Anyone know of any parts that are hard to get for this car please? I run a TA05R and parts are very easy to come by, but the MS uses special belts of which there doesnt seem to be much availability.

Cheers!

The belts for the 05-MS are special order items, if you're in a bind for a front belt the front belt from the Tamiya DB-01 buggy is the same length it's just a little wider but does the job.

Ah, dang it. I am considering buying an MS but can only find one seller selling the belts, and no-one seems to make aramid belts either (unless the stock ones are?). This is probably enough to put me off buying what looks like a great car!

Thanks for your help!

Is there a comprehensive list of Tamiya belt lengths anywhere?

I'd like to swap in the 18T centre pulley to lower the IDR, in order to get better gearing for untimed 21.5 brushless. However, the standard belts are just that tiny bit too short and become too tight.

Alternatively, does anyone know which belt will fit well in this configuration?

phil.

What are yo looking for? You can use arms, knuckles, hubs, chubs from most any new car. Belts ar harder to find. I found some on ebay.

Just check the manual for the part numbers. I still have mine and even though I raced it solidly for 2 years with a 10.5 I only ever had to replaced a front knuckle. The only part that wore down was the aluminium drive cups (TA05 aluminium diff parts). The belts etc are still as good as new.

As for hop ups there isn't many, I replaced the suspension shafts with coated ones and the suspension pistons also with the coated ones. Other things are more cosmetic such as the carbon bumper mount.

It's a high spec car out of the box, just drive it and enjoy it

you don't need any hopups with this car. It's got everything you need. The parts that break can be replaced with parts from a 415, 416, and even the 417. The only difference is the suspension blocks. The MS can't use the split blocks. I liked this car because it handled great and it is also easy to put a lipo in it. You'll enjoy it
