this issue seems to be moreso with the stock tub chassis, rubber tyres and when using analogue radio/servo equipment
oh damn, that's my setup all over

I guess I haven't had any problems as the chassis scrapes every now and again and grounds it. Once I get my setup sorted (so minimal scrapes) I'll stick a grounding wire on it.

Looks like there are at least 3 brand new kits available on ebay. 1 in Canada, and 2 in Indiana.

I simply did a Google search on TA05 IFS-R and performed the same search on ebay.

It all depends on the track; long straights or lots of curves or something in between. I'd start with FDR 5. The attached file shows the pinion/spur combos. If you cannot keep up on the straights, lower the FDR. If you are not fast enough in the corners, raise the FDR. There is no magic number, you have to experiment. The most important thing to do is to check your motor and esc temperatures whenever you change your FDR. I'd check every 5 laps to make sure you don't burn them unwittingly. Good luck.

Anyone got any tips on what set-up i should use for an indoor tight carpet track?

Im sorted on the FDR, but i could do with some help on the shocks (stiffness, position etc), the amount of toe-in and camber and stuff like that, i don't really know much about that so any help would be great

Anyone got any good ideas on how to keep the bat/esc cable off the belts??
The wires from the power wires from the esc are occasionly rubbing on the belts...
