Ask Timmie if he has another 416 oneway pulley to borrow. Swap out the TA05 spool pulley and put on the 416 pulley. That will solve your front belt tension issue. As for side slop, don't worry about it too much. It's not that big of an issue as long as the pulleys don't rub the chassis, which it didn't last time I checked the car. You'll be fine.

BINGO Jimmy. The pulley on my spool is only 36T not 37T. I called Timmie and he had already caught that and took a 37T pulley from a spare 416 oneway.
Thanks for all the help... I feel better now

Yep. That's what I think.

I think what you need to measure is the distance between the motor and the front bulkhead to make sure the tub is not bowed up at the front (since you say the rear belt is OK, we'll leave that alone for now)
Here you go:
the chassis is 98.66mm between the left rear screw hole of the front bulkhead (left side) and the first (closest to the left bulkhead) screw on the motor mount towards the front (LHS). Measured hole center to hole center on my chassis which is carbon and perfectly flat.

EDIT: crap, I double posted. Sorry.

Default TA05 Ver 2

Hi I bought a TA05 Ver2 and was wondering about the synthetic rubber cement for the diffs as it was not included in the kit and I was wondering what did you guys use thanks.
Ryan.

Did you use revell model cement? or any other type of cement? because I called my LHS and they had no idea what sythetic rubber cement was. So I may need to find something else also do the alumminium diff outdrives need cement too? because I tried to get them too but no luck.

Ran my TA05 for the first time last Saturday... freaking awesome
The car feels very planted, yet transitions well and is easy to drive. No regrets on this chassis purchase (and I have been through a few lately )
Big thanks to Timmie (Tim H. - check him out on the TB03 thread) for all the help getting the car up and running.
As for the diff - I used the aluminum outdrives and did not glue or cement the rings; seems to be working just fine... I couldn't be happier with the car

Have to agree, I've been DELIGHTED with how mine's been running so far, & I think a lot of people at my local track have also been impressed by it(been frequently fielding questions about it, especially once they see it with the body off, )...
And I'm in the same boat with the diff outdrives, also have aluminum outdrives in the rear(don't need one up front since I'm using a one-way there), & they don't need any glue to hold the rings in place. In fact, I'd suggest everyone have a look at Jilles Groskamp's how-to videos on RedRC or YouTube, one is on the diffs, & it applies perfectly to the ones in the ver.2(especially for those using aluminum outdrives).....

Can it be used? Probably, but with the hubs that particular kit uses, you'd need 5x9mm bearings, not the 5x10's that came with the ver.2 kit. Honestly, you really don't need to change much from the kit's original suspension, except for material composition(in other words, it uses more flexible molded parts rather than the carbon filled stuff), it's the same suspension as the 416 Worlds Edition. This I think is one of those times to follow the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."......

I just built the diffs the say way as offroad diffs by using grease instead of glue. Also has any one tried the blue armid belts yet, if so do they fit?

Not really sure, but if I had to guess, I'd think they'd be a little tight. The blue belts were made for the original '05, which has 36 tooth diff pulleys & 16 tooth center pulleys, while the new car has 37 tooth diff pulleys & 18 tooth center ones(may not sound like much, but it is a significant change, would make it tighter for an old belt). And besides, Tamiya is already offering low-friction versions of the ver.2's belts, personally, I'd prefer to just go with those.....
