Perhaps a V2 MS is still in the works.
Ya think that the TRF417 or any TRF chassis would match up/ be compatible w/ the TA05v.2?

Unfortunately no, TRF417 has different front and rear bulk heads and motor mount to the v2.
You might be able to drill the chassis to mount the bulkheads but there is nowhere on the v2 bulkhead to mount the top deck.

I'm guessing that tamiya will eventually bring out a TRF chassis just have to hurry up and wait.

The new TRF417 has TA05MS bulkheads. The ta05ms was a pure TRF developed car. I think Tamiya now only offers 'R' or pro versions of it's club chassis cars.

I think if you want to get a V2 ms then buy the exotech lipo chassis and tamiya hop-ups and you will have a smart looking ride.

Can anyone tell me if there's an option part for the stabilizer hold-downs to match the aluminum stabilizer mounts? I got the stabilizers and the mounts, however I discovered that the parts the kit documentation said were "not used" - the stays - were actually going to be needed if I added sway bars. So of course, they're long gone.

I ordered the Novak/ESC and all the parts kdeselms(thanks!) suggested(1 page back) plus a few other things(bushings,titanium screw, e-rings, 4mm alum. wheel nuts, alum. hubs and couple sets of tires).. I got 2 low friction belts and was just wondering what the difference between the low friction belts and the provided white belts from the kit?
I'm hoping all these will get me through a few crashes(which I'm expecting as its been 5 years since I last touched a RC remote)

Thanks

+1 I would like to eventually get sway bars but don't know what else I would need to purchase.

The low friction belts are stronger and don't stretch out as easily as the white ones, due to the material. As for what you need with the sway bars - you will want to keep the plastic pieces from the kit (sprue B, I think) which I no longer have and am trying to find a replacement for Then you'd want to get aluminum mounts to replace the plastic ones that come with the kit (2x #53916), the sway bar kit (#53844) and the sway bar stoppers (#53827) to keep them from moving left and right in the holders. You don't HAVE to replace the mounts, but I did.

Yeah I would want to get the aluminum mounts too.
Thanks again!

What GT bodies are you all running?

I'm still running my classic HPI Honda Accord body, 1997-style Accord, which was a pain in the butt to find...

I started using RPM's body savers too, since I believe I bought the last one to exist in this world... Unless HPI would like to re-run it...

My favorite body right now is the 2007 NSX (in either the Raybrig or the Takata Dome livery), until the Raybrig HSV-010 comes out later this year. I also like the EBBRO 350R a lot.

Question for everybody not using the aluminum rocker arms (which I cannot seem to find in stock anywhere on the web, including Tamiya). Is there an option bearing set of four bearings for the regular plastic rocker arms, rather than the copper slugs it comes with? I'd like to put bearings in there. Also, what size shims would I need to get rid of the up/down slop in the rocker arms?

These are the shims you need for the rocker arms.

Thanks, guys.

Has anyone used the Exotech replacement chassis? I haven't read many reactions or any reviews, curious if people feel it's worthwhile? I want to stick with the IFS-style shocks, just because I like the low-profile bodies so much, but my tub chassis has a ton of tweak in it and I'm wondering if I'm just stuck having to upgrade to a better car, or if this would solve it.
