Actually, the Axio has its good angles...

Check out the aero detail coming off the rear fenders...

In fact, that sounds like a pretty good idea, if you get that kit, let me know, maybe we can work something out....

Just wondering if it is possible to convert a TA05MS to an IFS. I've looked over some of the parts on tamiya's website and it looks like it might work, but not quite sure.

This is a TA05 V2 thread, the car is similar to the IFS, but perhaps someone can answer it.

There's a TA05 IFS thread, if someone doesn't help you here, maybe the people in that thread can help you

Tamiya TA05 IFS

No way that's going to work.

you want to trade? I have an IFS-r with 3racing chassis on it, but still have the orig parts too.

What's a good starting point set up? I plan on running on a medium size asphalt track with stock gearing and silver can. I mainly am looking for droop and ride height.

Yeah I sold my both of my DF-03's. The car went together perfect and so far it drives great. I have not driven it on a track yet so I don't know how it will handle under prepped conditions, but I really like it on the tennis court I highly recommend one, it's a great car.

Hi
Has anyone experienced noisey gearing with the verII? Im running a 17.5 Novak Brushless with 48 pitch gearing 38 pinion to a 66 spur. I have checked for damage on both gears, checked the motor, made sure nothing is binding, checked the diffs and even loosen the belts but its still very noisey, I have changed the pinion still no difference. The spur gear does not show any damage but I did have the same problem with a 540 but that was fixed by changing pinion, any ideas would be greatly appreciated

48P is louder than 64P. try 64P... the car will get quieter.

Yeah that may be true but I have always run 48P and never had a noise problem with any of my cars except for the VerII. Im thinking maybe the spur gear is damaged which I will replace or K12 was loose would that of caused the noise issue? I have run the same brushless motor in the car before without a noise problem.

I'll admit, I HAVE noticed a bit more noise from my ver.2 compared to its predecessor or my 416, but I can't tell it's had any effect on its speed or efficiency(nothing runs hotter than it should, & my car's plenty quick & seems to roll pretty freely), so it may just be something to get used to(& I do run 64 pitch gears, so I don't think gear pitch is the whole story)....

I've ran 32 and 48 in off-road, 48 and 64 in on-road.

Even though the "pitch" is referring to the angle and the teeth size, when I was a kid, I always thought that it referred to the sound it made.

I never noticed that any of the different "pitch" gears sounded LOUDER or QUIETER, but it was just a different tone.

A GRINDING or CRUNCHING noise is a drivetrain issue, a "Louder" sound may just be the way the whole thing is put together and the sound it makes similar to a musical instrument, whether it's a long tube, horn, etc...

If it's not a GRINDING or a CRUNCHING noise, I wouldn't worry about it. Just check your usual stuff and make sure it's good, gear mesh, belt tension, etc...


I'm planning on getting this car soon, any "gotchas" or build tips you guys can give me? Is this whole kit ball-raced so no more additional bearings are needed?
