Are you going up?
i'd like to - but the drive from Philly to Troy is a bit much for a one day event

Thanks for your input on this guys
Think I'll pick one up and try it on the car before the race over on our Secret Testing Facility
once the snow melts on it to see how it performs with Golddusts driving style.
He was pretty happy with it when we ran it for the first time down at Jackson last year.
We were close with the initial setup but the guys helped out tremendously down there.
I also want to upgrade the steering assembly from the stock plastic to the Aluminum
kit. I hope that its still available, I looked at a couple of sites and it says that its now a discontinued part. Which I cant understand, unless I was plugging in the wrong part number, which would be par for me!
I'm hoping to be off this terrible 3x11 shift by the end of February, otherwise
we're gonna have to figure out some way of doing the Troy race. I'm gonna pester John to see if he has any plans for the beach yet KBo, so will let you know when I do
Mike

If you can't find the aluminum part, use the reinforced plastic unit which is about as good. Just add ball bearing. From experience, reinforced plastics pretty much will perform as well as aluminum but more prone to stripping from over tightening screws and too much assembling and disassembling. But in case of steering it's not too much of an issue unless you crash a lot and crash very hard.

Oh didn't even think of that. Good idea thanks
If it was me driving it a lot I would be concerned but Golddust has his driving skills honed in (something about the kids and video games these days!)
Or maybe I'm just getting too old to drive any more???
Forget it I don't wanna go there! LOL

I have one I'm willing to sell. It's in almost new condition. Built it and ran for about 5-10 mins. Been sitting on shelf since. It's the Subaru Cusco body. Has a Castle Mamba pro esc w/motor. I'm at work now so probably no pix till tomorrow evening.

Sharing a photo of my fully hopped-up TA05 V2 R. Almost everything has been replaced, that I almost have enough parts to build a second car. The only original parts that came with the car are the carbon reinforced stiffeners, V2 R aluminum motor mount brace, swaybars, TRF shocks, carbon reinforced suspension and aluminum suspension mounts, front and rear universals, low friction belts, spur gear holder and shaft, servo saver.

All hop ups are Tamiya

TA05 V2 Carbon reinforced lower deck
TA05 Aluminum bulkheads front and rear
TA05 Carbon damper stays front and rear
TA05 V2 Aluminum motor mount
TA05 Aluminum motor heatsink
TA05 aluminum side brace
TB03 Aluminum racing steering set
TA05 Front direct coupling
TA05 gear diff (rear)
TA05 V2 Titanium screw set
TB03 carbon bumper brace
TB03 aluminum servo stays
TA05 carbon battery plate
Aluminum horn for high torque servo saver
Titanium coated suspension shafts



The leftover parts. I already have the spur gear holder and shaft in the mail. I just need the short reversible suspension set, the suspension blocks, swing shafts. But I might hop this one up also since I have an extra IFS aluminum bulkhead and aluminum rocker arms which I removed from the car when I converted to stand-up shocks
