arms but I haven't found a definitive answer yet. Since my local shop doesn't have the swing shafts on stock, I want to make sure I order the correct ones.

Kind regards,

Cinq-

If you are using the short reversable suspension arms, you will need the 46mm drive shafts. I have the IFS-R, that has the short arms, and it uses the 46mm ones. Hope this helps answer your question.

TA05-R = 48mm driveshafts
TA05-ifs = 48mm driveshafts
ifs-R = 46mm driveshafts

Does anyone know if the TA-05 ver 2 will take the same spool & shocks as the ta05 ver 1?

which differential pulley is best for ta05 ifsr? 37t or 36t? or combination? is there any effect on the combination? I think 36t is faster than 37t. I prefer to have 36t on both front and rear but the belt is too loose. Is there any solution to this?
thanks guys.

i'm sure ver 2 uses the same spool & shock.
the differences are the narrow chassis, center motor mount, center pulley, chassis stiffener, short arm, upright. you can check those on the website.

turn the bearing holder to set the tension or if it doesn't work you should change the belt to the old version (for the standard ifs, not ifsr).

36t will give you lower internal ratio (37t:18t = 2.055 IR, 36t:18t = 2.000 IR).
this gives you a flexibility to find FDR, does not make your car faster.

use the belts for TA05 (aramid blue or the standard black ones) if you want to use 36T diffs. use the white ones if you'll be using 37t. hth!

Default KO Propo Servo

Anyone have problem with KO Propo servo? I am using 2501 in particular. It seems it is a bit wider than other servos.

I previously used a standard servo that came with Sanwa MX-A Tx and had no problem fitting it in. But with 2501, the long screw that goes from the bottom up of the tub had to kind of lean to the outer side of the tub.

The servo saver also touched the tub so I had to use a filer and made a "dip" (not sure the right word for this) so it could make a turn all the way to the left with no problem. Is this legal for TCS anyway?

Appreciate your advice. Thanks.
