I have done my research and have treid some suggested tricks but nothing I have tried has made it tighter so far.
I have added 2x 0.2mm shims to my ta03 ball diff and it was tight ,almost spool and it doesn't came to loose again😀

For those of you racing on the new black ozite carpet using a gear diff, what weight diff fluid are you using?

That's the best I could do to turn a Mazda MX5 into a Honda S2000

I just installed the adjustable upper links and M05ra hubs and knuckles on the front of my car. I am now getting some serious bump steer. Like 5 degrees out when extended to 5 degrees in when compressed. I can't figure out how to get rid of it. It's causing a major issue with handling. The le car is unpredictable and very squirmy.

professor, did a quick internet search and found your answer on the tamiyaclub.com website. Here is a link - http://www.tamiyaclub.com/forum/inde...d-info-please/

Basically you need to go with a longer ball connector/stud on the steering knuckle. According to the post you need Tamiya part number 19805825.

Check out this picture and you will see the longer ball stud which is a brass piece

=========

Bump steer is usually caused when the steering turnbuckles change at a different rate/angle when compared to the front a-arms. Adjusting the height of the ball stud on the steering knuckle should help alleviate/lessen the excessive bump steer.

Which holes did you use to mount the rally hubs? Is there a particular reason you went for the rally ones? You need to use extra long ball studs on the knuckles when using the raised ride height setting on the rally hubs.

Edit: Looks like IndyRC beat me to it

Could someone recommend a Savox servo for the M05 that's less than 50 bucks?
