Dun make any differences as you are not running a one way anywhere. But I guess nothing ventured, nothing gained. .....go ahead and try then let us know the results

However...first, please test for drivetrain drag by removing the pinion, setting all 4 wheels on the ground and gently push the car. If you feel any resistance to roll, then the wheels are fighting each other due to the dis-simlar drive ratios.

Hmm.. I was told to run -4 degree c hubs in the back because they go best with one ways. But will the A-*A------*A-C work with -4 c hubs?

Sorry, .......but where can you get 4 degree (toe-in?) rear uprights ?

I think you've heard wrongly, that should be 4 degree (Caster) C hubs in the FRONT ! ......correct me if I'm wrong.

Wait.... I thought thats what I heard... I remember thinking about buying a RDX One-Way kit and one of the Corally represenatives said something about getting a 4degree caster block or c hub something like that. But.. Will the stock TA05 hubs and stuff work with that set up? A-*A-----*A-C *Bridged. Sorry for the confusion.

ghostfit..you run your car yet? how's your testing going?

4 deg of rear toe is possible by using the OLD suspension uprights (2 deg - TA04 Racing Rear Toe uprights) with A-E blocks. but i highly doubt you need that much rear toe.

for someone who doesnt have the car yet. you sure do have a lot of questions.

Hey it doesn't hurt to know as much about the car as possible, especially if you're set on getting one. I check this forum like every 10-20 minutes around the clock.

For those who don't have RC World #8... Satoshi tells you how to build the TA05. He suggests front blocks 1X/1XD (f/r) and rear blocks 1XC/1B (f/r) with a oneway setup. Just thought I'd toss that in there.

Mine is on the way soon I hope. Gonna be my official TCS car. I hope they come out with a spool or.. should I say.. direct coupling for it!
