Just finished building an MSX last night and ended up short of 2 ball ends for the steering linkage. All steps per manual were followed.

You must have lost some ball ends. There should be 2 extra.

Can anyone confirm if the option part below for a TA-05 will fit the MSX as well.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/TA05-TA-05-Al...QQcmdZViewItem

I did get 2 spare posts and other bits extra so that evens out the missing ball ends.

I think the TA05 has the old style arms on it and your msx (if stock) will have the reversible arms on it.

Here in the US many of the mod drivers run 2 and sometimes 3 fans on the motor to try and keep the motor from unsoldering. I've seen pics of Hara wrapping wet paper towels around the wires to help.

But I would think the question that would be of bigger deal is what brushes are they using? Especially after seeing this pic:

I'ld love to know what the copper shunt brushes are.


Also does anyone know if that is a homemade shotky diode or does someone make that?

Default Balance Problem

Just built a TRF415MS ran it for the first time and the rear end was so loose it was spinning out at every corner.
The set up was (basically Dave Junns setup sheet data)
Yellow springs all around
60wt front
40wt rear
One hole in on all top shock mounts
Takeoff 27's
on Net ball courts (like green tennis court surface, very grippy!)
EA monster stock
IB3800's

The car was lightning fast (several guys commented on the speed)
It just was so loose in the rear end.

I ended up with White springs on the front & red springs on the rear
I adjusted the front shock mount out one hole and the rear in one hole and it was much better, still a bit loose.

I look at the threads and everybody says how much grip they get from the 415.

My question is have I set something else up wrong which is causing the poor rear end grip?

Any input would be great.
Thanks guys.

Have you got the front one way diff installed correctly? The screw heads should be pointing to the right hand side of the car (if looking from the rear of the car). I made the mistake of putting it in the wrong way and it spun like a top with power on.

I am running modified 12T motor in an indoor track and the rear end was loose to when I let go of the throttle. My one-way is installed correctly. BTW, I don't think people would install one-way backward because you would know when you spin the tires.

Anyways, try not to let go of the throttle, make sure you finger is always pushing the car on throttle.

Where is it loose? entering the corner? mid? exit? on/off power?

Looks like they are using Team Orion Platinum battery bonez or battery bars. It's a pain in the arse to solder wires to the V2's. So they just made an extension it looks like to me. That's the one thing I hate about the V2's... soldering motor wires and shuts suck!!!
