@TMYjoy apparently 39-42 teeth pinions fit. See if you can borrow a 64 pitch pinion in that range before you buy it to make sure they mesh correctly.

Question for the TA03 experts: Has anyone tested to see if the M05 ball diff works with the TA03. Im assuming it should since the M chassis cars used to use the TA03 ball diff. Also if it works then the 3 racing spool can be used in the front..

I guess it depends on the outdrive bearing size. The 03 uses 5 x 11s I think not sure about the m05

The M05 / M06 have a little cart ridge that the bearing sits in when you use the gear diff. When you install the M05 ball diff, you no longer use the cartridge. Its a bigger bearing, not sure of the size, my M06 is in storage along with most of my RC stuff

I just looked up the M05 ball diff on Tamiya America's site and it uses 10 x 15 mm bearings...looks like a no go.

In terms of updating our TA03's, I have been looking into either finding current suspension arms that either fit within the current arm mounts or outside. That way we could use current knuckles, carriers, and maybe find some CVDs that would work as well.

I love my 03, but I know there will be a day I run out of spares...lol I guess the next best thing at the moment, is a XV01. I want find a used roller because they are a bit too expensive right now.

I'm trying to rebuild my good old TA03-F, does anyone have one of the FRP lower chassis decks from the TA03 kits? I'm looking for one to use as a template to make a custom chassis.

They do. I was running Yeah Racing TA02 heavy duty uni's in my 03. I believe the CC-01 units fit also.
