I'd say you should keep it under 180 degrees F(& that would be pushing it a little bit, but it can stand that), & you should always try to base your gearing on how it tops out on the longest straight(try to get it to top out about 80-90% of the way down it), & then make small adjustments from there. Oh, & DEFINITELY use a "real" 64 pitch spur if you're using real 64 pitch pinions.....
thanks. i am using a real 64 pitch spur now, though it's a 104 tooth. i still need to go higher with my gearing, only 1 or two teeth though. running great so far though.

how can i determine if my diffs need to be tightened up?

Well, I've always done it(with ANY car I've run) by holding the front or rear tires still & try to turn the spur(just do one end of the car at a time). If you feel the spur slip much, then the diff on that end is too loose. So you tighten it a bit more & then try again until you can just BARELY move the spur(if at all, personally, I still allow a TINY bit of slip, but that's a matter of preference & it just takes time & practice to get the feel for it).....

You'll have to cut the chassis in the stock version. I tried to mount mine. Or you can mount it at an angle.

They are the stock wishbones, as they are far more resiliant to indoor racing, so it is 2' on the hubs and 1' on the blocks giving you 3' total toe IN.

The springs are Kit silvers and Tamiya blue normal length on the back, I also run about 20g of weight in the rear just to weigh it down a little as it would get a little slidey back there. It turns great on that setup with a centre one-way, a front one-way was just to much work indoors and to hard to drive cleanly as the last thing this car needs.... is more steering...

Rubber tire on Carpet setup....

I run the TA05R setup as per the kit build instructions with the following exceptions:

Carbon chassis and carbon fiber shock towers
Tamiya B3 or TakeOff CS27 tires
40wt front and 30wt rear shock oil
Front one-way
5mm ride height all the way around
Droop 2mm front and 3mm rear (both above ride height)

This setup gives me slight on power understeer. The car is very easy to drive. I'm going to try .5deg less rear toe and see if it turns a little better.
With a Sport Tuned (black can) we have managed to get lap times within about .5 secs of the average 19T cars at our small indoor carpet track.

Is there some sort of magic trick that makes one of the servo savers included in the TA05R kit actually fit onto any of my JR or aitronics steering servos? I have 2 JR's and an old airtronics and all of the servo saver holes are too small for the servo posts.

I rigged up one out of the included white servo cam thingies and the servo saver arm for tuning and intitial runs, but actually running on a track with no servo saver is obviously a bad idea.

Anyone have this issue, or am I missing something really obvious?

I went from running a servo saver and having centralisation problems and the saver breaking to running none with steel gears and alloy servo horn, far better.

Default Mamba Max in TA05

I just mounted mine on end and zip tied it in so that it would not go anywhere. It doesn't look pretty, but I haven't had any trouble with it. I haven't cut the chassis or anything like that.

So you have a JR racing servo, or one that the stock kit doesnt fit? Mine has a plastic post, its just too big to fit into any of the holes in the stock kit. I really had a lot of issues getting this servo in place, so I dont want to switch if I cant help it. Im just afraid of running it without a servo saver, because I tapped a curb with my current setup and it popped apart pretty easily. I would REALLY like it to work like its supposed to...:\

What brand of servo are you using? Mounting it on its side sounds like it would work if the servo was too big, but thats not my problem...

This may sound like another stupid question, but what is the advantage of a carbon fiber chasis? Is it lighter, stiffer, stonger, more adjustable?

Also, can you mount the aluminum bulkheads from a 415 on a Ta05?

Thanks

415 bulkheads will not fit/work on the TA05. Tamiya will be releasing alum. bulkheads for the TA05. i think its out this month or next.

The aluminum bulkheads from a TRF415 will not fit on to a TA05.
But there are after market and Tamiya hop-up part number 53990 when it becomes available.
