3Racing chassis update, well, it definately sharpens up the steering.... to show all the slop elsewhere... DOH!!! got the alloy steering on order now though.

I did change to the TRF Carbon shock towers, but must of not got the rear set right, as on the stock tub it was dialed, on the new chassis, rear end was vague, will have to investigate.

Also, the 3Racing chassis topdeck, it needs dremmeling, around the area the pinion is. I tried to fit a 27t up against a 77spur (48dp) and couldn't get the pinion on the shaft.

Well that kind of sucks that you are having small problems with the chassis. Looks like I'll be buying the graphite chassis. Are there only 2 spurs for the car?

I use RW so have loads.

These are just niggling faults to be honest, far better to have that material there to dremmel off than the car be too wobbly, but I am glad I went for it over the graphite Tamiya Tub and the Xenon. I might even make my own topdeck.

The setup sheet is for Rod Canare, GT1 champion at TCS.

He raced in the Past Champions race, the champs all ran rp 30 tires as a spec tire, Novak 6.5 brushless motors and handout Tamiya 3300 stick packs.

Hey Guys,
Every time I see one of these TA05 setup sheets, I notice that they use the X series of suspension blocks. Now, that's where I'm confused. The X series are blocks, not bridges. The manual calls for A bridges front and rear, more than likley for belt clearence. So my question is, can we run the blocks on inner part of the bulkheads? Will the belts clear? I hope I'm making some sense!
Thanks,
JV

Thanks for the heads up Kevin.

The X series blocks have been machined to allow the use of 3mm spacers so you can flip and use them where belt clearance may be an issue.

Now I have read that with the thrust bearings in the TA05 that you pack them full of grease and when they are full pack some more in there. My question is should I use the Tamiya Anti Wear Grease to pack them or should I use the AE Green Slime? I ask because these are the only 2 types of grease I currently have on the bench. Will these be OK or will I be making a mistake to use one of these to lube the thrust bearings???? I know stupid question but I do not have alot of onroad experience or ball diff experience for that matter. THANKS
