Default Servo Saver

Has anyone used the TAMIYA Hi-Torque servo saver (50473) with a TA05? Does it work and clear the belts?

By the way, I am also in the process of changing over from A F/T TC4 to a TA05. Hope I can go faster too!!!

I use the kimborough (sp?) ones and they work just fine. They look exactly the same. I think the kimborough one have a spring inside instead of a metal ring tho. That is the only difference that I can see between them. But if you get the Kimborough ones you need to make sure you buy the right ones for your servo. Best of luck

I would go with the Tamiya servo saver or a horn. The kimbrough servo savers (medium size) are shorter than the tamiya ones so they tend to hit the chassis and the steering link hits when it comes back across it. I've tried using the kimbrough medium size in every orientation possible and it just wouldn't work right.

That's what I thought too...for a while. My Tamiya servo saver worked for a while, then got sloppy. I use a medium Kimbrough now with the side facing the chassis trimmed so it doesn't hit...works perfect.

First thing I would do is make sure your linkages are the same length. Then check your end points and dual rate on your radio to make sure you are traveling lock to lock.

How are you running the car? foam/carpet, rubber/carpet, rubber/asphalt...ect.

I hear ya, I cut the tab also, but the servo saver hitting the chassis isn't the only problem. The medium servo saver is too short, and causes the link to "top out". That's why the Tamiya one is the better option and a horn is BEST option. See the diagram I drew up to understand what I'm talking about....

First thing I would try is more rear droop. It will allow more weight transfer to the front of the car. Droop makes a HUGE difference.

Huh, mine goes lock to lock with the Kimbrough??? Try using the forward holes on the steering knuckles.

Default Toyota Supra TA05

Does anyone that has a TA05 kit with the Supra body have the manual handy? I need the Tamiya color code for the BLUE and WHITE paint.

For the Esso Ultraflo supra they are
PS30-Brilliant blue
PS 1-White

Cool looking body , but not enough steering for me so I used my Ride Stratus body. Much better.

Thank you very much!!!

It's a shelf queen body for me, I'm currently using the Protofrom DNA1 or Mazda 6 bodies. My buddy swears by RIDE... I'll try them one day

I am stil searching for a better Carpet setup for the TA-05,
we found the main balance in the car,
but there is some more gripp to be found in the corners.

Til now the best tires for carpet we found are sorex 24 ,
with LRP grip fluid.

Has anyone found a good setup , or better tires, or better gripp fluid ?

Default TA05 Setup for Carpet

Hello all,

I am going to be putting a TA05 together and I was hoping to get a good starting point for the car with the LW suspension. It will be on carpet and using Tamiya A's and also CS27's.

Thanks,
Italian Racer
