Hi there,

Sorry for the flack you got here as a newcomer. This forum is not very newbie friendly I'm affraid.

I run the TT01 chassis at eurcup and although I really like it for racing against other tt01 cars I would not want to be stuck with one otherwise. If you do buy a tt01 or a ta05 chassis it would be great to meet you at one of the eurcup rounds next year. www.tamiyaeurocup.co.uk.

Default Poor Newbie

Hey bro

If you have access to the TA05 setup bible you can check the downforce values for the individual bodies that come with the various kits. Unfortunately I lost mine. That might help you in choosing which kit to use becuase the body shape does make a difference.

Definately go with the TA05R if you can. I bought one off ebay. Its an awesome buy, trf shocks, low friction belts, lightweight suspension. It will cost you less in the long run to buy the kit and a body than to buy a standard kit and then add the hop ups afterwards.

Someone was saying to go with a cyclone? I had a cyclone s, I would go with the TA05 anyday, at least the diffs in the 05 are reliable.

I dont know much about the TA05IFS other than having built one for my mate. I didnt have a chance to play with it. THe body looks phat though.

Hope that helps, and dont be discouraged by the flack.
