TA05 is a freak of the RC world. How could anything be so strong, so cheap and handle as sweet as anything out of the box!?!?!

The TA-nk-05 is by far the most durable car ive seen but a bit on the weighty side.

I got a 008 and not even i can destroy it with a 3.5
but as soon as anything breaks. big $$$, Xray
Tamiya 415MRE- GTB +10.5- Spektrum = 19t
Tamiya F103gt - 17.5t -lipo(yah) = 2wd stock
Tamiya M03 -Spektrum - NiMh(boo)= Mini

Bodgy Brothers Racing......19t,Stock,Mini,540,2wd stock

Kyosho are the strongest by far.

They are built like tanks and weight as much to.

Untill recently they were not competitive as they were so heavy, great for a street basher but not really fast enough for racing.

I believe that has recently changed with the latest model.

A good all rounder I am happy with the TC4 running a stock class. Running mod rebuilding diffs wouldn't be fun but the car is great for stock.

The Mi3 now looks to be a very strong car as well.

The suspension arms in these kits will bend the hinge pins and suspension blocks and still won't break. This is even after milling out the center webbings for lightening. The older 1510 bearings are also way tougher than today's tiny bearings. You'll never have to replace a rear upright
I agreed. I swapped back to the TA04 arms, suspension blocks for my TA05R
