I do like the narrower chassis. But as you can see the cantilever layshaft system means you must mount your receiver on top of the servo...
not if you have the Ko Propo Helios 2.4ghz. the receiver is tiny enough to fit next to the cantilever shaft. with a Ko Propo 2413 low profile servo... its a beautiful fit! [/end shameless promotion of Ko Propo products]

Ah hell, my next car.... But I think I'm gonna keep this one very close to stock. It'll be my TCS/VTA car. Looks pretty nice. Should have no problem for me either when fitting up a tiny receiver and low pro servo. Futaba 9551 with tiny Spektrum rx.

No, it'll be plastic. Then they will come out with a carbon composite tub like they have done with the TA05 and TB03, etc etc. Start slow, then slowly roll out the hopup parts.

I'm getting one just to run it as box stock as possible with the aluminum servo saver as my only hopup option. Maybe.........maybe I'll switch over to cvd's too. Maybe. I wanna see if I can get it up to speed like my 416 and 009EU.

One last move on the 05 series before they are releasing the TA-06...I can smell here now...

Overall...no surprise at all, or I don't see these options will made the 05R or IFS-R any better...just using the existing options and dumps it on the new chassis and called it a new generation 05. That MS motor mount is just DUMB looking...mount receiver over the servo, I thought that is a 1980 design.

Don't get me wrong, still love the TA05R, it is probably 1 of my RC car that will last me more then 3 years and I can use it for GT1, GT2, GT3, USVTA and I think I did run MOD couple times and also on Carpet foams...this is just 1 amazing car...

will do (only make a list and visit LHS, won't buy anything )

i think TA 05 ver.2 will be available at our LHS here by the end of 2009, with a very high price due to the exchange rate..
and as usual we will see TA05 ver.2 "R" a year after

btw Tamiya has made very cool Super GT bodyshell for IFS chassis.. NSX'07, Garaiya, GTR, then this Cuzco Subaru..

i loves the old motor mount better than ver.2, the old motor mount give more room for receiver........ but a too little room for Tekin G-10 to be installed

The 2008 Super GT300 entrant, the Cusco Dunlop Subaru Impreza is the first Tamiya 1/10R/C car to feature the new TA05 Ver.II chassis. Finishing the Super GT300 season in 6thfrom a field of 28 entrants, the Impreza showed its prowess at the 4th Round in Sepang where it started from pole position and went on to claim the win. The Impreza also went onto record two more pole positions in the wet at Round 6 in Suzuka and at Round 9 in Fuji.The Impreza is powered by a Horizontally Opposed DOHC turbo charged 4-cylinder engine and is the only AWD race car in Super GT.

# This is a 1/10 R/C assembly kit of the Cusco Dunlop Subaru Impreza.
# The new TA05 ver.II chassis features 5 newly designed parts: L Parts (Lower deck), KParts (Stiffener), M Parts (Suspension Mount), Body and H Parts (Wing, Mirror), DC Parts(Motor mount).
# Overall chassis width is narrower which improves road clearance in rolls.
# The battery position is moved forward for improved driving characteristics.
# The separated suspension mounts enable easy maintenance of the drive train.
# The belt-driven 4-wheel drive chassis features isometric drive belts, front and rear 37T ball diff. and a horizontally mounted motor.
# Features inboard front suspension and short reversible suspension arms as well as up-rights with 1050 ball bearings.
# Aluminum one-piece integrated motor mount.
# Type 540 motor included.
# Polycarbonate rear wing Option Part can be installed.
# ESC, 2-channel R/C system, battery pack & charger are separately required.


From the Tamiya website. Looks as if its a TA05 that runs the 'short reversible suspension/1050 ball bearings up-rights'. I think that normally is available on the TRF models, but i'm not sure. The short arm suspension is normally an expensive upgrade, what road characteristics does it improve upon... any disadvantages?

cool..

short reversible susp is like the one that is installed in 416WE. maybe the advantages (and disadvantages, if any) would be similar to the 416WE over the original 416. this short arm has already been discussed many times in the 416 thread.

That body is awesome. I'll run it in RCGT as soon as I can get my hands on one.

My IFS-R has the short lightweight reversible suspension and I like it. Hard to quantify, but I do much better with that car than my otherwise-nearly-identical TA05R.
