me too... never did have a cf kit before and I'm eager to have one but don't know which one to get... the 05ms or the msxx??? that is why I also don't know how cf kit handles in tracks... can't wait though to have those kits in my local country... (what's taking so long!?!?! wahhhh) haha... I'm going insane here just thinking of those two kits... OMG!!! hahaha... Anyway, hope someone here tells us how it handles (both kit) in the track...

oh, that was a problem in my servo, nothing to do with the chassis, the screw thread was a little in bad shape, so I change the gear in which the servo arm is attached. now it is like brand new...

the servo saver from tamiya (part 51000) has some free play (= slop) thus I start changing springs until I found a combination without any (I have several 51000s). Besides that, I add a 0.1mm shim on the left arm of the steering, to reduce slop (= movement) to a minimum.

let's see what happen tomorrow!!

wtf?? like what everybody said both cars are very capable. I guess, its just a matter of preference and how you setup and drive the car.

LMAO just get either or both and test it for urself

I'm sorry, it's just that I cannot get two kits at the same time and try them out for myself... I could only try one and for that I don't want to regret what I am going to get between the two kits... and it is my first time to have a cf kit if ever so I really dont know how cf kits perform... my bad

If you tried the ta05 you set it up just the same, primarily the only main difference is weight. In fact all TC's are undergoing the same process of setup.

so pick a car, both are Tamiyas with very good design and besides you cannot rely on otheres opinion because in the end it will be you wheeling the car on the racetracks.

yeah, I have a ta05 but not an R though and ran it already with a 23t motor... the result would be nice but not excellent for straight for I am always being left out in straight by the 415s, other cf kit brands but when in corners, I tend to give them a fight... That is what I want with my 05s setup... hehehe... or is it just my motor that is slow??? oh well, actually, that was just my first time competing in 23t with the pros, and it felt good... yeah... but for now, I need to raise some cash for either of these kits... I'm just a kid btw and I might let my mom and dad by the ta05ms for me and I'll buy the 415msxx myself... hahaha... hope they would agree with my plan...

thanks btw bro for the inputs...

oh okay. If that is the case then your ta05 is also very capable incase you dont know it. just run it with new set of tires, fresh packs, and motors and with a very good setup and good wheeling .......

then YOU ARE good to go. dont forget to pratice kid. Pros are always have an edge they wont just give up the race that easily.

Best thing to do right now is run with the fast guys and compete hard, its the fastest way to learn. IMHO

Goodluck
