Hey i just got a TA05. The upgrades i have on her is trf shocks and alluminum rear diff cups in the rear. Is there any upgrades i can do to the TA05 to make it more competitive but, not break the bank? Also, what gearing should i run? I want to run 64p(i have 103 64p)spurs. The highest pinions i have are 29,32 and 35t. If i want more speed do i get a bigger or smaller spur? I am going to run the rubber class with a peak racing 19 turn motor and a Novak TC ESC. Thanks. Tekno.

Big Pinion = Higher top speed and less accelleration
Small Pinion = More acceleration and less top speed.

I've just run a checkpoint 19T for 4 meets at two tracks.
Basketball sized carpet track was 105 and 29.
Huge track Asphalt 245 meters was 105 and 41

Can anyone explain what is the effect of using suspension blocks that create a toe-in or out sweep at the front? I guess on the rear, it gives the toe-in for stability.

e.g. FF: B and FR: XC

thanks!

it should say in the manual, but more front toe out means twitchier steering, and more toe in means a more stable front end that understeers slightly.

My limited understanding is I *think* that its to use the lightweight wishbones, as they are not as wide, so you use the X version blocks for the lightweight wishbones and the non prefixed X blocks for the standard wishbones....

Dont quote me on that though!

Satoshi's setup on the Tamiya site uses B/XC and so this this other setup for asphalt. So I wondering if there is a corelation there.

The various suspension blocks enable you to adjust both toe and track width.

What's the best way to position the sensor cables in the 05? The motor protection bar seems to be partially in the way.

In this thread, I found 2 ways,
1) Reenmachine in Post #9574 is under the bar
2) AreCee Post #9576 is between the motor end and bar.

I had it under the bar, but I just had one of the wires break, very likely from abrasion from the track during roll. "In between" looks like bending the wires quite a bit, will that cause the wires to break internally?

Thanks, this helps!

Good adjustment tool, but not cheap if the wrong blocks are purchased!

not an ideal or cheap solution, but the v2 3racing chassis is open plan, with no bar to get in the way.

I don't have it infront of me ATM, but I think there is enough material in the bar to remove a section so the wires can go through it?

Thanks for the help
I started using the 4mm hexes with 2 red and a blue shim to space the tires away from the knuckle. I've since ordered a set of 6mm hexes (TAM53569) from my LHS to try to eliminate so many shims and to get more engagement to the wheel hex and the drive hex.
