the only plastic pieces that are different from the MSXX are upper bumper holder and servo holder....

the servo holder I will use some aluminum ones I have from an older project (tamiya as well) and i even prefer the plastic bumper holder, mainly because I put my transponder at the front, and plastic is more "transparent" than carbon to the transponder.... I even use the plastic one on my MSXX....

the 05MS can be a good option, donīt get down because these small plastic bits... everything else is MSXX alike...

cheers,

distributor fights or decisions... for example, in my country, almost no LHS carries tamiya, due the distributor policy with prices... perhaps is your case as well....

well maybe because the demand of the new products are much much higher in the U.S. and in Europe so might be thats the reason why they always have the new products first and since only a few of us wants it we almost always have it delayed or last to received it

Like comparing a WRX to an Excel

IMO the TA05 MS is just a super hopped up Excel, underneath all the bling it's still a TA05

The MSXX is and was a supurb racer, a WRX.

What's an Excel?

I think I get what you're saying, but inferring from the fact that I have no idea what an Excel is, that may be an unfair comparison. It might be more fair to say that the TA05 is to the MSX as the Silvia is to a Skyline.

Anyway, has anyone really examined the performance (actual, not theoretical) of the TA05MS yet?

An Excel is the cheapest model of Hyandai in Australia.

Back on the TA05-bashing pills again then I see?

It's clear that the TA05MS is nothing like a normal TA05, and shares only a tiny amount of parts with the TA05-R.

As far as I can tell the only TA05-compatible chassis and drivetrain parts on it are the diffs and the new aluminium front and rear bulkheads. The whole weight distribution, and belt arrangement is new, and the LW suspension is just that, the same suspension all the top Tamiya cars run.

This car is a totally different beast and should be treated as such. Let's see what it does on the track before making rash comments about it's merits.

Wouldn't it be funny if your beloved TRF415 got spanked by an MS and you had to eat your words!

not really... it's just that I cannot join stock touring anymore in TAC next year... so I'm just getting ready for the war next year if ever... hehehe... and about the sub-c... it depends... I don't charge my batts at 6A higher just to get some punch from the batts... I only charge my batts at 3A - 4A only but I am competing with people who charges their batts at 5A - 6A... No offense to those who charges their batts at a high rate, for me, I just don't see any difference, you're just killing the batts quickly... Anyway, about the kit, well I think I already made a choice here, msxx is my choice... Oh and btw, I also just want to have one of the high end kits of TRF...

well from my point of view, never under estimate an enemy or a competitor the MS might be badged as a TA-05 but a lot of its parts are common with the 415 lets just see what it can do when its finally run by the racers themselves

I have to disagree here... which parts do you say are worst quality on the 05MS?? I have the MSXX and the 05MS and all suspension is exactly the same, dampers, steering... the only things that really change are upper and lower deck, bulkheads (and I like them a lot) and motor mount.... if you're complaining for the plastic servo holders and upper bumper holder, you can buy the aluminum servo holders for 2.50 euros and the carbon bumper for 6 euros or so... plastic battery parts I didn't even opened them, as I use 5 cell and tape...
