Just got home from the LHS with my new TA05
Hope you guys dun mind me sharing with you the 1st impression.
I got the stock TA05 kit (With Ferrai F430 body) Item 58345**16800
General notes of this kit :
* Includes Stock silver can motor
* Plastic mini CVA shocks (sorry TTSO)
* Alloy motor mount
* Full bearings (Normal metal shield type)
* Does NOT include any MSC or ESC
* Usual Tamiya quality instructions booklet and packaging
1st thing I pick up and looked closely at was the chassis, surprisingly it was quite stiff (as compared to the TB02 tub) but I guess I'll have to complete the car before an final judgement can be made on the stiffness of the stock chassis. The TA05 tub has looks to kill ! .....the up flanged edges has ribs that looks fast !
2nd thing I pick up was the alloy motor mount, it not the shiny blue stuff like in the 415MS but a dull gray alloy piece, nothing to shout about but I guess thats better than the usual Plastic pieces provided in most Tamiya standard kits, the slots provided for range of motor movement dun seems to be alot !
I guess Spur gear changing would be quite a regular feature.
I'll be busy putting this baby together the next few nights. Will post here any nitpicks or pleasant surprises I come across !
Okay, I gotta go grab me some dinner.... Tamiya TA05 diehards let me know wat you wanna see, ....and maybe I'll post some picts !
nahhh ! .....You'll be getting yours a couple weeks time... I'll post anyway just to whet your appetite !
