yeah, the xray setup book explains the all the setup changes you can make regardless of which patform you own. of course, the instructions are for xray cars. but still, the concepts are the same for all cars.

The stock kit comes with a silver can motor so I guess you could say it fits.

Default will this Lipo fit?

Hi,
I am considering getting a TA-05 IFS but was hoping that I would be able to fit some of my lipos.
The packs measure 137mm long, 44.2mm wide and 26.6mm thick.

Can anybody tell me if this would fit a TA-05 without any mods?

Thanks.

You shouldn't have any problems running any lipos in that chassis.

I have the IFS-R and run big 5K Core RC hardcase lipos with NO problems. My friend runs the Trakpower hardcase lipos with no issues at all, and another track buddy runs Orion hardcase in his...

thanks for your help.
i wasn't sure if i would have problems fitting them under the rear bulkhead, maybe this problem only occurs with the TRF series chassis.

Did you have to loosen the battery bar screws?

In the TA05, the battery sits out in the open, so no worries about the bulkhead. As for the battery strap posts, their height is adjusted to fit different types of packs by using different spacers...

OK. But how much spacing till the lack of screw thread becomes an issue?

I dug around this thread a couldn't find mention of this ..... has anyone modified the 37T diff pulley for use with the spool ? It looks possible with not a lot of work. I ask because the 37T one way pulley is a bear to find (I have one on order from Hong Kong that is still a week or two out). I want to try the spool out while I wait and thought I'd ask as I can't be alone in looking for this item. By the way, I have the IFS-R.
