If the track is open and flowing, use a 1 way, if its tight and technical you are better off with a spool. But if you're using foams keep the diff in the front.

I don't run a oneway at present, our track is tight and technical - 2 diffs.
When I have used it I found that breaking while tuning was a recipe for disaster.
It gives you a hell of a lot of turn in.
It allows you to power on earlier in the turn and the spool action under power effectively pulls you out of the corner.

94,

I understand what your getting at. If you turn the wheels with your hands you get that effect (this is off power). However, if you turn the shaft it's a spool with no slip (this is on power).

It is easier to see when messing with a belt drive car as the shaft is rather hard to turn.

Hold both front wheels with your hands, and pull the car forwards with the rears touching the ground and you will feel it. They are definetely locked when the power is down.

There is a good discussion on the effects of solid axles and one way bearings in the back of the manual for the hudy "All in one setup system".
It can be downloaded from http://www.hudy.net/flash_stuff/all_...et-up_book.zip

Default Setup help needed

Hi Guys, posting for a friend here (Hi Roop )

I am convinced that the info has been posted somewhere in one of the past 278 pages, but frankly I would be very grateful if someone could share a TA05R general setup for rubbers on carpet, 23T motors (a 19T setup would probably do too), with one-way (ie technical indoor tracks), without a too agressive steering (for a DTM beginner )? Thanks a lot yall

My understanding is that the suspension geometry of the 05R is also very close to that of the 415, but which version (there's been so many of them)?

thanks a lot yall

Well...I've done it. I've got a TA-05R coming this week. I have raced a TB-02(almost R) for two race seasons(and two TCS events)...and I just need a better car. I drove my buddies TA-05, and I loved the way it drove....so smooth!!! I now run a 13.5 brushless...and my old TB-02 felt too twitchy on a tight carpet track. I'll let you guys know how the build went...and I'm racing it March 1st with no practice.

Would also like to know what Lonestar has asked. I have an idea because of my buddy...40wt, two hole pistons, yellow or red swaybar up front depending on grip...sound good?

I don't think they use foam tires at the Tamiya track, so you shouldn't have to worry about rollout...

Hi Guys - if you don't feel like posting a full setup, which I fully understand, can you please at least point me to an online resource that does have setups for the TA05R? Couldn't find one...

Answering the "similarity" question about the 415 would really help too Thanks!

on the tamiya website they have a setup from a pretty good racer. And it is a very good setup to start with. What do you mean by the ta05r is very close to a 415 suspension?

cool - will look on the website then, never checked a setup sheet from there thanks!

My understanding of the TA05 is that it shares a lot of its suspension geometry as well as suspension parts with the 415 - however there are sooooo many 415 versions in the open that it's tough to know which one! Thanks!

By rollout I meant final drive ratio. Or even pinion/spur combos for a 29T Motor would be helpful.
