Default ta04r brushless

hey everyone, i decided to resurect my ta04r for tcs racing. moneys tight so im gonna race what i got. i already have a 13.5 and lipo since i regularly run sedan and 1/12 scale basically im lookin for someone that has run brushless in the ta04 and need some advice on gearing and what spur gear and all that. due to the 2009 rules i can only run this chassis in 13.5 so i need a spur gear choice. the car has a 2.13 ratio so that should be good too. also any starting setups for parking lot would be helpful cause i havent run this car very much thanx i appreciate the input.

Hey Criag.

Not sure about pinion and setups but I would use a spur in the 104-108 range that should keep you in the ballpark for ratios. Your internal is really close to my pro2 (2.1).

I used to be pretty quick with one of these a long time ago... I can't remember my excat setup but start about here...

Tamiya yellow (hard tuned) springs allround.
TRF shocks with 2 hole pistons and 40wt oil allround.
Yellow swaybar allround.
Shocks fully stood up in outer hole on a-arms.
Upper link in short and low position on shock tower front and rear.
Rear upperlink on higher position on rear upright
1.5 degree camber all round.
1 degree toe out on front.
