From the tamiya site:

Notice When Using TA05-R
A running R/C car constantly charges and discharges static electricity caused by friction from pulley and belts/gears, etc.

The amount of static electricity that is built up changes according to conditions such as temperature, humidity, driving environment, part material, and chassis layout. Some R/C cars may experience mechanical trouble or out-of-control driving due to sudden discharge of static electricity.

We have discovered that the component layout of the TA05-R Chassis Kit (ITEM 49418) makes it relatively vulnerable to the scenario described above, if used with a metal-geared servo under certain conditions.

As a preventive measure, use of the TA05 Lightweight Carbon Lower Deck (ITEM 53893) is recommended. This carbon and fiberglass deck effectively dissipates static electricity generated during R/C car operation.

awesome, thanks for this.

and thanks for the other responses.

not to clutter this thread, but should i put something like that in. I have a lightweight carbon deck, with the carbon diff bulkheads. or as said above does the lightweight carbon lower deck help dissipate enough?

Sorry, not at the moment. I'm just using regular sliontec battery strapping tape in the stock tape slots, but if you're wondering what the little "hooks" are on the edge, they're actually just some extra servo mounts where I screwed on the spacer at a 90* angle to form the "L" shape to hold the battery in place. The black cubes to the front and rear of the battery slots are lead weights covered with black shrink wrap.

mjderstine: Shhh...the orange wire makes my 17.5 run like a 3.5!!!

Actually, I'm still running the stock plastic chassis, which as C&B has shown (and opposite of what PizzaDude said ), Tamiya put out an advisory about static buildup when using metal-geared servos. The optional lightweight carbon reinforced chassis is supposed to alleviate this problem, so you should be okay if that's what you've got.

An old "fix" for those who still ran the plastic chassis was to put in a "grounding wire" from the metal motor mount to the metal posts of the steering rack, which is what you see there. Supposedly, the static problem was more prevalent on carpet. I run mostly on asphalt, but I figured I'd put the wire in there as a precaution anyways (and for the times I do run the car on the rug).
