I am assuming that is a TRF setup sheet with a TA05 pasted on, but I am guessing from looking at the TRF manual, that you can use all the suspension inner pin mounting brackets on the TA05.

Just need a starting point for rubber tyres on Carpet now.

Pretty well, but I've made quite a few cosmetic changes from the 415 sheet.. no official TA05 sheet has come out, but this one can do for now, for those without the LW Suspension.

Blame TTSO for starting it all..

Jam almost all of us had a different set-up for the car. I think Ian was the only one on the 04 Suspension most of the rest of us had the LW suspension.

Car widths were the main changes between the car. Some ran ultra narrow some ran wider. I know Martin was on AA front and AC rear. I ran ultra narrow in the first runs and it was hell on the tires. I think Rod was running ultra narrow also. For camber link most settled on middle hole with variations of the link vert height.

The new 430 is a great body very stable and a touch pushy. A few of us ran with a touch of an airdam on the nose to give a little more steering.

All in all it was a fun weekend with tight competition. Rod and Martin were on a different course than the rest of us. But even still laptimes were very tight with a .3 spread from fast to slow.

Neato.. what kind of springs did you need on that track? Did you have to use the kit tires?

(On a side note, I see on the TA05 upgrade pamphlet a pic of grey springs.. do they make grey? I thought they went as far as white. Who would need them that stiff?)

There is a Grey and a Purple that are rates above the White. Mainly they are carpet rates I have rarely used them even indoors.

As for spring rate I ran yellows as did most of us. Steve Williams ran White and Blue.

It's neat that just about any setup will work on this car and still everybody would be only a couple of tenths off from each other.

I'm at work right now and don't have the car in front of me so here's what I can remember. Thanks to Martin for the text formatting It's all about the copy/paste hehe

Front

Arms : lw
Toe : 0
Camber : 1.5
Shock Mounts : outside hole on shock tower and middle of the three holes on the arm
Shocks : 400 tamiya with 2 hole 1 red sponge
Blocks : 1X Front and 1XD Rear
Arm Spacing: front block/1mm/arm/the rest/rear block
Ackerman : front hole on the steering knuckle
Upper Link : middle hole 4mm up
Downtravel : 24.6mm measured from top of axles to setup board
Springs : yellow
Swaybar : yellow
Ride Height: 5mm with TakeOff CS27

Rear

Arms : lw
Toe : 3 degrees
Camber : 1.5
Shock Mounts : in one hole on shock tower and inside of the two holes on the arm.
shocks : 300 tamiya with 2 hole 1 red sponge
Blocks : 1XC front and 1B rear
Arm Spacing: front block/the rest/arm/2mm/rear block
rear upright : 0 degree aluminum middle hole no spacer
Upper Link : middle hole on rear upright, middle hole on inside mount no spacer.
Downtravel : 25 mm measured from top of axle to setup board
Springs : yellow
Swaybar : yellow
Ride Height: 5mm with TakeOff CS27

Notes:
CF shock towers front/rear. 5mm clamp-on wheel hex. 46mm swingshafts. Hop-up diffs front/rear setup with front tighter than rear. Dual Rate on radio 85%. Expo -15%. 0.7mm spacer epoxied on steering knuckle to decrease steering throw.

I think that's it for now. The car is fast but cannot be overdriven. Touch a curb and over she'll go woops.

Special thanks to Kilruf for Satoshi's suspension block setup from rcworld.

Hi Guys,

This is still preliminary information, but it will be manufactured by a very reputable company in Japan. In fact, their team will be running the TA05 with this conversion kit at the 2006 IFMAR worlds in Italy next year So the Japan market seems to believe the potential of the new Tamiya TA05
