I did a mod to my TA04 couple of days ago so i could fit in a 7/2 cause with motor heatsink you cant gear the car lower then a 128/30 so i had to file the holes of the mount so i could slide the motor in more.Now i can use right down to a 25T pinion.
Here is my current setup

Front

toe in = -0.5
camber = -1
springs = Tam white
oil = Team Losi 90W
shock pos = outer on arms and tower
camber link pos = upper,outer
tires - takeoff cs22 with med yok insert
oneway

Rear

toe in - 2 degree hub
camber = -1.5
springs = Tam Red
oil = losi 50
shock pos = outer on arm,2 from outside on tower
camber link = lower middle
tires = takeoff cs22 with med Yok insert
centre oneway
saddle chassis

this setup is for mid to high traction carpet .

Like to see other peoples setups for Modified.

Hi guys:

Today I've run my 04-S (is box stock, except for the AL shocks and the optional springs). Is a very very docile car, but I need to shave some time compared with my laps done with my TC3.

This is my setup.

Front:
Al Shocks.
50wt oil
2 hole piston.
Blue spring.
Upper outer shock mounting hole
Lower inner shock mounting hole
Stock camber mounting holes
2 degree camber
0 degree toe-in
Rear gears diff with AW grease (to tighten up a little)
Sorex 28 with B medium insert (sorex too)

Rear:
Al Shocks.
50wt oil.
2 hole piston
Yellow spring
Upper inner shock mounting hole
Lower outer shock mounting hole
Stock camber mounting holes
1 degree camber
Sorex 28 with B medium insert

Motor: 12x2 with a 120/44 ratio (about 5,8:1).

Any suggestions? my track is very large with high speed turns (awaiting the one-way pulley and sway bars).

Planning to run my local TCS (June, 9/10). I already ordered the motor heatsink plate to cool a little the motor (it really gets very hot). Any other necessary hopups that can be interesting to get?
Rear gears diff with AW grease (to tighten up a little)

Corse-R,
Might I recommend the Racing Hub carriers, they improve low speed steering tremendously (6 degree of castor) but I'd guess you won't need it with a big track. Else it is a very major improvement, in the small tight tracks I jam at.

Steve,
Unfortunately for shop owners, nothing on the Ta04 breaks. The plastic top pulley and the belts do wear out, but that's about it.

04-R owners might probably look for:
front and rear carbon fiber shock mounts
hard tuned spring set
Tamiya brand dish rims
lightweight outdrives
lightweight universals
front and center 1-ways
Tamiya tires for TCS

Also might want to carry 53479 Low Friction Suspension Pins (basically hinge pins), I tend to bend them if I use the Hard Reinforced Arms. So I'm back to the nice soft plastic arms

Also, the kingpins are prone to removing themselves, else erm basically I wear out the top pulleys, mostly and the steel outdrives

You know I've never broken one in my life, a friend has and I've worked out the only reason they break is if they are not screwed in all the way and not flush with the main piece, ie shock tower.

Yeah I saw that on the Tamiya English site's new release section.
Really I don't know why Tamiya want to bring out a short wheelbase version of the TA04S.
Oh, well I guess they did it with the 03, so they have to try it with the 04S.

Default kit differences?

I will be obtaining a TA-04 to run in TCS Australia. But i want to know what the differences in the kits are! If i purchase the TA-04R HKS Altezza kit; Does it come with all of the options that come with the Chassis only kit? I want the exact differences please! I believe that the molded carbon/graphite chassis comes in this kit? Does it have cutouts in the base for the cells to sit in nicely? Someone here in Oz has one like this and i want to know if it is a hop-up part, or maybe they cut the slots themselves?
Any info would be appreciated.
