Just looking for suggestions so I can get it handling like I want it to.
Yes, the car does roll quite a bit, even with stiff springs. You might want to consider purchasing the swaybar kit.

What for ? the bulkheads does not need keying on the chassis, they are keyed by the countersink screws. The bulkheads will never move unless the screws are loose, this is not a place where tweak can occur, PERIOD. Not to mention your idea would be very costly (and unless I was going to make the C/F myself, impossible to do).

this is the problem that I am seeing with the 3-racing chassis. The screws do come loose. Not enough to be seen, but if you try to tighten them with a wrench, they can be tightened. After I go through the whole car and tighten the screws, it is noticably stiffer. I am hoping that the hardened A-parts will help this problem. I hate to buy aluminum bulkheads for a $125 car (especially since they are $50 per). Maybe your chassis will not have this problem, but the 3-racing one does.

I realy do think leaving them plastic chassis braces in is pointless and just asking to flex and cause tweak. As for the screws coming loose, then thats the joy of the soft(ish) plastic of the bulkheads, you could always use a little low grip thread lock on the, though.

I see your point, but then if you want a top end car with alloy bulkheads and everything, it'd be much cheaper to get one that comes with them, like an MSX... On the hardened plastic ones, if the plastic is like the one they usually have for all their TRF cars, it'll be very stiff. Also using regular M3 screws instead of the plastic screws will help keep them tight.

I have some TA05 questions that I hope have'nt been answered too many times already. Sorry to just but in.

1. Do IB38's/42's fit the tub chassis correctly?

2. How does the box stock car do with foam tires on carpet ?

GP37's fit in correctly, and as the GP43 uses the same basic case, they should fit to.

Foams... not got a clue.

Thanks, I believe IB 38's and GP 37's were the same cell diameter.

Has anyone run this car on carpet with foams?

Yep, it's awesome on the fuzz. Do yourself a favor though, if you are gonna run 19t or mod get the TECH RACING upper deck...it's like $20 and stiffens the car up just enough. It makes a big difference, but the car is still awesome stock.

They fit, but it can be tight by the right side of the bulkhead that hold the spur gear shaft. Just make sure you don't have any extra solder sticking out on that battery joint.
