too much camber...how many degrees of camber are you running in the front?

are you rotating your tires through out your runs?

Hi Everyone! Im new to the forum here. Been outta 10scale for awhile now, since 2002. But I picked myself up a TA05 IFS car from one of the local gents at our club. Handles nice. But it was pretty slow compared to everyone else (I think that why it handled so well ) It came with the following
-Original Tub (using now)
-Futaba Servo
-Trinity 17.5t motor
-LRP spx super stock esc
-TRF shocks all around
-gen-es 3000Mah 35c Bats (2)

I've made a few changes....but need more

-Savox servo
-Team Orion VSTpro 17.5T motor
-Thunder power 5300 Mah 65c Bat.

Not much done in the chassis itself, but I was thinking of getting a carbon fiber chassis. I wanted to ask you the 'pros' what do you all think I should change as well, and what should be my next priority. Any help is always welcomed. I'll post up some pics of it later.

Thanx!

I'm geared very similar to Everyone at the track. If we are doing our parking lot race it's from 4.5-4.3
On the largest outdoor track, the gearing varies from 3.5-3.8

With the new electronics in: the thunder power bat w/ the 65c and Orion get pro stock 17.5 the car is defiantly much quicker n I was able to keep pace with all the other cars down the straight away and out of the turns. But now the car seems to be looser. So I'm just trying to figure the car out now. But was just wondering with the chassis and electronics that I have...is that enough upgrades to compete, or if there are anything else I should get and put in the car. As far as it being loose out if the turns now, I think it's a matter of playing with the settings of the car and setup. Thanks for the reply

This is quite normal, it could come from your track...

Try hard gear diff on the front instead of spool...

I have a question, does the 3 racing suspension mount from Rcmart are the same to the tamiya one?
More or less... It is the same in the sense of dimensions. The XYZ mount will give the same toe in/out as the original Tamiya XYZ mount, and you can use it with out problems. The difference is in the bushings that go inside the mount. You cannot use the Tamiya bushings here. If you want replacements, you have to use the 3Racing ones for sure. I got one to use in my TA-06.

Do you know if there is any other brand of post that will fit.

most likely...you can try HPI/HB ones - I know they should be an almost exact fit (i've used them in the past on my other tamiya's)

AE/Losi/xray probably will fit, but it might be a trial-and-error kind of thing...ask a buddy with another chassis to try his before buying something that won't work

as long as there's the little nubbin' and a screw hole, it all should work - just remember you'll have to replace both just in case the holes (to put the body pins) don't line up

Thanks for the info. Went to 3 different hobby shops and ended up with the OFNA body posts JL-10E (#39320) front and rear posts in package. They where an exact fit.

Thanks again,
Neil
