Any of those 2 will get you bashing and racing round the track. If you're going to start seriously racing I'd head down to your local track and see what they're running. You'll then be able to get set up (and possibly spares) help from the locals.

I'm currently running 2 TA06 PRO's at the belgian tamiyacup and they are a great value for money and great on the track.
At the belgian tamiyacup i'm running with a slower motor (16T sensorless brusless motor) and i could easily drive my car in a higher class with a more powerfull (they are using a 12T sensorless brushless) motor and still finish in top 4 and sometimes top 3.
With the same motor i would even be competing for winning the race.
I'm just pointing out that this chassis has more potential then most people would say or recomment.
The TA06 chassis is more balanced and has more flex then a TA05 (ver.II) and out of the box the car is allready great.

Yes it is, cause it has the better alu oil dampers (who are the best on the market) and other alu blue parts wich makes the car lighter and also very importand it has better drive train parts.
It has universal drive shafts wich are way better then the dogbones from the standard kit.
Mostly people are using other motor and tires, standard motor is a silvercan and tires from the kit are drivable but aren't the best ones.

If you can find a clean TA-05 V2 then this would be my first choice. The TA-06 is nice, but I don't like the boxy chassis and the bottom battery tray setup.

If you want to see if organized racing is going to be your thing you might consider the spur gear mod and add some TRF shocks and run your TT-01 to start.

I think it's the better choice and you won't be disapointed.
When you have the car and ready for building just let me know and i will give you my setup for a good starting point.

If you stick with the stock Tamiya gears you must use their proprietary 06 module pinions and you are also limited to the gears ratios you can use. The lowest FDR you can use is 5.11 which will not be low enough to be competitive.
