Look for a Version 1 if you do a extreme conversion kit.
the 1 has all the parts u need anyway.

aside from a random screw or spacer, you should be set - i'm not familiar with conversion set you bought, but its made to swap out with minimal additions...

2 things, is there a spring chart that shows the white with red, blue and yellow dot spring rates? I ended up using top springs to make the car stiffer, which helped.

can a 417 steering rack fit in this car? there is only one other option for ackerman, and I think the car just needs longer links in general, it's hard to get it to turn in, but it still has great mid corner.

I just had a quick question hoping some one could answer, does the new gold edition ta05 ver 2 give you both setup, like the ta06, can you make the car with standard front suspension or ifs thanks

This photo on the Tamiya USA site shows the Gold edition TA05 V2 with stand-up shocks. I am looking forward to seeing the manual so I can put together the part numbers to convert from IFS shocks to stand-up shocks.

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=84275

By any chance, has anyone done such a conversion and have a parts list handy or can point me to one?

I converted my TA05v2 ifs to stand up shocks on the front. What you basically need is another rear bulkhead and a front shock tower.
I went with after market parts with a aluminum rear bulkhead which you replace the front one with, and a carbon fiber front shock tower for a TA05 v1.

Bulkhead
http://broadtechonlineshop.com/eagle...l.aspx?id=3553

Shock Tower
http://broadtechonlineshop.com/eagle...?id=TA05-02/WO

On the gold TA05v2 you can still see the ifs shock mount in place, this has to be left there to add strength to the plastic chassis.

p.s. The aluminum bulkheads shown above use the larger TA05v1 plastic bearing holders instead of the smaller TA05v2 ones.
The part number for those is "A Parts 51208".

Cheers
Rob.

Done this conversion about 2 months ago. Like ta04evah wrote just with the shock tower and the bulkhead. Like this conversion very much and it wil stay this way For me personally the car is handling better then with the IFS setup.

Thanks for the info JD Skyline and ta04evah.

I've been fighting an off-power looseness in the rear-end for a while now and thought it might be easier to correct if I didn't have the IFS front suspension. I had hoped the conversion was easy/straight-forward. Your posts sure make it sound that ways so I am going to give it a try.

Depends which option you use.
If it's the option for stand up shocks then it'll work quite well out of the box.

If it's the IFS version, then leaving out a couple of screw on the top plate in front and behind the center top plate screw on the motor mount will let it flex a little to give more grip on a slippery track.

After converting to stand up shocks on the front I still have the IFS mount on the chassis. I removed the 2 aluminum posts that are between the plastic IFS mount and lower EX05 chassis which allowed the car to flex a bit more. Removing those posts transformed my car from something that felt the rear end was lose and wanted to let go to a car that gives great grip and corner speed in turns.

I could get the replacement non IFS top plate to do away with the IFS mount but the car is working well for me as it is and it's a nice thing to mount a transponder on.

Of course different setups will work for different people, the complexity and excessive free play of the IFS was something I did not want on the car.

Cheers
Rob.

I made some progress with the car, I ran it in 13.5 blinky with solaris hard tires and a beat up P37 body, it got around ok, still needs turn in though. I raised the front RC 1mm, and added 1mm kick up to the rear, and also started using the front holes on the knuckles, this allows for full lock.
Still have TOP springs on the car, probably need to go back and try the tamiya set with the other changes.
