Thanks for the link to that article. I'm going use Tamiya anti-wear grease instead and hopefully it works just as good. If I'm still getting leaking problems I'll try a thicker oil or switch to the ball diff.

Does it suck up small stones or debris like the TA05 which sometimes jams the drivetrain?
Does the gear cover effectively deflects small stones or debris and protects the spur and pinion gears better than the TA05?
Can the stock drivetrain take an 8.5T brushless set up?
Does it flex like the TA05 or lesser?
Whats the most important hop up parts to buy first for durability purposes?
Any known weak part of this kit? Any mods?
Is it necessary to run a a fan on the motor since it gets less passing air?

Thanks
same question hir, can anyone answer dis please

I can't help you too much. I've never run mine on anything but carpet.
I will tell you that there is quite a bit of flex in the stock plastic chassis parts.
I replaced them with the carbon reinforced parts.

Too give you some idea, I needed a fan on a 25.5 motor in VTA.
Replace the stock battery door with the Tamiya Carbon Fiber piece.
It allows a lot of airflow to the motor.

The chassis of a TA06 has more flex then a chassis of a TA05, chassis of a TA06 is totally different to a TA05.
Every year we have a race at a parking lot with a lot of dust and small stones and the car handles really great (My personal feeling is that the TA06 performs better then a TA05) but it all depends on your setup.
I'm never using the spur/pinion cover and also never use the 06 gears from tamiya, always using the 04 pinions/spurs and i don't have a problem with the gears getting damaged.
But it can be prefered to use the 06 spurs/pinions and the gear cover for driving on a parking lot.
About mounting a fan directly above the motor it's also depending on what kind of motor and gear ratio you are using.
I'm only using a fan when we have a race at a big track and when i need to use a low gear ratio, otherwise i don't use a fan.
Always use a temp gun to make sure the motor doesn't overheat.
hope this helps

That's going to depend on which you will be running. You basically will need to try different settings until the body sits right on your chassis.

I would mount the body and get it where you want it before you cut the posts.

Anybody know if there's some aftermarket diff cups for rear diff that holds up better then the original... Have a FF03r, and it eats the cups for breakfast (same diff as ta06).

Anyone chop up their chassis? I hear of people cutting a slot out under the motor to allow for some air flow
