The Ta05 is lighter...JUST
The TA04 is heavier by a fair bit

Weight is all dependant on electronics, thickness of shell tyres etc

I thought the tao4 was the lightest among the 3.
Not installing anything is the tao5 the same as a tbo2? Of course electronics, etc are also factors but how about just the kit is there a significant weight difference? I just feel my tbo2 accelerates slower than my tbevo same gearing,etc. It could be the weight I'm thinking.

The Ta04 I was comparing against wasa the R version, without any electronics it felt heavier than a TB02 with full electronics without batts

Default Quick Question

Can I run a 27 turn stock motor (NOT a silver can motor) with the plastic motor mount or do I need the aluminum one?

Thanks.

02 is slightly lighter but not drastically. Use the aluminum motor mount. I mean you can put a mod motor in a stock TT01 but that doesn't mean you should.

My question was basically, will the plastic motor mount melt with a stock motor?

I know from experience that when it gets hot and is under torque, it tends to twist and the pinion shaves the spur.

OK, thanks. I run a stock motor in my TB-02, but it has the aluminum motor mount. I just got a used TB-02 for my son, but I guess I better wait till I get the aluminum motor mount before he drives it.

Thanks for the input.

Did I get this right? A tao4 r without electronics is heavier than a tbo2 with elec without batts? How is that possible?
i thought the tbo2 was the heaviest of the current tamiya tub chassis kits. Even the tt01 was lighter than this piggy. Hehe.

Hi Chaps

Just acquired a TB02 for some serious drifting to accompany my TA05 touring car, was wondering what pitch gears come as standard on this beast, is it .6module or 48d.p. ??

Thanks in advance.

Hi.

Im currently racing my TBO2R in a UK carpet championship running 27 turn stock motors. It is very competitive against yokomo BD's and TC4's, Im currently placed 7th in a 70 car championship. My problem is that I am regularly shearing the 2mm diff screws. Usually one a meeting. Out of frustration I gave my diffs to my mate who runs an evo 3 and he reckons they are built and tensioned correctly. I have swapped to standard evo3 diff cups from the TBO2R ones but still the screws break. The only thing I can see is that an evo 3 runs no shims according to the manual behind the diff bearings. The TBO2R runs 2 X 0.1mm shims. I have now removed these and have yet to try the car at the next meeting in 2 weeks. Have any of you guys had this problem.

cheers

Dave

Yes this is a problem
I have usually found that the thrust bearing is in backwards.
the screw head should be on the side of the thrust bearing that has the taper on the ID
Also make sure the thrust bearing is well graesed with Aw or something similar.
