No. Same dimensions. White belt is a little bit smoother than black one.

car felt good but not as fast as my 419.. my 419 is more agile changing directions. TA07ms rear felt good.. and is easy to drive... mmm any ideas. i will love to compete with this beauty.

thanks
If you have original E-E in front, I would try to go more narrow for asphalt. C-C or lower is more suitable for asphalt. The wide front ends all cars have now as standard, are better for carpet. Therefore steering response should be better on asphalt with more narrow track on front.

Make sure if you want to use the C-C blocks in the front, that you use the "old" 419 front arms as the hole for the shock in the 419x is to much inside, its made for the G-G blocks.
G-G , F-F, E-E with 419x suspension arms
D-D , C-C,... 419 front suspension arms

Looking for suggestions on the TA-07MS. My son Nathan Weir just won TamiyaUSA Nationals in GT1 and is going back to Japan for Worlds. Worlds racing surface is unlike anything here in the USA, as it is carpet with no traction sauce allowed. Grip is at a premium. I'm thinking my TA-07MS might be the hot ticket on that surface, given the somewhat flexible side to side chassis. Given the motor used (10.5) and gearing rule (6.5 final drive!), the cars travel at about the speed of a 25.5 VTA car. Any thoughts or suggestions? Any setup sheets someone might want to share? It obviously has to be all Tamiya parts to run at Worlds.

Default Ta07 exotek conversion.

Hello everyone, I have the exotek conversion kit for the TA 07 pro with the exotek new bulkheads. Is there a big difference between the exo ant the Ms?

Weight balance options would be my main thought

I don't think there's a lot in it either way for most people so the more novel drivetrain was the deciding actor for me. The MS allows 3 motor positions and gives you felxibilty where other makes are making mid motor conversions the MS allows you to change this trackside.

Add to that the the suspension is the same as the 419XR I think it gives a more interesting car

As mentioned above, the novelty of it being a single belt transmission and having adjustable motor positions, all on a TRF suspension platform was the main reason I got it. However, depending on where you run it may be slightly limited as there is no aluminum chassis available (except if you count the Christian Donath chassis which is more a prototype), less flex adjustments (the car is more on the flexible side), and in general less support on setup. Nonetheless it is a high performance car.

Yeah I will add I know nobody else in the UK who runs an MS, the only other owner I know hasn't built the car. However I think a lot of 419 infor can be transferable and I've been abel to talk to the handful of 419 drivers I know for general direction
I think having a TRF Tamiya be it a TRF/TB Evo or TA ms you're always going find fewer people running them than other cars

Hi,

2 Questions:
1.) is there anybody out in the world who sell carbon lower decks for the ta07ms? I hoped Tamiya bring up spare parts but it looks like the sold a modell with no support

2.) anybody got a good indoor setup for the ta07ms? I will run on a alu lower deck indoor with stock engine and not sure which base setup I will use? I thought of front motor positions and 3 toe in rear with mit wide suspensions blocks and wide front maybe F with 1 toe out. 2 front and 1,5 rear camber.

Im happy for every advice!

thanks

best
markus

I attached a setup I'm using with the aluminum chassis on ETS black carpet for a small indoor track with 17.5 blinky, it's close to stock setup. I'm still tuning it but as of now it pushes a little so its easy to drive.

Traction compound applied on full front and rear tires.
