Finally, a good hearted Tao4 lover posted again....
Some parts of Tao4 and Tao5 are identical.... like arms, hubs etc. We still have lots of parts for tao4 here in the philippines..

I'm waiting to get a lipo 4800 pack to use in the ta04r. still cant get the side by sides in there. :P What pinion y'all usually use with the 128T spur for stock motors? I dont remember if the Tamiya uses normal 64 pitch or does it also use pitch metric for those too? I dont have any 64pitch pinions so I have to order that too.

yeah, its kinda hard fiting the side by side to tao4. I use 23t motor. My spur gear is 120t and 45t for the pinion. Im having a good acceleration and top speed, also a longer run time from my gp3300....

Only way is to dremel it and finish it off with file.
See pic and check where the arrows points, that's where I file it down.
Just took a bit of my time and tested my patience

I'm selling some of my TA04R B/New parts. Selling it cheap lower than current RRP. If you're interested just PM me but the only prob is Im here in Sydney so postage is ??? ..but considering these are small and plastic items there's a chance postage is not expensive at all.

it should work well if you remove your wires.. and solder on an L-shaped batt bar and use bullet connectors

I used dean plugs too before.. flatten the end of the wire before you tin it with solder and solder to your battery, in that way the soldered part is not that bulky and it will still slide inside...now with regards to the wires, what I did was I made the red(+) long enough to reach the negative (-) terminal.. and than the black wire is very short like 1.5 inch long only..in this way you will only manage the red wire to fit with out touching anything like the belt... obviously your ESC dean plug will sit on th side where your batt's negative side is... this setup worked with my TA04R with no probs. I wish I still have old pics of my TA04R for you to see.
