Here pics of my new ride. Got it 2nd Hand with pretty much all the bling (Thanks Black-Knight). I just need to find out abit more about the toe blocks. Car is fitted from the front 1x, 1xd - 1xc 1a rear w/-1 deg rear hubs. Can anyone tell me what this equates.

To get really accurate toe numbers you have to use these;http://integy.automated-shops.com/cg...38106413077.f6

Looks nice!

Any chance any of you have the stock servo mounts you can sell/ship me? I bought a car from a guy who shipped it to me in the Tamiya box and it arrived with a hole in the box and he claims all the small parts were in there.
Just sock-em in a padded mailer so they dont get lost again.
I tried to buy them at speedtech, but they are sold out of the parts tree I think they are in.

Thanks,
Ray

I'll have to post pics of my TA05 later one. But I just got in my TechRacing direct 18t pulley set. This changes the internal ratio from 2.25:1 to 2.0:1.... Only down side I see from this unit is the weight of the pulley vs the stock plastic pulleys (which it seems the 415 guys are switching to). However the center shaft is friggin light as hell! It also appears that the white belts are of the same make as the 415 white belts.. and all the other white belts on japanese market cars.. Team Bomber BD.. etc etc...

I dunno how it will perform. I just saw it and ordered it just for the hell of it... Bling Bling!

Going from a 2.25 to a 2.0 seems like the wrong thing to do to me. You will make it harder on the motor to pull out of the corner............

Think about this, the pulleys are bigger, bending and pinching the belt less. This generally results in a freer and more efficient drivetrain. Xray did it, and hasnt gone back. Their internal drive on the original T1 was 2.25. They changed the pulleys to increase drivetrain efficiency, and it made the internal raito of the car a 1.77. You should be able to gear the car so the overall final drive is the same. So your overall acceleration feel should be almost the same as well.

Well, from the front you're looking at 2 degrees inboard toe-out, although your steering links will determine the actual toe..

In the rear, you have 2-deg inboard toe-in, plus the 1 degree block, making 3 degrees total toe in.

For every letter difference, it's a half-degree, XD the shortest block, X is in the middle, and 1E the largest. 1X-1XD is 4 steps of .5, as is XC-1A.

Thanks Jam-ehz.

Are the stock toe blocks equivalent to 1A. Can anyone confirm this. What is also the reason with having inboard toe upfront when the steering links actual determines the toe adjustments.

If you use the hinge pin carriers to put toe in the front what you are doing is giving the arm what they call a sweeping motion under compression......

I agree, I haven't found a need for anymore steering that the TA05 already delivers. This is while running foams on carpet though.
