Best thing to do is invest in some Alloy rear uprights which have the flat 3 position camber link holes. That way you can change the length of your camber link without adjusting the height and you can also make small adjustements to the height of the link also. I make small adjustments to the height of thecamber link which changes roll centre, to gain and loose grip. Its amazing how much feed back the car has with this change. I havent changed my springs etc for a while now, i adjust the height of the outside rear link and the height of the front inside link. Works a treat

I usually have about 2mm spacer under the linkage (pic doesnt show the spacer tho)

Default Spur gear size to use???

Hi everyone,

What's the biggest 64-pitch or 48-pitch spurs can I use with the TA05?? Like everybody, I don't want to get stuck with the overly priced OEM spurs and pinions .

Thanks.

108t is the largest 64pitch spur the car will take safely. Anything larger and your looking at being below the chassis line.

How about in the 48-pitch size?? Got a few of the 48pitch pinions so hopefully I can re-use them

Thanks.
