You need XR972050 X-Ray 5x2mm Clear O-Rings

I've used the orange 42259 TRF O-rings in Grizzbob's post above and they have worked well for me
sweet!!! i'd rather keep the car as TCS-legal as possible

I know I saw stuff before, just couldn't find it when i searched the other day

plus, i've built gear diff before and none leak as much as this diff

I have built and raced these diffs front and rear. Only using the stock rings and building them per the diff building guide on tamiya website and never had a leak. 3000 rear 500000 front. 99% of leak is from overfill. you have to fill them slowly only to just below the top of the 4 small gears aprox 1mm. use green slime on the red orings(lots do not be cheap with this step) and antiwear grease on the brass bushings. NEVER replace the bushings with bearings. Retighten the diff screws after the first race day as they will seat and need a slight torque.

Just wondering.

I just installed the rear carbon damper stay (p/n 53846) on my TA05 v2. Do I need to get the short dampeners or can I use the regular length ones? Seems a little too springy. What spring would everyone recommend?

Trying to get this older chassis to run VTA.

Thanks

I still prefer this car over the 06/07. Itís simple and straightforward. Iím building one for TCS GT2 next month!

I ordered the carbon A parts myself a few days ago.

I just recently built a ta05 ifs and really love this chassis very smooth and probably my fav runner so far! I was looking at the 06 but think the 05 is what I want.

Forget the 06.. itís over engineered and not that good. The 07 is much better. Still prefer the 05 layout

I donít dispute the 07s abilities. There are a few at our track and those that drive them, love them.

The era of 05 emphasis was on chassis stiffness and rigidity.

Now days chassis needs to be stiff vertically but have tuneable flex horizontal etc. 07 in the respect is far superior as well as other.

I picked up the gear differential unit and it comes with steel outdrives. Does anyone know which aluminum outdrives will work? Id like to run it with CVD protectors and the steel outdrives are not designed for it.
