The blue belts don't fit at all. The 2 options available are the Black Low friction belts as Grizzbob pointed out and the white belts from the IFS-R.

The glue is necessary when using plastic outdrives. The plastic is too slippery and soft to hold the diff ring in place. And if they do slip, they will start to melt if the diff heats up. This is how the Diffs are built in the Durga.

When using metal outdrives, then a little grease is all that's needed to hold the diff ring steady. And if it does slip, the outdrive won't melt.

Hi all,

I just picked up the Cusco Subie and I'm stoked! Any building tips? Hop-ups needed? I'm putting the black Tamiya shocks on it first.

Do the aluminum TA05-IFS suspension parts fit?

Yeah, don't screw it up (paradoxically)!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

What online stores do you guys recommend for purchasing spares? NONE of my LHS's stock Tamiya parts (or kits, for that matter!) in the Dallas area if you can believe that!

Default Belt Tensioner on TA05 v2?

Hi,

Does anyone of you knows if we can install a belt tensioner in TA05 v2 chassis? Because I have this like a little bit loose belt, and when it runs, its like it is skipping a tooth. The kit is brand new was run just to test it out.

You don't need a belt tensioner for this car, there is more than enough adjustment available to stop the belt from skipping.

There is a dedicated TA-05 V.II thread where something similar was sorted out, go read it you may have the same problem.

TA-05 ver.2

Eccentric diff holders adjust the belt tension. If the standard kit-instruction position allows skipping, you need to move them out a notch or two...
