Anybody know where I can get me one of those EX05 Lipo chassis for a V2....?

thanks
For a period of time I searched Exotek EX05 almost everyday on Ebay until I found one haha.

I will let you know if I decide to sell it, Thinking about getting a drift specific TA05 conversion. Not sure yet though, might try this one out or a bit.
I will post pics of it soon, really cool conversion.

thats not really necessary I built a ta05 v2 for vta and i still use the kit shocks the only thing that i really upgraded was the rear bearing carriers the front c hubs and the front steering neckled all 3 racing the only other thing that I changed was the lower control arm mounts. got some from exotek normally the first thing that i upgrade is the things that break first in a really bad wreck just my thought

Which one of these do you guys think would reduce drive line chatter the most... Currently At full throw my tires and belt are convulsing like crazy.

Looking like a pretty good start. Still see a couple Phillips head screws.
Might want to look at the rear roll bar mounts. It should be the outer-most holes on the front of the arm.

If I switch to stand up shocks, what bodies will I have too look for?
I'm only guessing bodies made for the v.II won't work?

it is, the swaybars just aren't connected.

I ran out of Ti screws for the front shock tower

Car is now ready to hit the track.

What is everyone using for a front spool? I don't think the V1 spool will fit seeing that the older car has 36T diff pulley.

Thanks RacingEvo.

Does anyone else have the problem with the turnbuckle ends connecting to the sway bars rubbing against the dogones?

The V1 spool is the one you want. Just buy the 37T pulley separately.

Pulley

Just adjust the collar out slightly before tightening the setscrew into the swaybar. There is about 1-2 mm clearance on mine currently. As long as it isn't resting against the driveshaft, you should be good.
