yes i am a drifter but it's nothing. arms can be replaced. people make it seem like it's welded on or something and i can't put back to stock. it's for bling and i'm not like a hardcore racer like most of the people here. my chassis stay new for ages...so if i want to sell them later, i can always put it to stock. no biggy.

Default Race report..

hey guys.. ran the TA05MS yesterday at a club race in the 13.5 class. After getting my tires figured out, the car is very very capable.

Handling feels very similar to the TA05 but quicker and more nimble. I used my own set up and did a 10.1 (TQ in stock did 10.0 with his MRE in the morning round) during the hottest part of the day. This car is very good and handles very well.

lastly.. i ran the car with a spool. although the car had tons of steering with the one-way.

will put the standard kit set up on there and run it next time i hit the track.

Hey chris how was the MS compared to your old 415MSX? That is the true comparison I am looking for. After Nats, I am moving up to 19t and need to figure out what to get!!!!

you should ask corey lewis. not a reedy G-main driver like me.

seriously though, i like this car better than my 415MRE. i cant put my finger on it, but this car behaves better for me and im more comfortable with it.

i threw a modified (see below) TA05 set up (the one from regionals) on my 05MS, and like i mentioned above, once i chose the correct tires, the 05MS was on pace with the MRE that TQ'ed stock. although my driving wasnt.

i do have one complaint though. i wish it came with the 5 mounting holes on the bulkheads for the camber links. that way i can do a direct transfer of my TA05R set up onto the 05MS. instead Tamiya recycled the MRE bulkheads and im limited to 3 holes instead of the 5 from the 05R.

in two weeks, i'll run the 05MS with a 10.5 and see how much better it is since I ran the MRE mostly in 19T.

What's Dialed....
- countersunk shock towers
- new steering rack
- alum. diff in the rear
- the usual TRF goodies (ribber shock caps and collar adjuster, etc)
- LW suspension

What's Hurting....
- stock screws strip easily
- 3 camber link mounting holes instead of 5 (like the TA05R)

the hex pattern inside gets rounded and the wrench can no longer grip them. when that happens, you cant unscrew it anymore and you have get a dremel out. then you have to dremel a slot into the screw to unscrew them.

ive replaced all the top deck and motor mount screws with new ones.

Spend some $$ on your wrenches you cheap ass.....

See you in a couple weeks. Bring the 05 and I'll put a real setup on it for you at TA. It will give me something to do inbetween practice runs.

must be those "sh!tty" tamiya wrenches then! whats funny is... the integy wrench fits better in the tamiya steel screws than the tamiya wrench.

transferred the GSS to the 05MS.. ran pretty good.

Found a few things to make the GSS even better....

As a heads up I broke my 1.5 and swapped in a Xray tip. Dropped right in and more precise fit. Plus the black tips look killer on the red handle.
