Here's Jason Swift's Setup

"Sorry for the delay. Been very busy this week. Ok, my setup from this weekend's Express North/South Shoout-out is as follows:
Front - Shocks: 30 pound Corally springs with 60 wt AE oil. Middle hole on tower and inner hole on the arm. Hingepin blocks flat against the chassis. A blocks and 0* of toe. Camber links mounted in the inner, no shims under the ball. 1.5 degrees of camber. Stock ackerman positions. 1.5 droop.
Rear - Shocks : 22 pound Corally springs with 40 wt AE oil. Middle hole on the tower and inner hole on the arm. Front Hingepin mount flat on chassis and .5 mm shim under the rear mount. D blocks up front and F blocks in the back to give 1 degree of toe-in. Camber links made as short as possible, inner hole on the hub and inner hole on the inner mount w/ 1 mm shim under the ball stud. 1.5 droop.
CO27 - rolling out at 28. Parma Indigo/Magenta - 55.5
Very high bite carpet.

Swifty"

If you need a setup for the SD, try to PM Seaball. He ran the SD about a year ago. He posted a few times back on page 30-32ish talking about the changes he did to the car. I know he ran 2 top decks the try and stiffen the chassis.

Yeah man it is very durable and stable car for drifting or racing. I have been extremely pleased with the amount of steering and how balanced the car really is. Good Luck.

Bryson, the TF-5 is an awesome all around car. I haven't tried drifting it yet, but its definitely a durable car. If it can take a hit zooming down the straight, it can take a hit drifting through a sweeper.

We're fully stocked with TF-5 and Stallion parts again. Joe Maxey, thanks for the biz.

Cheers,
Jeff

Couple of things does anyone know what the spring weight is? Te numbers 30 32 etc are they just for model numbers or do they spec weight. Also what is the advantages of going with the Shin Ed car, looks like it centers the weight on the chassis more for better weight transition.

Thanks

hey Anemic_SluG

as far as i can tell with the springs is that they are different figures, in terms of rating im not sure
Spring(1.5x4.00x25/Blue)
Spring(1.5x4.25x25/yellow)
Spring(1.5x4.50x25/red)

other than that not sure on what amount of compression they are in terms of weight

and what ive heard that the new shin edition is supposed to give you more mechanical grip while racing

Hi, need help here. I have this problem twice the steering of TF-5 sometimes binds. The car tends to sway either left or right depends on where u turn. I check the servo its ok, change the servo saver already, sanded the turnbuckles(so no binding) still the problem is there? Btw i m using front one way.

Pls help !!!

no.
i mean when you are holding the car off the ground so there is no force acting on the car, does it still happen, could be that the uni pins are getting caught somewhere, ore perhaps the outdrives


also does any one know a way to stop the rear of the car sliding out on power
had a lot of trouble, keeping it straight while racing, rear wanted to come round each time, really had to apply throttle slowly

im running the new shin version with a spool in the front, running on a low traction, bumpy track
