I'm placing my order tonight and will have it by next week

You just have to know where to order

Putting my TA05 together, I noticed a problem. I am using universals and it seems like the dog bones are too long and it will effect my ability to adjust camber. Has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it?

What length bones are on your CVD's, 46 or 48mm, if you got 48mm on stock suspension (not the LW setup) then yes, they will be to long.

you need to go pick up either the 46mm shafts or the LW suspension set, cheaper to get the shafts.

i got the 46mm universals and fixed them in my stock ta05. but i found that the stock plastic wheel hubs were touching the outer bearing when the wheel nut's fully tightened, causing a slight bind, enough to stop my one-way's from spinning freely with a blip of the throttle. anyone experienced the same problems? or am i doing something wrong?

actually i already solved the problem by getting the aluminium wheel hubs, so just wondering why the stock parts couldn't fit

you overtightened it

No, not overtightened, the pin drive must be slightly closer in on the CDV axle than on the stock axle, only slightly, which means that when you tighten up the wheel nut, the hex fouls the bearing.

Might be an overkill, but what I did was to install the 48mm shaft to the optional CVD for the TA05. Just looks better with the blue

Oh, by the way, I removed the red foam spacers or else it will be too long.

yeah that's a problem, and there seems to be no way around other than getting the aluminium hexes. another remedy could be to remove some material from the plastic ones, but i was too lazy
