hi all

I have this big problem with my wheels rubbing on the ball cups on the front of the car. I rubbed a hole in one ball cup and other has got a big cut in it. Is shimming the only answer for this issue? I have heard that if you carve out the inner edge of the tire that helps as well.

Any other options?

Thumbs up

I just wanted to tell you all that David Jun, a Tamiya factory racer, came out last Sunday to our monthly parking lot club race in Orange County, CA and "spanked" all the local experts in the Modified class with a basically stock TA05R. The only upgrades that I saw on his car were the carbon fiber tub chassis, carbon fiber shock towers and special rear arms that I've never seen before. I could use more practice but still managed to get a 3rd place in 19T behind a couple of local hot shots. If your set up is good, the TA05R is awesome and real easy to drive for newbies to expert.

Dave ran the same car at the past champs race in the TCS finals.
The rear arms is the Dave Jun hop up that was designed for the 414 and the 415. There made out of aluminum and they have been available for quite somtime. Dave's car was the first one I've seem run on a TA05. The only downside if any is their aluminum and they bend if you hit a dot hard, so Dave doesn't have this problem. They do work. I've used them on my 415 but once I bent them I didn't replace the arms. I still have the uprights and springs. They should make them out of a hard composite plastic.
Just my 2$
P.S. Ultimate Hobby had them last time I was there!

Last year, my girlfriend and I went on a vacation to California and we stopped by Ultimate Hobbies. I was impressed because aside from the loads of rc stuff they had stocked, they also had lots of crafting supplies which kept the woman busy while I checked out their rc selection.

The centre one way is a more subtle version of the front one way, it lets the front wheels go into corners without drive (off power). its useful on flowing tracks.

The front one way comes as a complete kit, part # 53833.

Which one is more effective? How does the front one-way compare to a ball diff or a spool? I'm not educated about this kind of stuff...

The front one way is more effective/efficient than the centre one way, as it is closer to the driveshafts.

The ball diff is slowing the car down as you let off the throttle, as the differential has more friction within it when the car slows, over a one way bearing which allows the front transmission to free wheel

The spool is a direct link between the front wheels/driveshafts and the belt. This meens it will not allow the wheels to turn in opposite directions when one is turned (like a diff will).

The result of this is more power on steering which meens you can drive out the corners faster, which makes it useful on technical track layouts

The downside is that your transmission will wear quicker.

So, the most effective one really depends on which track youre racing at.

1 way bearings tend to suit larger,flowing tracks.
The spool will be more suited to technical tracks, and the diff for foams.

NEVER use a spool with foam as the tyres wear unevenly and as a result you will strain the transmission.

thanks for the help tc3team. i run on a technical parking lot track using CS27s and a CO27. i guess my best bet would be to use a spool. where can i get one here in the states?
