Depends pretty much on what you want.

Stock Arms = Very much stronger, Suspension pin less likely to bend when you whack the walls but they are also heavier.

LW reversible arms = Lighter and thus car has a little faster responses to input but suspension pin are very likely to bend at the slightest clip with the wall.

My advise is to choose your arms according to your driving skills (or Wallet size)

It look great, but that guarantees nothing .

I think most who has the DJ arms would be putting it on their shelfs queens, they're too expensive to be races on a regular basis unless you're got endless $$$

when using the lightweight sus set, take note of the rear hub's 950 bearings, as these bearings dont take knocks as well compare to stock 1150 bearings.

What would be the effect of lengthening the wheel base on the car?

Its been a while since I thought about messing with wheelbase, so I need a refresher course.

Thanks

Making the wheelbase longer will make the car more stable but you won't get as much steering.

That's for sure. That's why sometimes I don't like the LW suspesnion but I still use it. Also, those 950 bearings wear out quickly. BTW, I haven't broken anything on the LW suspension since I put it on my TB-02 in August. No, I am not a pro driver. Sometimes I hit the rails.

Wheel base is all about how you distribute static weight.
The static weight depending on the end of the car you tune will effect your car's turning ability.
ex: Adding more static weight to the rear by moving your wheelbase forward will make the car looser.
Hope this helps...

Does anyone have a good set-up for rubber tire carpet?

The carpet is Ozite.
Tires are 27 Take-Offs.
I'm willing to spend the money on Hop-ups.

Thanks in advance for the help.

45wt front, 40 wt rear, 2 hole pistons on TRF dampers.

Shocks in kit positions on the front, kit lower on rear, one hole further out than kit on the rear tower. Yellow springs all round.

Red Roll Bars

1' camber all round
0' toe on front
5mm ride height on the front
5.5mm ride height on the rear
small amount of droop on the front slightly more on the rear (increase if back end drifts).

G6 Protoform shell.

If you can, mount the tyres on Inch-Up rims with firm inserts.

Good info

How about rear toe in?

Are you running the kit standard 1 degree or have you changed it?

Actually, the kit standard TA05 should have 2-degree rear uprights, and that's all you'll really need in most cases..

I run all kit parts except for CVD's, RW 48dp spur and TRF shocks and roll bars.

I couldn't see the need to drop or increase the rear toe of this car, only thing I would do (on a stiffer chassis) is move across to allow hinge pin hangers.
