you save about 8g of rotating mass when you switch to those outdrives and considerably lighter than a ball diff.
Lol that's what I did at first, and what I have at the front now. Thanks for showing the link very interesting.

The other reason is that I hope the spec r diff will not leak as much as the stock one

TA05
TB03
FF03

however I was recently made aware of the TA06. I wonder if this new chassis will fit my needs.

My understanding is that this T06 is the evolution of the TA05 is this correct? Which for someone like me who is getting back to rc, make sense to buy over a T05 (older platform).

Thanks
its more of a ff03/ta05 ifs hybrid. best part is the Ta06 uses parts from about 5 different chassis:ff03, ta05(and IFS), trf417, tb03d, trf416. My front hubs are from a ta05ifs knucles are from a ff03, rear hubs from a trf417. These are the pix of MY baby. I need to weigh it. I cannot participate in TCS races anymore. lolim racing in RCGT. I have yet to race it since i got my hubs, carbon chassis and abec 7 bearings.

wow nice car.

The stock chassis from the TA06 pro is not carbon but rather plastic?
BTW your car is very nice. I am almost convinced this is what I want. The TA 06 titanium screws, are they hex?

Thx.

Yes they are hex(make sure you buy a Tamiya hex driver) and tge lowerdeck is a soft, forgiving plastic. I'd recommend ta06pro, titanium screws and the carbon reinforced lower deck. The pro comes with tons of hopup options tgat would cost $100 separately.

Ran my right side steering last night. Car worked very well. Our carpet track had just been steam cleaned. The green condition made it hard to get the car "in the track," but it was very promising.

Default woo woo!

Okay I ordered my kit

Ta06-PRO
Carbon Reinforced Chassis
T Screws - where out of stock.

Now the waiting game.

It is really necessary to tap the holes before? can't I just tap them with a normal screw? - In the past when Ive built cars I never pre tapped anything with a special tool.

Also, the TAMIYA HEX driver is mentioned? - can I not use my Huddy set?

The tamiya kit is $54. The 3Racing TA05IFS kit is $23. both are the same thing(except the 3 diff case screws that the tamiya kit comes with that the 3racing does not)

If you buy the tamiya screw set, for some reason only the tamiya hexes fit "right". you can use a Hudy but it wont fit right. (dont ask me how/why, just know that this is a KNOWN issue with tamiya phillips and hex heads.)

as far as tapping, yes. Tap it! Tamiya "non hop-up" plastic is very rubbery. you will strip threads! The carbon reinforced is even worse. Its more gritty!

havent stripped any threads ever in my tamiya kits, just be careful when you screw the screws into the chassi!

if you use std phillips screws then pretap the holes if you havent got a good screw driver, the phillips screws are a real pita!!!

havent tried tamiya titan screws yet (have used 3racing screws on my previous kits and they have been working just fine with my hudy drivers)

Exactly! Save yourself $30 and buy the 3 racing. (you will be short the 4 diff case screws and CANNOT get them elsewhere-Atleast that I could find)

about using to much force when screwing into a new hole, its all about getting to know the plastic i have been in this hobby for 20 years so i havent got a problem with it

tamiya plastic is quite soft, booth the std and graphite (especially compared to the plastic in my 3racing sakura xi that i drive now)
