  Eagle Racing TA05 GRT Drift Conversion Kit
Posted by: antinnous - 11-01-2012, 11:56 PM - Forum: Eagle Racing - Replies (13)

Here's is the thread to discuss about the Eagle Racing TA05 GRT Drift Conversion kit
[Image: 3860V2_comp01_blog.jpg]

i realized this chassis is really popular for its layout, and affordability, & still a really great chassis in my book.


55* Degree Steering Mod
Per piling request for my steering setup, here's a full write up for a DIY!

[Image: 8084995543_448e0b8be2_c.jpg]
(Full chassis setup at: http://www.csjunkies.com/viewtopic.php?f...14&start=0)

Mod applies to the Tamiya TA05 with the Eagle Racing GRT conversion.

Parts needed:
-The extended arms (Part# 3860P15) come with the GRT kit, but if for some reason you need them, here they are:
http://www.broadtech.hk/eagleshop/shop/S...id=3860P15
-The offset-ed extended arms (Part# 3711V2P5) are also bought from broadtech:
http://www.broadtech.hk/eagleshop/shop/S...d=3711V2P5
-2x 20mm screw for steering rack
-2x 6.33mm spacer sleeve
-2x shorter turnbuckles
-55* or greater angle CVD's such as Square, OverDose, Active Hobby, or in this case, Eagle Racing (Part# 3867V2-46):
http://www.broadtech.hk/eagleshop/shop/S...=3867V2-46

[Image: 8084820843_860794dd79_c.jpg]

Step 1:
We need to flip both the bearing sleeves and the Ball ends, upside down (ball end for the servo horn link stays the same).
[Image: 8084816650_39c0a98d9c_c.jpg]

Step 2:
Let's space out the main steering rack bridge to 51.50mm.
[Image: 8084814932_848f853225_c.jpg]

Step 3:
Take the 20mm screws and place it on the back hole of the steering rack mount.
[Image: 8084813123_418feb8d29_c.jpg]

[Image: 8084809124_0c28df7467_c.jpg]

Step 4:
Insert 6.33mm sleeve first, and then the original washer that was originally mounted on top of the bearing/under the nut of the steering rack mount.
[Image: 8084815225_1d005c48ab_c.jpg]

[Image: 8084806236_cf52505bc4_c.jpg]

Result:
[Image: 8084806411_57ac1d3ff4_c.jpg]

Step 5:
Take the extended arms (Part# 3860P15) and bolt them to the steering rack arms (aka wipers).
Be sure to screw on the grub screws to prevent skewing.
[Image: 8084791015_d8ef7e91fa_c.jpg]

The reason why we mounted on the back hole and raised the steering rack arms is to clear both the bulkhead and suspension blocks, at the same time still extending the steering sweep.
[Image: 8084802945_eab0b03fc7_c.jpg]

The reason for flipping the steering rack bridge's ball ends is to create maximum clearance.
[Image: 8084800047_7fa5bafb67_c.jpg]

Step 6:
Moving on to the upright (aka knuckle), I shaved the inner side for clearance issues at high angles.
[Image: 8084801564_95013851e3_c.jpg]

Also shaved a bit of the underside, enough to make it flush with the lower level.
[Image: 8084788943_264b8eca1a_c.jpg]

Step 7:
Now were going to install the offset-ed extended arms (Part# 3711V2P5).
The reason why were installing this offset-ed extended arms is because with the long sweep, the regular extended arms end up over-centering the steering link, causing lock up at full lock, the offset-ed ones prevent this from occurring.
[Image: 8084790370_8246d4e11d_c.jpg]

Again, don't forget the grub screws.
[Image: 8084787734_0b780a0125_c.jpg]

This is the reason for shaving the underside.
[Image: 8084786813_25bcaa9999_c.jpg]

Step 9:
I forgot to mention these spacers at the very beginning, but these are needed to lift up the front upper deck.
[Image: 8084797503_a8ef282cd6_c.jpg]

This is so the turnbuckle end has clearance against the front upper deck.
[Image: 8084793092_c200edaa1f_c.jpg]

Step 10:
Since everyone has different settings, just adjust ball end heights accordingly to your setup to avoid bump steer or any clearance issues.

There you have it, make sure to adjust your end points and toe angle!

Tetsujin Realistic Exhaust made from Stainless steel!
These have some weight to it as they are made of stainless steel. They allow for LED to be inserted for lighting/backfire purposes. These come in several styles and really add more scale details to your RC Drift car.

  gopro HD hero
Posted by: robb41488 - 11-01-2012, 05:34 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

this is my discussion on the HD hero. I personally own a HD Hero 1 camera. I use the camera often to make videos of my rc cars. I love the camera and think the world of it. I've used it for hockey, dash cam, and rc videos. Later in this post i will post my thoughts.

This is a video made by gopro to promote there new HERO 3 Black edition. I personally like there videos but its ashame they make them better then they truly are. I have never seen a video look as good as the ones they post no matter how well a person can edit.





This is a video i found comparing the older Hero 2 to the hero 3. I think this is an amazingly honest test. You can clearly see how much they've improved on the camera.





as you can tell im really excited about the Hero 3 and can't wait to get one.

and heres a few crappy videos from my Hero 1.

what are your preference on c-rates. back when i was racing 1/8 off road i really noticed the difference between....25c and 45c. i have only run battery's with a 25c rating in my drift chassis, would most people notice and difference with something higher seeing as traction is low in drifting?

Chassis introduction: This was one of the first modern front motor drift chassis to arrive on the market, previously the only contender was the Tamiya TA-03F. The FS-01D was MST's 2nd attempt at a chassis and it is extremely successful! Straight out of the box it was a fierce competitor without much tuning. This setup is for the battery in lateral position, longitudinal position requires some changes. This was due to running on larger tracks that require slightly more speed.
