Well I am looking to get a TA05, I will only use it for fun and drifting, i doubt I will get into racing, unless I find a place where the guys are not too serious. I do like the IFS because it is very F1 like, but if it has slop and some rattling or free play, that won't interest me. The IFS is only a $30 dollar difference.

Should I go with a TA05 and use the $30 i save for some goodies? or the IFS? but if the IFS is the new way tamiya will be building it's cars, I don't want to get a car that is old technology already. Any input?

Are there any photos showing a direct comparison between the low nose and normal bodys?

I'll let you guess which is which. If you can't tell the difference, then it shouldn't matter.

BTW: The TA05-IFS & TA05-R chassis has the more updated reversible suspension. The TA05-IFS-R has the most updated "short" reversible suspension. Standard TA05 are the most outdated now...

Default Suspension block question

I currently run these blocks
Straight out of the MSX manual
FRONT
1A
1XB =-1.5

REAR
1XB
1C=2.5

I am going to try the narrow arms and will try the next block wider to increase the track but keep the same degrees

The rear is fine i can go up to
1XA
1D =2.5

But the fronts are confusing

I read some setup sheets on THard

alot of them use these blocks up front
1B
1A

What degree does that give? the chart i have doesnt even read those two blocks together?

If that would be a good combo up fron to use, that is what the MRE MSX comes out of the box with, what blocks would i increase it to to keep the same degree but wider track?

Thanks for any help

Chris

Thanks!

Usable with TRF415MS, TRF415MSX, TRF415 with Reversible Suspension.

That means YES

I could be wrong but looking at the charts the block don't line up but they are next to each other which I took as a .5 difference. I just assumed that the front arm sweep was .5 I could be wrong though. I'm sure Tryhard will be along shortly to explain in more detail.

Hi mate as i said in the PM you really should have a front width of 1C block to suit the narrow arms which is base setup for the 416we and as i see it a good place to start then if you need more steering go a 1C/1B with 1mm spacers each side of the hex's which will retain width and give .5 toe.

Trial and error my friend

You are correct. The part number is 3454493 and you would need two. Just last week I purchased a pair of these from an eBay seller called Tamiyaland for $10 + shipping. You could try contacting him to see if they can get more.

http://cgi.ebay.com/3454493-Tamiya-A...13195005r14731

I couldn't find any other info on the first part number. It doesn't even appear in the manual...
