Default Tuning for a tight track.

Here's my question, I race on a tight track with only one real straight otherwise its back and forth all the time. I noticed that I was not rolling well through the corners and would "hook" if I got on the gas too soon. At first I thought it was a diff problem because my diff was loosening as the race went on but in the final it stayed tight, but I was still having issues.

I was wondering if going to a stiffer spring on the front would help or hinder. Also was thinking of adding a front sway bar and going to a smaller rear sway bar. This is my first year racing so I'm just wondering if these adjustments would be going in the right direction.

Thanks.

Try some more front droop first , and make sure the car is not tweaked.

Assuming you mean the carbon fibre one, it is #53884.

I had the same problem of my front diff coming loose while was racing.
How I solved this problem was to put a set of universal shaft(#53847) all round. As I found that the dog bones were getting court on the diff and undoing the diff bolt while going around the corners on the race track. I had this problem and a mate with the same TA05 had the same thing going on when we were racing.

Looking at what the other MSRP's are for the other cars and the street prices, I would think its gonna sell for around $275.
Still waiting for release date.

Hmmm...well, I'd probably order one but...I'm already on the waiting list with RC-Champ for the new M03R. Maybe in a couple months.

That price isn't the US price. It's the Japanese price from RC-Champ. Not sure but I'm pretty sure you might be able to order from them too if you have a paypal account. They are by FAR the best prices on Tamiya stuff.

I know, but even for the UK, that works out to be 25 more than a Cyclone S, and about twice the amount of car!!!
