I have all electronics needed to complete the transformation. They have everything I need right now but I need a few weeks to get the money. Just over $80 in parts.

Does anyone know if the ta05 version2 chassis will work on a ta05 1st edition?

I was hoping to swap my ta05 tub for a ta05 v.2 tub so it will accept lipo batteries better.

I know, I wanted to switch over my V1 to a V2 so that I can use split blocks, but don't feel like hunting down all the motor mount parts. My V1 handles good anyways, so no need to really pursue it that far.

What's the consensus on carbon reinforced chassis vs the stock plastic for medium traction surface like Tamiya America? I'm having some issue deciding. I feel the stock plastic is good and have good flex but only good for like 4 weekends and the heat and torque from motor kinda tweaks it and softens it and not very good. The reinforced one is harder and more responsive but I'm not sure if it does give the same grip and compliance. It doesn't tweak as easy and not affected by heat as much. What do you guys think? I need to decide before the TCS start on the 30th. Thanks!

honestly, I think you've kind of answered your own question

if the heat is tweaking the chassis that much, then you'll be better off with the other chassis. I have it on mine and didn't notice any lack/change of grip when I ran it.

Wow forgot how great this car was after running it this weekend. Guys got any tips for running on a tight high traction carpet track. Wont have any practice time before i make it out. Anyone know if the exotek chassis is in stock anywhere.

Put me down on the tqrc train made a few orders this past month and shipping has always been great for me and im in the Midwest.

If your racing at TQ in chino. What arms are you using. That will determine what blocks to use. If tamiya springs use whites up front and blues rear. 35 wt oil all around. If you have HPI springs run pinks up front and silvers in the rear.
LTCR body. Standard TA05 chassis actually works very well on carpet.

When you say the arms affect what blocks to use, do you mean whether they are graphite or plastic? Which arms do I use with what blocks? Thanks

BTW I do race at TQRC....

Are you using short reversible arms or long reversible arms? I would always run graphite

i think it comes with the short reversible arms, I'm not entirely sure but it is a stock TA05 V2R. I've only raced the car once since I bought it so I'm not too familiar with it...
