It was the same with the TC3, TC4, Schumacher ST2000, etc. All those had some imbalance issues depending on your running gear and batteries.

You learn to add weight to the light side and adjust pre-load/tweak as needed to level out the ride.

C'est la vie!

Hi,

The best resource for the hop-ups I've found is the tamiya usa site link below:

I would really like some more information on this also... A friend of mine wants to use aluminium toe blocks for his standard suspension 05. Did tamiya ever supply this information in the manuals?? I remember seeing something but i was never confident that i would make the right decision.

It's in some of the manuals and not in others. It's in the TA05IFS manual but not in the TA05R manual.

Short course on suspension blocks:
A=0 degrees
B=1 "
C=2 "
D=3 "

After putting the car on a set-up board, ajusting the preload on each shock to have even ride height would have one messed up car. It's even for the most part, with minor preload ajustments. I need to add weight to the right rear...that should balance it out and make it easier to set it up. As far as droop, I just have it so I can lift up the the car with the tires still touching the ground with the suspension unloaded slightly. I tried getting the droop screws as close as I could in the manual, and ajusted so they are even on both sides.

That makes the most sense to add the weight. I know that adding weight just doesn't sound right but it is the best way to balance the side to side variation. My brushed set-up doesn't need the weight but the BL does.

Ya, adding weight does sound backwards, but should help greatly. Thanks for all the help.

Hy there!

Does anyone know if the new NSX2007 Body from the IFS fit on a normal TA05 or an other "normal" Tamoya chassis?

Greetings from Austria

No, Nein, Nyet; it will not fit the normal upright chassis, that is the reason for the IFS (lower front profile).

Default IFS?

For the guys running IFS conversions from a regular 05 or an R; can you actually use the regular LW knuckles and C hubs (that comes with the R kit) in the front? or do you HAVE to use the IFS C hubs and knuckles?

You dont have to run the IFS knuckles...I ran the conversion and had no problems with the regular type r parts.
