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.
Im running on asphalt indoors. Im using a one way already in the front as per advise from the other local racers (I was using spool, spool seemed much more stable to me). I saw the center one way and was just curious. I may go back to the spool soon. I'll give the one way another week or two. With one way car seems to oversteer randomly, I dont really use brakes just coast into turn then throttle out, w the spool i could brake with out problems. Still a newb a bit trying to figure this out. I love the ta05 its awesome, just want to get it dialed in a bit better. Thanks.

I don't know if you saw my car last week, but I think it handles well. When I first put it on the track back in February, it initially had some handling issues. One change that made a huge difference for me was adjusting droop. I don't remember my settings right now, but my TA05 IFS-R has almost no droop.

We are very fortunate. Our track is indoor asphalt. It is as smooth and as flat as a pool table, and has a ton of grip (almost to a fault, according to some).

Check your droop. Start out with the same both front and rear, and remember to make 1 change at a time. It's also a good idea to document your changes if you're not doing that.

BTW, I use a one way.

Thanks Geppetto. Your car did look smooth and fast. Next time your there on thurs, you can school my Ta05. I will start experimenting. It did seem much easier to drive with the spool though. Im wondering if my speed controller is playing a part. It is new and I havent adjusted any settings. It has a drag brake function, maybe its slowing my rears when i let off throttle helping it come around? I dunno.

Robert, This is the guy you really want to talk to. Paul is the TA05 God (bow down). He and his TA05 put a major hurting on many of the high dollar cars before he retired.

Paul also is responsible for a big part of what the Coliseum is today. He's also a pretty nice guy, too!

Thats good stuff. Looks like he is coming out of retirement in time to help me with my Ta05. Hopefully we will meet at the Coliseum Mr.Slotmachine.

I will try to help you on here as much as I can. I don't know how often I`m going to make it to the Coliseum, I will be mostly racing in Gaithersburg

I'm glad to hear that you are returning to RC.

I have left, sold all of my stuff several times, but I always come back. Guess I'm a little like a Boomerang.

Default gearing help

hey guys im about to pick up a ta05 second hand tomorrow. and at the moment i have a ezrun 5.5t and 60 a esc combo. the problem is that i live in Asia and the place i live in its tough and expensive to buy the right gearing for my car so i want to buy the minimum amount of spurs and pinions.
the track i run on is a pretty long swooping track and has a few sharp turns.i need a mix of decent acceleration and a alright amount of top speed.
can any 1 recommend some FDR numbers i should shoot for? or possible spur and pinion combos. also does any 1 know the biggest size spurs and pinions u can fit into the ta05?
thanks for any help

See what other people at your track are using as far as FDR. Then figure out what gears you will need to get there. I use 4.25 FDR, using 35pinion and 66 spur, It works good at my local track, but your track may be different....

Default gearing for 17.5 motor

I would like to try running my ta05 down to a 3.5 FDR .. so I can keep up on the straight! It doesn't look like I can fit anything larger than a 38t (48p) pinion (in view of the motor mounting holes.) That means I would need a 60t spur. Assuming I can get one of those, I think there is enough adjustment on the motor mount to mesh. Anyone disagree?
