Okay, what about part # 54031 for the IFS, is it the same part? I know they both are 4 hubs.

Which one would you use?
Judging by the part description on Tamiya's site, I believe those are the carbon-filled ones, which tend to be kinda brittle. I'd stick with the softer ones, like KevinK said, or if you're in dire need, try the older style ones like I mentioned before(which is what I'm using on both my v.2 & my 416)....

hi,

need advice from pros.. or TA-05 veteran

I'm planning to get a new chassis for touring purpose.. Was thinking about TA-05 version II and TRF416X. I'm just a casual racer who is not into competitive races. Will TA-05 sufficient for my purpose?

Earlier on posted the similar question in TRF416X thread.

Had a TT01 converted into drift that I want it remain to be a drift machine..

thanks a lot

Yes, TA-05v2 would be great for your purpose, especially the one with the upgrade pack

Question - I have a TA05 IFSR and am converting to v2 - For those who have been running the v2 - what are the pros / cons vs TA05 v1? I am assuming it is better, but really haven't heard any specifics.

The V2 transitions from left to right a bit quicker since it has a narrower chassis. A little easier to work on due to the split block configuration. But you cannot go wrong with either car... both are fantastic.

Are you guys running the plastice outdrives or have you upgraded to the aluminum ones? Also those pink urethane bushings have been backordered for a while. Is there a alternative out there?

Thanks Chris - Sounds good to me - I am also hoping the v2 chassis has less tweak than the TA05 v1.

I upgraded to the aluminum - I find them smoother and more durable. Do not know anything about the bushings though - Good luck with that.

Tweak.. on a plastic chassis? haha... the V2 actually bends more than the V1 because it is plastic... V1 is available in Carbon which is much stiffer. V2 Carbon chassis is not shipping yet.

Anyone knows which other tamiya's knuckle and c-hubs which will fit the verII. I lost my oirginal king pin today on the track and along with 2 other yeah racing kingpin set. Tried 3 racing knuckle before and it broke even on drifts.

How are you guys correcting the tweek on these cars? Is it necessary to have a tweek gauge or is just easier?

I almost don't even bother.. It changes from as soon as you move the car and the plastic flexes. Set your ride height, your droop and just drive it.
