To be sure though check out the options section and parts numbers at the foot of page 21 in the manual.

Goodluck
oh yes, I missed that, I assumed it was on the last page, thanks

ran the for the first time today, 8.5 motor with 78/32 and full turbo and boost (hobbywing mod software) no problems with the drivetrain at all!

the car handles quite well, but i badly need swaybars f/r to get less roll in the fast corners!

where can i find them? havent seen any shop stocking them yet!

I thought about the leaking rear diff, and came up with sort of a solution. I noticed that the o-ring literally falls into the diff housing with no effort. When you pass the diff cup through, the o-ring spins with it. My 1/8th scale diffs hold the o-ring in the housing, and the diff cup spins inside the o-ring. I feel that the latter has a better seal. In other words, the tamiya diff housing area for the o-ring is a little too big.

I initially loaded the green slime into that area, but oil still leaked considerably. Even when I left it on the shelf, it gradually oozed out. So what I did was that I used RTV silicone adhesive, and glued the o-ring into the diff housing. Left it overnight, and reassembled. It's been several days since, and did a couple of passes, but I see no leaks.

I have yet to do an entire race day with it, but it looks good so far. But, there is a drawback. The diff action got a little heavy, and you might need to use a thinner oil to compensate.

It is such a pain to get into the rear gear box, anything to slow the leak down would help. Any other ideas?

Heard somewhere of people using a red o-ring and the leak went away.

Hi everybody,

First, sorry for my english but I'm just a... French man.

I have receive my TA06 yesterday evening... It's Xmas in July !!!

I have notice the main chassis is bending in the front when you take it alone !!???
--> I believe it's because of the molding form for the battery...

Does someone have the same problem ? I hope for every customers that this bending will disappear after assembling...

--> No matter for me cause I will draw and built a complete carbon conversion kit for this car....

Took the ta06 out for some testing, both lower king pins keep falling out, I will replace the C parts but is there a way to stop this reoccuring?

why would you do that? Do you find the car easier to drive with ball diffs? What about front spool?
I personally dont like gear diffs. I have YET to have a ball diff fail me, so why change that which isnt broken?
