sure... but then you would have been in GT1....

i have a couple '04s that i hardly ever run. bought the Audi TT-R, mostly for the bodies! plus graphite tub, etc... and now i am up to 3 414M2's, and one silver 414M. probably enough parts, bulkheads, chassis plates, i could assemble a 4th M2!

i think thats whats known as "outta control"! people just keep offering to sell 'em to me cheap, and i cant resist...

Lets see, if we are comparing Tamiya kit inventories, I have 2 TB-02's, 2 TL-01's, 1 F103RX (a real man's F1 Car! ) I think 4 or 5 TA-04's, a Surikarn and a standard Evo....I think that's it...

Default MARTIN CRISP TAO4 SET-UP!

I seem to remember earlier on this thread that someone asked for Martin Crisp's set-up on his TAO4. Does anyone know if he gave it out on this thread or any other thread.
If not Martin if you can hear me would you be so kind to show us your set-up? I would also like to know if you changed your set-up later on in the day? You know compensating for change in track temp. Didn't you use the brushless motors?
Thanks

Default TA04 Setup

Maxepower

We all ran pretty much the same setup. Here is what I ran.

Front:

Camber : -1
Spring : Tamiya grey Springs.
Swaybar : Tamiya blue.
Shocks : attached to outer holes on lower arms and shock tower.
Shock Oil : 70w
droop/uptravel : 2mm

Rear:
Camber : -2
Spring : Tamiya Blue.
Swaybar : Tamiya yellow.
Shocks : attached to outer hole on lower arm and inner whole on the shock tower.
Shock Oil : 40w
Upper link : This is the only thing I would change between runs. I ran a shorter arm with a lower role center in the afternoon when the grip was less. I ran a longer arm with a higher roles center in the morning when the grip was much higher.

Martin,

What droop did you have on the rear? Were you running 3 hole pistons on your shocks and did you have any cap inserts? What gearing did you finally end up with?

Martin,
Thanks for the info.
Tamiya never came out with a good pro set-up on their TA04 tub chassis, even though this has been their most popular chassis for average drivers or novice drivers because of it's durability. I love my TA04, even though I have a 414m2 and soon to buy a 415, whenever I go to So.Cal, a local track in Hunington Beach, there is a lot of crashing and bashing going on. I'd rather use my tub 04 chassis just for that reason.
Thanks Again!
P.S. Did you run 2 mm droop on the front and the rear?
