Taisan Porsche GT2 on Ta05
I was wondering if anyone has had experience fitting a Taisan Porsche GT2 body (original or re-release 49387) on a TA05 chassis. The original chassis released by Tamiya was a TA-02SW which had a short 237 mm wheelbase, and a wide rear track width. I am trying to fit the body on a IFS rolling chassis I have sitting around for display purposes and maybe a few casual runs. The IFS chassis has a wheelbase of 257 mm.
I have read some other posts on various forums regarding what is required, but I was wondering if anyone here had any solid experience with the conversion. From inspection, most of the interest in the Taisan body was back in 2004-2007, so it is difficult to find people who can help.
So far it seems that a short reversible suspension is required at the front, with maximum rearward spacing. I have these parts since I bought IFS-R. For the rear, there is a little confusion, but it seems a TA05 V1 suspension with TA-04SS parts will work. Any confirmation on this? Anything I am doing wrong? I will be using standard KAWADA mesh wheels at the front (TU-37) and wide mesh wheels at the back (TU-38), on Tamiya slicks.
Hopefully, once everything is sorted out, I plan to have a build post for others to follow.
Thanks for your help.
