Man, she's a good ol' car, and given me thousands of faithful laps. It's almost got sentimental value at this point.

Now, my completely tricked out TA05 might have to go...

I m going to start building my TRF416 this weekend.

This is my first time building a car with a graphite chassis.

In the manual it says to file the edges and the go over it with instant glue.

Is this really necessary? What is the advantage of doing this? What is the disadvantage of not doing this?

Thanks.

yes it is important

in a race or an impact the chassis will flex and twist , this will cause the carbon fibres to sepperate and weaken the chassis BADLY !!

do it i did and the chassis is perfect , also if your using saddle packs do the cell indents well cos this will stop short circuits or battery tape damage


has any one used 1XB front bridge rear suspension ??

Thanks for that.

Looks like it's going to take longer than I expected, but it's cool.

take your time , read the instructions and it will pay you back 10 fold over the years racing

it took me 3 nites of building and i went 0.5 seconds faster than my 415 ever went before i even put the 416 on the set up guages !!!!

now i am over a second a lap quicker with this car then i was and feel the car is more planted then the 415 ever would be

build you shocks with no rebound , use blue front springs and yellow rear

with 1D 1D front blocks and 1XA 1D rear with an extra 0.5mm spacer under the rear block on the front suspension and remove the 0.5 spacers from under the rear blocks if you want a lot of grip

You want rounded edges so it does not hook up (at least on carpet)...and not get carbon fibres separating... etc...and then you seal it with CA glue...

I thought this had been posted somewhere before, but I can not find it now. Does anybody have a chart that shows what toe the different suspension mount combinations will get you? I looked on tryhards site but it doesn't explain it completely.

Thanks
