You can use the regular Tamiya ball diff plates or Yokomo's (ZS-506). They are the same.

You then need to use the Tamiya ball diff pulley, the two bearings that go inside the diff, and your diff balls.
I'm the XRAY slut who has been liberated...thanks for the info. Do you happen to know the size of the internal diff bearings?

Ok, then I will try 6:1 gear ration. BTW, what's the max temperature that is safe for that motor? I don't want to overheat it.

Carl;
Cough Cough... check my sig

Had one on my MSX for a few weeks (and previously had a double on my std too), Boy do they work well
I've just wired it up to the batt terminals on the speedo, and it starts up as soon as you plug the batts in. Also means the fans are running when the car is on the table after a run... useful when you need to work on the motor quickly

Much advised (Malcs a good bloke too)

BTW, do you guys know which is the best 19T in terms of performance and durability? I find that the V2 19T does not have good top end.

We prefer and have had good sucess with the Cameleon 2. It's got plenty of revs and all we do is change to a heavier spring if we want more RIP/torque. We gear from around 5.8-6.2. Ive not had much success with the reedy quad mag and have no experience with the V2 orion 19T. We do run their V2 modified 9x1 and 10x1 and love it. Good luck

I've been racing nitro onroad for the last two years, and decided to give electric a chance since the Tamiya USA track is only 15 minutes away from me.

Anyway, I picked up a TA04, and needed some suggestions on which mod motor to run. I'm going to be running the Aliso Track, and possibly Socal track in Huntington Beach CA. Both are decent medium size tracks.

Since I'm fairly new to this car, I need specific information on which motor to buy, even down to the numbers (ie 11x1, 11x2, etc), and what ratio I should start with the suggested motor.

Lastly, if you could throw some setup suggestions for this car, I would really appreciated. Sorry to throw this out on the 415 tread, but I knew all the "experts" are on this tread.
When we set up a 04 for the enduro fred suggested to try the following.
Front
2 hole piston
60wt
white spring

Rear
2 hole piston
40wt
Blue
Ride height 4.5-5.0mm
Camber 1.5-2.0 front /rear.

We ran almost no droop on front and I can't remember what we had in the rear.
As far as motor I've seen guys run 13x1 with that car on that track. Not sure how well that car would run with lower turn motors. This car was a great GT-3 platform for the mabuchi class motors prior to the introduction of the 05 which should be the dominate car in the GT-3 class.
The few times I ran My 04 at so cal the car was not competitive against the other cars so i did not put much effort at setting it up.
Anyways hope this helps and hopefully will see you out at Tamiya or Socal sometime.

what changes do you guys notice when changining spacers under camber links,
what changes do you see when changing wheelbase.

what are you guys doing to get more steering , grip, rotation, ect.

I decided to plug the fan into the RX...so I only have power when the RX is on...I decided not to wire directly to the battery as I was concerned someone during tech would hit the spinning fans....I do like the idea as the fans will cool the motor while marshalling.

In place of the plastic standoffs that come with the fan, I decided to use alum posts I had from an old associated 1/12th scale....drilled out to handle 3mm screws.

Great product!!! Hats off to the designer

Casey is using the standard arms... I only wish Tamiya had a 2 degree castor block for the standard arms.

Martin Crisp had a good set-up a few pages back with standard arms....he can probably help....

Looking forward to racing on the 14th with Casey in Maryland...
