Hey guys,
I just wanted to let you know that we are now offering replacement delrin outdrives for the Tamiya spools. I know a lot of people were looking for these since Tamiya does not sell them. They look exactly like the stock outdrives included with the lightweight spools, and actually have a little more durability.
Even though they look identical to the Tamiya outdrives, these are not technically TCS legal because they are not made by Tamiya...so it is a good idea to save your stock outdrives for any TCS racing.

Here is a link:

Bah, I want to do the reverse and make my 415 centre pullet fit on my TA05. The plastic pullies are crap and melt the second you get a rock in them.

Race report for tonight:

I went out very prepared tonight. Made sure everything was nice and perfect.

When I put it out on the track, the car felt very loose. The rear end kept going out, unless I gradually pulled the throttle lightly. It's not the tires -- every time I race I ran these (CS22). So when I turned at a corner, the rear end slid out like it was about to make a donut.

I didn't have enough steering either. What can cause this?

I also broke the Tamiya servo saver (white). I have no idea how this would break like this. All I did was scrape the side of the board and it broke. How's the durability of this servo saver vs. the Kimborough one?

Another thing was the weak aluminum front turnbuckles. I broke another one (steering). I'm about to replace the front with some titanium ones.

I pretty much have the stock setup but I have 6MM ride height all around, and swaybars all around.

All suggestions are welcome. Thanks in advance.

Seems like the whole car lacked traction.... most likely it's the track itself, the tires or the additive.

I would simply take the swaybars off and move the shocks out one hole on the tower, front and rear. This should give you more forward bite and more traction inn the corners!

Avoid alum steering turnbuckles, stick with the plastic ones, they will flex better and will absorb better. If it s good enough for the pros, it s good enough for you

The stock servo saver is not so great, a lot of ppl run without a servo saver and use a stock xray or other servo horn that has some flex in it.
I ve never had any problems in doing so and trust me, i tested it !!

how long have you had the cs 22 for?

The first thing i would do if the tyre are okay is set the rear droop to 4mm, if it is already at this setting raise it to 4.5mm to 5mm. This well give you more on power stability. If it feels like loose still increase the rear toe 3degree though this will stop the car rotating as well if it has a lot less toe i run about 2.5.

Normal racer are better off changing the turnbuckles to Ti as you won't bend them due to a silly mistake as would with alu buckles.

Ok folks. I have run the TA05 pullys on my 415 and I've had ok results wth them but do i really need TA05 pullys for carpet stock racing? or should i just run the old 415 pullys instead?

Also what do the TA05 pullys do for the 415?

-Lee

The standard pulleys give a ratio of 2.1875 and with the TA05 pulleys they change the ratio to 2.25 (if my calculations are right ) , i'm getting them because i think they just look cool
