This is what I have:

Just read on that page "not compatable with 64 pitch spur gears."

I don't understand much about gears.

Ditto. I really don't see what the big deal is. I've never had any problems with mine neither, and I've had my Tamiya for about three years.

Someone recomended 105 tooth 64 pitch spur and pinions between 46-49. earlier(but I wanted to use the kit spur gear) would these fit better or would I need to cut away more to make these fit for the 4.3-4.5 F.D.R.?
I have always run 64P gears in my TA05-R, after the kit spur wore out I got Robinson Racing spurs and pinions. Go to their web site and you will find a handy conversion chart from 48 to 64.

You may never be able to get a final drive that low with a TA05 series kit, but IIRC you've got the V2. Although the motor mount is different than mine, it still sits pretty low in the car, compared to a T3 or TC5. If you are dremeling the mount then I bet it's the front portion of it, just to get the gears to mesh.

Maybe an aftermarket company sells a motor mount that can help solve your problem. Be careful selecting 3Racing; their parts do not always fit correctly.

Hope that helps

Does this mean 13.5 motors are not recomended for this car? (without mods?)

I'm currently running a 4600Kv BL with no problems. Watch out if you use a drag motor; I fused and melted two rear diffs, and it made one of the two outdrives shatter both times.

It would be safe to say that the car's drivetrain would need to be beefed up for anything more powerful than a 4600Kv BL motor. Here's what I use:

I've got a set of Acer ceramic balls in the rear diff, with the black aluminum outdrives, and I replaced my blue aluminum driveshafts long ago w/ the black steel ones (same as the fronts now).

If you're running a 13.5 BL motor, it wouldn't hurt to do those kind of mods as soon as you see the kit parts start to show some good wear.

Three years now, and those black steel driveshafts are bulletproof!!! That's including parking lot bashing and insane speed run records (personal records).

The high precision diff outdrives will fit any TA05 series ball diff, so that may be something to check out. I've seen some other TA05 outdrives, and they have a lot more slop and play than the high-precision ones.

The aluminum ones are about the same, but the plastic snap-on yoke cushion wears out over some time and the same slop and play shows up. There are plenty of spares out there though for those

I just browsed Tamiya USA's web site, and they're coming out with:

RC TA05v.2 R Chassis Kit - TA05v2
Item #84159 (coming soon)

Awesome!!! Now I can officially retire my TA05-R to shelf queendom when I get this kit

I'm betting it's going to be released the same time as the TRF417.

Oh - and reading the hop-up list, I realized I can use TRF416 front and rear uprights on my existing car!!! Sweet!!! 8)

Thumbs up

I noticed that today the Tamiya USA web site updated the info about the upcoming R version (good handful of pics). I had to type in the kit number to find it again (#84159), but that will probably be fixed. It appears to have more hop-ups than the #92217 kit with the upgrade package. I do see blue turnbuckles, and hope that they're titanium like my car and not aluminum.

Also found a blank setup sheet for the V2

Yeah I was just surfing parts and saw that too, they've got several good pictures for it now. Looks nice! Too bad it's too late to save me from buying all the upgrades one at a time, for my current V2.

http://www.tamiyausa.com/product/ite...oduct-id=84159

They also officially listed an HSV-010 version of the V2 kit. Can't wait for that body set!

Finally finished my car. LHS gave me a 28 tooth pinion and they said it should be fine with the stock spur gear.. The thing rips! now I'm just figuring out how to limit the throttle so I don't destroy it!

Looks nice! I just got my Exotek chassis set up on Friday, I've got quite a few other upgraded bits on the way from Hong Kong...rocker arms, steering bits, so forth - just waiting the long wait for airmail. I bought an entry level car and by the time I'm done with it, the thing will have cost me more than a TRF417

Oh well, hopping up R/C cars is fun. I need to get my wiring situation sorted out better, though.

Just thought I'd share,

I was driving it on the road outside my house(I was thinking of the consequences of doing so before), and it suddenly stopped. Found a pebble about the size of Lincolns head on a penny jammed inside the front diff half under the belt!
