I'm doing a comparison right now where I have one diff built with the kit O-ring and with a .1mm shim under the o-ring and a .2 mm shim in the normal spot under the pin, versus an xray oring with a .1mm shim in the normal position under the pin. I will give results the next time I race. But as of right now the kit oring feels more free than the xray but less free than the kit configuration.

you will want to use the 0.2 shim with these o-rings

also make sure you are using the brass bushing in the diff case housing and not a bearing.

this should solve your problem.

if you shim too much .. the shim itself will cone and damage gears.
thanks you sir

Hi guys.

I've ordered a pack of upper arm spacers to play about with setup. Currently running kit 0.5mm all round.

imwanting to give the car more steering without loosing the planted rear end so thought shimming the camber links out might be a good starting point.

what would be a good number to start with? I was thinking of going 1mm front and 0.8 rear as per the rc racer setup, but I don't want to change too much at once.

I don't use the arm spacers. I just use regular shims that I use for the inner camber links.

2.0 in the front and 2.5 in the rear this is on med grip asphalt for me. It all really depends on the surface and traction of each track you race on but that should be a good starting point.

less shims more overall grip more chassis roll
more shims less overall grip less chassis roll
less shims deeper roll less responsive
more shims keeps chassis more level and quicker response

hi, I don't know anything about 05 series block excepct they are 0.5mm shorter in height compare to 1 series block. On the TA/TB's front, seems like A/A B/B and C/C are very common to change the track width. Also you may want to use B/a or something like that to have an arm sweep. For the rear, 1xa split block is very common to use on the rear front of the chassis, then most of the people switch between 1c to 1e for rear rear to change rear toe in.

Thercracer has a wonderful article about tamiya's suspension block, here is the link: https://www.thercracer.com/2017/01/t...-ultimate.html Hopefully it helps.

05 block are for the front only. The 05G blocks are the widest front stance and are only to be used with the 419x arms.

See the setup I posted .. thatís a good start for carpet. You donít need to deviate far from that for carpet set up

those are your best bet.. it was the go to set before the 419x was released. The 419x has ones that have tighter tolerances.. but unfortunately TamiyaUSA is not doing a good job of keeping inventory on parts of late

if if youíre running tbe older TA05 c hubs.. you can use this one on the upper...

it has a thicker lip, so you wonít have to add the 0,5 spacer

Just out of curiosity, why the 05 blocks need to be used with 419x arms? I was under the impression the 419x arms only changed the shock attachment hole.

Thanks,

Thatís the recommendation from Tamiya.

I havent tried it but I believe the shocks are not long enough to reach the older arms using the 05G blocks
