Default Interesting

I guess these cars are still going strong.
I am considering (although I have yet to drive it) selling my TA06 PRO and getting a TA05 VER2. I really like the tub chassis.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Mike this link is very interesting. The car sure looks nice, but when I look at the base TA05 it has crappy links and crappy shocks and I keep thinking that I will need a lot more than just the exotek conversion to get to what I see in your picture at Exotek. Do you have a full grocery list to build the car I see there? Or is there a version of the TA05 that actually has the nice blue bits on it?

there are "Type R" kits to the TA05...eg TA05v2-R
or with the earlier car TA05-R & TA05IFS-R; there's also TA05MS

the R kits come with TRF shocks and CVDs,
sometimes stiffer plastics or lower-friction drivetrain.


Regardless if you're going to buy any TA05 to fully hopup with CF chassis etc,
unless you really have to run a TA05 its usually cheaper to buy a TRF417 etc.

Take his advice, making a TA05 V2 Completely Pro level aka CF and other exotc parts you better of buying a Pro Type Chassis with all the carbon fiber already on it. But if you like experimenting be ready for to drop some cash as WC is saying you better off with a 417.

This started of as a Type R Ta05 Version 2

glad to hear we're all suckers for punishment, allowing BigT to laugh all the way to their bank!

my latest folly:-



1- blue VDF using Tamiya hopups only
2- VDF hoppedup using everything BUT Tamiya parts except for chassis
3- griptrack VDF, mainly Tamiya hopups



its a bad disease, can't resist hopping them up

even when there's nothing else to hopup, we'll still find something:-



Blame the Blue!!

If it hasn't been said 10 times already, unless you're racing the Tamiya TCS GT2 series, there is no reason to hop up a TA05, or R version, unless you like to spend the money and enjoy the build. Save your money and get a 416/417 - it works out to be the same - the only difference is "when" you spend the money, up front or once a week

I am racing GT2, and bought a 'slightly' hopped up basic TA05 - I'll add the alum suspension blocks($70), stiffer TA05 legal CF "infused" chassis($35), gear diff ($30), and misc shims and "bits" ($50) - on top of the TRF shocks($60)/alum motor mount($40)/alum wheels spacers($15)/sway bar kit($25)/front spool($20)/CF rear shock tower($15)/front CVD's($25) that someone else had added!

But do I loveit? Ya, I do!

outdrives are steel like on TA06... anything less i don't think they'd last a lap

white Tamiya diff hasn't been installed in VDF, belt too tight with 18t pulley

middle VDF has a black SpecR geardiff, came out before the Tamiya diff.
It fits under stock belt because centre pulley has been changed to smaller.

SpecR's steel outdrives have fatter slots requiring boneknob cushions,
Tamiya's outdrives expect your dogs to go commando.

WHat do you mean by Commando ? I have changed mines into Sakura Steel Dogbones in the front (No steering shatter)
And then moved the stock steel to the rear and tossed the Alu ones into the parts box.
Oh so I can get rid of these Plastic Cushions if using Tamiya Gear Diffs ?
But I have to use Cushions if using Spec R ? Did the Spec R Drop in Price ?
BC Tamiya are now only 20-25 bucks.
