Exclamation Question???

I have just finished building my TA-05. I just put it on my setup board to set the ride height and with the TRF shock collars bottomed out, it still won't sit lower than 5.5 mm.

1st question: What do you set your ride height to?

2nd question: Do I need those shock spring holders that drop the springs by 1mm.

3rd question: Should I redo my shocks and put the black o-ring under the piston inside the shock to reduce the shock length.

Please help.

Scarab,

I use the 1mm lower spring holder and the shocks go to 4mm ride height. What shock mount hole are you using ? I use the third down from the top and no problems. Also, make sure you screwed in the bottom ball cup and the shaft all the way in and equal on all four shocks.....and press the spring retainer all the way down onto the ball cup, sometimes it just sits on top and you have to press it all the way down.


Hope this helps...

I'm going to take a guess and say that your using the yellow springs that came with the TRF shocks. The car will only go so low with those on.

Your options are:

1. Screw the ball cup in as far as possible and see what that leaves you with ride height wise.

2. Get the 1mm down spring retainers

3. Use Tamiya short springs instead. They have a slightly different stiffness rating, but its still close.

4. Don't worry about it. Thats right, stick with the height your at, and go out and try the car out. At first I had the same problem, but then I ran the car with the full length yellows on, and it ran so well, that I didn't care what the ride height was at. As long as the car kept running well.
