The pins at the end of the dog bone. The slot in the al diff is much wider than that in the plastic diff (stock or precision) and require the use of the cushions or else you will ruin the diff outdrives.

If you do decide to go with the al diff then buy extra cushions, you will need them.

You can use the regular TA05 al front bulkhead and not use the shock tower screw bosses, it will only look weird with the body off but only to those who know the difference.

Tamiya and others do make a front bulkhead without the shock tower screw bosses.

Guys, I have a problem. I have a IFSR and I've just installed the new front one-way. However, when I want to put back the one-way to the chassis, even though I've adjusted the mounting parts (A11 & A2), the belt is much looser compared to when I was using the ball diff. Anyone has used the front one-way on the IFS yet?

The pulley that comes with the TA05 one-way is 36T. The IFS-R comes with 37T pullies. You need to get the Durga 37T one-way pulley to make it work like before. Otherwise your front wheels will be turning slower than the rears...

The original TA05 pulleys only had 36 teeth. The IFS-R's pulleys have 37 teeth. To compensate for this, the IFS-R's belts are slightly longer than all other TA05's. This means that if you try to use the 36T pulleys, the belts will be loose.

You must get a 37T one-way pulley because the TA05 one-way comes with the older/smaller 36T...

This is what you need:

The dumb Tamiya USA emailed me and told me all TA05 parts can be used on the IFSR.

They are correct, you can use all the TA05 parts on the IFSR but you may need to use additional items to make it operate properly. Do the research, ask the right questions and you'll get the best results.

From your pictures of your build it looks like you don't follow instructions well and I'll bet you do not ask well phrased question either.

Do what I do, download the TA05R manual and compare part numbers, that way you'll see if it will be the one you want and if you need another item instead.

Yep, there's a big difference in these questions:

Can I put a TA05 one-way in an IFSR?
or
WIll the TA05 one-way work properly in an IFSR?

The answer to the first is, YES.

The answer to the second is, Yes but you will need a new belt.

Alternatively I can use the original 37T pulley and attach the one-way to the belt. It'll work too.

Yes, you're correct. I was merely showing an example of the difference wording makes in a question to receive more information.
