I was finally able to race my now VTA class TA05vII. It was a lot of fun and I was very happy with how the car held up.

I couldn't get enough steering and the traction didn't seem too good.

Are there any tips on improving these in this car?

I was thinking I could dremel my chasis so I could increase the d/r setting. I'm using the kimbrough servo saver with the screw in the top right corner.

I'm running a spool front and ball diff in the rear. Are there any tips on how to keep the belt tensions?

I have the yellow sway bar in front and red in the back. 40wt shock oil all around so suspension is very stiff.

I didn't want to dremel the chassis for TCS reasons, but I think the rack is actually the limiting problem, instead I am using the forward holes in the steering knuckles, these provide better throw.

I raised the front roll center with 1mm shims under all 3 blocks, and added .5mm shims under the front rear blocks, all of that helped with steering. Also play with the rear shock position.

with my original ta05 ver ii r, I have the rear shocks all the way out, so as straight as you can get, no rear sway bar, front blue and rear yellow tamiya springs, that should fix your rear traction problem, as for not having enough steering, so you have your epa to the max, as on my car I have tons of steering and my epa is 90 percent, if they are maxed, try the inner hole as mentioned, or trying using tamiys pink springs and a light swaybar, also play with your dual rate settings

anyone know the part number for the pulley case that comes in the ta05 gear diff?? I got a leaky one and want to get another - plus, I'm ordering the other spare parts for the diff

or - does anyone know if the 51468 Gear Diff Unit Pulley Case - TRF417 (37T) will fit the TA05 gear diff?

the ta05 diff seems to be sold out all over

i forget tower has these things as well - I just usually look at speedtech or TQ RC, since they usually have the best prices and quickest shipping

Not sure where you could get one locally. Tower Hobbies ships international if you want to go that route....

would cutting the top chassis plate on the exotek chassis in the back give more rear traction, or has anyone with the chassis tried it, coz I see a lot of t3 and 417 cut the top decks to get more flex, so just wondering if that would be the same for the exotek

used a clip on mount, couldn't find another way, might have been able to rig up a lexan mount, but lacked the motivation
