yes i just need to find i shop who stocks the new parts!

but now i`m thinking of buying a brand new kit instead, would be cheaper than buying all parts loose (chassis, extra diffs, arms, pulleys etc) and just sell the body, shocks tires etc on ebay

very tempted to try the ver2 arms on the car, as they should be a bit softer than the std rev arms they should provide some more traction on low grip asphalt tracks

That's why I decided to go ahead & get it, my '05 is the original(including the original suspension, pulleys, stand-up shocks, the whole smash), would've been pretty darned expensive to fully upgrade it(oh, & it should get here either tomorrow or Wednesday, & I'll try to report on my impressions of it as I go if you guys want)......

If you're serious about it I am interested in the body/decals, etc. if you get the Subaru Cusco car.

Apart from the shocks and upper camber links, how many screws are involved in taking out the front or back diff on this car?

Just the 4 screws holding the upper part of the bulkhead.

i have, & I'm in the process of building it now(but I'm gonna take my time with it, wanna be sure everything is as close to perfect as possible, & it's the offseason for onroad here anyway, so no reason to hurry). I'm liking how it's coming together so far, though I do wish they could've set the pulleys in the same positions as on the 416, so that one could possible use the aluminum diff outdrives from a 416(but those are just a bit too different to use in the 05, one end is considerably longer, wouldn't work out). I also still need to get some upgrade goodies for it(some I have like some TRF aluminum shocks & some outer suspension mounts & some parts to make universals, but I still want some other things like the aluminum front suspension rocker arms & pivots & the optional inner suspension arm mounts that I don't think are available just yet). But overall I'm quite pleased so far, going together nicely....

do you think this car is good for racing in 13.5T class?

I will race in a low grip parking lot.

Yes, I do, especially for someone with less experience, it should be VERY forgiving, but it definitely has LOTS of room for upgrades, so as your driving improves, the car can keep up with you for a long time(& I'd say this about ALL TA05's, btw). And I think this new one has GOBS of potential(which is why I bought it myself, that & I wanted the right car to run in Tamiya's GT2 class at TCS events, & they only allow the IFS cars in that class). I definitely get good vibes from it right now, & I can't wait to get it finished & ready to run.....

Default Suspension Arm

@Skitee, @Grizzbob

I would like to know what suspension arm and dogbone length the TA-05 V2 is using. Is it the reversible suspension arm with 48mm dogbone or short reversible suspension arm with 46mm dogbone (not sure if tamiya sells this)?

Thanks and cheers,
Jarryd

Even if they'd set the pulleys as in the 416(WE) you'd still not be able to use the 416 diff joints because the bulkhead spacing is different (i.e. narrower on the TA05 family of cars).
