Significantly better...doubt it. I did the carbon link because it has bearings instead of the bushing. Then I replaced the bushings in the remaining plastic parts for bearings. Mine has very little slop and is super smooth.

My servo loves it.

I have do disagree with that...the thing is that any setup works only with the driving style of the one it belongs to and on the track it has been developed on and under the very same conditions. What worked for me, then at these conditions is not sure to work for you, today, under your conditions...

What does the shorter arm achieve? The IFS-R is using this I think...

Your best bet is to ask the A main what the run, then run a 1 to 2 teeth less to start with. if its too slow on the straight then add a tooth or two to the pinion size

hth
cool, thanks. they say around 6 is good for a monster stock, and that would mean I'm running at the same pace as the 6 year old who always seems to pwn me...

tested the ta05 outside for the first time today, the rain stopped for just long enough for the road to dry out. OMG the grip! doesn't seem to slow down through the corners at all. mind you, this is on the kit motor...

can't wait to get to the track

wondering which setup sheets I should be reviewing and also wondering how much the car relies upon 'one off' techniques like shimed bulkheads or some other little nifty trick the drivers have come up with. Any 2.5 toe left, 2.1 toe right to offset mid motor or something equally as mystifying to me?

thanks for any responses
Haven't seen anyone respond to this yet.
Its been a while since I ran my ta-05 on carpet and even then it was stock if I remember correctly. I pretty much ran mine stock with the exception of a set of TRF shocks and the carbon tub. I wasn't using any tricks and it drove alright although the car was a bit heavy. Depending on the suspension setup you might have to shim out the front rims to clear the knuckles. If I wasn't concentrating on my foam 415 right now I would be sorley tempted to try it with mine again. As the foam tire class by me is 13.5/19t.

I assume it is sitting off to the right by 6-8mm though?

No problem

Dont forget the standard spur and pinion gears are tamiyas own pitch, ideally you need a 48dp spur and a selection of pinions for it unless you intend to keep using tamiyas pitch... (they wear quickly so ive heard).

I use a 48dp 72t spur. So on that basis,

72/27 would give you 6.0

72/26 would give you 6.23

72/25 would give you 6.48

72/24 ditto 6.75

72/23 ditto 7.04

Just gives you something to think about

Ps, bin the kit tyres and get some proper tyres on. Premounted Sorex 24/28 are a good starting point usually. As you get up to speed, you might find the 2 degrees rear toe might not be enough to get the car through the corners quick enough with a 27t motor.

I run 3 degrees and it just helps the car a little more.

Keep the diffs at the correct tightness, with just amount of grease and they will last for ages
