Hi,
IMO, the following may assist you, try it out and see if it works (assuming the rest are good already:-
A): Car pushes mid-corner while on power = try soften front springs one notch and/or stiffening rear springs one notch ;
B): Car too loose mid-corner while on power = try stiffening front springs one notch and/or softening rear springs one notch.
Just my 2cents, cheers.

yes, the different blocks have different lengths, so it will affect the width of the car. you can gain it back at thehub, but it has a different effect then if you widen it at the mount.

That works. I had that same problem and I did both. Altough I traction roll now if I go too hard into a corner.

I dunno, I tried that, and it just didn't help, I dunno, I think it is the front tyres rolling onto the sidewall, so I don't think it is a 'subtle' tuning it needs, I was considering adding 1' toe-out to the front suspension hinge pins, to act as an anti-dive.

Similar story here. Though I haven't tried anything stronger than stock rubber yet(thinking about that after the Novak race), it picked up a win over the weekend here(driven by yours truly), & that was against cars of all makes, even the new XRay 007(& some older T2's). Seems the more I drive it, the closer to finding the right line to get those magic laps I get(still have only made the smallest of changes since I got it)....

Toeing-out your front hinge pins (adding arm sweep) will actually make the car want to dump over the front end MORE. The arm sweep seems to increase the amount of weight transfer to the front end in the corner, and will make the car want to hook more than if the hinge pins are parallel. If you want to add anti-dive, do it by putting spacers under the front end's rear suspension block. Or if you're having traction rolling issues, maybe try raising your inner camber links (at the bulkhead)? I believe that will help the car corner flatter. Just some ideas. Good luck!

True.
On bigger tracks with sweeping corners, i add 0.5mm to 1.0mm spacers the Front-front sus-blocks as kick-up and where needed 0.5mm spacers to the Rear-front sus-blocks as anti-dive.
Do you guys use the same method as well?

Hi
Would like to share that with my blue color belts, i set it loose enough so that without pinion attached with a push from finger, all 4 wheels rotate smoothly and gives good roll distance on ground.
Just my 2cents, Cheers.

I believe I set mine 1 dot looser than the stock manual setting. They seemed to be a little more tight than the stock belts.

wow, all that money spent on bling, gotta agree it's gonna look a beauty, but, buy some TRF dampers! They look cool and will actually do something to help the handling of your car.

have fun.

Can somebody tell me in detail what are the advantages of the Tamiya Reversible LW suspension kit for TA05 compare to the stock (besides the general that it is LW and there are more possibilities of adjustments).
I really would like to know (mostly from those who is using this Hop-Up) how much of an improvement could be experienced by using it on an asphalt high traction track (I race at the Hobby Town USA in Frederick C).
Lat say I got it and replace the original. What set up would you recommend for such track like the C?

Yep definatly get the TRF dampers there are much better. also i would stay away from 3racing carbon fibre it isnt the best of quality but the rest of there stuff is great. if you want carbon fibre shock towers get the tamiya ones.
