Bookee TA05 Steering Mod

Postby bookee » Wed Nov 09, 2011 9:19 pm

Moved the lower damper mount to the inside ball connector (small ball connector) to give way for more angle. added a spacer on the upper damper mount to clear a few mm from the shafts. its slightly angled a bit but no problem with damper compression and rebound.

here are the things i did with the steering.
-custom steering link (aluminum 3/8 angle bar)
-move knuckle arm ball connectors
-diy servo arm (long)
-extended the servo to link ball connectors to have it mount on top
-move steering arm ball connector inward to have less servo travel

i think thats all i did.

note: Vid shows the upper damper mount with previous spacer mount which is move outwards. pics show current upper mount spacers.

Nice mod - nice and clean...
And you have had no issues with the shock being connected to the inner ball joint??
Just a mission to get on and off I suppose....

How many degrees of caster are you running and how did you achieve that?

thanks

the first few tries, i had issues. upper damper mount was too far which had an angled damper.

right now, still observing the dampers. since theres still a slight angle, rod movement might not be straight. but in terms of compression and rebound. all is good as i see it.

atm, everythings pretty much stock. no shaved parts. 0 caster. 0 kick up. the first objective was to experiment on a mod that can give me that extra space and angle. up next will be the changes needed for tuning.

how did you achieve that? - you mean the angle? based my mod to the wiper style steering hop-up from the vdf.

Did my steering exactly the same way, easiest mod and best way to do it IMO.

@StuffCC: I think that is because of the pic taken from the back and else, reversed ackerman is no problem, actually it is better then no/normal ackerman. Just not much people do it because it looks wierd/takes away some inner wheel lock.

Can you post measurements of the alu bar that you used to link the steering?
Will it fit in a normal TA05 chassis?

3/8" Aluminum Angle Bar.

I don't know with a normal TA05 Chassis. I'm using a 3Racing TA05 CF V2 Chassis.

I think for a normal chassis you'll just move/drill the holes inwards
