Besercoe in Australia is running a TA05 with a brushless system. He is running all TA05 hopups. The car doesn't seem too bad.

Well if your convinced that the 45 shore tires are not the problem, then theres probably not much help that we can offer.

Traction comes from two places, tires and set up. Looking at the original set up you posted, it didn't seem bad at all. So if its not the set up, then....

I don't think too many people are making special mods to their TA05 cause it would make them illegal for TCS. I've modded my carbon graphite chassis slightly to get my Platinum LiPo to fit. But even that mod wont be neccesary in about a month when Orion releases their new version.

So other than that, it doesn't seem that there is much to mod. It seems that unlike some cars (cough...cough...JRXS) Tamiya got things right with the car from the get go. So hand fitting and modding aren't needed.

Would the shock angles have anything to do with it?

Where do you have your shocks mounted at? Are you using the stock towers or the graphite towers? With either one, the stock locations are a good place to start. But I've always used shock positioning as a fine adjustment, not to solve a drastic traction problem.

Can someone posts their successful TA-05 setup for running the indoor asphalt @ Fredrick's Coliseum? I'd like a baseline good setup to start with so that I can tweak it to my tastes.

Thanks,

Scarab

That sounds like you have them in the stock positions. So I can't imagine that its causing added traction problems.

Just try the lighter oil first and see what happens.

Yeah, I think 25wt would be quite a bit too light most likely.

It may be time for a trip to the hobbyshop. I think I saw you say you were a novice racer, but eventually we all have to bite the bullet and start building up our racing supplies.

Some 40wt or 45wt oil and a set of pre-mounted Take-Offs CS27 might be a good place to start.

Or if you don't have the money right now, the oil that came with the kit I believe was around the 40wt range. So give that a try.

Well... Might as well get the stock shocks out. cause i don't think i have enough stock oil. Is there a way to just screw around a bit and try to make a lighter oil by mixing or will it just get thicker?
