Been watching this thread for some time now and have a couple of questions.
At the local club where I race they have the 540 "silver can" motor class which I have been racing in with a basic TA05.
In the future they will be introducing a "blinky" 21.5 class where it will be zero timing on the esc but timing alowed on the motors.
As the TA05 has been a good car for me in the silver can class I was thinking of stepping up and trying out a TA06 for blinky 21.5.
A couple of features on the TA06 appeal to me such as the option to run upright shocks on the front and the battery laying up along the center of the car.
One thing that concerns me a little is the gear driven rear wheels, will this create more drag and rob the car of some acceleration and top end speed using the zero timed esc and open timing 21.5 motor?
Also I have been advised that I should not run the included gear diffs and get the optional ball diffs. Would it be better to use ball/gear diffs front & rear or a combination of both?
The track I mainly race on is a small track on a medium traction concrete surface.
The next cars I am looking at to be my "blinky" car is either the TA06R or an TA05R, I am going with tamiya as they can stand up to a lot of abuse (as mine have) and parts are reasonably priced and easily available.
So any thoughts, advice and opinions would be greatly appreciated.
