It's the rear bulkhead of the TA05. I don't know the part number but you can do a google search and it will come up.

As far as I know, they don't. Don't get confused with the 3Racing chassis that's labeled as "Version 2." It's confusing, but it's "Version 2" for 3Racing and not in reference to Tamiya's TA05 version 2 car...

I guess I'm going to get a 64-pitch, 96T spur for mine...

Anyone interested in the Subaru Dunlop Cusco Body set that came with the kit? I've ordered an HPI 97 Honda Accord body set (this thing was almost as hard to find as Tamiya's PIAA/JACCS Accord body set) for this car so I don't need it.

The body set comes with NIP Wing, Side mirrors, and Decals, including the body of course

PM me if you're interested, I'm looking to sell it for cash or trade for another NIP body set...

Ok, is it just me, or is the battery hold-down bar VERY flimsy? Should I just buy a CF one and get it over with? Will a DB-01 battery hold down work? The DB-01's looks ALOT beefier...

The stock battery hold down is just fine. Resist the temptation to spend

My ver2 had a slight impact last night and upon that i found that the screw of the king pin had come off and when i tried to screw it back on, the thread was loose. Now i had to use threadlock to secure it temporarily. Does anyone know the part number or hopup part for the front c-hub?

What about the TB03 chassis made by 3 Racing, reason I ask is because at the track i raced at wore a hole near the motor(this happened with alot of cars) or a carbon reinforced chassis?

As far as I know, TB03 and the TA05 are totally different cars... TB03 is shaft driven, I don't think it would fit...

As for the Exotek stuff, they look real trick! I wouldn't mind holding out for a nice Exotek stuff. I've seen quite a few TC5 owners using their stuff...

Look in manual for original

F part plastic - 51293 ( left and right together)

Hopup , blue alu from 3racing TA05-IF16/LB

Note :same parts as for IFS

Personally I would reccommend plastic in front. My original IFS is as blue as possible but in front I went back to plastic parts ( except for bulkhead) and titanium for turnbuckles... I found alu to break or bend a lot easier

Let me post this here as the IFS thread is very slow these days - applies to V2 also , but with a 37T instead .

Is there any advantage (or otherwise) to using the wide pitch 36T pulley ( 49472 ) as a replacement for the standard white kit pulley. The wide pitch one , has every second tooth missing , and from the side it only has holes for the balls with a rim where the original pulley has other holes on the outer perimeter.

I bought it as a replacement for the rear , but the question applies to front or rear.

Thanks

The wide pitch pulley supposedly allows the drivetrain to be more efficient since less belt teeth are in direct contact with the pulley and hence less friction is generated, apparently they're only to be used in stock classes (10.5/13.5/17.5/21.5) because the extra torque generated by mod winds just ends up ripping the belts to shreds.
