That was good at MS come with one-way, because i`ll use it first time on carpet.

Last year when i Bought MRE it came with spool and when i went carpet training i had to make o-w, because it`s pain to drive with spool on tight carpet track

Given the excellent handling characteristics of the TA05MS, on any surface within reason, it should make a good "bumpy" asphalt car. By saying "within reason", I am referring to any surface that other touring cars can run on. I've ran my TA05MS in makeshift parking lot courses with some friends to do some testing and haven't experienced any problems.

I bought here recently and whilst I am still waiting for the car, the price seemed good.

Thanks all for the reply. I am trying to decide if I should get this car for me or get after market CF chassis for my two boys. I have the penguin cf on my car now and it works great, but the top deck give limited access to the pinion gear making it hard to change.

Thanks Rodney

yes, get this kit if you have the cash because it's a great kit and the handling is just superb bro even with the box setup only, but if you kinda change its setup, and find the setup that will make the kit more outrageous with the handling, you can... Very ... If you know what I mean...

But I also want to get the trf415msxx mre but I am just going to wait for the 416...

If you want your TA05MS to be more nimble, try changing the front suspension mounts to give more toe-out at the hinge pin.

105t spur came with kit, so 21 pinion makes 11.25? Why so big FDR?

because I have this (first time to have) 3.5R BL motor and in the manual, it says that 4.5R starting point (in FDR) is 10 - 10.5 FDR, 5.5R is 9 - 9.5 FDR, 6.5R is 8 - 8.5 FDR, so I am assuming the starting point for 3.5R is 10 - 10.5 FDR...

I'm pretty sure that a 21 tooth pinion won't fit with the 105 tooth spur.

it will as long as it is a fine teeth pinion like the 105t spur...
