I was finally able to get a bit of track time with my ta05. I pretty much used the stock set-up with trinity 55wt all around, rear shocks in hole 3 on the tower and a front one-way. Does anybody have any suggestions to get the rear end to come around a little more. The car was good, just a little to much push coming out of the corner. I'm open to any suggestions..I do wanna keep it as stock as possible. The whole lightweight suspension thing doesn't sound all that appealing to me. thanks in advance--Al

Rise the real roll center, but be ware you might need to do lots adjustment on other place to correct the side effect.

The car is heavy, so I would start with parts that lighten the car, Titanium Screw Set, I would also get the LW Suspension set, TRF Dampner set, Aluminum Ball Nuts, Titanium Turnbuckles, Graphite Dampner Towers Front and Rear, then depending on your driving style, Front and Center One-ways and/or Front Spool. That's a good list to start,I sure I have left a few items off. Good Luck!

Drive it stock, maybe if anything pick up the TRF dampers, then run it. Add small things as needed. As stated and proved before you don't NEED anything for this car to compete right out of the box!

I ran the car first time fully stock but TRF shocks and swaybars... amazing, pretty much dialed with stock manual setting, only need to put some toe-out on the front for our track.... however, second time my front dogbone pops-off and that was very frustrating... so either buy front universals (not really needed on the back) or put another half of those read foams on each side of the front diff....

Limit the front droop to about 1mm. this will give you less rear weight transfer. If you raise the rear roll center you will increase rear traction, not loose it. A rear swaybar will help also.

Get some universals and a set of tuning springs. Maybe even a spool for asphalt and start from there.

thanks guys for the input

i was just wondering how much does the car weight complete stock ready to race minus transponder. (also please mention which cells was in the chassis)

but is there a problem with the front diff? for most of you guys to say get a oneway or a spool?

cheers once again

James, you will get more turn in with the front one way on our outdoor tracks. Mine was way better with the front one way.

BTW it is not that light. You can get the weight but it costs

Try these light weight parts

If you want to lighten the car further, GO HERE for aluminum fasteners. Just make sure you pre thread the carbon parts or you will strip out the heads of the screws.

yea i know but i think after the vics ill be running in 19T and those strong magnet cans dont help with us running one ways essepcially when the class is very tight, and our grip levels are really hopeless...

im only looking at options at the moment it seems like the evo 5 would be a wiser choice unless the ta-05 isnt too much heavier than the top of the line cars.

do you know much about the front diffs are they reliable greg?
