We were talking about this car at Tamiya today and saying how the name "TA05MS) is very deceiving since this seems like more a TRF416 car than a TA05 since it shares virtually nothing with the TA05.

I just got mine built and was wondering a few things:
1) is sanding and gluing the chassis necessary and why
2) do I need the 46mm swing shafts to run the spool
3) what is the IDR on this car?
3) what is a good starting gearing for a 19t Checkpoint with this car

Hey Andrew,
Definitely glue the chassis, at least just the bottom piece. Even glued, I took a small piece out of the back of the chassis this weekend.

48mm swing shafts clear the spool.

IDR is 2.25, same as TA05.

19t gearing... you're on your own!

The 46 mm swingshafts aren't necessary, but they can reduce the chatter and possibly increase your steering angle depending on your settings.

Jose, I might have to get a step by step guide how to glue the chassis as I have never done it before. You just glue a bead around the edge of the chassis? What does this do for the chassis?

5.6 for the checkpoint at the Tamiya track (if its wide open, Reedy style).

you need to bring that 05MS to BCR tomorrow. there'll be 3 of them running in the 13.5 class

Yup, that's all I've ever done. Just use the tip of the glue bottle to smear it on the edge of the chassis or wet a cotton swab with crazy glue and apply it that way. I guess the chassis is made up of layers of carbon fiber and you're trying to prevent it from peeling.

And like Chris said, come on out to BCR this Saturday!!! You'll appreciate the grip. I think David J. said he was coming out this Saturday as well. Or was it Sunday?

I will try and get out to BCR next weekend once I figure out how this car works and what I am going to run in it. I might make the jump to brushless and hit 10.5 or 13.5 novak once this 19t burns out.

i found Q-tips was the easiest. i take the tip..and tighten up the cotton with my fingers (twist inbetween your fingers). then apply it to the chassis edge.

some people then go back...sand it with some 600 sand paper..and do it again. it gives it that shiny look.

Are you running the 2 or 3 hole pistons in the shocks? I just noticed I don't have any 2 hole pistons like I run usually with Tamiya 400wt oil.
