With my stock belt tension setting my car felt as though the driveline was a little less free than I like. I then loosened both belts 1 click and it was perfect...very free. I ran it last weekend with a 19t on foams and no belt slippage.

I want to put some aluminum suspension mounts on my TA05.
I know the EVO and 415 mounts will fit.
I race stock rubber tire. Any suggestions for which mounts I should use.

Thumbs up Awesome TA05!!!

Hey all, this is Myx friend. I built the car the night before the big trophy race. We had very little time to practice with the car, but we were able to come up with a good setup for the car, and it was on pace and threatening to take TQ by 1 lap ahead of the current TQ. But as what Myx mentioned we had some challenges with the plastic outdrives and had to modify this to accommodate an o-ring. Both me and Myx blew 2 quali out of 5 because of this.

All I can say is that this car is sweeeet, soo quiet, smooth drivetrain, we used the kit bearings without lubing or cleaning it. The way it carries corner speed is amazing.

Unlike Myx, I built the car with the kit suspension. The only thing I changed were the dogbones and opted to use CVD's instead.

I did win the finals against an MS, MSX, FK05, JRXS, TC4 and Pro4.

I can't wait to run this in the 19t class!

Steven, are you using the stock suspension or LW suspension? If you are running the LW suspension, my suggestions for the aluminum blocks are 1X/1XD (front f/r) and 1xc/1x (rear f/r) if you are using the 0degree rear hubs and a spool (locked front diff).

My belts seem to be perfect with the kit settings. It was just about like I used to run in the rear on my JRX-S.

Also, what should I expect as far as free spin? Will the drivetrain free up over time, or should I be worried that things are binding?
Thanks I found the problem, it was my motor..

Yes, I have the light weight suspension.
Thanks for the info on the mounts, that is exactly what I was looking for.

Hi KilRuf,

I'm also looking for using alum suspension mounts. I know that the "inner" blocks must be bridge. Are there X-series blocks bridge ? Or should I use A or D bridge with "outer" X-series blocks?

thanks

Steve, I would also pick up some spare 1A and 1B blocks so that you can tune the rear toe.

Neosan, no need for a bridge block. You simply just flip the other blocks upside down for the belt to pass under them. The newer 1XA~1XD blocks are designed this way. They are already ground out for use with a spacer (that comes with the block) if you flip it upside down. You'll see if you purchase them. They come with directions.

"Good idea"

Do you know what the toe would be with the 1A & 1B. I'm trying to get about 2 1/2 degrees of rear toe. I currently have the 1 degree rear hubs and a one way in the front. It is a stock motor running on rubber tires car.

If using the standard shocks what is the best springs to use as there seems to be a couple of options?

Thanks

Tim

there's a half degree difference between blocks. then add the toe in on your rear uprights to get your total.

example: 1 deg alum rear hubs with A-C blocks in the rear will give you 2.5 deg of rear toe.

A-A = 0 deg
A-B = 0.5 deg
A-C = 1.0 deg

etc. etc. narrowest block is the 1XD, then 1XC all the way to 1A.....1D.

go to the 415 thread. a guy named "TryHard" has a website link in his signature. you can download the excel file that has all the blocks. and corresponding toe degrees.

hope that helps...

Well I tend to ignore what the blocks toe should be. The setup I gave you with the blocks gives me 1degree toe in on my Integy setup station. But the chart says it's suppose to be 1.5degree toe in. I prefer that or less for Stock class with a spool. So if you are looking for 2.5 rear toe, then the chart says you need a 1B rear block with a 1XC block (if you are using 0degree rear hubs). You said you have 1degree rear hubs... so then you can stick the my setup of a 1XC/1X block. The chart says this will give you 1.5dgree rear toe plus your 1 degree rear block to equal 2.5degree rear toe. Oh, and you get a basic chart when you purchase the 1X# blocks. Hope this helps...
