[tamiya trf415 msx mre] anti ackermann mod

Postby beetledrift » Wed Mar 09, 2011 2:50 pm

hi guys,
just want to share how I did the simple version of my anti ackermann mod:

Image

I made the extensions from some FRP that I had here.
I did this because it would touch my suspension mount first. I tried some other things, but then it would be touching the upperdeck.
I have tested it for a few hours, and it works perfect. Only on a REAL hard impact, the plate of FRP moves, but that one was really nasty hit on a wall :lol:

I have a high torque servo saver now, with alu horn. doesn't have play :up:

Won´t your steering rods hit the upper deck, when running over a bump / using your suspension to the max? - I tried a direct coupling once on my TA05 but had to put the steering joints way up above the belt to make it work without rubbing. - Btw, glad to see someone running as much weight in front as I do ^^.

by chattering you mean the vibrations if you steer? sorry, english is not my first language *-|

I use tl01 universals. I used a dremel to get rid of the chattering. It doesn't vibrate anymore ;)
I also get a fairly amount of lock :up:
