Mine arrived last week, Thanks dinball for that coz here
In qatar, ep rc is on the endangered species list
I'd only be able to race it whenever i go back to malaysia

Building will start after this fasting month
So i have time to wait for the option part for the chasiss to be available
I'm planning to use kyosho's diff fluid rated at 5000
For the rear diff and solid axle for front..
Is the flex issue effect the car handling so much?
What type of red o ring that i've read that can stop the leaky diff issue?

Thanks

I hope you weighed it before the build, I want to see the weight savings... Also does this kit replace the battery cover on the bottom or is it the stocker?

Hey guys got a some questions about this car.

Does it except some parts from the the previous TA05 cars (suspension pieces)?

Is this a good for racing stock 17.5?

Are there any extra's I need to buy for it when a purchase the car?

Is it easy to set up?

I'll try to answer a few but I haven't got my car yet so...

You can use suspension pieces from previous ta05/trf cars.

I plan on using it for 17.5 and I think it should be fine, general consensus seem to be a good running car out of the box.

Aluminum wheel hexes are good to have, no more stuck hexes in removing wheels and falling cross-pins. They also don't deform when tightening wheels.

Maybe a set of sway bars, front spool/rear ball diff as well.

if you have the ta05 v2 you can use the same suspension, sus blocks etc on the ta06 (minus suspension blocks if you have ta05r or ta05 ifs-r)

its good enough for 17.5 class. only option i can think of is the roll bar set and casterblock in graphite plastic (from the trf cars)

a set of hex screws if you dont like phillips screws

then wheel hexes in alu, suspension blocks in alu (not important but makes car mor durable in crashes)

if you get the PRO version, don't forget the Ti turnbuckles for the steering
