yeah it was the bottom. how do you rebuild shocks? just take em apart and rebuild them, or is there a special process involved?

Thanks,

Juan

Most shocks have 1 or 2 O rings inside them that wear after time, you may not notice the wear just by looking at them, but it is a very small tolerance. They are pretty cheap to replace and would be the first thing to check

mike, if you go with the evoV arms. you cant use the 48mm swing shafts. it'll bind from what i remember. 46mm works. not sure about 42? havent touched my TA05 since Nats.

set up wise.... it reacts quicker.

Mike as for the swing shaft it all depends on what susp arm mounts you use.
If toy run D bridge blocks and toe in rear uprights you can get away with 48mm swing shafts.
as for the how it changes the car, I would say is is more like the stock sups, wich shouls be better for carpet. I ran the EVO 5 arms on MY TA05 at Tamiya worlds.

I have the A blocks up front with the LW arms. I am going to run it at the Novak race in Brushless. Last week it was very good but tire wear was high. I lowered the role center last night and it felt a bit more controlable.
Also getting it ready for the TCS at Trackside. Gotta try to beat Leester once more before he heads out west to Cali!

If you slap the arms on your car they way it is now, you will need the 46mm swing shafts, and the track width will be narrower.

Is it better to run the D blocks and have the width wider or leave it narrow? I never played with the width much.
So D blocks+48mm shafts,ok
A blocks + 46mm shafts,ok

What width do you fast guys run?

I believe a narrower car is more aggressive and wider is more stable.

IMO, if you are using the Short Reversible Arms, should use the A blocks.
