I agree with this. The provided serevo mount had way too much give.

I run the standard TRF shocks and shock towers, not the SSBB. The SSBB are great shocks once you learn to build them but I don't find them necessary on the TA07. I run the TA07 on low-med grip asphalt so I don't need a super low center of gravity. But honestly, If you want to use the SSBB, go right ahead.
Thanks that makes sense. I'll add those to the list then for when (if) my lap times are getting consistent.

the 07r uses 1b " b" blocks in the front as opposed to the 07 pro using "A" blocks.
what does this do? is it wider or narrower?

Widen the front, I am looking to try running F blocks in font on asphalt

Anyone.......Core Creations, care to chime in? you sir seemed to have yours dialed in Omaha TCS. Car looked awesome! My old TA06 with inboard shocks just could not hang with ya, but it still pulled a podium at least.

PM me your email and I’ll send you my setup sheet. Car had even more in it...which is scary. It was geared super conservative and it never really had to be pushed. That’s what this car does, makes it easy to drive fast if that makes sense.

You guys were able to pull a hell lot more out of those 06s than I ever could!

Would you mind sending that to me too? I'm just starting out with the TA07 Pro and keen to see a decent setup

Based on what I saw, 07 is more of an asphalt car right? seems like people are complaining about the flex in the chassis. If I want to get into the tcs racing at tqrc, will it better for me to stay with my ta06(has carbon fiber shock tower and reinforced bulkhead, gearbox ) and tb03 (literately has everything on it excluding the dcj , lucky enough to buy it from Bill at tamiya track for decent price), instead of buying a brand new ta07 ? The r version looks like a really attracting car...

The R version comes with the BB Damper. What spring sets can I get that fits?

R-kit has 4 super hard springs set (black), which is a special run from the original set Tamiya #42168. You also can run Tamiya BB-spring set (#42278/#42293) but then you need BB-spring retainers (14mm/#42192). Standard spring retainers in R-Kit are the 1mm up-type (#54776) which are only good for the old-type springs (13mm).

Therefore:

- Standard-R-Kit with the kit retainers: TRF spring set short (#42168)
- With new damper retainers (#42192): TRF BB spring set (#42278/42293) and all aftermarket BB-springs (SMJ/X-ray etc.)
