Just finished racing my 05 at the first leg of our West Canadian Indoor Champ Series. Ultra impressed with the car. I did find a few problems. The car handled superb, and was actually puting down times exactly the same as a fk05. Now, if we had any kind of tech at the race, i think the 05 would have pulled ahead, as my 05 was carrying ALOT more weight that the FK. It was setup for stock, 28mm jacos on ozite carpet, PF G6 body. I also included 2 fans for the motor, and the motor ran strong from the start to finish. Heres the setup -

Front
Jaco Double Pink/Orange
Ball Diff, Loose but no slip
Spring - Old black springs from a onroad nitro car (just run something HARD!)
Blue sway bar
Ride height - 4.5mm
Droop - 1mm
Camber - 1.5
Camber Link - 5mm spacer
Toe - 0
Centre - Oneway
Belt - Loose but no slip (cant remember hole!)

Rear
Jaco Double Pink
Ball Diff, Loose but no slip
Spring - Tamiya Red (Softer handled better)
No sway bar
Ride Height - 4.5mm
Droop - 1.5 - 2mm
Camber - 1.5
Toe - set to 2
Camber Link - Inside no spacers - Outside 1mm spacer
Rear uprights - Alloy - Middle Hole

Missed TQ by .02 of a second, and that wasnt a clean run. The car was perfect. Carried tremendous corner speed, was VERY stable under brakes, and through the sweepers. Also very good on change of direction. I got hacked on the first corner and realised straight away something was wrong. front toe was way out, and it only got worse. The left hand servo mount had broken. I was running a metal gear servo, metal servo horn, and no saver. Ill be on the look out for a alloy servo mount for the 05. Apart from this tiny peice, the car was FAST. Not bad for a plastic 05 against a top of the line FK05!

I didnt change anything from this setup except the front camber link height. I started at around 6mm, and dropped to 5mm for a little more steering. Also just re-adjusted ride height and droop after every second run, to allow for changes in tyre diametre.
Cool will try your set up this weekend, Im kinda close to your set up but not running any stabilizer bar , prolly that's why it tend to push coming out of the coner, what's the center one way actually do? is it good in carpet and what's your gearing --- mine is 98/27 on a 64 pitch with monster pro stock-

Default outdoor asphalt

Thanks for the help and information on this thread.

In Expert Stock qualified second and Finished First with a Lap up on TQ. Outdoor Asphalt this past weekend.

Does anyone have a TA05 blank setup sheet available?...the one previous in this thread would print out on two pages sideways.

thanks.

My preference is to use the std arms for indoor carpet, with rubber or foams.

LW suspension for outdoor asphalt.

The standard arms are built tough...and it's proven to work well on carpet.

By putting a center one way you will have off power steering only, since when you accelerate out of the corner it will lock similar to a locked pulley.

We were 1 lap ahead of the rest of the pack, and were threatening to put 1 more lap down on the rest of the field. The 05 perfromed well again vs the hi-end cars. I ended up winning the race and my friend took 3rd spot. I was 2 laps ahead of the TQ and 1 lap ahead of 2nd place during the mains. We would've taken a 1-2 finish if it was'nt for him traction rolling.

We did 2 minor changes to the setup we previously had, changes to the roll center and swaybar but we kept the shock springs at yellow. The only difference we had was that he was running a slightly higher roll center than what I had, just for us to test out the difference. The rest of it was stock.

Next we would need to try out 19t on rubber.
Yeah another win...alrite for the sandbag team...hee.hee..
Speedo car was definitely faster but too bad mytxxx had too much traction and rolled like an egg with no boundaries...hee.hee.Both u guys back to back...the FK05 sure came up really fast so as the Team TC4.

Just wait till next week.....it won't be a sweet victory any more..

Yeah!, they can catch up to us in the straight, we need to gear this motor right, but in the corners, we just pull away from them. Myx just had to finish the race, too bad he got traction roll. While I on the other hand had to deal with the 2 cars behind me!, it paid off anyways. T'was a good battle!!!

Some time ago somebody posted a picture of a TA05 with this item:

Tamiya "DJ" Pro-Module Rear Suspension System

Does anybody know if it works well on the TA05?

It look great, but that guarantees nothing .

Alwin.
