I dont run much Foam TC, but the FK05 Nexus threw together is flying. Unless Tamiya releases a similar chassis to that which was used in Vegas, I think I'll be sticking to rubber tires w\ my 415's.

PS - I assume you were the guys sitting behind Nexus at the DEN. Hopefully you got the 415 working ok there.

Well ran again tonight, car is far better that last week. Just need to make a few more changes and it will be right on the money. Gone back to the old suspension, white front springs and blue rear and it is 100% better.

The front is really pushing, I have read on here not to use F sway bars, but I have lightened the front up which helped, I cant increase castor as there are no different options....what else could I try? Soften the front even more, it is already rolling quite a lot.
you could try siffening the back springs or a harder rear swaybar. Also try more toe in in the back.
Also, what front drive are u running: diif, 1way, or spool?

I ran today, the back was lifting as the front was too soft, I couldnt see that from the stand. Stiffened the fronts one step, and added fr sway bar....much better....I am slowly learning!

hi guys,
i have a TA05, mod it a little and thinking of changing to the msx refine2...what do ya guys think?

1) fully mod the 05 with cf chassis and such
2) just get the refine 2

on a tight budget..

If you're on a tight budget why not get a standard 415 second hand, or just new as they're still in production i believe ? It'll still be better than your TA05 and cheaper than a MSX.

lol, you didn't understand my question but you answered it nonetheway : in board toe in.

Have to say, i'm not quite sure about the effect of it. I'm still unsure on the effect of in board toe out, and i've been using it for nearly a year. I find it to help counter the bad effects of a spool. When I ran the car with D-D, it was sluggish entering corners and even more mid corner. Switching to D-A made the car much better, but in which proportions is it due to the change of wheelbase i don't know, since i've not tried altering that.

So to try and answer your question, I'd say it'll give the car less steering entering and mid corner, and maybe more on power steering. I'll say another thing, it's likely that big teams like Tamiya, HB and such have tried it, and if they're not using it it might mean that it don't work.

Why not order direct from Tamiya America? They've got their site set up for online ordering and they ship usually the next day....that is, if you can't find parts anywhere else and are willing to pay full-price
