yeah, I wonder also if the LRP SPX will fit on this car, the ESC location seems tight.

Towerhobbies have limited stock. Got mine from there. Also check for coupon code. Should be able to get at least $30 off.

Thanks and cheers,

It's the short reversible arms with 46mm dogbones(& the ver2 kit's arms are the softer plastic too, not the carbon parts, so they should hold up well to the abuse, if I like 'em enough, I might just get more for my 416). And @ SKYFLAKES, I'm not 100% sure yet what ESC's will fit, but I use Novak GTB's, & when I get to that step I will be trying one in it, so I'd think if it fits, then most ESC's should, & I'll let you know once I get to that step.....

Ahh. That explains the difference in the part number between ta-05 ifs and v.2. Thanks a bunch for the info.

I've been spending a lot of time considering what to buy, to get into RCGT - and this is the chassis I pulled the trigger on. Tower Hobbies - and $30 off with a coupon code, can't beat that.

Can some of the experienced guys here chime in on what spares I should pick up and have handy? I've been mostly an off-road guy so I don't expect it'll be the same stuff

Hi everybody, I'm new to this forum and a real tamiya fan/driver. My cars are Stadium Blitzer, GTR35 on a TT01E chassis, and used to have a frog. And now its time for a new Tamiya car. I'm looking for the Ta05v2 or the TB03. I'm not sure yet. But on the TB03 thread I'm reading a lot of positive things about the TB03. I want to race in the GT2 class next year.

So my question is did anyone drive the new V2 yet?


Thanx

JD

I can't speak on certain parts(like the suspension arms, these are new, same design as the ones from the 416 but they're made of the softer more flexible plastic, so I don't know what difference it'll make in their durability), but I would suggest keeping some extra C-Hubs(caster blocks) & front uprights, & maybe some extra kingpins(when you lose an upright, many times the kingpins will disappear too), but that might be about it. And for JD & SKYFLAKES, I should learn a little this coming weekend, I think the car's on schedule & I've already decided I've had enough offroading for now, so I should have it ready to run by Saturday & will take her for a few test runs....

Brushless, definitely. Since my goal for this car is the GT2 class in Tamiya's TCS events, I'll likely stick to 17.5 motors in it, though I may also try a 21.5 & run it in the Vintage Trans Am class if possible(in other words, if we have a class this winter, we never really know what the guys will want to run).....
