Another little tip, lube the threads on the turnbuckle for easier install and screw in the cup only a few turns on both sides to get the threads started. Then install them in the car and adjust them to correct lenght with the turnbuckle tool. This saves your fingers from hurting.

Tamiya also has a nice little tool to install the ball cups on the turnbuckles...
It holds the ballcup for you so no hurting fingers...

Not sure you can get them seperate, as they tend to be included with kits, such as the TT01 etc.

Thanks Ed,
I had wondered that. It means I already have them . I'jj

Can you and others outline how the TA05MS compares to the 415 and 416 cars. I am curious as to if the 415/416 offer tuning options over the TA05MS.

I think the main difference between the 415MSXX and the 05MS is the weight distribution. Both are highly adjustable. I don't know anyone with a 416, nor have I owned one, so I can't comment on that.

I used to have a 415MS and I find the 05MS weight distribution to be better for our small course. My friend just got a hold of a 415MSXX MRE, but he hasn't got it dialed for that track. Hopefully once it's running well, we'll see the difference between the latest 415 and the 05MS.

Are you talking about the blue heat sink for the motor? If so, yes, you can use that on the 05MS. There are a lot of options available for this car: aluminum servo mounts, spool, diff balls, flourine coated ball nuts, center one-way (I think you can use the regular TA05 center one-way), Ti suspension shafts, hard coated dampers, Ti/Al screws, etc. The trick to getting parts for this is car is figuring out which ones come from the Evo IV, Evo V, TA05, or the TRF415.

There is an aluminium airduct 3454480
CF Bumper Support 4304089
and various other parts from evos and 415 as mentioned.

I am not sure if the TA05 center one way works, as the shaft is of different design. Tamiya released a center one way for the TA05 porsche 934 - 53952.
We have that on order and will be able to compare to the standard 05 center oneway soon.
