Thanks.....I got my ta05 down to a 10.3 fast lap the Corally and x ray guys were that fast too. But I'm looking for just that little extra turn in. I put a 1-b mount on the front sus. pins and that made a big difference, believe it or not I also went to 2 deg. rear hubs with a 1-d pin holder and the car got even better in the turns then before.

You running a spool or oneway? Also, why not try the LW suspension? I know it's not as durable as the standard suspension... but at least you have the option of 2 or 4 degree caster blocks... As for more turnin... you tried raising up the front inner camber links? Are you turning in offpower? If so.. try some anti squat in the rear... Hmmm maybe start by raising up the front rear block 1mm... then try 2mm....

My cousin and his team ran a TA-05 @ the Tamiya Enduro race earlier today and other than a bad motor and some 'retarded' servo problem (unrelated to the chassis itself) after 3 hours of non-stop driving, they managed only the following:

- 3 broken outdrives (stock diffs, problem only happened in the rear)

...the rest of the car held up well, he said.

Take it for what it's worth =)

The only thing I haven't tried is anti squat .I have tried it before on other cars, and found it to turn in too much late in the corner kinda like a snap turn...........

The 45th Shizuoka Hobby Show is May 16th - 21st. That would be my guess where it is.

That is an awesome looking piece of gear, would be good to see the carbon fibre completed with some of the carbon wing braces, i think 3 racing and square both make those. Well done looks awesome
