Post TCS GT3 class

GT3 question:

has anyone been experimenting with gearing for the TCS GT3 class with the 04? I plan on running the 04R & was wondering what gearing racers have been trying with the silver cans...any help is appreciated.

(worried by the top speed that the local TL01's are able to acheive)

Default TA04R Tub Chassis

Does anyone run Trinity R minus connector plugs (Orion, Integy) with there side by side packs on a tub chassis? Does it fit or will I need convert to battery bars and solder my wires. I just like the convenience of connectors. Currently I have a saddle pack chassis on. I'll be using 2400 and 3000HV cells. Thanks for any help you can give me.

I would like to know as well. I have the Trinity zero plugs but had to convert to bars then solder the wires to them, I rather not do this but I don't want to short the batteries out by having them touch the graphite chassis. I don't use the battery straps on mine, I have some velcro that I use.

I think if you get the plugs high enough on the battery you may be able to use them. The trick is to make sure you have enough of the bar on the battery to properly fully charge the batteries. I think I'll try this out this week and see how it works.

would anyone know if the TA04-SS suspension arms are smaller than the normal TA04 arms?

Thanks in advance!

They are smaller in width not in length but they are also angled to create the short wheel base (measurement from center front to center rear wheels). It also appears more solid in construction.
and there is one constructed of Hard Material.

Mike for the 04R there is a Tamiya Chassis seal which might be hard to find or Associated makes a similar product.
Cut it to length of the battery tray and also height slightly taller then line the battery tray with it.
I forgot this on a new 04R chassis I had installed and left a pack in overnight and 3 cells were really dead and 3 were not. oops

As for the "bananna" style plug just solder them up a touch which can be a pain to get through the chassis or put a bar on then solder the connector to it then lay it between the cells like this
\o/ and it will slip in the car just fine

The 04ss arms are different front and rear the fronts ar 3mm shorter and the rears are 7mm shorter to give a total of 10mm shorter wheelbase they also have a touch more webbing to them

Thanks izzyracer,

would there be short suspension arms for the TA04 other than the SS model?

Thanks you all for your help!

Are you asking if you can buy the SS arms separately? the answer is YES
or are you asking if you can buy a different kit with the short wheel base? The answer is One just came out the "Audi"
I don't have part numbers on hand, maybe later.

What about some double sided tape, used on both sides. The tape will have to be thin enough so that packs will fit. You can leave the shield on the outside tape so that the batteries wont stick.

I haven't seen or heard of the Chassis seal before. Do you have a part number?
