I am getting quite confused with all the different car types listed in the parts section for AmpDraw.

Edit: I should add that I am looking for parts for the TA-05 IFS v2. There are so many other car types listed for parts on this chassis type.
diff rings, C hubs, possibly steering arms and maybe a packet of rear hubs would probably be the main items imo.

probably best to have a look through an online pdf manual for the car, all the part # will be listed on that...

Would really appreciate if somebody could scan the last few pages of the manual with the parts, since Tamiya have not yet posted a PDF of it.

Thanks!

Has anyone else noticed this car's layout is exactly like the old Club Enthuse 4 from the late 90's?

Does anyone know the length of the 2 belts on VDF?

Are they longer or shorter than the standard TA05 belt

I just saw the Tamiya TA-05 VDF available:

http://www.rc-toro.com/product_info....oducts_id=2285

I really like the design/componenets layout of the car. I never drift before. Would this be a good car to start?

BTW, I have 10+ yrs experience in nitro touring.

Is the VDF capable of CS just by adjusting camber,toe.etc? Or do we need to meddle with the pulleys?
