Hey all. I've got a tamiya sensored brushless system (black can 10.5t) that I want to put in the ol' ver. 2. The problem is, I haven't read of a lipo cutoff for the TBLE-01 esc, only one for nimh and nicd.. Will that suffice? Or should I use some sort of external cutoff or alarm?

Thanks a lot.

Huo

i'm not really sure it has to do with the fact that tamiya's mid and entry level kits are for a different audience. even the race spec kits like the 416/417 or evo iv/evo v won't tell you what the manual's setting is for camber or ride height. when you put all ur electronics on the turnbuckle lengths for camber as well as the ride height adjusters are not exactly equal from side to side because the weight distribution is usually biased towards the motor side. so the manual will basically give you a rough starting point so you can fine tune it using the setup tools needed for onroad.

i'm running a TA05v.2 with an EZrun brushless system. got everything all put together and car runs good. but i'm getting a high pitched squeal if punch it off the line. on all of my traxxas trucks this would definitely mean that a slipper is loose. it sounds just like that. seeing as how our cars don't have slippers i've tried tightening the front/rear diffs (how do you know how tight to make them?) i've tried different belt tensions too is there any other way to tighten the belts besides moving the peg in the different circles? on the little pieces on each side of the diff. (hope you know what i'm talking about) anyone have any other idea what the noise could be? i've checked and made sure nothing is rubbing on anything else. or are these just loud cars?

Gho5tRevo, maybe dried out bearings/bushings in the transmission or motor?

Probably a loose diff. Tighten the diff screw all the way to lock and then back off about 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn. To check diff, hold both tires and try to turn the diff, if you can barely turn it by hand then you are there. If you can turn it easily, then something is wrong or your'e diff is still too loose.

Default Tamiya Anti-Ware too thick?

I'm building a TA-05 ver.II R and drive line is totally bind free but there's a lot of resistance comming from those shiny new CV's covered in Anti-Ware. That's some uber sticky stuff and I'm worried about drive line drag. It has some intresting properties but is something as good thats not as "sticky" I could be using?

so i went on youtube and listen to some other TA05v.2s turn out they all kinda sound like that too me. maybe i'm just not used to hearing a belt driven car or something. anyway thanks for the comments.

How much slower was it? Just wondering because mine is slower than most other cars in my 13.5 class.

man i was wishing i had went with the 5.5t motor for a second. it was noticeably slow. so while holding the car i went full throttle. then i went full reverse. there was clearly a noticeable difference in the sound of the car and and like the tilting of the car while i was holding it if that makes any sense. anyway went home. swapped two of the wires and voilą!

make sure your belt tensioners aren't set to tight

It's a bit of a modern Tamiya trademark. Did it myself on my Durga build - and I have been building ball diffs almost non-stop for the past 20 years so have no excuses!

The only other curiousity in a TA-05 build is modifying the servo case. Apart from that it should all fall together.
how do you twist the diff arrow? sorry first time building a kit.. cant seem to find it on the manual...
