Default Tamiya ta05 v2 or ta06??

Hello, I really like Tamiya and I want to buy a belt-driven touring car. I'm between those 2 cars and found them around 150$. I will mostly have some fun at a parking or something and later on race at a local track. Ta05 is old but I've been told it's a really good chassis and the ta06 has gear driven rear wheels and maybe it's over engineered but it's newer and I like the weight distribution. Any thoughts please?

Both cars are good t a 05 V2 is more of a race car if you look in the TAO 5 V2 thread you'll see my car there had a great time running it problem is starting to get hard to find parts for it given that I would definitely go with the TA06 I have run both one is not faster than the other it all boils down to driving for bashing and having fun I know you're leaning towards a belt car but I would probably stay away from it when you're running in a parking lot you get lots of debris in the chassis which will get into the belts and if you get little pebbles you can damage the belt and the teeth for that reason I would recommend the new tamaya TB05 which you can get the pro version with some blue aluminum goodies directly from Tamia for a super sale right now The drivetrain is completely sealed up so you won't have to think about it that car is very well balanced . but if you really have your heart on one of the other ones I would go with the TA06

Umm... It kinda depens on your level of experience with rc. I had a 06 pro and it was not a easy chassis to do maintenance with, especially when come accessing the rear diff. Due to my inexperience, my 06 pro had a leaky diff and to access it, you have to remove the motor, unscrew the rear stifener, aroud 6-10 screws on the bottom and 3-4 more screws on the gear box. By the time you done all that the entire rear end of 06 will be torn apart.

Besides the diff problem, wiring electronics will be Challenging(for my skill level). Literally cable had to.be wired between the main belt to solder onto motor. The motor choice will be limited too because solderong pads mptor will clash with.the left rear stiffener. Unless you use spacers and longer screws to imstall motor, speed passion and Tamiya' s motors will be the best choice.

Handing wise, the 06 is balanced and has very stable rear end. But to achieve all this, you will Scracifice a lot. While the ta05 with its straight forward and even more relevant design (yes, mid pulley is a trend now, Tamiya did that 15 years ago), wider user base outside japan, it is the clear better choice as long as you dont plan to go crazy with hop ups.

Between the two , I'd go with the 05. I don't like the layout design of the 06 and there is no way you can do a clean electronics installation because of their placement. So wires and cables will be overlapping the chassis. Also as mentioned, maintenance is more complicated due to accessing some parts.

If you can stretch your budget a bit, go with the TA-07 Pro or RR.

I've raced both and kept the TA-05 Ver.2 but sold my TA-06 Pro. I was not a fan of the TA-06 layout, especially the bottom load battery. It's also heavy and has an awkward radio installation.

Thank you all for your answers,I guess I will skip the 06 and I will also check the TA07 and TB05 although I prefer the belt.

For parking lot, you want sealed gear box. I had a TA05 long time ago. Damaged the gear with the very first pack of battery running at parking lot.

TB05 is good but kind of expensive. I would recommend TT02SR (has to be SR). It comes with many upgrades. Or XV01 if you still want belt drive.

Then when you are ready to go racing, you donít want any Tamiya cars. LOL

Interesting, the only TT02SR I've seen are more expensive than the TB05 Pro or TA07 Pro. In my experience of them the TB and TA cars are far better than the TT cars and always the better option.

Also, don't discount Tamiya. I've seen a TA07 Pro beat Xray etc in 21.5T, its down to the driver, the car is good enough to compete. Certainly for a seasonor 2 anyway.

Personally given the choice in the original post I would go for TA05 v2, but if the TB05 and TA07 are thrown into the mix then either one, it just depends if you want belt or shaft drive.

Unless the TT-02 is a KR version, don't even compare a TT series to a TA or TB series.

If I stretch my budget a bit like Nicadrauspro said, I guess I will go for the trf419xr for 299 but not for a parking lot. Seems like a good deal to me

TA and TB are better but he said $150 budget. TT02R is $190 on eBay. TB05 is $323.

For racing, you better go to track, and check out what other people use. I donít think Tamiya is a good choice.

Well, the best budget 4wd touring car right now remains the Xpress XQ1S and I don't see anything else that can touch it performance for the price.

If just bashing alone in a parking lot, then a TT-01e chassis is a decent choice and they come with motor, ESC, tires, rims and very nicely detailed bodies. It's not lacking for upgrades should one so desire at a later stage.
