However, they cannot be compared, the 05 is amazingly smoother than my tt01 AND my Mission!! To take some weight off (I already have TRF shocks and sway bars) I'm thinking on:
- carbon shock stays
- carbon battery plate
- aluminum turnbuckles
Do you think that with help to take let's say around 60 grams off? I plan to buy a Futaba s9550 servo that is 15 grams heavier than my current one

Finally, is the #49360 an metric hex set? 2mm driver??

thanks a lot, cheers,

I bought the 1 1/2" ones , then I cut them down to stock length with a cut off wheel . I f you are having trouble with the ball cups popping off , get the 3 Racing Titanium ball studs, I have not had a link pop off ever.

Default Weight saving

Anyone know what's weight difference between Xenon carbon fiber chassis and Tamiya carbon reinforcement chassis? I believe CF is lighter but don't know how light it's.

Thanks

A TCS race is coming up for the outdoors, on an uneven, bumpy, likely sugar-watered concrete/cement parking lot.. it was pretty low-grip last year.. should I keep the original tub for its extra flex, or try the carbon one?

Would a turnbuckle from the motor mount to the rear brace help in any way?

I'll use A's if it's cold, or a set of B's I have should it warm up..

Any suggestions for springs/sway/diff/oneways? I'll have the standard suspension.

Thanks!

Yes stick with the stock for loose tracks..........

Even all-Tamiya turnbuckles, connectors and balls?

Dunno why they added those extra end-holes on the motor mount, if they weren't intended for attaching something..

If really a loose track then I'll just add;
soft shocks (maybe red rear spring, yellow front), soft inserts with airgap(hpi yellows/ Tamiya greens), long upper link settings, less droop in back then the front, no sway bars (front sway bar if you need even less front grip), spool or diff. Basically you need to let the chassis roll in the corners to generate grip on the outside tires hence the soft set up and long upper links. Everything else run as stock setting.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

I'm not sure if this is TCS legal, but my TA05 is mod specially for low traction condition = flex chassis.

Stock chassis, front and rear brace cutoff, some reinforced rib milled out. Super flex chassis (maybe too flex... )

Hey guys, I intend to run the gt3 class (silver can) when TCS comes my way. I've heard quite a few people talk about a four hole Johnson motor. Are the holes the slots near the endbell, because I think I've got one. What's the big deal/difference with it?? I'm gonna strap it to my ta05 for the June TCS here. Thanks--Al
