With my 05 I have found if I mix the blocks, say a c and an A block for 1mm difference, the car should have more steering at the apex of the corner. If you're mixing blocks to add static toe-out to the chassis then you're doing it wrong; that's what your steering links are there for.

Default Gearing info

Could someone please send me a gearing chart for an LRP 13.5 motor and possibly include the pinion and spur combos as well.

Thanks

Hey guys --

Need some setup help with my TA05-R for USVTA -- I need more rear traction.

Stock shock mount locations per the manual.

Thanks !

Where are you looking for more rear traction? Entry, mid-corner, or exit?

What front and rear suspension mounts are you using? Are you running LiPo or 4-cell? Are you running the stock A-Arms, LW, or Short LW?

I'm looking for more rear traction on entry.

In the front, I have the 1A bridge and 1A mount. In the rear I have the 1A bridge and 1D mount, with 1 deg. rear uprights.

The car is the TA05-R, so it has the LW suspension arms.

I'm running 21.5/LiPo.

Thanks

Thanks for the help
For a quick fix I just used a washer between the wheel and hex spacer. After running that for a few weeks I then upgraded to a thicker aluminum hex spacer made by Yeah Racing.

Take some droop out of the rear. Sounds like you're transitioning too much weight to the nose. I want to say I am running 5.5mm ride height with 1.5mm droop on all 4 corners on mine on carpet. You could also go from the blue rear springs to yellows. That may help but I'm more confident in the droop

+1 for less rear droop

In my experiences, this is probably one of the most overlooked settings.

Default ball differential pulley

Guys, I melted the holes on my ball differential pulley (part no. 53935) is there any better alternative for this part and the stock differential joint (part no. 53849), I'm looking something that can withstand the power of the modified motors.. thanks a lot.

I've not come across an alternative diff pulley, but I can assure you I would be using one if it were made from a slightly hard plastic (the teeth wear away when the belt strips etc).

I would be using these however...
http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=53889

I've melted many diff joints (stock and high precision) with modified motors and can assure you that the aluminium diff joints are worth it. The only thing about these however, is the dogbone end that goes inside them starts to wear a groove in the outdrive cups when running modified motors. You're still going to need replacement diff cups, but maybe a couple sets a year as opposed a set of the plastic ones every month/week.

I run the Blue Alloy outdrives and the 37t pully (18t in the middle) and haven't had an issue with my TA-05
