Almost got mine ready to run. V2 R with the aluminium rocker arms and racing steering set, and Tamiya Titanium screw set. It'll have a Hobbywing Extreme Stock ESC and 17.5 motor. Anyone got opinions on gearing for a medium sized outdoor track?

54019 is for the front if you have the IFS suspension...
53990 is for the rear (and the front if you do not have IFS)

this is probably a completely noob-ish question, and probably has been answered way back, but I couldn't find much on it. my question is, are there still rear spools available for this chassis? I'm looking to get into drifting my ta05 ver2 and understand that a 1 way up front and a rear spool would help out, but everywhere I looked, the spool is discontinued. Is my only choice to start gluing things together?

the front and rear are the same. so just get one for the front and you will be good. tamiya part # 53877

...and if this is for use with a VerII, get the 37T pulley (54023) to keep the gearing correct. The VerII has 37T pulleys, but the Front Direct Coupling (53877) comes with a 36T pulley and you'll still need another pulley, like my blue monster....

I'm running a 10.5 on stock gearing with lots of torque and cool temperatures. What's a good pinion gear to go to for more top end?

Thanks.

Questions??



Sorry I don't know how to make the pictures expandable when you click them..



I finally finished my new shocks. I got the small springs but I don't know if they're too small.

I had to twist the cylinder nut almost as far as it could go.

Will this effect how it handles?? Should I get springs a size bigger?

Anything helps thanks.

I am rebuilding a TA05 IFS I bought used and have a few burning questions?

1) Does anyone have close up pics of the aluminum suspension mounts mounted. I have a bunch in a bag and want to make sure I use the spacers correct that slip over the suspension pins. In rear right now on FR mount, I have one blue aluminum spacer and not sure what to call it longer thingy plastic ball that fits inside mount and FR side one thin black plastic spacer and short black ball thingy. This seems to be my best combo I can find for free movement of the arm while not letting it move back and forth. I was going to start with zero toe in rear for now.

2) Does the diff need to be shimmed side to side in the housing, without shims it will move a bit side to side, not sure how much is "normal"?

3) I am combining some parts from an old highly modded TA05 one of which is the carbon 4004048 lower plate, any issues, it all seems to bolt up fine?

4) It seems the instruction manual for where to rotate the diff carriers to for belt tension is very loose too?

Thanks

I have used both springs a lot, the small springs compress up or pack up a lot quicker than the long ones, I found them suited to small circuits with tight corners because they tend to make the car slide and react much quicker.
The long ones will be easier to drive and generally suited to high speed corners because they will have a longer slower role in the car. But then again its whatever suits your driving.
