Default Ta05 Aramid Belts?

I would definelty say that kit isnt necesary. the Ta05, with a few hop-ups is a great intermediate racer. Exactly what its intended to be, if i was planning on buying a Ta05 and then paying a whole bunch of money to make it more like all the other TC's on the market, why buy the ta05 in the first place?

And i wanted to ask, are those Aramid belts more durable then the stock Ta05 belts? Ive got a preatty well hopped-up Ta05,and when my belts eventually do fail (they seem to be very durable thus far) should i buy the aramid belts?

Hey cjennings,
Sorry no ones gotten back to about your question on the aramid belts. If I'm not mistaken the belts aren't necessarily a necessity but they do free up the drive train and and have offer more longevity.

Once the kit belts wear out, it certainly wouldn't hurt to get the aramid belts. Especially if your getting them a a low cost from somewhere like rc-champ.

While your at it, you might as well get them in blue.

One thing to keep in mind when you change belts, is that just about everyone had to adjust the belt tension for the new belts. You can run them a bit looser than the stock belts so it frees up the drivetrain even more.

No, the rear spool is for drifting.

CVDs would/should be mandatory for at least the front. The belts look good though. I also had the MRE pulleys on mine.

At least upgrade the rear belt the stock one will stretch and frey very quickly if you put too much power through them 12 turn will only take a few runs.
The lightweight ball ends are useful they are not as soft as the kit ones and won't pop off as much.
Just be careful with the spend as the hop up bill can climb and for racing it is not easy to get the weight down. Yes the TA05 is a nice car to start with out of the box but you may need to move up later.
