Jas... "I'm going home! I'll run the TB02 next time... "


(If you guys check out the pics closely... you'll notice 4 totally different suspension setups. What worked? Secret... JAS KIDDING!)

Fred... the track setup today was awkward. The kink had a lot of dots added to it so instead it became a "turn". There were also 3 "S" type turns added on the short chute. So really, it was hard to compare laptimes with our runs before. Wasn't helpful obviously... Although a couple of TA05s *ahem* were a little faster than some TA04s and TB02s (and of course Minis) running there today.

So same question, how's the Washington delegate doing with their TA05s (yup, we have secret agents roaming your area ) ?

Thanks Ian.
Kevin has been extreamly quiet these last few days, ever since he got his TA05 he wont answer the phone. The front door is locked and the lights are off
He has been busy working on the new trac, asphalt is going in monday.


Just to let you TAOB guys know, I spent a year in the Philipines, Subic (pubic) Bay. Still know a little Tagalog, Been keeping up on your secrets

Speaking of the ta05, I saw kevin at the track, and his TA05 on the table. It looks prtety cool, drivetrain is nice and free, and the chassis is actually fairly stiff. A little stiffer over the tb02. It has delrin Pullies (I think they are delrin.... it's a white plastic). Overall a pretty cool design.

Fred missed you at the track today I figured you would come by for a sneek peek, FA did.

The new chassis looks good, hopefully the boat gets into dock soon for the US cars.

Is that why you guys had no mid corner steering?

I got mine done this morning. Been showing it off at the new track (as posted). Still waiting to put elec's in. No hurry, need a track to test on before I bother with a car to try

First impressions; Building, thanks to diffy for the lost circlip. that took about two hours to find. I tried a black one, but it bound up the drive train : fiting of parts EXCELENT : stiffness, suprisingly stiff. Not much to add to make competitive car.

Default Question

How many number of teeth does the stock spur has? Its .6 module right?

What is the internal ratio and lastly how much does it weight ready to run?

Thanks-Lem
