the fun of hopping up a car? watching the performance gains?
The 05 is really strong platform. At the Tamiya Nats this year, in GT1, my 05 was as good as my 415ms. Lap times told the story. The only reason I finally elected to run my 415ms in the mains was do to familiarity. The 05 has a lot of steering, great bite and carries some good corner speed.

Its comments like these that made me decide to sell the Evo and try this car instead. I am sure the Evo is a great car too, but I have always prefered a belt car. Soo, bye bye Evo IVms - it was a pleasure building you.

Yeah, so far my fully hopped up TA05 is every bit as fast as my fully hopped up EvoIV. And it just drives sooo much more smoother! I will say it is heavier. But with my current setup and track rules... They now weigh the same. My EvoIV has a tad more acceleration. But my TA05 has a tad more corner speed. Give or take... it all comes out even on lap times.

One thing that I forgot to add was that the setup I ran at the Nats used the stock (hard) old suspension and dual one ways.

Cant wait to see the graphite chassis kit from Speedtech.

MDawson,Hebiki,KilRuf - anybody
I have asked this question in a thread I started but I am not getting much useful info. Is there any advantage to running dual oneways as opposed to just the front one? The dual oneway setup has to be heavier. I am getting ready to place an order for the front one and I am just trying to figure out if it is worth the money for the center one. Thanks

With flowing tracks and soft braking areas, the dual one ways will allow the car to roll more.

The mid or center oneway will allow more off power steering when used with a front one way.

dway.. there you go.

btw... ian (a teammate of mine) and myself ran the TA05 at a parking lot track we race at..and our times in stock were the same if not faster. ian even won a few races. i know for myself... a $11 tub is easier to replace than a $80 chassis.

If you are just playing around - throw steel universals front and rear and the upgraded diffs - you should be fine.
