I mean I can always add the bling in later. Just wanna get the car nice and sturdy first.
sway bars.. yup. i like having alum. rocker arms on there as well....and the hop up shocktower for the rear.

the alum. bulkheads are a great hopup but costly..... BUT their cost is worth the trouble because it helps when changing roll centers and camber link lengths. the plastic pieces wear out quickly. same with the carbon reinforced ones as well.

I got a problem. When i turn left the car likes to spin out. When i turn right it understeers.

I added extra spring spacers on the rear left side and that fixed the problem now the car sits higher on the left side.

Does anyone know what the problem is? I added sway bar kit also.

It could be a balance issue side to side. If you are running a lipo, chances are you will need to add weight to the battery side of the car to make it balance correctly. i had to add atleast 70 grams to make mine work.

if its too heavy on the electronics it will over steer when turning left?

You should also check a few other things...

Tub might have a permanent tweak in it.

Steering links must be the same length left and right.

All 4 shocks need to be the same length.

All 4 shocks need to be mounted at the same position.

Radio EPA should be equal left and right.

Radio Exponential should be equal left and right.

Check that you have the same amount of left andd right travel on the servo.

Uneven droop / down stops could also cause this.

I built my shocks per instructions. There is about 3mm of space between the spring and spacer when the spring is fully uncompressed. Is that correct build?

I will check the rest when I get home.

It is a long list, but here is what is included with the part numbers (took me a good hour to make that list):

Rear carbon shock tower
1x seperate suspension mount
1xA/B/C/D/E & 1A/B/C/D/E - Seperate suspension mounts
Tamiya Spring Set
Tamiya CVDs (46mm)
Tamiya Suspension Holder A/B/C/D/E
Aluminum Bulk Heads (F and R)
Aluminum Motor Mount
Aluminium Top Plate for Motor Mount
Aluminum center one-way Pulley
Front Direct Pulley
Front One-Way Pulley
Aluminum Steering Set
Carbon Battery Plate
Aluminum Roll Center Plates (.5mm and 1mm)
Aluminum Differental Shaft
Aluminum Transponder Stay
Aluminum Servo Mounts
Carbon Steering Link
High Precision Diff Joint
Aluminum Side Brace
51297- Reversible Arm Suspension Kit (Short)
53882- Carbon Mount Spacer Stay (I am assuming for the front)
Tamiya F Parts
Tamiya C Parts
Aluminum Battery Post
Stabilizer Set


I believe that is the list. I don't know why Tamiya just doesn't release a TA05 v2 TRF kit.

I will be upgrading slowly as things break, since I can't afford everything at the same time. I will probably start off with the aluminum suspension holders and rear carbon shock tower then start working up from there to ultimate bling.

I did some searching on google and came up with i topic. The guy was having the same problem. He found out his diff was slipping? I did not apply any glue to my rear diff to lock the plate to the outdrives.

U guys think its slipping?

I'll try that when I get home.

TA-05 is a TCS eligible chassis for GT3 and GT2.

GT3 is currently 540J brushed motors only.

GT2 is 17.5 BL. Any speed controller can be used, but expect that to change in 2011.

LiPo's have been allowed for years in TCS racing.
