Anyone have pics of their 05 with a Novak BL system in it? I just want to compare how I laid mine out...

Thanks.

Quick pic of my 'R - I'm not the greatest photographer and the focus on our digital camera seems to have gone a bit soft too...

well, I raced mine this past saturday. I can honestly say that at first I was really disappointed with its handling with box settings. I lost count of how many times I spun out or hit a wall, center of steering kept moving left or right throughout the race. I messed with the droop, springs, shock location,and ride height. wow...much better, really smooth, needs a few more tweeks and it'll be really dialed.

What kind of racing do you do that you have to use nobby tires? It looks kind of like a rally car.

Presuming they're Schumacher Mini-pins the provide excellent grip on carpet and polished wood floors for touring cars.

first race,
I had chassis drag issues during cornering. I had to raise the car to 6 mm ground clearance.
I will go to a stiffer sway bar. I believe the stock one is a medium or medium/soft. then lower the car.

I was waiting to see how this one compared to the others (Kawada, 3Racing, etc....) I know one of you guys mentioned you were testing this chassis, have any feedback?

I have the chassis. Used it on carpet. Works very well and great support from Penguin.

Well I'm dusting off my TA05 again. Been working so no racing. BOO. Back to the car, 3racing chassis with some hop ups but my motor always ran hot. I think I have a 34 pinion on my 105 spur. I race indoors on a tight track with stock motors only. Any help guys? What pinions should I purchase? I have a 35,40,41,45,48 and 49. I ran some in my TA04 before I sold it.

Polished floors. Grip pretty well actually. Wear is shocking.

I run my CO27(red springs w/ f-brushes) between ~6.5-6.3 in my TA05. Since it is a tight track, try gearing it between to 6.8 and 6.7. I'm no motor guru but this has always worked for me.

I use 104 spur btw.

Anyone ever tried using something like the 5mm ball nuts (e.g. #53640) to fit the TRF shocks? I'm finding that a) the shock ends have stretched quite quickly from removal and refitting (particularly the lower ends) and b) the aluminium balls are very prone to scratching when refitting with pliers (too tight to do by hand)

Something like these with a screw through...
