I like the look of the servo mount and the steering parts. Always good to get rid of flex in the steering system; it's too hard to predict the cumulative effect of having multiple flexible steering parts. If you want a little flex can just use a servo saver, or a flexible servo horn. I hear the XRAY servo saver is the best one available nowadays.

The carbon-fiber upper chassis braces might be worthwhile, but carbon-reinforced nylon should be fine. The carbon-fiber shock towers are pure bling, because they aren't as stiff against twisting as carbon-reinforced nylon is.

Titanium screws are always nice, but there's probably less expensive places to get them than from Tamiya.

The aluminum diff housings will be good for people who keep breaking the carbon-reinforced nylon ones. I've never had that problem, so I'll keep my lighter and less-expensive ones.

Does a spur gear even count as an "option part"?

The TB 05 Pro is in stock at our LHS. It cost around USD200. Some option items are also available.

I'm truly excited about this one. I had the TA07 on my want list, but I prefer shafts for the parking lot bashing I do.

Kit comes with 418 arms instead 419 like TA07. Is there any benefits on shaft drive or something?

The 419(X) arms are needed when you use TRF419X SSBB shocks in conjunction with 05E-blocks and above in front.

TB05 has no hop up option SSBB damper stay yet, therefore 418 arms are ok.

Looking forward to see how this performs in rally mode, possible competitor to the XV01?

I'm sure it would be good rally platform, with some mods to increase ride height. I have TB03 with similar layout and it works great

Default TB05 first impression

i got men on the track last Saturday. The build went smoothly but as with shaft drive, end shimming of the gearbox is a bit tedious. If you had a tb03 and recall the pain of changing the gears, the 05 is a whole new deal. Three screws on the bottom are removed along with the drive shaft and the motor plate is totally accessible. A wonderful design.

i built the kit with the kit set up and 35/30 shock oil frt/bk and the new gold springs. On the first run, I forgot to sauce my tires (too excited to run the car!) but the traction came on strong after the tires warmed up. 2-3 laps was all it took. The acceleration was quick and direct as expected. Turn in was a little slower than desired but a quick radio adjustment to increase end points changed that.

my lap times in the first and second run are already on par with my tb03 and ta07. This chassis has a lot to give and I like it. The flex in the chassis was initially a concern, but I think that helps to keep the rear end planted.

Only run one pack but a little disappointed in my first run, built as kit apart from 1k rear and 500k front diff oil with motor forward. Had a lack of initial turn in, oversteer mid corner and lots of on power oversteer on corner exit, it was an early run so the track was low on grip but it didnt feel very balanced. I got rid of the mid corner oversteer but the corner exit on power oversteer and lack of initial turn in will have to wait til next time. This was running a 20t saturn brushed. Might try motor to rear and 4 deg hubs next time
