You cannot reuse the original TA05 one...

you are saying that my bearing should be in between the two white gears instead of at the end?

what do i do about the center shaft? my conversion chassis never came with one.
what problems will i have using it just the way its sitting now?

I have an IFS and decided to mess around with the white belts and 37t pulleys that comes with the R kit.
What mods do I need that are called for in the instructions and what diff parts do I need to run the bigger pulleys?

Thanks gents in advance,

coop

Default Differences and benefits?

On a track, in a stock rubber class...what are the benefits of the IFS over the standup shock design? What I am looking for most at this point is for the car to be hard to kill. I bought a TA05 standard car for my son. He has not driven much on road but has driven the Slash quite a bit. Until he gets his new car, after christmas I am going to let him get some track time in my old TA-03 that car was a tank.

I think the only reason for the IFS is to run sleek low bodies.
Apart form that, there are mre moving parts, so more possible problems.

No, both bearings should be to the left of the spur, far away from the two pulleys. I highly recommend you contact 3-Racing and get the proper set of instructions e-mailed. Then reveiw them and then buy the missing parts. If you run your car as you have it, it will break. The center shaft is only supported by one bearing and that is bad....

If your simply too impatient to wait for a response from them, just look up the instructions for the TA05-MS. There you will see a similar center shaft to help give you an idea of how yours should look....

BTW: With the proper center shaft, you should be able to fit your battery pack. Otherwise you will have to flip the battery upside down, and tape it in a little off to one side...

There are no benefits, thats why none of the pros use IFS...

Good to know, I was hoping that was the answer. Thanks for the help.

Going to have to check this car out before I give it to him...who knows I might retire my old car for something new.

If it was better, it would be an option. In fact it would be on EVERY new chassis. There's ben how many new chassis from every manufacturer since IFS came out?

Let me rephrase my statement.
The 'pros' have no need for the application of an IFS system in their vehicles because they have not space restrictions that require that suspension system.
Tamiya re-introduced the IFS suspension to the market so that they could release what is the first of the lowered hood line bodies. IMO we may see more bodies in the touring car line up such as the Protoform R9 family and more radical that will require an IFS system for 'Pro' level cars.
Now does IFS work better then the conventional up right suspension? No, both systems are just effective for the work that they preform & are fully adjustable.

Here is where my confusion lies:

If you use the 37T pulleys and diff parts from the IFS, only 3 holes line with the metal plate. I don't think with all the other holes, the diff is meant to run on 3 balls. Unless the R uses a larger plate?

If I ran 18t/36t pulleys the white belts seem much too long. There was mention of a modification in the R manual, since I don't have the R I don't know what it is?
