Hi All,
I have decided to buy a TA05MS instead of the 416 because i've been running the tub one now for nearly 2 years and it is great. How easy are they to setup? i will be running indoors on medium traction carpet. This has probably been asked and answered (cant be bothered to back through all the posts), but does it use the same belts as the tub chassis version as they look different in the pics of it?

Cheers
Liam

This car really is a TA05 in name only. With the exception of the diffs, it's about as close to a TA05 as the 415. The belts ARE different lengths. The car is awesome though. I love mine (I even bought a second one). It's easy to setup and drive. I push mine really hard and it responds well. What I like is that it's a very dependable car. Consistency is what wins races and this car drives the same lap after lap. I've raced it in 13.5 stock only but my times have been very close to 10.5 times. There have been times where I've actually had a better overall time with my MS running stock then I did in 19T running my 10.5 car. I can't compare it with the 416 since I don't have one but I can say for sure, you won't be unhappy with the MS. My car is fast now and I really have only just started playing with setup changes. The car seems to just get faster each outing.

Looks as though i made the right choice. Could anyone give me the parts numbers for the front and rear belts as i can't find them where i have been looking.

Cheers,

Liam

I don't think the 415/416 setup is ideal for 10.5 or 13.5 because there is too much rear wheel traction. I think Tamiya designed the TA05MS to be their fastest car in those classes.

I don't know about the 416 but my 415 was dialed in stock too

I couldn't get my 415MS to handle well with a 27 turn on my small course. Always had problems with the lack of steering. My TA05MS was easy in comparison to set up on the same course.

See TryHard's website:

http://www.thard.co.uk/excel.html

There is ~.5 degrees difference between each letter. The widest is 1E and the narrowest is 1XD. For example, the stock TA05MS setup uses 1B for the rear rear mount and 1XD for the rear front mount giving ~3 degrees of toe in at the hingepin.

The TRF415 mounts are designated with a "1" before the letter (for example, "1A", "1B") and are 1 mm lower than the Evo mounts with just the letter (for example "A", "B").

Should be 1XB for rear front and 1D for rear rear.
