I raced the "King of Cal" race a month or so ago and took my out of the box TA06 to a 6th place in a total field of Double Carbon Deck TC's. The TA06 is very capable especially since it has a lower over all weight than the TA05 and TB03.

Next up for us is a 3 hour enduro with this car.

We'll see what comes of it.

I took my TA06 Pro down to TC Hobbies in San Diego. It was an unprepped P-lot track hat is 140x60. I added some TA05 Swaybars and a Rear Ball diff. Everything else is Stock. My car was super planted. I battled with CHen Luc all day. I did, however wait for him for a good 20 seconds or so after he crashed. WE had already lapped the field a couple of times so we were gonna have some fun. Needless to say, he passed me on the last turn to take the win! LOL..It's OK..it's all fun..but at a unprepped track, the car is awesome.

I remember someone said the o ring will follow the drive cup to spin and will leak...

Yeah, that was fun battle! Hey, I waited a few times also, so we're even. Don't worry there are more battles coming in the near future.

SNR: Just get yourself a new kit. We're waiting!

From memory:
Front:
Yellow Springs
40wt
Yellow Swaybars
Stock Plastic Blocks
-1.5* Camber
+.5* Toe
120K wt Gear Diff

Rear:
Yellow Springs
40wt
Yellow Swaybars
Stock Plastic Blocks
-2* Camber
D Block w/.5mm shim
Ball Diff

That's it.

Yes Chen, It was really fun..and looking forward to battling again. I know you waited too. Just a bruised ego on my part. =)
Not bad for a plastic only car!

Hey guys, I bought this car and took it to the fifth round of tamiya asia cup qualiflying in Singapore.It worked superbly and i am pretty amazed by the corner speed the car gave.

Though the car works well,any suggestions i can stop the gear diffs from leaking?

Also,i have found the plastic part on top of the rear hub is pretty weak in the sense that if u crash,the plastic holder will shift and changes your camber.How can i solve this?

I ended up gluing that bit to the rear hub, and then screwing it down. The rear hubs don't break that often anyway.
