Im very interested in your custom shocktowers to use the SSBB dampers.
Do you sell these parts to help fellow TA05 racers?
I do not make or sell parts for the TA05 V2. I bought the carbon chassis set from a nice member here

Cheers kids, a decade (or more) late to the party here but for nostalgia's sake (and because I hate my wallet) I figure I'll put that ta05 on my shelf I wanted way back when but worked weekends and couldn't race so I couldn't justify buying one but...

When looking at used cars on the innerwebs it's very easy to glance at a V1 and tell whether or not it has been upgraded to the carbon reinforced chassis but is there a similar 'tell' on the V2 reinforced chassis that is as easy to spot at a glance as the triangular motor scoop/vent is on the V1 carbon tub?

The chassis itself will be less glossy black ad have a grayish hue / weave to it

I'm familiar with visual material difference in the Tamiya materials but that's not always obvious in interweb pics. For example the extra cutouts in the V1 CF tub is easy to spot... I guess there's not an easy "near the motor there is an extra lightening slot" or "The CF tub is missing ribs in the battery area and allows a square lipo" sort of quick and easy ID like the V1 hop up tub? No worries, just hoping for a quick cheat to allow fast scanning of listings like the V1 tub has.

Yeah, I figured I'd only find one as part of parts car, it's just so obvious on the V1 that I had hoped for something similar.

I know I still have a TRF414 NIB SSG chassis and NIB front and rear bulkheads somewhere. Maybe even SSG shock towers These where from when Jimmy Jacobson and I pit together back in the day.

Sorry everybody. Juan and I go way back.


Sorry, back to the TA-05 ver.2

Donít have experience on 3racing spool
took a little bit off one side. Not too much. I took a tiny bit off too much and had to ad a shim back. Drops right in and spins perfect. I use the same belt for front and rear
