If your car acts funny after a crash, take the shocks off and check the lower arms. They should just fall down with no effort at all. Better to have a little slop and get a free moving suspension than a binding one.
I agree with the front to back shimming -- to allow a tick of movement. My problem was that the suspension arms were sloppy on the hinge pins. That's what I wanted to get rid of -- i.e. on the rear I had "variable toe-in" lol... anywhere between 1.8 and 2.7 deg. of rear toe at any one time (I'm guessing - I didn't actually measure, but you get the idea).

On an IFS-R you're only really going to fit 70-78t 48p Spurs, anything else is too big.

I prefer the Kawada spurs.

Any reason for that? I'm about to get some 48p spurs too, wondering if machined spurs like Speedmind are worth the extra $... ? They seem half the width of regular spurs like the Kawadas.

Default TA05R's FDR

My TA05R is on its way. Would like to know few things so i can order it early. I understand it does not come with a pinion so how many teeth of pinion should i get? It is 48p or 64p. I ll be putting an Ezrun 5.5 in it, whats the optimal FDR for. Its for racing on an outdoor track. Thanks.

IMHO, the FDR for a 5.5T brushless (6000kV) could be anywhere from 6 to 9, depending on the size of track you are running..
I'd start with the manufacturers recommendations for whatever size track you are running on and temp it from there.

First thing for me was hex head screws.

Those are Tamiya if you want to stay TCS legal. The off brand is only $5 cheaper so I stuck with Tamiya.

48P- tougher gears against crashes, sounds like a "tamiya" car, easy to mesh, less choice in gear ratio
64P- little more efficient drivetrain, sounds nice, hard to mesh, more choices in gear ratio

anything else?

I use kawada or xenon spurs. PRS is good too, but I can't seem to get them. Only can get pinions.

It will fit, but its one of the smallest 64p spur gears available. You run the risk of not being able to get the motor close enough to the spur to achieve a proper mesh. Especially if the pinion you plan to use is under 40 teeth.

dont forget that 64P and 48p have diffrent ratios. the stock gearing for my tao5 was like isk 74/22 (just guessing) and i had to do some resurchin and found 100/30 was close to that stock ratio and it fits pretty dandy so going 64p ur spur will actuly have more teeth than a 48p spur

I drove a TA05 for the first time tonight and was 1sec faster then I was on my old TC3....so I am looking for a TA05 now. Where is the best online place to look for entire car kits....I bet it is covered somewhere in the 300 pages of this thread, but times change and online places change as well, so I wanted a update on this item.

Thanks for the help.
