Thanks!
ANY HPI body fits the IFS including the Ford GT and the Zonda.

Default Problem securing battery on 3Racing carbon chassis

Hi. I am using a 3Racing CF chassis with my TA-05.

I have been tried using the 3Racing velcro strap and more recently glass tape to secure my battery packs but it seems none is adequate to hold the battery packs for prolonged periods of hard cornering/shunts.

So my question is what methods have 3Racing chassis users been using so far to secure their batteries to the chassis.

Some help would be much appreciated since it is starting to be quite a nuisance. Thanks.

what type batteries are you using? Check out -Penguin RC- website the battery hold down they sell would probably work for 3racing chassis also. Its only 12$ and the Ta05 chassis they sell is very similar. good luck with it.

It's typically better to have the front lower than the rear, or about even. So maybe 5mm front, 5.5mm rear, OR 5.5mm front, 6mm rear depending on how bumpy your track is.

My Ta05 was doing the same thing first time I ran it. By advice from local racers I switched to softer rear spring and harder front spring. The problem went away and is easy to drive. Ride height on mine is set even at 5mm F & R. Try it out.

Hi

Is anyone using a solid front diff or spool on the ta05? i am running a 17.5 class and most of the people using xray's, tc5's are using front spool...

i have tried looking for a similar part for ta05 but no luck so far.. i tried using super glue on the existing plastic diffs to create a "locked" diff but that broke in only a few runs...

any thoughts on how i can do this on the ta05?

thanks!

I do not have the part number, but a proper spool is available from Tamiya.

What surface are you running on?

A one way (anywhere ont he car) is theoretically supposed to increase steering. As to whether it will work for you or not depends on many variables.
Theoretically (again) a one way works like a non permanent transmission coupling. In your case (i.e. center one way) it will allow the front wheels to freewheel around corners therefore the front will be able to follow a more aggresive line in the corner. This can however have an adverse effect on the rear which might not be able to follow.
