TurboJoe I have a question. You mentioned your car spinning out while coming out of turns (turned out to be a radio glitching on yours) I have a similar problem with my RDX only it just spins out on left turns, here is my plea for help on the RDX thread: http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...pp=30&page=346 It is post 10364 and a few others after, I believe I might try looking in that direction, any input?

I'm a decent wrench and a mediocre driver...LOL...I just keep to the basics.

Assuming you have sufficient friction (the right tires), then it's gotta be either a steering symmetry issue (more throw on one side or the other) or a weight transfer issue (uneven droop, binding suspension, wrong springs, uneven roll centers, etc.)

Is it always the same corner you're going left through...or every left turn on the track?

We run an oval on asphalt mostly. All left turns are unstable. I have yet to rebuild the diffs with fresh springs/cone washers. I have them on the way. Thats my next step.
I have checked and double checked all suspension settings, and movements, short of re-rebuilding the shocks (they feel good) I have a good understanding of how cars work, been a Volvo tech for the past 22 years.
It is almost as if when in the middle of the turn, the left front wheel sticks and the rear spins around on that wheel as a pivot. This only happens on power, she seems to react normally off power. It is no huge deal, I have two great cars a TC3 and TA05 to keep me happy. This RDX is a sweet car though, especially on right turns Thanks for the reply. your post gave me some things to think about. AL Mohr

I wish I could see it...

On the other hand, one of the factory Kyosho guys was helping me with my cars the other night...sorting out stuff I didn't even know was wrong...LOL...the sad thing was that I thought it was pretty dialed the way it was.

so what you are saying, if you buy a front one way diff, also buy a center one way as it helps with overall handling and performance?

Also while Im at it, im just wondering why there are so many people wonting to convert the ta05, into the ta05 ifs, to em it seams like a fair bit of mucking around to a car that already performs well if you just add a few upgrades. Swaping over major parts that work diffrently is silly, just go buy a ta05ifs imo

Thats Funny. I am just changing one thing at a time, I will swap radio and receiver at one point. I am using my JR xr2 on this which I usually use for off road may have a glitch I am not aware of.....But my gut tells me drive train since it is on power.

Naaah....unless you had some trick front out-drive bearing that locks up on cue, that's not very likely. Just stick to the basics. Besides, it's almost always tires.

Hi. Im stocking up spare parts for my TA05R. In tamiya USA, theres --- 1
RC Reversible LW Sus Set - TA05/TB02/TA04 #53899 which is super expenssive for me. And theres this ---- RC Short Reversible Sus Arm #53928. My question is, is this the same suspension arm included in the LW Sus Set? All I need are suapension arms.

These are the original TA05R arms:

That full kit (53899) would give you a complete set of spares for the entire suspension system...bearings and all the uprights and axles and everything. Not a bad deal for spares...but more than you'll probably ever break.

careful..the short arms are less used and are not the same as the regular lightweight ones..

airflow: you obvioulsy want the ta05 set (53899).that s the most adapted one.

I'm pretty sure the 53794 has been replaced by the 53899.

The early one had 46mm dogbones included, now it comes with axles only,because the 05 takes 48mm bones when using that kit...so now it's more "universal".

It comes with some other parts now, instead of the bones but I forget what they are...but you need to buy the correct bones to complete it.

Yep...
