just buy the TA06PRO. It will be a great starter for pretty much any racing class you will enter.

I do reccomend 2 mods: Graphite reinforced chassis and the hex-titanium screw set.

Is anyone else running a center one way? if so, do you have a constant clicking from the shaft also?

What is the main advantage of having the Graphite reinforced chassis? Is it for light weight? or is there something else?

If it's for the weight, how much difference is between the Normal plastic chassis and the Graphite reinforced chassis?

Graphite plastics are stiffer & harder to screw screws into.
Weight difference is negligible afaik.

How hard is it to change from IFS to upright shocks? Is it a pain to switch the front end around?

^ doesnt seem to hard just by looking at the instructions. But why you want upright suspensions?

I wonder if the upright suspension works better since I have seen very few IFS Ta06 from a google search.

not hard... bolt on tower & mount, remove rockers & reposition ballstud



biggest PITA would be changing the shock shafts but if
you've got a spare pair of TRFs then its a nobrainer

BTW- are the A arms from a TB03 the same at the ones on the TA06. I bought a TB03 and I am wondering if I can keep it a spares kit.

yes both are "short reversible" same as TA05v2, VDF

From TB03 & TA06 kits they are std GF plastic.
For my non basher cars I like to upgrade to stiffer CF parts
as used on TB Evo 5, TRF417 etc. Arms, knuckles, c-hubs.

Have done that to 1 of above cars, difference is noticeable.
I have not yet done CF tub nor carbon shock towers
as they were not shipping yet then.

no such luck, T is really dragging their feet on hopups
I've been waiting 6mths to get into 06s and only now they've
announced the carbon shock towers... that's my cue

All bling on hopped up car is from Eagle Racing, they're really on the ball.
Especially with the front layshaft alloy mount tube, no flex now!!
(I'd call it mandatory - did it to both cars)

Have used Eagle parts on my 05s alongside genuine T hopups,
they fit fine & work just the same and at a fraction of the price.

if desperate one could try 39t off OTA-R31

same part for both balldiff and spool/oneway,
OTA has a punch out centre like a 45rpm record :P
