After my first run, I went to pick up the car, and a lightning bolt shot out of it. I knew there was some talk about static, but JFC!

Also, my Futaba 9550 was not at all happy about the static. It made for a pretty spectacular crash. I'm surprised the car didn't burst into flames afterwards. Since spending $50 on a carbon chassis violates the spirit of this budget car, I guess I need to look into the janky ground wire solution.

I've heard of that several times with the R versions....but I haven't, nor has Greg ever had any issues with all the variations we've run. I know some ran a jumper wire from the spur cover to the chassis I believe to solve the problem.

And BTW the carbon chassis is really cheap so....

Yeah, I was hopeful the static wouldn't affect me, but there's no question it did. The 9550 sounded like it wanted to explode, locked hard right. Power cycling the car fixed it, though. I wonder if a BL Futaba servo would handle it better?

I only put about 5 packs through the car, but it didn't feel nearly as crisp as the 416. It got better with each run as I made tweaks, though, so I'm sure I can get it there with time. I'm actually tempted to make it a Trans-Am car, there seems to be a LOT of interest in that class around here.

They should call it the TA05 "Arc Flash" Edition. :-D

We found the manual setup to be nowhere close. Which is funny because all the previous versions worked great with the kit setup. I need to put together my latest setup sheet as the car now is 99% there....very easy to drive, even with a lot of HP! A couple of the big things are the front track rods need to be quite a bit shorter than the manual says, and the car,I foundthe car likes to be softer up front than out rear.

Cool, send it my way. I already shortened the front camber links, raised them all around, went to stiffer springs front and rear (white/yellow) and thicker oil. Each change helped, but there's definitely more there.

Default NOVAK 4.5R for TA05-R

Is there anyone who has TA05-R with 4.5T BL motor ?
Could you guys recommend the spur, pinion and FDR for TA05R with NOVAK 4.5R ?

108T spur, 25T pinion, FDR 9.72 will be fine ?

Depends on the track. You can use any FDR higher than a 7. An average 100'x40' technical track may use an 8 or a 9. Go to the track and see what the others are doing. I used a 96T spur and any pinion from 26 to 30 on an asphalt parking lot track measuring about 120'x50' and depending on how technical it was.

Default Novak EX 13.5 Motor FDR

Is anyone running Novak EX 13.5 motor on TA05R ?

Which FDR should I run with that motor ?

Can I run EX 13.5 motor on Stock class race ?
The spec says it's similar to stock 27turn motor.

The 13.5 EX is a little faster than a 27T. The gearing is'nt that far off from stock motor gearing, go up a couple of teeth and temp it as you run it.

Of course this is for the EX with the bonded rotor (out of the box). If it's been upgraded with the sintered rotor kit, now your in the neighbord of a 19 turn and your gearing is radically different.

Depending on your track, I'd be running an FDR of between 5 and 7. At our local track which has a 24m straight and 80m total length, very technical layout, you might run 6:1 FDR.

5 = possibly unsafe, hot motor etc
6 = nice gearing for 13.5 on short technical track
7 = safe, better accelleration, possibly could go faster

That looks higher than what Novak recommends on their web site, a 4.5FDR with their 13.5.

Everyone out here runs an FDR of 4.5-4.7 with a 13.5. That's what most manufacturers recommend as well.
