I can get it sometimes to the point where I can "feel" the spur 'tick' when I nudge it back and forth with my finger, but can't actually see it because it's so close... it's still free when I rotate the spur and all, but is there any benefit of having it that close rather than being able to see the space?
Thats how I mesh mine too ! then I pop the car on the track and listen carefully to the sound to see if it's too tight !

Huh ? ..I dun wan a smaller spur ! .....I wanna bigger one i.e: 128T Spur ! ....then I can fit in a 5T cobalt motor !

You running a torque 23T and using a gear ratio around 5.3 right? I guess that's the reason because you using a larger pinon.

If you doing 5.7~6.0 (for rpm 23T), ex: 90/34x2.25=5.95, the pinon just not close enough to spur. Rather than 90spur, I would suggest go for 94 (ex: 94/36*2.25=5.87) which is much safer for gear.

I think you got me confused with someone else ! ....Never had a 23T in my TA05, it was 7T, 8T and 9T in this car from the very beginning ....I need ratio in the range from 8.5 to 10. Currently settled with 8.83 on a 8T.

Maybe I'll put in a 23T at our local TAC 2006 next year, but for now this car is running with the big boys !

Ha.. I did... must because work...

Any problem you found with mod motor? I found with 23T motor the car is not as impressive as while I running Novak SS5800 (close to 19T). It feel a little bit.. too stable with 23T motor, maybe it's because motor doesn't have enough power to drive the rhino...

Thumbs up

Hello,
I am setting up my 05 right now.
I have a question on measuring the droop with this chassis?
I am new to the 04 and 05 chassis.
Thank you for the help!!!
Dave

I generally push the car down once to settle the springs, measure that height from the ground, then with my baby finger pull the end up just to the point where I can feel it getting heavier to lift, when the tires want to lift up. Measure that height, and then subtract the difference in height. To make it even more noticeable, you can weigh the tires down a bit, but not too much to deform the tire.

Make sure the droop screws are even before doing this, so you get an accurate measurement across the chassis.

I have a small metal ruler I line up against the bottom of the chassis, which also gets the ride height, but I guess as long as you find a common spot to measure from it's all good. This method works for all tires, regardless of size. Are there any other methods?

Hi Guys,

Just want to thank you all for posting comments in this forum which have been very useful during the build of my TA-05.

I need to ask if anyone has successfully mounted a receiver next to the motor without getting major interference, if you have which side ? closest to the rear wheels or between the servo and the motor. I have had to go with mounting the receiver on top of the servo, unfortunately this means I can't use the blue bling aluminum transponder stay. Would be nice to get all the weight as low as possible in the chassis.

AHhh ! ....my young grasshopper, learn you must, moderation in everything.
especially in work !

The one thing that comes to mind is that this car requires much stiffer springs than normal. ....Are you kidding me ? ....some of the tweaked 23T here can pace with a 10T easily ! time to rebuild your 23T

Common, SS5800 is faster and more powerful than any 23T, it's normal to feel 23T slow/underpower when you play too much brushless (or 8T )

Stiffer spring? I run softer .... maybe it's 2F deck make the different?
