Active Hobby Carbon Support Arm (1)

Active Hobby  Carbon Support Arm (1)Active Hobby a new product for the Tamiya TA-05 and TA-06 series of chassis. The Carbon Support Arm is a bolt-on option part that allows you to expand your steering angle and reduce/delete Ackerman angle. The carbon support arms will fasten on to Tamiya reversible suspension steering knuckle. It effectively places the pivot pin behind the king pin. This will change the steering geometry greatly and allow for more steering angle. For anyone utilizing Tamiya reversible suspension steering knuckles, this is worth checking out.

Without making drastic changes to the steering assembly, it is often difficult to obtain more steering angle. Active now offers a very affordable option for those seeking more steering from their existing chassis. With the steering pivot ball right behind the king pin, it not only increases steering angle, but also removes Ackerman Angle. This is especially helpful for Counter-steer CS modified drifters.

      1. Yes, it was marketed as a TT01 part before, and i’ve ordered it out of curiosity, but it fit TA05 knuckles perfectly. All i’ve had to do is put some spacers to reduce bumpsteer.
        Here are some pics:

          1. With VDF stock steering rack this is the only way i can fit them. Even fitted “wrong way around” they provide enough angle to make Overdose “wide angle” swingshafts chatter badly, and reduce ackerman to acceptable angle. 
            This product is actually everything you need besides a small file and a steady hand to max out just about any swingshafts on the market.

    1. bought these TWO YRS ago
      they work better on std TA05 than VDF, wrecks VDF’s geometry
      can’t be a TT01 part as TT only has 1 hole in knuckle arm

  1. It’s not new at all, i’ve fitted my VDF with these months ago. And it still has some ackerman btw
