Default Tamiya TA05 IFS R

Hi fellow owners of TA05,

I just bought a TA05 IFS R.

Do you have any set up tips to share with me and would be owners of this kit?

Secondly which is the hop up that is a must?

Thanks

hello, i do not own an IFS R (but I own TA05) so i can't share any exact setup with you. As for hop ups, as far as i know it's already come with all the necessary hop ups you would require for a normal TA05 IFS. but if i were you, i would get the swaybar set and spring set for more tuning options.

and also front oneway/spool depends on your preference but if you're racing 23T stock i strongly recommend oneway.

hope it helps...

Build it. Set it. Run it.

You are going to love the way this car runs. No hopups required, unless you have the extra cash for them.

This car is ready to breathe down everyone else's neck at the track, out of the box.

pardon me how does a spool works? Is that the 18T 1way I should be getting?

front spool will lock the front wheels so they spin together at the same rate (sorry i can't find a better way to describe), front oneway will make the front wheels spin independently on cornering/off throttle but lock together on throttle.

what i meant is the front oneway unit, not the 18t oneway pulley.

in general front spool will be the easiest to drive, i personally prefer this when running modified motors.

if you're running stock (23T) or sport tuned, try oneway.

I intend to fix my kit tomorrow.

What oil and holes set up should I use for the shocks for BK track?

What other setting I need to be aware of? belt tension? Droop?

Many thanks in advance

Hi All,

I am from Mongolia. I have just completed assembly of TA-05IFS. It took me 3 evenings to finish the assembly. Compare to my previous TT-01 this is real thing. Never tried so cool stuff before. Awesome acceleration superb handling. Kit cost me 200$ from local Tamiya dealer.

Still need some setting advise on it. I only run for few laps in my home on the floor and noticed it is having a lot of oversteer. Is it anything to do with rear differential? Because I tried turning both axles and rear one was bit tight than front. Will negative camber help??

I don't have a TA05 but base on your description that your rear wheels don't turn smoothly/easily, I would definitely take a look at that first. Do check belt tension, bearing fittings, bearings condition, sponge pad in the diff cups too thick?
As for negative camber, it will allow the tyre to remain relatively flat to the ground while the chassis roll/tilt during cornering. But speed within your home, I don't will be fast enough to roll the car much if at all.

Cheers!!

HI All,

sorry guys I was away in china for few days. I would like to say thanks to everyone who advised me on my car. I will certainly upload the more picture and hopefully video of my car running. Another question is I thought threadless rubber tires has more grip than one with thread. I noticed it is not the case on the bit abbrasive asphalt. Would really threaded tire improving cornering speed?

Hello

The RC car is getting popular in Mongolia only recently. But I noticed so many people have RC cars in Mongolia. I am thinking to build a track myself in order to collect all RC Car people. Regarding TA-05 I have got still a lot to learn about suspension set up, depending on track conditions. If I organize competition indoor on laminated floor what would be best tire to use? Also what is the proper track size for 1/10 EP cars WxL?
