Jam-ehz

Smack me up side the head with a TC4

You are right the standard kit has 2 degrees of rear toe.

I have the light weight suspension on my car with the 1 degree rear blocks. And I'm not really sure if that suspension is an advantage on carget with rubber tires.

This maybe a dumb question but, is it possible to make the TA05 into a rally car?

This wouldn't be my first option for that. It has a lot of open drive line components that wouldn't do too well in a rally setting.

Just got my ta05. I just got past putting the diffs and center pulley in. With everything bolted, I stuck the dogbones in to spin the drivetrain to see how smooth everything felt. I noticed that the belts move left to right between the pulleys, and occasionally rub and make a sound. Is this normal? It's my first belt drive car, and i don't know what to expect. Thanks for any help.

hey there... looks like your using the stock belts that came with the car. if you use the aramid (hop-up) belts.. when you spin the drivetrain.. you'll notice it stays in place.

Key500/andre - dont have a digital camera with me. what'd you need to look at?

I guess you could say just being nosey, also I forgot to ask I plan on going to
Tamiya Sat. what's the gear ratio for a stock motor? Right now I just have what came with the kit. And can you tell me what's a good gear ratio for 19 turn.
I just hope it doesn't rain sat. I haven't had a chance to run my car yet..

Thanks;
Andre

Default Tamiya Toy Fair 11-19,20

so I have not seen any speculation regarding the possibilty of new releases at the Tamiya Toy Fair next week? Anyone want to lay odds that we might see a different version of the TA05 or ??? announced.

Let the rumors start

Red Roll Bars

0' toe on 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.
This is a good base setup and is somewhat close to my setup too.
Remember that setup is only a guidline and will need to be tailored to each person's driving style, track conditions and class entered in.

Good luck everyone...
